Jim Barry, from Artisan Mortgage Company was wonderful. I happened to be passing the office in Islip one day and decided to stop by and ask a few questions. This was before looking for a new home. The 1990’s mortgage crisis had me skeptical. I did A LOT of research on mortgages. I checked out banks, private mortgages and a few Mortgage Brokers. After all the research - I circled back to Artisan Mortgage Company. I’m so glad I did.
I was involved in a short sale that was taking way too long. I needed to be in a specific school district when the school year started for my children. Right before the school year was to start I backed out of the short sale and found another house. I needed a mortgage immediately. Jim was a huge help. He helped expedite the entire process. I highly recommend Artisan Mortgage.
Jim Barry and Artisan Mortgage as a whole were absolutely tremendous throughout the entire home buying experience. From start to finish, Jim was a great communicator and was honest with every question asked of him no matter how big or small.
The personalized service that they provide is second to none especially compared to the big banks.
I have and will continue to recommend Jim and his company to everyone in need of a home buying and mortgage expert.

Dion Goolman was recommended to me during a deal after a debacle with an out-of-state lender. I had a nice family with a good job and income that could not get a loan through the other lenders because of a work history discrepancy.
Without the assistance of Dion my buyers would have had to wait another year and a half to be eligible for a loan through the other lenders we have used in the past, and the house they fell in love with would have been long gone.
I have since worked with Dion a few more times and he has been consistently enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
I look forward to doing business with Artisan Mortgage Company in the future.
Dion Goolman has worked with several of my clients. He educated them through the process and helped them work through credit issues that held them back from obtaining their mortgage.
In every case, my clients were motivated to follow Dion's instructions and they are homeowners!
I recommend Dion Goolman with confidence as a Real Estate Professional to educate and serve my clients.
From the very start Dion Goolman helped us in every way he could to obtain a mortgage.
From helping us with our credit score to giving us advice on saving money; he was an upfront, no nonsense person but handled it very respectfully.
He never made us feel bad for the position we were in, he was just willing and able to help.
We would like to thank Artisan Mortgage Company for making the loan process easy and smooth.
We worked along with Jim who walked us through the process. He was very thorough in explaining each step and if we had any questions, he got back to us quickly with an answer.
We truly can say that buying a home this time around was way less stressful, and we are happy that we made the decision to use this company.
We recommend Artisan to anyone seeking a mortgage to purchase their new home.
I love Jim Barry and Artisan Mortgage Company. Without Jim, I would not have been able to make my dream come true of buying my first house!

Albert Einstein once said: “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
From my initial phone call to Artisan Mortgage on through to my closing it was very clear that Artisan’s first priority is “to be of value”.
Their success is simply a reflection of putting the client’s needs front and center.
In particular, Jim Barry and Gil Citrin are the embodiment of “value”. I came with a few more problems than your average home buyer; they stuck with me through every issue and obstacle when lesser men would have given up.
It is a very rare thing indeed to find a company that is as professional and knowledgeable as Artisan is and yet leaves you with the feeling, when the entire process is done, that you just made new friends.
I would not hesitate to use Artisan Mortgage again or recommend them to anyone.
Working with Jim was the best experience for us.
He took the time to understand us and our finances; and work with us to get the best deal we could.
He spent extra time going over small confusing scenarios that developed during the process and went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable with everything – even some info from our lawyers that didn’t make sense!
We would absolutely recommend Jim and Artisan Home Mortgage to anyone and everyone!
We couldn’t be happier with our experience!
Working with Artisan Mortgage is a pleasure.

My family used Artisan Home Mortgage to purchase our home with a VA home loan. Jim Barry was knowledgeable on the process and what we should expect. The transaction was incredibly positive – and most importantly – transparent.
Jim explained every aspect of the loan and gave updates regularly.
We would highly recommend Artisan Home Mortgage and Jim Barry to any veteran considering buying a home.
This is our second time using Artisan within 6 months. Jim is a top professional in his field.
We have since recommended Jim to three friends for their mortgage.
Jim Barry was a pleasure to work with and made my first home buying experience an absolute positive one from beginning to end.
Working with Gil and Jim had to be the most pleasurable experience with the whole process of purchasing our home.
When the real estate agent and our attorney made our heads spin, they kindly explained everything to us and put us at ease.
They took us on when no one else would because of poor credit and they not only made all obstacles work, but they got to know us and treat us like a person and friend.
They are amazing and would highly recommend them. We are now happy home owners, thanks to them!
Gil and Jim are the best!
