Russell Randolph and Mary Turner-- Hyattsville, Maryland
"I can honestly say Brent Mendelson made my first home buying experience a very pleasant one. From our first conversation he explained each and every option that was available to me and I never felt pressured into any decision. My phone calls were handled in a professional and timely manner. All in all I really couldn't imagine my home buying process being any easier. Even now that the deal is done I would still feel 100% comfortable calling Brent with any questions. He extended his expertise beyond the scope of the business deal and I look forward to contacting Brent for my next home purchase. Thanks for everything Brent!! "
Conrad W. Rochester, Jr.-- Centreville, Maryland
"I really appreciate everything Brent did for me to refinance my mortgage. He was pleasant to work with especially after having a bad experience the first time I refinanced my loan. After shopping around for loan rates Brent offered the best rate in the area. I picked Brent not only for his competitive rate but also for his can-do attitude. He was very friendly and courteous throughout the process. I am very happy & satisfied with the outcome. I would definitely use him again..thanks for everything you did."
Kimberly Carter-- Germantown, Maryland
"In a truely insane process, Brent was the most helpful person a first-time buyer could have hoped for. My purchase of a rowhome in Baltimore City that needed renovation turned into an adventure that would scare most buyers out of the market for good. Brent navigated me through all phases of the process well beyond what I would have expected from my mortgage broker, and acted positively on my behalf when the process met some very unexpected hurdles. He'll be the first and only recommendation I have to any friends or family looking to finance their purchase of a home in the Baltimore/Washington area." "
Gregory Bednarski -- Baltimore, Maryland
"The Best! Simply, the Best"
Jay Hepner-- Gaithersburg, Maryland
"After comparing with over 10 lenders and brokers, I settled on Brent Mendelson and Choice Finance based on the outstanding interest rate and closing fees. There were several examples during the closing process where we almost ran into snags, but Brent went out of his way to negotiate with all parties to ensure that there were no problems."
Jason Benkoski-- Ellicott City, Maryland
"Brent Mendelson is the best thing since sliced bread in my opinion. Brent did in just a few short days what no other Lenders could do in 3 1/2 weeks. Mr. Mendelson was very polite, very professional and kind enough to work on my loan as soon as he returned from his honeymoon. For fast and exact, top of the notch service, Brent Mendelson is the person to have on your side. I would recommend Brent Mendelson to anyone that is seeking a professional loan officer that knows his stuff inside and out."
Nardyne Jefferies-- Washington, D.C.
