Testimonials

With 25+ years in the industry, we've earned your trust

When we contacted you last year about a loan, we were in some pretty rough waters.  Our building needed an expensive roof and the problem was getting serious.  And we didn’t have the funds on hand.  

We contacted banks, denominational offices, and various other lending institutions with little success.  As you know, small churches such as ours don’t keep a lot of money on hand.  What comes in is put into ministry.  That’s a fact a lot of lending institutions couldn’t accept, in spite of the fact that we had loads of equity.

Your response was different.  Your offices have treated us with a respect and professionalism we didn’t find in some of the other places.  The loan you funded for us took care of the roof problem and some other things as well.

Borrowing money is a tough situation for a church, but BDM made it easy.

Pastor Jonathan Yandell

Free Will Baptist Church - Garden Grove, CA

We the members of Christ Temple Missionary Baptist Church praise the lord for touching you and your firm for providing the much-needed loan.

Because of that loan we were able to do some much needed remodeling.

  • We were blessed to reinforce the bathroom floors;
  • We have weatherized all the windows with energy efficient double panes and inside tenting;
  • We replaced the heating system with control air and heating;
  • Paid all delinqent bills;
  • Took a negative cash outflow to a positive inflow/outflow;
  • Pull the members together-knowing that god does answer prayers.

We thank you for being there for us in our time of need.

“It was truly a wonderful experience and process working with you and BDM Mortgage Services”

Thank you very much for the timely and professional manner in which BDM Mortgage Services, Inc. arranged the loan funded recently for our church.  I really appreciate that from the very beginning of the process everything that you promised was delivered.  The checklist that you provided was golden.  I was pleased to know that I was dealing with a company that knew exactly what was needed upfront to close our loan in a short period of time.  I would highly recommend BDM Services, Inc. to any church looking for financing.  BDM Services, Inc. performs professionally, treat people with respect and this made our loan process a pleasant experience.

Rev. James E. Lawson, Jrm MIC

Saint's Rest Missionary Baptist Church - Oakland, CA

We are very pleased and satisfied in our selection of BDM Mortgage Services to consolidate our existing loans and give us a lump sum to complete much needed repairs.  Wagoner Memorial was able to get the church’s entire roof replaced and make major renovations to the kitchen.  And now we have a lower interest rate resulting in a lower monthly mortgage payment which has blessed the finances tremendously.  The entire process to secure the consolidation was seamless and you provided support and guidance until completion.

Wagoner Memorial is impressed with the quality of service provided, professionalism and integrity demonstrated by you and BDM.

As a former international banker I was truly impressed with the manner in which you handled the loan transaction in a most cost effective, expedient, efficient, courteous and extremely professional manner.

Your quick and efficient services made the loan process go smoothly, and without the frustrations that usually accompany procuring a loan.  It seemed that we had barely applied for the loan, and we were receiving the check from the title company.

Thank you so much for making this a pleasant experience.

Rev Irvin E. Jones, Pastor

Blythe Pentecostal Church - Blythe, CA

In March 2014 the Royal Family Church of God in Christ entrusted BDM Mortgage Services, Inc. to conduct a loan for repairs and updates to our Church after receiving an informational flyer.  We just wanted to say thank you and couldn’t have been more pleased with the ease of the transaction throughout the entire duration of the loan process and appreciated the knowledge of the BDM Mortgage Services, Inc. staff.

Pastor Tharon Franklin

Royal Family Church of God in Christ - Salinas, CA

I most highly recommend the services of BDM Mortgage Services, Inc.  Our small but rapidly growing church was in need of property improvements, but lacked the necessary funds.  Much to our dismay, several banks and credit unions were unwilling to arrange a loan.  We found that, as a church, we were subject to much greater scrutiny, and not being formally designated a 501(C)3 entity, we were finding it impossible to get funding.  

Praise God we met Mr. Dan Aranda and his staff at BDM Mortgage.  He arranged a loan at a very reasonable rate and worked with us every step of the way.  The paperwork was minimal; he helped us at each stage of the process and kept us informed at all times.  Without Dan and BDM Mortgage we would not have been able to make the improvements we desired.

I found Dan and his staff to be very professional and I am grateful that he understood our particular situation as a church.  I am completely satisfied with the performance and results of BDM and most highly recommend them.  Without a doubt, as the Lord blesses and we continue to grow, BDM Mortgage will service all our future loans at Crosspointe Baptist Church

Pastor Todd A. Shields

Crosspointe Baptist Church- Poway, CA

Your flyer in the mail was a ray of hope, that very same day we were just refused a loan.  I called your company on Monday and talked to Dan and this was the beginning of our relationship.  Everything that was stated to me that could be done was done.  Now we are free from our balloon payment and we have a date for our final payment.

You are truly a company of your word.  This was the easiest and fastest loan that I have ever been involved with.  

Pastor Gary Barnhart

Church of God - Taft, CA

Please accept my sincere thanks for your recent help in arranging a loan with BDM Mortgage Services, for one of our church properties.  My heart was warmed by the fact that when I told you what needed to be done, with great confidence you assisted us in the refinancing of our property located next door.

Your knowledge and professionalism in the handling of this matter were much appreciated, as well as your willingness to go the extra mile.  We look forward to working with you in the future.

Dr. Major D. Lovett, Pastor

True Zion Missionary Baptist Church - Los Angeles, CA

Without hesitation, we can say that we were thoroughly pleased with the manner in which your agent Dan Aranda represented your company, his attention to detail, his updating of loan status and his promptness in delivery of the funds.

Often when dealing with companies, a person may seem like “just a number” and his application is viewed as “just one in the pile”.  However, Dan made us feel that our business was important to him and that we were his prime consideration.

Minister Ellis Lewis, Sr.

Church of Christ- La Puente, CA

We had tried other lenders including those who are supposed to be for church loans; They required lots of paper work and our individual and church information.  They also required a two to three month waiting period; But we thank God for you, we had the money in our hands within three weeks or less; I will highly recommend you to any one that is seeking a loan for their church.
