Rated 3 out of 5 by from Customer Service My parents and I had third federal before and it was great experience that is the main reason why I choose it again. I had hard time dealing with the loan officer on multiple occasions (ex: proof of employment was not received on time and no one notified me, and once I told her that she needs to contact our HR department and that they need to send over a form with my signature "form of the release of information" she got all defensive and said that she doesn't work for that department, second time it was when preliminary closing costs were calculated and I tried to understand the fees (like any normal person would be once writing a big check like that) the address was wrong it was pulling in Hudson taxes and once I told her about it she got defensive again how it is only a preliminary calculation never admitting the mistake, even though I kept telling her its the wrong address the paperwork was emailed to me and to the title agency with wrong information. Third time was after the closing and everything no one explained to us how will the payment be withdrawn from our account, no one asked for the account information I had to call and talk to three people before they said that they will email me with instructions. Other stuff were going on when I had to call multiple times to resolve something, I felt like there was a lack of communication and that my loan officer didn't really make it an easier experience. If I didn't pay attention we wouldn't be able to close on time, the wrong address would be on the paperwork and we would probably miss the first payment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best products, rates and service We were purchasing a new home and shut the market extensively to find the best mortgage available in terms of interest-rate and options available. Third federal is by far the best solution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mortgage Application Process This was our 4th mortgage through Third Federal and it was the most difficult & arduous to obtain despite our excellent credit history and assets. You have bureaucratized your processes at the expense of customer friendliness & common sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent customer experience! Rates were great but what stood out the most to me was the ease of the process and the excellent service and experience I received. Jason was awesome ! He walked me through the process beginning to end and it certainly took a load of stress off my shoulders buying a new home !! I’m SO happy with Third Federal because of this positive experience and this is why I didn’t want to go with another lender. They treated me like family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations Third Federal exceeded my expectations throughout every aspect of buying my home. They were friendly, responsive, timely, and offered the best rate by far! The real estate agents and title company both commented on how lovely Third Federal was to work with. They even worked to find me assistance programs I qualified for. I highly recommend Third Federal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from low rates I have used Third Federal over the years and they use to be very slow. You folks have certainly made the process so much easier. I like you company because you insist on doing the auto deduct and I think it keeps your rates very good Liz is who helped me and she was great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service The entire loan mortgage process was so easy with quite a bit of it doing it on-line without even having to stop in to the branch except for a few things. Plus did check out the rates of a few competitors and Third Fed pretty much blows them out of the water. Been doing my entire banking through Third Fed for almost 50+ years now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely helpful & professional We were able to get a lower rate and lower closing costs along with great customer service with Third Federal. I would highly recommend over those other companies who might claim that they are bigger and better. We looked into those and they might be bigger, but bigger does not equal better - and it doesn't mean lower rates either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient, Easy to navigate, & Pleasant Experience This was my first time purchasing a home and I felt like I was in responsible hands the whole time. The online loan portal made signing documents so convenient and I could revisit them as often as I wanted. My loan officer was easily reached by phone or email and this was so appreciated when new questions came up. Everything was handled with such integrity that on closing day, I felt comfortable that I received the exact terms that I asked for. I also compared interest rates across other banks and Third Federal was the lowest. Overall, my experience was stress-free, professional, and communicative from start to finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing customer service ! My loan officer was very knowledgeable and patient with all my first time home buyer questions. Michael had fantastic communication skill and his responses to my emails were quick. I will be recommending them to all my friends and family and co workers. Everyone will tell you home financing is a huge hassle. It was not with this company, I was so relieved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not be more pleased with the service Purchased a second home in Florida - we needed a Florida mortgage company ( we live in NY) and selected Third Federal and a few others from a website. The experience with Third Federal proved to be fantastic and placed them well ahead of the other lenders, not just the rate and closing costs but the quality of service from your teams made the difference for us. Kassandra and others went out of their way to help with the process as we did it remotely from NY. It was totally painless. Better service than my current bank of 35 years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Closing Cost Discount - Poor Communication Overall, I am happy I received my mortgage loan from Third Federal based on their rates. I also was informed by my loan office of a closing cost discount if I took an online course which saved me $3,000. That was a huge plus for me and a great recommendation that I very much appreciated! My major complaint is the lack of contact and communication along the way. I barely spoke to my loan officer and this was my first time purchasing a home. Most of the documents were sent and signed electronically. Which, was very convenient. However, I did not think the process should be as hands off as it was considering this is the biggest purchase I'll ever make! For instance, my closing costs changed last minute with no explanation. I found out from the titel company, not my loan officer, the day before my closing. I had to call and dig out the details myself from my loan officer and then they emailed me the updated copy. Also, my new Third Federal savings account ended up closing (nearly a full month before my first payment was due) because there was no balance. Unbeknownst to me, I had to make a deposit within a certain amount of time or the account would close. To be fair, this could have been in one of the documents electronically sent to me and I probably missed it. When there are thirty pages to read, I would have appreciated an important details highlight from the loan officer or a phone conversation on what to expect, what to look out for, important dates, etc. It felt to me as if I should have figured it all out on my own simply because the documents were electronicaqlly sent to me. Even though I'm working with someone who is making a commission off my loan. Didn't feel right to me ESPECIALLY because I'm a first time home owner! In the end, I felt like a number and not a customer.
