" Bryan was amazing! He was extremely responsive and patient. At no point did we feel like we were bothering him with silly questions. He made the process extremely painless and even enjoyable. We would work with Bryan again in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone we know and care about! He set the bar unrealistically high for any other banker we work with in the future... "

Bryan was just so amazing and this was my second mortgage with him. I was even more pleased with this one than the first one! I have recommended everyone I know to Bryan and even told my sister to go through him because of the amazing customer service he provided me! I can't say enough about Bryan and what an amazing job he did!

Patrick K. – 10/16/2015

Bryan went above and beyond what we could ever expect from any Loan Officer! He kept us informed throughout the entire process (from the start with getting us a pre-approval quickly) and made himself readily available to answer any questions, day or night. We want to thank Bryan and his team very much! We are well aware and so very grateful for all the extra work Bryan assisted us with throughout the entire process.

Gregory S. -- Blaine, MN 7/24/2014

Bryan has been very knowledgeable in helping me with my case and i would highly recommend him to any of my friends. He has worked very hard to get my loan approved and even though i thought i didn't have a chance i guess it all worked out...he has kept in contact with me and even brought paper work out to my house...i haven't had any one do that before


Bryan is very knowledgeable and helpful in giving options that will work in a given situation. I will definitely consult Bryan again the next time I am in need to finance or refinance a home.


Bryan helped us purchase a home earlier this year. We had a unique situation that caused some fairly big bumps/concerns on the way but Bryan (and his crew) stuck with it and got the deal done in the end.


Bryan was very helpful from the start. He knew when to pull the trigger on rates. I didn't act as quickly as he said I needed to and it cost me some! As soon as I could I got the documents ready and he executed very quickly. A+


Bryan worked diligently with me through a difficult mortgage due to baggage I had. I would not hesitate to call and use him again if and when I would need a loan. I would also highly recommend him as he was always available up to the final signing of paperwork.


Bryan was extremely responsive and timely during our refinance, he was always reachable and able to answer all our questions. He treated us like we were his only customer. Furthermore he jumped in and helped us navigate problems we encountered post closing with the mortgage company. We will return to Bryan for all future mortgage needs.


I would highly recommend Bryan. Bryan was very responsive and transparent. He clearly communicated throughout the process from start to finish, he even followed up afterward for feedback. We appreciated his big picture approach as it really helped simplify things. And, it was very helpful to understand the process and next steps. Again, I would highly recommend Bryan. Only surprise was the high level of service, thank you Bryan!


Made refinancing as easy as possible. Was quick to update me with any changes in loan changes. I would recommend him to anyone I know that has financing needs. He and his staff were professional and easy to understand.


Bryan was thorough, friendly, and able to answer all my questions in a professional way. He made our home refinancing experience very painless and smooth!


Bryan was very helpful in getting us financed to purchase our first home. I wasn't sure we would be able to buy a home with our not so great credit. He answered our numerous questions, told us what options we had, and made the whole process run smoothly.


Bryan guided us in securing two refinances on our home. Also, he was very helpful in giving us advise on when to make various moves. He follows up to ensure that we are satisfied with his results. He is very trustworthy.


About Bryan

I have built an extensive business in mortgage lending over the past 19 years by adhering to a very simple philosophy, "provide an excellent client experience that is unsurpassed in the industry".

I work hard to analyze each individual situation and tailor financing to best meet their goals and objectives. By being honest, open, and transparent throughout the loan process, I'm able to make them feel comfortable every step of the way.

With the strength of Guaranteed Rate, I am able to provide lending for primary, second homes and investment properties. We do Renovation Loans, Reverse Mortgages, and Commercial Loans as well. When called upon to achieve the impossible and save deals that other lenders could not close, I have consistently come through.

By reading all of my "customer testimonials" whether on this site, Zillow, or other places on the internet, you will recognize that I take my client's experience very seriously.

Quite simply, my goal is to make the financing process as smooth and easy as possible. Give me a call, I'm here to help.

Bryan interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have been originating mortgage loans for over 19 years. I was fortunate enough to have a great mentor when I got into the business. The biggest thing he instilled in me is don’t ever compromise your ethics to do a loan and always return calls promptly.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
To work with a Loan Officer that is individually licensed and works full-time. With all the changes in the industry, programs, and disclosures, you want to make sure they work with someone that knows how to get the loan approved and closed on time. Buying a home should be a fun and exciting time and if the Loan Officer doesn’t know what they are doing it can become stressful very quickly.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Make sure to get all the required documentation to the Loan Officer and Processor right away. If they are requesting something from you, it is being asked for by the Underwriter that will approve your loan. Also don’t go out of town or open and new accounts during the process.
Are you active in any fundraising organizations? What goals and/or success have you helped them achieve?
For the last 15 years I have been on a Committee for my church that raises funds for an inner city Catholic school here in Minneapolis. We hold an annual event that raises money to help support the much needed education for these children in hopes that they won’t drop out of school and they can go on to get a college education. Without these funds, the school could not function.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am a thrill seeker. I have skydived, drove a race car, jumped off a 40 ft. cliff into open water, among many other things. There is not a roller coaster that I would not go on.
