Lewis is excellent at making the arcane simple and quickly creating an on-line strategy. It took him less than one day to get me from nothing to an optimized on-line social presence. Lewis is easy to work with and quite knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!
Daryl Beier
It has always been a great pleasure to maintain a business relationship with Lewis Poretz, through the mortgage brokering and banking business. And it has always been an honor, privilege and enormous pleasure knowing and working with Lewis. The interactions I’ve had with him have been such a joy and the work that Lewis does is simply outstanding. His knowledge and expertise in the area of mortgages is 2nd to none. I would heartily and enthusiastically recommend Lewis Poretz to anyone in need of a home mortgage, mortgage related counseling or any other type of mortgage financing that Lewis has access to.
Steve Greene - Sr. Vice President, Branch Manager
Lewis takes the cliche' of "working outside the box" seriously. He purposely avoids the standard lender routines to connect with his customers on personal as well as professional level.
Ed Connors - Advertising Director
Lewis has the one quality that I look for in any customer service situation: Willingness. Lewis will not quit on you. He will give you every effort to find a solution to your needs, in our case a re-finance of an existing mortgage. My wife and I found Lewis to be a nice guy to sit down with, personable and affable, honest and forthright. Slick he's not. Trustworthy he is.
Eric Gates - President
I've known Lewis for a few years through our membership in the Maryland Association of Mortgage Professionals. Lewis stands out from others in our industry because he is extremely ethical and is out to do what is right. His frequent email newsletters are timely, well written and informative and he takes the time to do these himself. I'd recommend Lewis to anyone looking for a mortgage who wants to know that they'll be treated fairly and get excellent service from their mortgage provider, neither of which is easy to be assured of elsewhere.
