Rick and his team at Mortgage Network could not have been more accommodating and helpful during my new home purchase. We were under a very tight timeline to close on our house, and Rick and the team were able to get it done. We could not have done it without them!

Corinne and Rick were great to deal with! I would recommend them to anyone!
— Andrea M.
Having been in Rick's shoes for a period in my career, I was unsure that he could deliver on what he promised. From day one, he knew exactly which program would best fit this short sale house we were looking to buy, and throughout this 8 month process, he was always available at any point in the day to offer up his expertise on the next step or alternatives to keep us moving forward. When things were out of his hands, he would be upfront and honest, and do his best to get us answers in a timely manner, given this unusual short sale buying experience. Most importantly we got the house we wanted, at a very good rate, with less money down than I was expecting.
— Brian D.
This is my first time buying a house. You all made this the easiest process as I imagine it could be. You are all very professional and very understanding through email and over the phone. I really look forward to using your services in the future.
— Brian H.
Great to do business with! Very fast and stress free.

Rick and I have served together on the Mass Mortgage Association's Education Committee for the past few years. His singular dedication to the cause and his ongoing involvement in all things regulatory are a major benefit to the MMA and its members, many of whom have no idea what goes on behind the scenes. I regularly see Rick attending industry functions as an emissary for MMA, tending the booth and sitting in on lectures and round-tables regarding the present and future of the mortgage business. It is the on-going service of those like Rick that helps preserve and protect the mortgage broker industry.
— Chris C.
Rick provided financial guidance and options that met our needs when my wife and I were in the market for our first home. He continues to work closely with us to make sure we understand our equity position and options for refinance. Throughout the loan qualifying and buying of our home, Rick was honest and respectful of the things important to our family. Rick made, what for most people is a stressful process, easy and fun! We were able to focus on the excitement of our new home, and not the financial worries. I highly recommend Rick to anyone interested in buying or refinancing real estate.
— Chris H.
Rick is not only easy to get along with but he is a consummate professional. He knows his programs and is right on with numbers and on time with deliverables. It is rare to see the dedication he has to his business. As someone who has been a member of the mortgage biz, I have used Rick for my own personal financing needs when I was unable to provide them for myself. He is my number one source for financing service and expertise.
— Christopher M.
I had the honor and pleasure to work with Rick on many endeavors during my tenure at the Massachusetts Mortgage Association (MMA). Rick serves as a member of the Board of Directors and Chairman of the Education Committee at the MMA and his dedication to his profession and to the mortgage industry is refreshing, and unsurpassed by none. He is very well-informed of the regulatory issues, the licensing guidelines, and specifically the education requirements for mortgage brokers and loan originators. Rick's trustworthiness, his diligence in his work, and his friendly demeanor makes him a joy to work with.
— Clarice C.
Rick's deep knowledge of the industry combined with his thoroughness elevates him to the upper tier of producers in the business. He makes it a habit to ask enough questions to stay two steps ahead of the game which is integral in such a detail oriented environment. I highly recommend partnering up with Rick, he is a proven winner.
— Dave P.
Rick took the time, over a year in advance, to work with me on improving my credit score to make me eligible for a VA home loan. He is the ultimate professional and has a sincere passion for working with Veterans. If you are in the process of navigating through the mortgage process this is the man you need to talk with.
— David B.
Mortgage Network's team made this a very easy process. They were very informative and on top of everything. They made sure that my closing went as smooth as possible. Thank you!

Working with Richard was extremely pleasant and professional. My wife and I were in a sticky refinance situation and we were very gun shy to use anyone. Richard was recommended to us and within 5 minutes if meeting him he put our minds to ease. Richard was very thorough and well-informed, he explained every process to us from start to finish. I will only use Rick going forward on any refinance or house sale that we have in the future. He was by far the best I have used in my time.
— Garrett G.
I worked with Rick to secure a mortgage for my first home. Rick was a true professional and he brought a great amount of industry knowledge to the table. My wife and I were extremely happy that we were able to work with Rick, as he made this stressful time a whole lot easier for both of us. I would recommend Rick to anyone as he is personable, trustworthy and excellent to deal with.
— Gerald P.
I am pleased to recommend Rick's services as a Loan Officer. He worked closely and effectively with myself and my clients to put together a good loan product and closed the loan as promised.

When one thinks of a professional whether that person is an athlete, titan of industry, or guy sweeping floors, we can only assume they have integrity, honor and a right moral compass. Rick Bettencourt has all three of the above traits. I have known Rick for many years. He carries all of what is best in people, taught to him from two wonderful parents. If you need any assistance in `swimming with sharks` within the mortgage arena, do not hesitate to reach out to Rick, you won't be disappointed.
— James M.
Rick and his whole team were excellent! He was available at all times!
— John D.

First and foremost, Rick is a well-rounded stand up individual, which is very hard to find with other professionals in his field. He provides a level of expertise not found with other mortgage bankers. He works tirelessly in order to achieve deadlines and goes beyond the extra mile to assure his clients are aware of all the caveats with no surprises. He goes above and beyond his normal duty to make sure his clients get the best service that can be provided by an individual.
— Michael B., CPA
My experience with Richard is on like I have only experienced with those that have served. His loyalty, dedication to duty, and professionalism in craft are beyond any of which i have ever seen. Richard embodies what it means to care for veterans and helps them achieve their goals. I have never met such a professional and will forever refer him to veterans, friends, and family that are looking for a true and honest stand up loan officer that has their best interest in mind. My experience was phenomenal and I'm blessed that Richard found me.
— Mike & Kristen D.

Rick is the man- I've done 6 mortgages with him- 3 purchases, 3 refinances. He always delivers on deadlines, rates, and approvals. If he says it will happen, it does. He is also a passionate advocate for getting veterans what they need. Corinne handles all his paperwork and has never not responded to me within an hour. I can't say enough about them.
— Tim & Catherine M.
Richard is an extremely knowledgeable and committed person in the mortgage industry. He has the knack of combining the need for detail along with superior service to his customers. His integrity is beyond question and I would recommend him without hesitation.
