I can’t say enough good about the service Christian and his company provided in brokering the mortgage for my wife’s and my first home. Because this was our first home purchase we new we it was especially important to find someone who would not only close the deal, but who would be transparent, informative/educational, attentive to our needs, and show integrity every step of the way. Christina did all this and more. He was straight forward about rates and market trends from day one, and was always available to address any questions/concerns I had. This included talking to me on the phone for 45-60 minutes the day was locked our rate to ensure that I fully understood and was comfortable with the the actual rate and the timing of the decision. Additionally, his processor Patty, made the entire process a breeze. She is extremely efficient, knowledgeable, communicative, and organized. She always made sure to provide the exact amount of information needed to move the deal forward; making sure that we were well aware of what we still needed to provide, yet never over-burdening us with details from the underwriters that she was able to handle on her own. She made the whole process pretty much “point-and-shoot” from our end. I truly can’t say enough about how pleased we were with our experience with Magnum Opus. Every aspect of closing our deal was handled with the utmost knowledge, care, efficiency, and integrity. I have already and will continue to recommend Christian to my friends and family. Rest assured, when/if we need such services again, I will look no further than Christian Best, and Magnum Opus. Thank you for helping us buy our first home Christian!!!
Christian Best provided excellent services for refinancing two of my investment properties. All the staff at Magnum Opus Federal are very professional and provide prompt responses through out the refinance/purchase process. Due to the timely and quick services, they were able to close my loan in a matter of weeks and save me a lot of money with the Hard Money lender. I recommend Christian Best and Magnum Opus Federal Corporation to anyone looking to refinance/purchase/consolidate debt/repair credit etc.
Christian was a pleasure to work with! The entire selling and buying process went smoothly and both he and Patty were both a huge help in keeping us up-to-date on information and making sure we were all set to go to buy our new home. He and his staff are prompt, professional and willing to go the extra mile to help their clients. Our realtor was hesitant at first to work with someone he did not know; however, at closing our realtor told us he couldn’t have been more impressed by Christian. We are extremely happy with the services he offered us and would highly recommend him and his staff!!
Christian and I met when he helped me with my own personal refinance. His professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile stood out from the very beginning. I am very slow to refer my clients to anyone, because it is a reflection on my own business. However, after my personal experience with Christian, I don’t hesitate to send clients his way. I have seen his efforts completely change the financial future of others. He doesn’t do what’s easy, but instead what’s in the best interest of the client. There is no question why he is recgonized as one of the best in the industry.
Five stars is not enough. I am a Delaware real estate agent, and have been working with Christian and Magnum Opus for about six months. I have been extremely impressed. There is a real focus placed on the client, and very open line of communication between Christian and his staff, client, and Realtor, which is extremely important in the home buying experience. Many, many companies fall short on those criteria. Christian has also surrounded himself with a professional, and dedicated staff that are responsive, and knowledgeable. Keep up the good work!!
Christian helped me line up the mortgage for my first home. He was very attuned to my situation (young woman buying a home solo), and went out of his way to calculate different estimates, explain options, and follow up. I had a loan commitment well ahead of schedule and always felt a few steps ahead of the game. He and his underwriters are hard-working, quick to respond, and extremely supportive. Without hesitation, I would recommend Christian to friends and family.
When it came time to refinance my mortgage, Christian contacted me. I had been dealing with another company. He asked if he could look at the proposal they had given me. Once he had reviewed it, he was very honest with me and pointed out several errors and omissions the other company had made and explained each one. He worked with me every step of the way to achieve the proper refinance agreement. When I have to refinance again, I plan on using him again because of his honesty and integrity.

Wow – what a seamless transaction. I’m a real estate agent and handle 30-40 transactions a year. Christian treated my client with courtesy and respect, had documents to me on time or earlier, and settlement was so smooth it was more like a cocktail party than a real estate closing! I would recommend Christian without hesitation
