Brent is a results-oriented, friendly, and diligent go-getter who really helped me when I was in the market for a new home. Of all the mortgage specialists I worked with, he was head and shoulders above the rest giving me knowledgeable and timely answers to the complex nuances of a constantly evolving home market.” -Ali G, Brand and Creative Specialist/Strategist

Brent helped us with the financing of our first home. He was great to work with and completely approachable. He answered all of our questions and gave us more information that we didn’t realize we even needed. His instinct led him to lock in a rate early for us and it played to our advantage as rates rose by the time we closed. He was patient with all of our scenarios we presented and worked the financing of repairs in the FHA 203k Streamline loan so that we could maximize the monies and the amount of self-performed work we took on. I would highly recommend Brent to anyone looking into financing their home!” – Tom E., Carpenter and Residential Energy Analyst

I recommend Brent without hesitation. Thanks to him, we were able to explore a number of options for our home loan, assess the financial impact, and move forward quickly with our decision. At each step of the process, he was accessible to answer questions and resolve issues. As first-time homebuyers, we weren’t sure what to expect, but Brent made the process as smooth and painless as possible. It was a pleasure to work with Brent!” – Lyndsay H., CFO at Evergreen Studios

Brent provided my buyer with great service. He was efficient and delivered on time! I can definitely recommend him for your Mortgage Services with Homebridge!“- Victoria J., Broker and Owner Jayne Realty, LLC

What Our Customers Say About Me

Janae H. May-21
“Nicole, on the Brent Palmer team, was amazing!!! She contacted me personally by phone to give me updates in a timely fashion. Nicole answered all my questions and listened to my reservations about refinancing because of past experiences with other mortgage companies. She gave me best case and worst case scenarios based on high/low appraisals and gave me the opportunity to make informed decisions during the refi process. Nicole was honest and extremely competent. I cannot say enough good things about Nicole and the whole team! I will refer this team to everyone I know. Thank you for the BEST loan process I've ever experienced!!!”
Erin P. May-21
“This is the second time I've used Brent Palmer as my lending agent and he's been fantastic every time. He is incredibly professional but still conveys a personal, caring attitude. Anytime I had a question, he was very responsive regardless of the time of day or whether it was on a weekend. He almost always responded with a personal phone call and answered any question I had while also reassuring me about the process in general. He guided me in terms of recommending a realtor and was in close contact with my realtor and the selling agent. In my opinion, this level of communication and support was above and beyond expectations. Although this was my third time purchasing a home, it was my first time doing it on my own, but thanks to Brent, I didn't feel alone during the process.”

And to thank us for choseing them for our loan. Can't say enough they made our dream of owning a home a realty. Definitely recommend them to all our friends and family .”

We plan on purchasing more rental property in the future and will continue to work with Brent because he's quick, responsive, and local.”

Erin G. Oct-20
“Brent was excellent throughout our financing process. He was patient and remained responsive to all of our questions and concerns over the 10 months between our initial contact and actually applying. Since our home purchase was on the other side of the country it took a lot of planning to work out the best way to go about financing our new home and Brent was great at explaining our options. Once we had saved enough for a down payment and found a home we were able to make a competitive offer by offering a 21 day close. This definitely helped us compete in a VERY competitive real estate market and Brent and his team were able to meet this closing deadline. We are very appreciative of the efforts from Brent and his team to meet our closing deadline. Overall, Our experience with Brent and Homebridge was great and very easy. Thank you!”
Richard U. Oct-20
“Brent Palmer took over for me when someone at Homebridge Bank dropped the ball on a refinance a few years ago. He walked me through the process step by step and salvaged the refi. When I wanted to refinance again I naturally contacted him and again, he walked me through the process, pointed out where another lender had not given me complete information, and gave me ALL the information I needed to make appropriate decisions. As long as Brent is in the mortgage business, he will be my go to, no matter what company he's with, for future home finance opportunities.”
Stephane R. Oct-20

joe Passadore - General Manager/Shareholder
“Brent snd his team came through a referral from our lender based on their ability to quickly and efficiently process loans, in our case a home equity loan, utilizing our original appraisal for our refinance. I felt this was a competitive advantage over other financial institutions, as many require or by policy have a second appraisal done which delays the process and can complicate and present conflicts in the approval process. In addition to this advantage regarding the use of the original appraisal used for our refinance, the most impressive part of the process became all about Brent and his teams pace at which they collected information, the professionalism used doing so and the manner in which every step of the process was progressively accomplished with the goal of obtaining a home equity or second the quickest most efficient way possible. This loan process was by far the most organized and easy experience I’ve ever had in lending of any type. They quickly overcame challenges through creative ideas and never stopped moving forward to obtain the necessary information to obtain and ultimately close on our loan. It was impressive to say the least. The entire process start to finish was literally flawless, communication was consistent by all members of his team and the worked as a true team to make our experience the best I could have possibly imagined and in 3 weeks or less, start to finish. I have done many of these loans over the years and I would literally refuse to work with another company or team next time we buy, refinance or apply for a home equity or second on our home. Simply the best experience, exceeding expectations every step of the way! Truly a class A+ team. ”

“I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with Brent on my recent home purchase! This is the second time I have worked with him, and he's offered great assistance every step of the way.

He's always incredibly responsive, checks in with me periodically, and makes himself super available to get things moving when it's "go time." I look forward to sharing his name with anyone in my life looking to buy a home...and while I hope to stay in my fantastic new place for a long time, if/when I find myself looking to buy in the future Brent will, without question, be the lender I reach out to. Thanks so much, Brent!!! I really appreciate all of the time and energy you have offered to help me get into the right home!!!”

“You can tell that Brent is an all around great guy just by observing his work ethic. My wife and I recently refinanced our home with Brent's team. He was fastidious about keeping us up to date on the progress of the process and would call immediately when he needed additional information or documentation. Were we his only clients last month? NO, but he made us feel like it. He worked hard for us and paid attention to every detail to get this loan finished. He will definitely be our mortgage guy the next time we purchase property. ”

Brittany Whitaker - Brittany Whitaker
“Brent and his team worked very hard to get my loan done in four days. I had came to them after my current bank took 45 days to review my profile and still got no where. I was shocked after four days Brent’s team sealed the deal. Their communication was great. I felt like they understood my scenario and could really tell my story to the underwriting team. They knew exactly what to ask for and how to proceed. They are very knowledgeable and straight forward. It felt good that everyone on their team was on the same page with my loan and where it was at during the whole process. I couldn’t be happier going through Homebridge Bank. I will definitely send family and friends their way for future lending. Thank you everyone. We are happy homeowners now!! ”

“Brent and his team were excellent and easy to work with!! My case was a bit complicated, but they made it feel a lot more smooth thanks to their hard work, organization, and availability to answer all my questions. Don Courtney (which I highly recommend as well) advised me to contact the Palmer Team, but I made my decision to use them after reading the reviews from other customers. I contacted them to see what else I needed to get done before looking to buy at the end of 2018. Brent went above and beyond and made the purchase possible a lot sooner than I planned, but I am pleased with that. I Highly recommend the Palmer Team!!”
