We worked with Michael Tadros from Gateway Capital Mortgage to get a loan for the purchase of our new home. Michael & his team were wonderful to work with from beginning to end! He was quick to send out our pre approval letters as we went through the offer process and was very responsive when ever we had questions. Michael & his loan officer Nicole Bartlett kept everything moving quickly. When we indicated we wanted to pay our funds to the title company early they made sure to get all their numbers to the title company early so we could finalize our closing statement. They also coordinated the loan closing package with the title company so everything was seamless for our closing. Their prices were fair and what we were told up front. Michael kept us informed regarding interest rates & we never had to pay points. There were also no hidden fees. I recommend Michael & Nicole from Gateway Capital Mortgage and I would use them again! The best thing we did was connect with Michael Tadros before we started out home search process so we could get pre approved for our loan, He also referred us to a great realtor so our entire experience from picking our home to closing was wonderful! Thank you Michael & Nicole!!!


I want to thank you for all your assistance with my mortgage. You and your team have made this process extremely easy and smooth. I have only heard horror stories about how difficult and stressful the process of securing a mortgage and buying a house is, but this was not the case for me. I appreciate you taking the time to answer my many questions and for clearly explaining what everything meant. I am very happy to have found Gateway Capital before starting the home buying process.


"Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Gateway Capital Mortgage for my home loan needs, and I cannot express how satisfied I am with their services. From the moment I reached out to them, their team was extremely responsive and attentive to my needs. They took the time to listen to my concerns and helped me understand all the options available to me. The loan process was seamless, and the team at Gateway Capital Mortgage made sure that I was informed every step of the way. They were always available to answer any questions I had and provided me with regular updates on the progress of my application. What impressed me the most was their commitment to finding the best loan program for me. They worked hard to secure me a competitive interest rate and helped me get approved for the loan that met my financial goals. Overall, I highly recommend Gateway Capital Mortgage to anyone in need of mortgage services. They have a knowledgeable team, excellent customer service, and an unwavering dedication to their clients.

"Kaleb was very helpful in our house buying process, giving us various mortgage options according to what we requested. He was always quick to reply to our questions. We finally got our mortgage through Kaleb. He was also great to deal with as a Realtor when we looked at a complicated house purchase, suggesting creative ways to make the sale work. (We did not buy that house but through no fault of Kaleb's.)"

"I worked with Mark for the last 2 months on securing a mortgage while rates were at all time highs. Mark was very transparent with the current situation and was able to provide me the best rate in a challenging time. I often reached out to Mark about the status of the rates and we were able to secure a better than market rate at the time. He was diligent, timely and quick to offer beneficial advise on the loan process. I would strongly recommend mark and look forward to working with him in the future. "

Dan Eliopulos from Lemont, IL

"Kaleb helped me get into my first house when I wasn't confident I would qualify. He has great understanding of the mortgage process, is straight forward and very helpful. I would recommend him to family and friends. "

"Kaleb really helped me land a mortgage that worked for me. We walked through my monthly income and expenses to build a budget and determine how large of a mortgage I could carry and still live life on my terms. With Kaleb's help I was able to set the parameters on my price point. After I found the perfect house, Kaleb walked me through the closing process and the closing statement. More importantly, he showed me where I could save money and was very respectful throughout the entire process. Your honesty, guidance and assistance made this home buying experience very enjoyable, thank you Kaleb! "

John C. from Largo, FL

"Mark and his team were very professional and helpful during our loan process. The process was complex due to 1030 exchange. I highly recommend him and his team."

Rosalina Luis from Weston, FL

"Transparent, professional, and highly efficient, are the words I would use to describe my experience with Mark. From the very beginning he was crystal clear about every aspect of the loan, and once he outlined the document requirements, they were submitted in a timely manner and there was virtually no other requirements, just as he had explained in our first conversation. The processing of the loan was smooth and expeditious, bundled with a pleasant and professional experience. After purchasing or refinancing a dozen plus properties over the course of my life, this was my very best experience ever. Thanks Mark, you and your team were outstanding!"

"My wife and I recently closed on a home purchase in Pasco County, FL and we could not be happier with the service and results we received from Mark Halim and his team at Gateway Capital Mortgage. From start to finish, Mark was friendly, transparent and informative. He was always available for my questions and never made me feel rushed. I won't hesitate to work with Mark and his team again the next time I have a need and I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a home loan."

"Mark was great and very professional and took care of everything. My case was a little tricky because I had a lien on my house that had to be paid before refinancing, Mark got this included in the refinance and raised the appraisal value of my property to get me to the 20% equity value to keep me from having to pay the mortgage insurance. I was very satisfied with the service and the rate I got. I highly recommend Mark!"

J Penrow from Evans, GA

"Mark is a professional in what he does for home owners on refinancing. He is great and has saved me plenty of money. He did 3 VA refinances With me and completed them in record time. I would do another VA refinance with Mark but i know that it's almost impossible to get a lower interest rate than what i have now @ 2.25%. Thanks again Mark!!!"

Ray Ballantine from Joliet, IL

"I had a great experience working with Mark Halim and his team at Gateway Capital Mortgage. This was, by far, the easiest and least expensive refinance I've ever done. I highly recommend this lender if anyone is looking to refinance!"

Max from Plainfield, IL

"Chris and Jill helped me refinance 2 loans at the same time. Got me an exceptional rate and he was always so detailed with his emails and took the the time to help and communicate effectively. I was hesitant of refinancing from previous refinancing and loans due to bad service or negligence. But this was such an easy experience!"

"We were helped by Chris Rezk at Gateway Capital. Chris had our best interests, pun intended, from the get go. He had our backs when the appraisal company tried to gouge us and got our appraisal for more than half off the price originally quoted. He was very responsive with any questions we had and is a true professional. Thank you Chris and Gateway Capital."

David Muiznieks

"Chris and his team did a great job and the entire re-fi process went smoothly. Their "closer" was even able to meet us at a public site to ensure a safe environment during these crazy times."

John Husar

" I wanted to drop you a note to say a big THANK YOU for the work ya'll did to make our refi go so smoothly! The 3 of you are some of the most professional, competent and easy to work with individuals Ive ever had the pleasure to deal with. Your communication, diligence and attention to detail made the entire process effortless. Companies are people and you are great representatives for Gateway - I have nothing but high marks for Gateway because of you. Chris - you were always available phone or email to discuss the closing, terms etc! Julie - you kept the entire thing moving and never let anything fall through the cracks. Nevene - perhaps the most impressive of the bunch! You took over when Julie was out - I was worried, but you did not miss a beat and kept the entire process going. I have one favor to ask - would you forward me the contacts for your direct supervisors/dept heads? I would like them to know what an absolutely fabulous job each of did!"

Julie and Chris Nevene

"Hi Nicole, The final documents to review, before the signing event on Monday----excellent job !!! Slightly disappointed that the stars did not align to get the float down option; the interest rates have been crazy all month. We are truly thankful for the rate we were able to receive from Gateway Capital....and the outstanding service from all, who were involved in making this refinance happen--many, many heartfelt thanks !!! Best wishes for a wonderful weekend to you, Michael, & staff."

James Kraus

"I was a little worried about refinancing, but this turned out to be a really good experience. Michael at Gateway did everything he promised and then some. The expenses and the rate were both actually lower than originally quoted. There is paperwork to fill out, but it's only a one-time thing compared to saving lots of money every month for many years to come. Well worth the effort with Gateway."

Terrence Miller

"They have helped me with 5 loans/refinances over the last 10 years. Each time they have had the lowest rate and fair fees. They know their stuff, and the staff is on top of it! Thanks for the great work!"

"We recently closed on a home mortgage refinance with the help from Chris Rezk. We worked with Chris in the past so this was a no-brainer to return for his help. If there were any questions or concerns from us, Chris would always respond in a professional and timely manner. With his assistance the process from start-to-finish took just under five weeks ! If we ever have a need for mortgage guidance in the future, without hesitation, we’ll contact Chris. Chris, thanks again from two very satisfied clients."

Lary & Denise M.

"We recently applied for a mortgage with Gateway Mortgage and worked with two employees, Chris Rezk and Jill Statz. I wanted to let you know how great these two were when helping us apply for the mortgage. We closed on June 20th (would have emailed you sooner but we have been busy with the new house/moving, etc.) The closing went without a hitch. Both Chris and Jill were extremely professional and pleasant to work with and made it so easy to get through what is usually a very stressful process. Chris worked hard to get us the best possible mortgage to meet our needs and Jill kept us organized with all the necessary paperwork. We have never had such a pleasant experience applying for a mortgage and over the last 50 years, we have applied for at least 12-14 new mortgages and refinances. We appreciated all they help very much. They are two outstanding employees."

"Chris Rezk at Gateway Capital is a superb mortgage specialist. I have worked with professionals at other mortgage brokers, but Chris is by far the best that I have found. Chris is extremely responsive as a service professional. He not only always kept me well informed, but frequently offered valuable insights. Chris is also highly intelligent with a keen understanding of the mortgage business. Most importantly, he always put in an exceptional effort to make sure that I obtained the best available mortgage terms. I am pleased to give Chris my unqualified recommendation.

"I recently was fortunate enough to obtain a refinance loan through the assistance of Charles Tadros, at Gateway Capital Mortgage. As an attorney I tend to question every aspect of a deal and trust very little. I will have to say however that Charles and Gateway Capital came through with flying colors.
