"As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I were very confused about the mortgage process.  Brent was able to easily explain the many aspects of getting a loan and helped at every step.  He was constantly available to answer any questions and never pressured us into doing something we weren't comfortable with.  Brent went the extra mile to get us pre-approved during this time of very strict lending standards.  His Good Faith Estimate was extremely clear and concise.  It was the only one we received that we could easily understand, and he did not try to sneak in extra charges or points like other lenders.  Brent gave us a discount for my husband being a teacher and had the best overall price of the other lenders we dealt with (even without the discount)."
