My husband and I had an amazing experience with our loan officer, Brent. He was extremely knowledgeable and responsive from start to finish and couldn’t have made the process easier for us. We bought a home several years ago using another lender and that was a nightmare. This time around was a smooth and much more pleasant process. I tend to ask a lot of questions and Brent answered all of them thoroughly and quickly. He also kept us updated on the status at all times and we felt like he...

Brent did an amazing job at getting the loan and the amount just right for us. He even worked on the weekends continuing to coach us through this process as if was our first home purchase. I will definitely recommend Brent to all our friends and family that are looking to purchase a home with a knowledgeable and friendly Broker such as Brent.

About Brent

The Mortgage Business has always been my passion. I started 23 years ago and have taken care of thousands and thousands of clients over the years with purchases or refinances of their home. I pride myself in being knowledgeable, personable, and available. This is not a 9 to 5 job and you can call me or contact me evenings and on weekends.

I attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids for Business Administration. I have three teenage kids who are growing up way too fast and I enjoy life with activity and friends an family. I believe that every transaction I work on is a true measurement of my reputation, and am proud to be your mortgage lender of choice. Your home and your family are the center of your world and I make sure that your "center" is protected.

Brent interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have been in the mortgage business for 23 years. I was inspired by the challenge to create an honest solution to people's needs to buy and refinance houses.
Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
My typical customer is not typical. They come from a multitude of places and origins. My typical customer is a referral from a friend, previous client or referral partner.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I evaluate credit, income and the home's value. Then I provide choices that will allow the client to evaluate and make the best mortgage choice, based on those options.
What are the pros and cons of a fixed rate mortgage versus an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM)?
Typically my clients choose fixed rate mortgages at a competitive rate. Adjustable Rate Mortgages have a place for borrowers who are borrowing for more short term situations or borrowing in the Jumbo Mortgage Levels.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
I have had so many challenges as every borrower and situation is different. I tend to ask a lot of questions to "pry" the most options out of my borrowers. If you don't ask tough questions, you may not get the whole story and miss an opportunity to solve a problem that nobody else was tenacious enough to solve. I have helped many self employed people get approved, I have helped a multitude of clients navigate divorce and I am proud to say I have helped 100's of my clients, buy, refinance, and buy again and again. I expect to be your mortgage lender for life!
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Meet with me ahead of time. Take advice and establish good credit before you need to borrow. I will let you know what to expect and navigate you to the finish line.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
Our true HGTV Home Improvement Loan, is the best in the marketplace. Buy a home and do the improvements all in one mortgage!
