What Our Customers Say About Me

Devin W. Feb-22
“Preston managed to take over the process of getting our mortgage from a prior lender that was NOT meeting our expectations. We were under contract already and were expected to close in 3 weeks. Preston got us a much better interest rate, lower loan costs, and still got us to closing EARLY!! His team is excellent, and our realtor is also now sending business his way. Highly recommend!”
Brett B. Jan-22
“Preston was very personable and professional. His team helped my wife and I navigate a unique housing market and remained patient and continued to work with us as our entering budget changed due to various circumstances. I would use Preston and his team again and would recommend to anyone I know looking to buy in the Oahu area.”

“Mr Preston Sims was the lead person in our refinance effort. He had a fantastic team behind him and we appreciated all of their hard work. We were in continuous contact with Stephanie Fung and Kira Knight. They provided us with much of the updated information, collected all the required documentation, provided support for many of our inquiries and kept us up to date on the loan progress. I'm certain Mr Sims had a much larger role, which we were not exposed to. They all did an awesome job. They believed in us and did all they could to get us to closing. I would not hesitate to let others know about the great service we received from Homebridge Financial Services, and it's fabulous people.”

This was our first home and we weren't in the market to be sharky shoppers. We wanted good people in our corner that were gonna help us avoid making major mistaked throughout the process. Luck us, Preston was a great mortgage broker and even better person. Thank you from the Ayres Family!”
