I know firsthand how stressful this process can be. When I tried buying my first house, all I wanted was information, connection, and commitment to the success of my loan. What I received? Crickets… and eventually a worn-out sense of disappointment in my loan officer.

Buying a home should not be a stressful process, and my experience set me on a path to change that. Unlike a click-of-a-button process, I believe in providing engaging and personalized services for every aspiring homeowner, and solving problems alongside my clients every step of the way. The driving force for me in this business is making the process of securing a family’s home easy and enjoyable.

Stepping into these decisions involve many moving parts.

  • The lowest interest rate doesn’t always translate into the best long term financial decision. It shouldn’t be like buying a new vacuum: finding one with all the fancy gadgets at the best price point. Don’t treat your loan like a commodity – this is a human interaction.
  • Paying off your debt and declaring you’re ready for action could create unintended consequences. Interest rates and compliance regulations change a mile a minute, and proper guidance is a must to help navigate a successful outcome.
  • Independent research only takes you so far: a seasoned loan officer is trained to walk alongside you through this process.
  • You shouldn’t assume every mortgage loan is the same.

You We have to think differently

My goal is to equip you with confidence in this big decision, earning your trust as the mortgage loan officer who helped you achieve your goal of buying a home.

Since my earliest memories of competitive gymnastics, growing up in a military family, and becoming a mom, I draw energy from people-driven challenges, solved through determination and a keen attention to detail.

The resilience I have used for decades to build my business into the Top 1% of my industry is the same resilience I invest in my clients, as we work together to secure them a new home. I believe in the parallel power of hard work and a caring spirit to set my clients up for success – leaving them better off than where they began.

Based in Arlington, VA, I spend my weekends gardening, reading, exercising and learning about Virginia history (and, I’m a dangerous board game player). I serve clients in Virginia, DC, and Maryland.

Here’s just a small sampling of the reviews our clients and partners have shared with us.

We would like to thank Richard, Nathan and Jon for their courtesy, professionalism and excellent communication throughout the entire process. We have applied for many mortgages before but this has to rate as the most organized, simplified and easiest loan experience we’ve ever had. It all began with our initial conversation with Leslie and my wife and I knew immediately that we would select her and McLean Mortgage to handle our home buying needs over many other mortgage lenders. Great service and a great team of mortgage professionals.

Leslie Wish and her team were wonderful to work with. As first-time home buyers, Leslie walked us through every step of the fast-moving process. Her team was responsive, reliable and most importantly, knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Leslie's services to our friends and family looking for a lender.

We have used Leslie and her team three times now - and there's a reason for that. As usual, Leslie and her team provided excellent service. We refinanced our house in April and from beginning to end, the transaction was seamless. Would highly recommend Leslie for all of your mortgage needs! She will work hard and get the job done with excellence!
Jessica F.
As a first time home buyer, I was looking for a lender who was both knowledgeable and very easy to work with - Leslie and her team came through on both counts. Not only that, but they took me from offer to close in just three weeks! The personalized service I received was second to none. I would highly recommend working with Leslie if you’re looking for a mortgage. You won’t regret it!
Susan D.
I was introduced to Leslie Wish and her team from my real estate agent. They did an amazing job. The process was fast, efficient, and easy. Leslie even showed up at my closing to give me some moving boxes in case I needed a few extra. I would highly recommend this team to anyone!
Tyler W.
We are just loving our new home and would like to take a minute to thank you, Jon and Leslie for making the mortgage process stress free for us. It was a pleasure dealing with you and your team. Everyone was very professional, knowledgeable and communicated with us and our investor during all phases of the process.
Clarissa & George W.
Leslie Wish from McLean Mortgage is the BEST! Really, I’m not just saying this, all of my buyers unless they are paying cash or have their own lenders and even then they still have to at least talk to Leslie. She makes your clients feel special and makes the transition very smooth. Our last transaction instead of walking away like most lenders would once the find out a project is not VA or FHA approved Leslie and her team got the building approved in about 20 days and we made it to settlement date per the contract. YES, thank you Leslie!!!
Nancy A.
Leslie and her team are absolutely phenomenal. We had a very short timeline to get our approval (and right smack in the middle of the holiday season, no less!). Leslie and her wonderful team (Richard and Jon) worked tirelessly day and night to process our loan. They answered our questions quickly, accurately, and patiently, ensured that they requested upfront the documents and information that they knew from experience would be asked for by the underwriter, and had a seamless process using an efficient web portal that made it so easy to upload documents and understand the steps. Leslie and her team are true professionals and we did not feel any anxiety or stress during the entire process. With their in-depth knowledge of the industry. expertise, use of technology, and amazing customer service, they successfully processed our loan, we locked in a great interest rate and now we have a beautiful new home.
