Residential Mortgage Loans

SBEL has the resources and relationships to get your mortgage loan done when others can’t. We will work with you to identify the best alternative for your unique situation. This includes hard to prove income, high loan to value, too much existing debt, less-than-perfect credit, and bankruptcy or foreclosure. We are also your jumbo loan experts.

Refinancing & Debt Management

Refinancing and consolidating your debt with a South Bay Equity Lending loan can lower the total amount you pay out each month. You can even arrange to have extra cash. We’ll help you consolidate your high-interest debt, get extra cash for the things you’ve always wanted to do. You’ll get your money fast. We close loans in as little as 25 days.

Reverse Mortgage Loans

Are you a senior over 62 years of age? You may be eligible to convert part of your home equity into cash from loan proceeds. You can do this without having to sell your home or give up the title as long as property taxes and homeowner’s insurance are kept up to date. Instead of making monthly principal and interest payments to a lender, a reverse mortgage loan allows you to receive payments from the lender.

Client Testimonials

Hear what our happy clients are saying...
  • “What a great job. We are writing to thank you for all your help and to specially acknowledge a job well done. I have been in the lending business for thirty years and have seen the good and the bad. You guys are the best. We pre-screened our loan with you through Chris Turkmany, who was great. Once we found our home, we submitted the application to you. We were not sure what to expect in this day of post 2008 financial collapse. As with all deals, we had a story. You guys did a great job in sharing that story and getting us what we still believe was the best deal possible. We hit a small bump at the beginning, but you guys rallied and showed us what a well managed and professional operation can do for their client. There was some hand holding and walking us through the details. All communication was done quickly and expeditiously. When rates moved, you locked us in and closed the transaction exactly as you had promised. I know how rare this is in this day and age, so this was greatly appreciated. Matt, you have a great staff and they did everything we could have asked for, to get us into our new home. THANKS.”


  • “I have worked with Josh thru 3 refinances of my mortgage. He is so understanding, patient and explains everything to you as the process goes along. Always willing to answer ALL you may have. No question is stupid. I highly recommend Josh for all your mortgage needs.”


  • “They took us under their wings and walked us through the process with professionalism and yet catered to us on a very personal and private level.  They worked diligently and coordinated meetings around our schedules and in our home.”

  • “We would like to thank you for making our whole refinance experience effortless. Personally I used to cringe at the word “refi”, but now after my second refinance with you, I don’t feel that tense feeling anymore when considering refinancing my loans. You and your staff were on the ball the whole way through the process and responded to our needs and questions quickly and efficiently. We especially appreciate the personalized service of coming to our house to sign the final documents. That is great customer service. We have recommended you several times to friends and family and each person that used your company has had great responses after doing business with you. We will continue to recommend your mortgage loan services. Thank you again for taking great care of us during the refinance of our home loan. We look forward to working with you and your staff again.”

  • “It was very easy to work with John and SBEL. We have refinanced a couple of times in the past, and this was the easiest, quickest and least painful refi transaction we have experienced by far. John was very accommodating and flexible to meet our requests. The whole process was done fast and easily, in a friendly and easy-going environment. I would recommend anyone with a need for real estate financing to work with SBEL. The whole staff at SBEL are amazing!”
