Getting pre-approved is the crucial first step in the home buying process for any buyer before starting to view homes. It can often make the difference between obtaining the house of their dreams or not being able to qualify. Without speaking with a buyer has no idea what type of payments they are to expect with respect to specific price points and also what price points a lender will be willing to loan.
After working with multiple different lenders over the years, we have found Brent Palmer at Home Street Bank. We give out Brent's name to all of our customers as we know he is a fantastic resource for clients to speak with. Brent has been in the industry for years and as a branch manager has experienced every situation that could possibly occur while acquiring a home loan and knows how to handle it. Brent is dedicated, honest and has glowing reviews from us and his past clients. Home Street bank also has low closing costs, great loan products and service a majority of their loans in house rather than selling them to third party investors on the secondary mortgage market. We seriously vet all referrals we give our clients as we are putting our name on the line and we never second guess handing out Brent's contact information.

This is a true review that from head of the 2nd largest home builder in Arizona who purchased a personal home recently in Portland with us and Brent:
"I have been a real estate developer for the past 26 years (albeit in Arizona and not Oregon) and have worked closely with our preferred lender, as well as outside lenders. In addition, we have employed several in-house real estate agents and, understandably, we work with outside agents as well. Based on the foregoing, I have an idea on what good service looks like in this industry. I want you to know that we experienced great service (not just good service) from our real estate agent Marcus and lender Brent. You both did an incredible job throughout our home buying process and I just wanted to take a moment out of your day to let you know. Thank you both for everything."

Here is a recent review from a home buyer in beautiful Eastmoreland,
"I recommend Brent without hesitation. Thanks to him, we were able to explore a number of options for our home loan, assess the financial impact, and move forward quickly with our decision. At each step of the process, he was accessible to answer questions and resolve issues. As first-time homebuyers, we weren't sure what to expect, but Brent made the process as smooth and painless as possible. It was a pleasure to work with Brent!"
