“Ken Allen has been my loan representative for over 20 years now and I will always continue my business with him as long as he is available! My family has also done business with Ken and would highly recommend him. Trust is a huge step when searching for who to request a loan from. Ken has helped me with every loan I have ever received giving me truthful advice and answering many of my questions while being very upfront in his guidance. Ken is a straight forward guy who will not jeopardize his reputation if something does not seem right. He is an expert and I have let him lead the way in all of my loans and I have never been surprised or felt taken advantage of. I rarely write any reviews but I believe it is worth taking the time to let others know that Ken is a great honest guy who truly only looks out for you. ”
Wade Bates - Buyer
“I first did business in 1996 as a new husband and father. He helped us as a young couple get into our first home. When we remodeled, he was there again to help. I had not worked with Ken in almost 15 years when I gave him a call again. He remembered everything about our past relations and once again, Ken and his team delivered. The entire process went smoothly, as always with Ken. Ken values the relationship in the transaction, and that is very important when making such a big "life" decision. Just saying thank you, isn't enough, but thank you”

Chong-Sun Ahn - RN
“Ken Allen has been my loan officer for many loans I have had over the years for new financing as well as refinancing of homes. He is always positive, creative & "can do" attitude no matter how difficult or seems impossible to get the loan done, when other mortgage company loan officers couldn't get it done. I can say enough how grateful I am to have Ken to do all my home financing needs and I will highly recommend him to anyone who needs home financing. He has many connections & even referred a couple of real estate agents when I needed to sell my house quickly and the agent was proactive to facilitate to get the house ready to put it on the market & sold in just a few days. Ken's assistant, Kevin is also very helpful to get the loan process expedite by keeping updates of the process & communicates constantly to get all the documents in order. I think Homebridge Bank is very fortunate to have Ken working in the team. ”
ASH Hussain - Program Executive
“We were looking for a quick close on our Estate property. Kevin and Ken made it happen within 3 weeks. Great care and service with daily follow up.

Thank you and looking forward to working with this team on our next purchase, Cheers!”
