I am the type of person that is suspicious of anyone who lends money or sells products. Car salesmen, store sales clerks, and mortgage lenders are all people with whom I have had bad experiences in the past. But, when I met Tai Star, I immediately noticed that he was different. He is genuinely warm and kind. He does not try and push his clients into sub-prime mortgages just to get a sale. He is very knowledgeable about all of the lending products and the process that you will be going through. He explains everything step by step and educates his clients so they can be as informed as possible before making a decision. And lastly, he is exceedingly honest. That is the part that surprised me the most. Tai doesn't try and hide anything from his clients. He is up front about costs, fees, and outcomes when choosing a loan for your mortgage. And if an option will cost you too much in the long run, he will tell you honestly, "This option looks good on the surface, but the fees are where it's going to cost you." (his words to me about a couple of mortgage options that I considered) I have never met a lender like Tai before. I wish every lender had the integrity and honesty that he has. That said; I highly recommend Tai to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. He has your best interest at heart.

Tai helped me to refinance my house a few years ago and he made the whole process easy and got me a great rate. I have known Tai for over 20 years and he has the highest ethics and is incredibly helpful. I recently recommended Tai to help my sister buy her first home. Tai helped her every step of the way and I don't think she would have been able to get her first home without his guidance. If you need a home loan Tai is first class!

Tai Star is an amazing man who puts your best interest first. He is upfront and honest with every detail and explanation. He makes it personal but also professional. He gave me honest, straight forward advise to direct me to the path that lead to my success. He has helped me go from a credit score in the 500s now over 750. He is not just a man helping me get a mortgage, he has treated me as a personal friend who is always looking out for me and explaining numbers, endlessly, until I understand. I am able to virtually watch his computer screen to show me the break down and every penny that will be accounted for when buying my house. He's taken many hours virtually showing and explaining all the different loan options and what loan would be the best and benefit MY situation. If you're struggling and feel like you will never be able to own your own home, Tai is your man! Tai is the person you want helping you, advising you, and on your side. I wouldn't be in this position without him. Thank you Tai for all the hours you've spent helping explain things in detail, making sure I understood without a doubt , always making me feel important and that I was your only priority, and giving me all the personal advice throughout the years. I would never put such a big purchase and life-changing event and anybody else's hands but Tai. He's my shining STAR.... Pun intended 😊

Tai was a joy to work with. We chose him initially because of his video meetings and his explanations for each and every step. Highly Recommend him!

Tai did a great job following up with me. Love the video emails and the consistent communication. He was available when I had questions and very responsive to my inquiry. Movement Mortgage has an easy online application system and I will use Tai in the future!

Tai Starr. I don't recall how or why we were referred to him, but we're so glad we were! When I first started the process to get pre-qualified, we spoke with Tai and unfortunately my credit score wasn't quite there. Tai told us what to do to get the score where we needed to be, and... bam it worked! We ended up doing a For Sale by owner, so we didn't have a real estate agent to help us along with the process. Tai was SO helpful by answering tons of questions along the way with our home buying experience! So thankful for his dedication and assistance through the crazy and stressful times of buying our first home. By the way it was a VA loan, and a veteran helping a veteran made it even more special. Thanks for all your hard work Tai, and thanks for making a dream of home ownership reality! Easy, easy to work with Tai. 100%.
