“One of the most important things that a person can do when purchasing a home is educate themselves as much as possible about finance. This is without a doubt one of my favorite parts of what I do. There are so many myths about what we are supposed to do with our money and how we are supposed to manage our debts. It is my role to educate people about what makes the most sense for their personal circumstances while developing a plan that truly fits their needs.

In life and work, I am dedicated to providing my clients with the most beneficial loan program to fit their individual needs. A sound financial foundation begins with owning a home.”

I highly recommend and have recommended Homebridge to others.”

“Brandon and Team did a great job! Nick Grasst was very helpful and responsive throughout! Thank you! -garth”
Collin H. Jul-20
“Brandon is great, and Homebridge made my refinance easy. COVID has definitely made things more challenging but we found a way to get a remote notary out and everything closed on time. The only issue that came up was the fact that rates did drop quite a bit over the course of the loan process and Homebridge wasn't in a position to lower my rate to where I had hoped it could be. Other than that, everything about the loan process was smooth, efficient and relatively easy. Thanks!!!!!”
Christopher B. Jul-20
“Brandon and Team did a great job! Nick Grasst was very helpful and responsive throughout! Thank you! Garth”

“Brandon and his team were flawless on my loan. They were timely, very communicative and skipped the BS. this is my 4th home loan and I've had bad experiences with other lenders. So this review comes with experience. Seriously, solid team.”
Kevin Lyons
“My wife and I are sitting in our new home as happy as can be thanks to Brandon and his amazing team over at Home Street Bank. Where most banks take 25-30 days to close Brandon got the job done in 17 days. Their quick turnaround was instrumental in us landing our first home. It made our offer way more competitive. Working with the whole team at Home Street Bank was a pleasure. They were always quick to relay information and always took the time to walk us through any and all steps of the process. They were always on top of it and doing it with great customer service and a friendly attitude. We could not recommend then enough. If you are looking to buy a home then do yourself a favor and contact Brandon.”
Michael J
“Brandon and his team are fantastic and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a mortgage. They are super easy to work with and always available when needed (even on weekends).

Scott Matetich - Buyer
“I've heard many times from people about how stressful the home buying process is and about the lengthy financing requirements, so I was prepared for the worst. Fortunately for us, Brandon's team at Homebridge Bank were truly amazing. Nick was the associate who worked with us and he reassured us throughout the process and made me feel very comfortable by answering our many questions with an air of calm and confidence. The underwriter had additional questions for us but all was handled with ease and our accelerated closing went through on time. Kudos to the Ehrlich team! ”
Matt M - Attorney
“Brandon and his team handled our loan professionally and in some instances went beyond what I should reasonably have expected of them. One member of his team used his professional network to help us with the move, closing, and loan processing in ways you do not expect from a bank. I would gladly recommend their services to others.”

All in all they make the process of working through your loan as simple as can be.”

We simply could not have asked for better representation. ”

Gaard Swanson
“Buying, refinancing or securing a home equity line of credit is always stressful. Not with Brandon Ehrlich and his team. They were professional, accessible and always one-step ahead of a very challenging process. Brandon was on top of every aspect of our transaction. I've dealt with other lenders and have had disastrous results. Our experience with Homebridge was smooth and efficient! I highly recommend anyone considering a lender to use Brandon for your transaction. He's honest, fair and gives it to you straight--- no bologna! ”
