"The Trade-In Mortgage was an absolute game-changer for our family during our recent move. As someone who had previously experienced the stress of a gap between homes, I can't express enough how much peace of mind the program provided us. Also, nothing went wrong! Everybody stayed in contact. If I sent an email, I got a response right away. Usually something always goes wrong, but this was too easy."
"My colleagues should talk to Calque before speaking to any other company because of the ease with which your company handled my client's transaction, making the entire process stress-free and simple for all parties involved. With The Trade-In Mortgage™, I was able to submit an offer for my clients for a house they really liked without contingencies on the contract. For my clients, it removed the frustration and guesswork on whether the seller would accept their offer due to contingencies as well as contracts falling through due to the fact that they hadn't sold their home."

"I am sold on The Trade In Mortgage! The program is a great way to get buyers into the market; it gives them a safety net. It is also a great tool to offer your REALTOR partners; their buyers are more competitive and have more leverage against other buyers. It also shines a light on you, the loan officer. You have a competitive edge that will open doors to attracting new REALTOR business. Also, the Calque team is fabulous to work with! Everyone is knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. I am very pleased to be partnering with Calque."
"We were extremely pleased with the Trade-In Mortgage. It offered us a great sense of security in the selling process and helped us get a lower price while buying."
“Folks can really take advantage of this service. Let’s say you’re starting a new job. Very rarely do they say, ‘You can start in six months’. They put you up in a hotel, and that's fine, but how nice would it be to be able to buy something and move in right away? I think the potential for The Trade-In Mortgage is big. It’s getting the word out that this exists and the trade-off of the fee, which is nominal when you think about the benefit it provides.”

"After learning about the Calque product, I reached out to past clients that I knew had equity in their home and wanted to buy a new home. I explained Calque, and they went shopping. I currently have one Calque deal in underwriting and a few that should come in shortly.
Calque’s purchase guarantee gave a solution to a problem past clients had. It enabled them to move forward with buying a new home and creating inventory by listing their current home."
"I had a client that needed to move quickly from Colorado to Virginia due to an urgent family issue. I presented the Calque Purchase program along with the bridge loan as a solution to their problem. They wanted to move fast and had anxiety around carrying two mortgages, even
though they could afford it. Calque gave them the assurance they needed that their home would sell. The bridge loan increased their purchasing power by allowing a larger down payment. Calque offered a solution to a very stressful situation for my clients."
"I was referred two Calque deals from Calque. The realtors were excited to find a potential workaround for the borrowers so that if they found a house they loved, they could use Calque to get a non-contingent offer and a bridge loan to get the buyer in a new home before they sell the other. We worked up the numbers for the bridge, got everything in place but once Calque made the offers on these two homes, the borrowers got full price offers on their home and after working so hard on their loans, both buyers stayed with me. So even though Calque was not needed, I am closing two more loans because of this program. The realtors getting excited about the program I think really gave me an edge as I was able to help in a way that the lender who already preapproved them could."
