Take a look at what our clients say!

I have had the pleasure to work with George Duarte on numerous transactions, somewhere in the twenty transaction range, and I have always found George dedicated to his craft, clientele, and a skilled professionalism. George has proved this to me time and time again!
George is experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated to finding the best financial package for my clients and me! Thanks George for all your help over the years!

Rick R.

I would highly recommend George if you are thinking about a new loan. He is direct, sincere and knowledgeable. I have referred many people to him and he has come up with many solutions. I recently used his services and found that he is a good as advertised.

Brandon S.

I just completed my refinance with George Duarte. His professionalism was outstanding. He is knowledgeable and his experience was amazing. George worked with me through a very challenging refi and never gave up. He was patient and answered all my questions in terms easy for me to understand. His generosity of time and keeping costs down were unpresidented. I can give my highest recommendation for George and Horizon Financial.

Carrie W.

I have negotiated two re-fi's with George in the past few years and I would easily call him again. His professionalism, warm manner, and patience with my lack of knowledge in some areas of the re-fi were greatly appreciated. In addition, George kept my costs as low as possible and the rate he secured for me was amazing. In addition, the title company we worked was also easy to work with and very accommodating. All around a great experience.

L. P.

I have had Horizon do a few loans for me, George is Great! He finds out what your needs are. Explains the different loans available, what documentation will be needed and how long the process should take. And it pretty much goes the way he explains it, no oh by the ways. It is refreshing to still find a person out there who knows his business.
