My experience with Block Financial was good. It was a long process, but Ava was helpful throughout the process with multiple options. Planning to work with them again in the future.

Thorough and kind mortgage experience

Trusted Customer - Saturday, February 17, 2024

I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Ava at Block Financial Resources. I had reached out to Ava very early in our housing search, and even though I wasn't ready to make a move yet, she was incredibly responsive to questions and was incredibly patient at explaining lending processes to a first-time prospective buyer. When we finally took the plunge, Ava was with us every step of the way. This process was so much smoother thanks to her attentiveness and kindness -- I absolutely would recommend that anyone looking for a mortgage (especially for a co-op!) look no further than this team.

Absolutely amazing.

Sean and the entire Block Financial Resources team were outstanding. From start to finish he answered all of our questions and was extremely responsive! As first time home buyers we were very unaware of the mortgage process, but Sean made it a breeze! Highly recommend working with Sean and his team for all your home buying needs!

They saved my @ss

Trusted Borrower - Thursday, August 17, 2023

I have used Block Financials several times now on both purchase and refinancing of mortgage. I first used them 10 years ago when I purchased my coop as a first time home buyer. I found Sean's review online at the time, he had perfect 5 stars. I found it very suspicious that maybe he asked his friends to write 5 star reviews for him, so I proceeded with caution, while benchmarking his work vs other mortgage officers. But as I worked with him I realized that those reviews were legit. Not only was he knowledgeable, courteous, and professional, but he got us the best rates/terms by far at the time. Subsequent to that, I used him to refinance my property twice and have referred several of my friends to him for their purchases. Fast forward 10 years, I now am ready to move onto next Chapter of life with my growing family, and found a house to move into. Instead of just going to Sean, I decided to shop around mortgage this time, shame on me, because both rates and home prices are at all time high and even a little lower rate can save me hundreds of dollars of difference monthly. And in fact, I found a mortgage officer that had a lender that gave me a better rate/term than Sean's firm was able to offer. So I told Sean I'm sorry, I decided to go with a different mortgage officer this time, because they offered a better rate. That same day Sean gave me a call, a very courteous call, not nasty call like you would imagine someone would give after you turned down their business. He told me that he did his diligence and he thought he already looked at the lender the other mortgage officer was quoting me on, and didn't think that I'd qualify for a mortgage with that lender due to my special circumstances. Sean said he just wanted to make sure I wasn't in the situation towards the end of closing to realize that I didn't have a lender. And sure enough, when I called the other mortgage officer and asked to check into this, he looked into me, and gave me a quote from a different lender, higher rate and less favorable terms. No sorry, no sense of shame, what would have happened to me, if Sean didn't give me that call and I went with the other mortgage officer...? I probably would have had to breach the contract on the purchase of the house and lose my 10% down payment and the home that I thought would be mine. So long story short, Sean saved my @ss big time. He has a team that is way more diligent and thorough than anyone else in the industry. I can rest assure that he will get me the best rates and when he tells me I can get a mortgage, I know I can. Next time, I won't shop around. I know I will go back straight to him, just like I did years ago. Sorry for doubting you and your team this time. Lastly, big shout out to his colleague Ava. I have not worked as closely with her until this time around, but she really stepped it up and took me through the end. She is thorough, diligent, and very quick with responding if you have any questions. Good to know that Sean has hired someone just as good as he is to help out his growing number of customers. And as always, if I know a friend looking to buy or refinance, I've ALWAYS referred block financials to them. Cheers!

Transparency, accuracy, and efficiency through the entire process.

Block Financial Resources has provided excellent service and it has been a positive experience for us as first-time homebuyers. Sean was highly recommended by a close friend who has previously worked with him. The mortgage broker plays a significant role in the entire process as this is a lifetime financial commitment. Sean and Ava are meticulous and very diligent. They work with such precision and accuracy. We had a lot of questions and Sean was patient with us. He is also very transparent and truly cares for his clients on a personal level. You can always reach him when something comes up and he always responds at a timely manner. We were constantly updated with interest rates and disclosures were sent to us in advance for review. This was super helpful on closing day as we knew what to expect. It is important to share our positive experience especially for first-time homebuyers like us who need guidance in navigating the whole homebuying process.

Top notch communication

“Phenomenal” is how I would describe Ava Sanel. Ava helped me through a recent refinancing that was very challenging. I had previously been denied by other lenders, including my own bank and other financial institutions. There were a lot of promises that led to disappointment. Then came Ava Sanel. From beginning to end, Ava was transparent, knowledgeable and kind. She was a straight *******, who taught me so much about the refinancing process and helped me to address certain credit issues. Honestly, even without the approval of my loan, I would have been grateful to Ava for helping reclaim my financial autonomy. It was not easy confronting past mistakes, but with Ava I addressed them directly and came out with a loan approval. Most importantly, Ava never gave up on me. Obtaining this refinancing to pay my daughter’s graduate school tuition was something that I only accomplished with Ava’s hard work and perseverance.. I highly recommend her and her team.

The Absolute Best - Highly Recommend

Trusted Borrower, New York, NY - Wednesday, February 8, 2023

I recently closed on my apartment and I have to say Sean and Nicole were the main reason I got thru this whole home buying process as a first timer. I was buying at a rough time (interest rates were going up, it was really stressful) and the rates given to me by several of the major banks (including one I'm employed at) were higher than I was hoping for. Sean was able to get me an incredible rate, and when closing took a little longer than expected, he was then able to extend the rate to help me close. Nicole was so efficient and made all the document submissions so easy. And they're so responsive!! I had to call Sean during closing with a question and he was immediately available and such an amazing resource. Will definitely be using them again in the future if I end up refinancing or buying another place. Cannot recommend highly enough! The absolute best.

Amazing experience!

My husband and I purchased a second home in Florida. We contacted Block Financial Resources to discuss taking out a mortgage. We spoke to Sean Bloch who held my hand thru decision to finance. He was able to get us an amazing rate. One of his employees, Ava handled all the paperwork. They were extremely professional and very thoughtful to our needs. They made this process of our purchase an extremely good experience.

Trusted Borrower, New York City - Thursday, December 16, 2021

Sean and his team were fantastic to work with. They were fast, friendly, responsive, and made the entire refinance process incredibly easy. I was refinancing an HDFC co-op, and in my experience, many realtors and brokers don't understand how HDFCs work and get hung up on the intricacies, but Block knew exactly what they were doing. My refinance fees were rolled into my new mortgage, and any up front costs I paid for things like the appraisal were refunded to me during the closing process, so I ended up paying zero out of pocket for the mortgage refinance. I didn't even have to leave home for the closing: The closing attorney came out to my apartment. I highly recommend Block if you're looking to refinance your mortgage, especially if you live in an HDFC co-op in NYC!

Great communication and fast service!

BFR's service is just absolutely perfect. Buying an NYC co-op can be an awful, arduous, and totally confusing process.

Client Aug-Oct 2021, New York City - Wednesday, October 27, 2021

I absolutely recommend Block Financial Resources's Services to anyone. Over the years I've refinanced 4 times. Block was absolutely the best! They advised and helped me through a refinance of a "co-op", which is always a long and difficult process requiring extra steps. Many banks won't even handle co-ops and the rates are usually higher than condos or single family houses. Sean Bloch (owner) answered all my questions in a first conversation in the clearest manner possible. Ava Sanel called me to lock in an amazing rate while she was on vacation! She was 100% available at all times throughout the process. I have already recommended Block Financial Resources to my best friend and a close friend of my brothers. I think they were fantastic!

Ava was so easy to work with. She was fast to respond and explained everything very well. I'm referring everyone to her. I started this process contacting banks myself and got very frustrated. Ava made everything so much less stressful and at the end lower cost all in.

All the staff at Block Financial Resources, especially Ava Sanem and Sean Bloch were extremely professional and accessible. They kept us informed throughout the whole mortgage process and made purchasing our current home a pleasure. They always had our best interests in mind. We would recommend Block to anyone purchasing a home or commercial property.

Just did a residential purchase in Commack NY. I used Ava Sanel. I couldn't be happier with the rate, I couldn't be happier with the service. Ava never EVER made me feel like I had too many questions. She answered all of them in a timely and friendly manner. She knew hier stuff and walked me through the entire process. It was not a straightforward loan, but Ava made it seasy by making me understand what was going on at all times. I really appreciate all the time and effort. I would recommend her and BFR wholeheartedly.

This is my first online review. Ever. That doesn’t mean I’m difficult to please. It’s just that my experience with Block Financial Resources has been so exceptionally remarkable, that I hope my writing this review will help someone else in a similar situation. As a first-time buyer, I came in from the cold. I wasn’t even sure what a mortgage broker does. I met Sean after reading his raving reviews on Yelp. On meeting him, I was impressed by his extensive knowledge and straight talk. As in such endeavors, I had my fair share of impediments. The real estate market is fraught with pitfalls and uncertainty. If it were not for Sean and Ava, I would not have had the courage and the determination to forge ahead. At every step, Sean was steadfast in his support, and his invaluable advice proved to be a winning strategy. To cut a year-long story short, and at the happy conclusion of this endeavor, I can simply say this—if you have Sean and Ava in your corner, you can be assured you have the best! Thank you, Sean! You’re an exemplary person and a true professional!

I recently had a very good experience with BFR on my condo in New York. As an owner, I was happy during the whole process, people are very nice and thoughtful for clients and I was very pleased and trustful for them! Finally, I finished my closing successfully. Many thanks to BFR!!!

I just finished another refinancing with Sean Bloch and those that support his efforts, and this was the third time in the past 11 years I have worked with Sean for my home financing needs. I keep coming back because Sean provides a high level of knowledge, continued detailed-oriented staying on top of the many parts of the process, excellent execution and guidance along the way. All that makes the customer experience terrific. Just as important, Sean finds you the best options for your financing needs and the lowest interest rates by finding the right lender based on market conditions at the time. Overall, and on each step in the process, Sean and his team are pleasant to work with, get things done in a prompt and consistent fashion, and are highly competent in all facets.

My wife and I have now used Block Financial Resources twice. We used them to get our first mortgage and then again to refinance it recently. Sean Bloch and his team are fantastic to work with. They are incredibly efficient and organized making it an incredibly easy process for my wife and I both times. Sean was even the one that approached us about maybe it was a good time to refinance and then worked to lock us in at a low rate right before he knew they were going to go up. His team was great with communicating with us every step of the way and we constantly felt taken care of and that they were on top of everything. Could not be happier with the process and their work. They were a pleasure and we will be recommending them to any friends we have that might be looking for mortgages or financing in the future

My wife and I closed on a home last week and were very impressed with Sean Bloch and Block Financial Resources. Sean had the lowest rates available by far and super quick turnaround time, which allowed us to meet the ever evolving deadlines that existed with our foreclosure purchase. Sean and his team were super responsive, detailed, and walked us through every step while being very accessible for all of our novice first time home buyer questions. We highly recommend Sean for your mortgage needs!

One of my co-workers recommended Sean from Block Financial Resources, stating that he got the best rate possible with this broker. Having used their services, i am happy to extend my own recommendation to anyone looking for financing. Sean/Ava understood my situation perfectly, and knew exactly what I needed; Timely updates were provided to make sure that all the important details are not left without my attention. In the end, my closing was on time and i got an amazing rate that exceeded my initial expectations.

My husband and I were first time home owners and the process seemed so stressful and confusing in the beginning. Thankfully, we had an amazing experience with Block financial Resources. Ava Sanel was our broker, and she was with us every step of the way to help us through the experience of buying our first home. Questions were always answered in a timely manner and she was never too busy to explain every detail I needed to know (sometimes for the second or third time). Our broker helped to assist us in making the right choices for our future. I would highly recommend Block Financial Resources.

Refinancing can be very stressful, we were lucky enough have Block Financial Resources recommended to us. We were guided through every step of the process. Every time we had a question the staff was very helpful and got back to us very quickly. Even the turn around time was phenomenal. We had gone to other big name lenders and could barely even get someone on the phone. Sean and co. treated us like family. I would definitely recommend!!!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with the staff at Block Financial Resources. As newly weds we would be purchasing our first home and has no idea there were so many options. Sean sat down with us and went over our options and we chose one that suited us and our plans for the future. I would definitely recommend Block Financial Resources and of course Sean.
