“Theo Espinosa was very helpful in answering all of my questions and assisting with the refinancing process. It was great working with him, and he made it a very positive experience.”
– Karol Kafka

“In the past six years we have done two home mortgages, three refinancings and obtained a home equity line through Mortgage Magic. We were initially attracted by Mortgage Magic’s low rates and wide range of loan products, but ultimately it was the high quality of their people and service that won our repeat business. We recommend Mortgage Magic to our friends and business associates without reservation.”
– Alex & Pamela Tsigdinos

“I’ve known Doug since 2007 and have always found him to be incredibly bright, quick thinking and creative. He’s so creative in fact that his talents extend well beyond his primary occupation as a Real Estate professional. He’s a talented writer, blogger, and magician. He donates countless hours to entertaining adults and children with magic and even donates his time an energy to such worthy organizations as The Salvation Army. Yet he is also able to keep his business and family in a fine tuned working order. I can’t say I know anyone quite like Doug Jones; he’s an exceptional individual.”
– Jill Varvel

In May 2008 I contacted Doug Jones to refinance at 17 unit apartment building in West San Jose, California.
Doug was very competitive and he helped me get a very attactive, low interest, 10 year fixed refinance loan.
He was very knowledgeable and professional. It was a pleasure working with Doug Jones and Mortage Magic. I recommend them highly.

Doug Jones and his company Mortgage Magic have been our mortgage broker of choice for the last 22 years and has secured over 6 mortgage loans for my wife and I. I trust Doug completely. I know that he is fair, that he is looking out for our best interest and that he and his team of long term loan experts will find the absolute best loan for us. What more could you ask?
– Edwin Bruce

I first met Doug in 1977 during my divorce settlement, when I was buying out my ex husbands equity in our home. As a single mother, I was anxious about this purchase, was overwhelmed and did not know a thing about loans, mortgages or where to start with this process. Doug made me feel confident as he helped me with the purchase.
A few years later I got married and had to sell the house. WOW!!!! Doug’s Team did a fantastic job. I got top dollar in a very short time. This was because of the way he works with his team of specialists that focused on marketing, open houses, video advertising, web advertising, ect. His staff were very efficient and professional.
Doug arranged for us to get the best jumbo loan possible and buy the house I now live in which has also been refinanced.
Doug is extremely knowledgable and is able to provide you with information in a way that allows you to understand and learn. He is able to assist you in obtaining the best rates possible as he supports you through the process. As interest rates changed over the years has helped me refinance and save money. When refinancing was not the best alternative for me he was honest and advised me not to do it at that time.
Doug is not only a true professional and expert in his field but also a honest and honorable man that truely cares for his customers.
He listens to what you need and makes sure that you are treated with respect.
I would recommend Doug’s services to anyone looking for help with real estate or obtaining a loan. I have referred him to many of my friends.
– Nadene Wilkins

I’ve known Doug Jones for over 10 years. He is genuine, knows the mortgage industry and has always been a straight shooter with me. He has talked me out of loans that didn’t make sense and has found situations for me and my wife that were a better fit.
Doug Jones is a trusted associate in the mortgage business who also knows a thing or two about magic.
– Chris Braun
Owner Chris Braun Creative

I have worked with Doug for over 10 years, and continue to return to him. Doug has helped us refinance several times through out the years and most recently he helped our son purchase a home.
Throughout the years I have called on Doug for questions, that he always answered or followed up on, even though the help he was giving me did not turn out to be business for him, it never mattered to Doug he always helped me no matter what.
I also found out that Doug did magic, I called Doug and asked him if he would be interested in performing at my daughter’s kindergarten class for her birthday, he gladly agreed. Of course he was a hit and the children and parents loved his performance.
Doug is the epitome of professionalism, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Doug Jones got my wife Stacy and i our first loan. This was at a time when getting any loan was difficult. Doug has continiued to get us home loans but in addition, Doug and his wife have become close friends.
My strong recommendation is to see Doug if you need a home loan or even changes to an existing loan. He can help, sometimes even when others cannot.
– Dennis Christensen
Customer & Friend

It was an absolute pleasure to work with MagicMortgage toward obtaining our new home. Over the past years I have purchased a number of homes and my experience with Doug Jones, especially, was by far the most fluid purchase of all. Doug simply has that unique balance of experience, honesty, knowledge and tenacity that makes his customer feel comfortable during what can be a nail biting experience. I also want to compliment his professional and patient office staff. They were always accessible, had the ability to quickly answer all my questions and assist me in obtaining all the necessary information. Lets face it, purchasing a home can at times be a grueling experience but MagicMotgage certainly made the road to finance completion a smooth journey…….Thanks!!
– Dr. Robert Perez

Doug has helped me refinance my home twice. He worked very hard to get me the best rate possible. Doug also made the refinancing process simple and easy to understand. I recommend Doug to all my friends and family. Thanks Doug!
– Rich Hawthorne

I really appreciate the expertise of Doug Jones. This is critical on the financing for a real estate Purchase transaction.
I have sent Doug some difficult loans. If they can be done, Doug gets them done. If they cannot be done, Doug Lets me know up front, so that we do not waste time pursuing something that cannot be done.
I also appreciate the fact that Doug gets things done early, and especially important, Doug makes certain that all of the other people involved in the financing process, get their tasks done early.
On a purchase transaction, time is critical. When I am representing the buyer, the listing agent expects the financing contingencies to be released on time, and expects us to close on time. Doug has never missed a time deadline with any of my clients. When Doug Jones is doing the financing, we have always been able to release our financing contingencies on time and close on time.
I know that if I have Doug Jones doing the financing that I will be able to have the buyer’s financing contingencies released on time and that we will close on time.

I re-financed my mortgage with Doug and his team in November 2012. The job was not magic, but was done extremely professional. The whole process was handled in very informative, responsive and efficient way. All in all the support Doug and his team have provided was outstanding and in case I’d re-finance a mortgage again, I’d go back to Mortgage Magic.
– Alois Schmid
