Given that we may not have had the opportunity to meet yet, I thought I'd lay out a few options to give you some background of ideas and strategies our clients have used successfully in this complex market.

"Brent and his team were great to work with. Felt that Brent was able to do some outside the box thinking to help achieve my loan goals that other lenders would not put the time and effort into doing. Would highly recommend Brent to anyone looking to get a home loan."
