As before, when I made my original purchase, I continually felt that the efforts put forth by you, working on my behalf, were no less than as if you were securing financing for yourself .I am grateful that you treat your clients as if they are family. Thank you, yet again, for a truly great experience. ”

“This was our fourth transaction with Rich. He is professional, diligent and extremely knowledgeable in his job. We always appreciate working with Rich.”
Anonymous – May 2020
“Rich was one of four Loan Officers that we talked to after the seller made a 3.5 week close date a contingency. Every other Loan Officer had a reason why the seller's date couldn't work. Rich told us he couldn't guarantee a short close, but he would do his best to accommodate the sellers contingency. The next few weeks went by in a flurry of phone calls, documentation, and white glove treatment from Rich. In the end, we met the seller's contingency, with an APR that was super competitive and an on time close with no hidden surprises. I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate Rich's customer dedication, his clear explanations, and the effectiveness of his back office team. If you need a great Loan Officer - call Rich Hallman.”
Bob C. May 2020
“Richard Hallman was able to do what no other lender would, he was able to get us approved and closed in less than 4 weeks. The seller needed to be out by May 6th and he helped us do just that. He did it in a way that made everyone feel comfortable. Should anyone needs a true professional loan officer talk to Richard.”

“In working with Rich Hallman, of Homebridge Bank, to obtain a home mortgage, I found the experience of purchasing a home to be as pleasant and worry free as opening a savings account. Rich's knowledge, experience, and advice about the best financing options for me in my financial position, were top rate. Rich, with dedication and determination, worked with me around my busy schedule to help me complete my home purchase. From pre-approval to closing, Rich kept the process on track; and, kept me informed with up to the minute details on the progress without delay. I highly recommend Rich Hallman and the services of Homebridge Bank to anyone shopping for a home mortgage. I don't feel as though Rich would have proceeded in any differently, or, worked any harder to close a loan, even if he were working on his own purchase.”

“My wife and I have known Rich Hallman many years through our experience in the real estate industry and recently had a chance to utilize his expertise in securing a cash out refinance loan. Our experience was great and we could not be more grateful! Previous experiences with other lenders in the past have sometimes been a huge dissapointment. Not the case with Rich. He was very prompt in communications, and never made any promises that he could not keep. He did a great job! We will recommend him to everyone we know.”
DiAnn Sager - Real Estate Broker, CNE - RE/MAX Gateway

Some words that I would used regarding Rich Hallman are Experienced, Informed, Knowledgeable, Reliable and Trustworthy. I am absolutely comfortable recommending Rich for your financial transactions! ”

Megan A Harried - Realtor-Windermere Real Estate Whatcom Inc.
“I highly recommend Rich Hallman! In a fast paced market it is essential to have a lender that thinks a couple steps ahead, communicates effectively and matches the current pace of the market. Rich did all of those things and was professional and genuine to my client. I am looking forward to having Rich assist more of my clients with their home loans and achieving their dreams!”
Brenda Haug - Desiganted Broker Owner of New Horizon Realty
“I have been a Real Estate Broker for 32 years and have worked with Rich Hallman for over 18 of those years. He has helped me establish a great business with my clients by providing outstanding service for their mortgages. Buying a house is stressful without the right lender. My clients come to me time and time again to buy homes and if they have used Rich on their first loan they ask to use him again too. That says something right there that they remember and enjoyed the process. Rich is knowledgeable and kind. When it comes to getting a home loan kindness is key. Their are a lot of different loans out there and he can loan on almost any type of home. It takes kindness to explain them, the process and help you through the maze to closing. My husband Dan and I have use him for our personal mortgages for years now. He goes the extra mile to make the process smooth and we appreciate his attention to the details to our transactions. He has our highest recommendation! Sincerely, Brenda Haug”
