Before working with Scott, I was looking at a possible 2 family home in Cypress ...

Scott is definitely and expert and one of the best when it comes to getting a deal done but it is sooooo much more than that. Before working with Scott, I was looking at a possible 2 family home in Cypress Hill. After working with Scott, I purchased a 3 family home in the hottest area in BedStuy. Scott helped me to put a plan in place that took over 3 months to execute. He told me the things I had check on my credit and the monies I had to have to make my dream come true. You always hear those silly infomercials talking about buying investment property with little or no money down. Well, I did it and it wouldn’t have been possible without Scott Mantel. I knew I was in the right hands not only because of how he explained everything, but other people knew him as well. Sometimes property owners will try and tell you what lender they’d like you to go with to ensure the deal goes through…Once I dropped Scott’s name, they just exhaled and had no problems moving forward because they knew I was in good hands. Everyone has a “guy” but Scott is “The guy”. If you want to get your deal to go through, use Scott. Period.

Scott is extremely smart, a straight shooter, resourceful and has extensive knowledge of the industry. We closed a loan with him that was extremely complicated and previous mortgage brokers had not been able to handle. Cannot say enough good things about him.

Highly recommended lender

It was my first time buying a house and Scott was by far the team leader of the very confusing presses of purchasing my property.

You can always rely on Scott to be available 24 seven and always quick to respond.

Be sure to expect the perfect execution of any deal with Scott on your side.

Thanks Scott! Talk soon with a new purchase

Great experience!

Scott was so on top of my loan and made sure everything went smooth and was a pleasure to work with.

I would only use Scott going forward. Thanks Scott!


Borrower from New York, NY
Amazing experience with my loan process.

I must say that my recent mortgage refinance was a smooth, seamless experience. Mr Mantel is extremely knowledgeable and was able to guide us through the loan process with ease. He was always available to answer any questions that we had. We are extremely happy with the loan that Me Mantel was able to get for us. We were able to get a great interest rate and the loan closed in a timely manner. I would recommend Mr Mantel and Nationwide Equities Corp to anyone in the market for a loan. This refinance experience with Scott Mantel and Nationwide Equities Corp was a 10 out of 10.


Borrower from Brooklyn, NY
Great to work with - organized, transparent, efficient

Scott was amazing to work with when refinancing our mortgage. He knew how to communicate with us throughout the process and made sure we knew what was going on every step of the way. His responsiveness and expertise is extremely impressive as well. Please consider Scott for your mortgage, refinance, or other home loan needs.

Scott “the mortgage guy” Mantel!

This gentleman right here is worth his weight in Gold! This was my first mortgage and I don’t think there’s a better educator out there. He walked me through the whole process. Worked super late hours and got me my loan quick. And easy. He’s super efficient and knows what he’s doing. I was referred to him and let me tell you. I’m excited to buy another house just so I can experience this easy process again! Thanks again Scotty boy


Borrower from Lindenhurst, NY
Wonderful experience

Scott was very responsive and throughly explained each step the process. I can high reccomend him and will to friends and family.

Thank you Scott.


Borrower from New York, NY
Outstanding professional, Customer always first, A++

We closed 2 mortgages with Scott, and both times he guided us with clarity through our complicated situations. He’s always been extremely patient, knowledgeable, and responsive. Most importantly, he structured the loan that was best optimized to our unique situation, never pushing or rushing the process, despite changes in our income.


Borrower from New York, NY
Highly Recommend

From the very beginning to closing, Scott was very responsive and patient all the way. Always worked, sometimes on the weekends, sometimes in the middle of the night! Not only did he give us the best rate, he was also able to close on time as promised. It was not an easy process getting a multi-family loan but he worked hard and delivered!! Thumbs up here, would recommend to anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home.

An advocate who puts client wellbeing ahead of personal profit

This is the third mortgage that Scott has managed for me (one original and two refi’s.) Scott’s is consistently thoughtful, explains everything clearly, exercises good judgement and provides everything that I need so that I can make a fully informed decision.


Borrower from New York, NY
The person who I really wanna appreciate to “Scott”

We met Scott at the suggestion of a realtor we had been working with before we bought our new home. Hesitant at first, our skepticism quickly disappeared! Scott was thorough at the very beginning with our application. Some of the income was very complicated and he spent endless hours to make sure he had a full grasp on making sure we would qualify for the loan. From the very start, right up until closing, what Scott told us he would deliver came true….in fact, better than we actually had expected! I cannot say enough good things about Scott he is a true champion for the buyer and a remarkable, one of a kind loan officer. I HIGHLY recommend talking to Scott before you proceed with anyone else!

Great broker. Got us the best rate.

We were recommended to Scott by our real estate agent. We had already gotten a quote from Rocket Mortgage, but Scott was able to find us a bank who offered us a better rate. He walked us through the whole process like a Pro


Borrower from New York, NY
One Of The Best

Mr. Scott Mantel made my first time buying experience very comfortable. He did my loan very professionally and efficiently. He is very good at what he does. He responds to emails, texts, etc. very fast as well. Always made sure everything was going smooth. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home loan!


Borrower from Staten Island, NY

We have used Scott for multiple mortgage loans, and every time he has done an amazing job. He walks us through great detail with every option, and answers all of our questions. He is also able to really figure out difficult situations, and always gets us a great outcome. I would highly recommend him!!

We love Scott

Scott helped us with our first house 8 years ago, he helped us with our refi and then he helped us on our second house. Quite literally, you couldn’t ask for a better bank. Everything was always explained in detail, and he helped move the process along as quickly as possible. Communication was always clear and efficient. We intend to use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone.


Borrower from Fleischmanns, NY
Excellent in every regard

Scott was honest, diligent, and very helpful. His advice was spot on and was always on top of his game. He found the optimal solution for our needs, which came in as much less costly than all the other alternatives we considered. Lastly, he stuck with us thru an 8 month period where we were in contract but waiting for repairs to be made by the seller before closing. If I ever buy another house again there’s only one person I’m calling: Scott.


Borrower from New York, NY

Most experienced broker

Whatever I say is not enough. Scott is the king of brokers and I fully trust his advise. Beside that he truly cares about his clients and their goals. He helped me to purchase my first house which was a super complicated deal and he advised me through all the steps and obstacles to get the mortgage through. Recently I refinanced my mortgage to get out of the FHA and take out cash and have a 30 year fixed low interest conventional mortgage. Initially, I did some mortgage shopping and he was the best amongst all. The process was super clear, smooth, and informative similar to my first experience with him. Again we had some hurdles on our way because of my financial situation, but he managed to sort things out and got me the best deal possible. I have recommended him to a few friends whom had a similar experience as me. I highly recommend him!!!

Scott made it all possible.

I’d been talking on and off with Scott for close to a year, while my wife and I honed in on exactly what we were looking for in NYC (which is an incredibly fast moving and competitive market). My wife and I are self employed, which is a special brand of headache

for lenders and homebuyers alike. Scott was a referral from a close friend who is also self employed, and had purchased a few properties with Scott’s help.

Scott was always easy to get a hold of to answer any questions, of which there were SO many throughout the year or so we’d been in contact. NYC is an insane market, and without someone there to answer questions it kind of seems impossible. When we finally found the house we wanted and got an accepted offer on, Scott and his team moved quickly to get everything together necessary for closing. He and the folks at Nationwide Equities walked us through the whole process, which for a first time home buyer in NYC is seriously daunting. I feel bad in hindsight for all of the texts and emails I sent at ungodly hours, but they were always returned so promptly I just figured he cared as much as I did. Which, again looking back on it seems silly. But that’s the sign of someone who does their job right!

Also, Scott kept a watchful eye on interest rates as they were changing day by day, and locked a rate WAY lower than I had expected. We also didn’t have to pay points on the rate, which is amazing.

At the end of the day, honestly I don’t think this process would have worked for us with another lender. Given the headache of self employment and all of the extra work required, a lot of lenders just give a “no” before they really look into working with certain types of buyers. Scott worked his ass off for us, and my wife and I got a house we absolutely love, with a mortgage rate that far exceeded expectations. We are forever grateful!

Of the numerous people involved on both sides of our Brooklyn real estate transaction, Scott was the only one who seemed to have our best interest at heart. He was skillful in putting together our complicated mortgage, calm during the tumultuous months as the deal teetered off of several legal cliffs and in the end he was able to make moves that salvaged our approval timelines. He is trustworthy and knows the real estate market better than anyone. His number is the first I will call whenever a decision is to be made with regards to my home.


Borrower from New York, NY

Scott is heaven sent. He was patient and understanding, holding my hand step by step through the process of buying our very first house. He answered every question and concern and simplified the entire process. My family and I are so grateful, thanks to Scott we are living in our dream home.


Borrower from New York, NY
Definitely Recommend Scott!!

Scott made the process of obtaining our mortgage seem like a breeze (even when it wasn’t!) He was super responsive- answering any and all questions, following up constantly and made sure we got an amazing rate and closed ahead of schedule!

Without a doubt, I’d recommend Scott and will be contacting him if and when I need another mortgage.

Scott was personable, down to earth, extremely knowledgeable and supportive every step of the way. He knew the difficulties with covid, the lenders, and my paricular circumstances. I dont think I would have gotten through the various difficulties without him and he never gave up.

Best Mortgage Broker in New York!

I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Scott Mantel! He is incredibly knowledgable on the lending process and was able to walk me through all of my mortgage options before moving forward so that I could make informed decisions. In the end, we decided to move forward with a refinance product that saved me more than $1000/per month and hundreds of thousands of dollars in interest over the term of the mortgage. Furthermore, despite everything I was hearing from other lenders, Scott was able to refinance my mortgage quickly and expertly despite the challenges of conducting business in the middle of a global pandemic! Thank you for everything Mr Mantel! Looking forward to doing business with you again!
