We were first time buyers and used Brian’s amazing lender team to get a clear picture of what we were able to buy. The advice we received is treated as a standard part of their business. Everything was explained to us and organized in an easy to understand timeline format. ... Read More

Bryan is awesome! What we thought would just be a meeting about what kind of house we can afford, turned into and hour and half meeting that singlehandedly changed my wife and my entire financial situation. Bryan took the time to educate us and gave us a clear plan to pay off our debts and in a few short months we were able to buy our dream home. What is most important is that I never felt like Bryan was just pushing us because he wanted us to close on any house. We felt like friends and he was giving us genuine advice. He even went above and beyond and gave us tips for financial security for the future. He had us super prepared for the entire closing process and was readily available for all of our questions, no matter when we texted or called him. I honestly believe he is the best in the business and will be recommending him to all my friends and family. ... Read More

Talk about professionalism and getting straight to the point! I came into the office to meet with Bryan so overwhelmed with so many questions for me to buy my first home. After meeting with him all my questions were answered without even having to ask them and got a lot of good info I had no idea it even existed, took the time to explain everything step by step and how it all works. Gave me a good game plan and things I need to do to get the best rate possible and finally be able to buy my first home for myself and my children. Thanks to him I drove home after that meeting with a big smile and a great plan. Definitely a great guy! ... Read More

tldr; When rates come down, I'll be refinancing with Bryan at Preferred Rate! Bryan is very talented, experienced, and creative. He offers a lot of perspective and was an invaluable team member alongside my realtor and attorney. He is skilled at structuring different loan products, offering different solutions, and packaging numbers in a way that makes sense. Additionally, he has a wide network in the real estate world (he has been in real estate, commercial and/or residential, for over two decades), and was the person who introduced me to the realtor I selected for this process. Bryan's business is 100% referral (I can't confirm that obviously, but I was referred to Bryan by a wealth advisor friend, so I believe it!), further underscoring the importance of network. When selecting a lender, it's also important to select someone who can get results within their organizations. Bryan has a lot of tenure within Preferred Rate, so when things are tied up in internally, he knows the levers to turn to get results for his clients. ... Read More
