Thank you for the help with this transaction. I know it was challenging, certainly more challenging than our previous few, however the mission was accomplished and my wife and I are completely satisfied.

Brad; You are a trooper and we will absolutely continue to recommend you to our friends and family. I appreciate your diligence and patience. I'm sure it was challenging at times.

Very Respectfully,

Brad Berndt was our loan officer for a VA jumbo last year. It went smoothly, without drama, and was  exactly what we needed for our 'short sale'. Not sure how you recognize stellar performers in your company, but he meets the highest of performance standards for his customers !! Uncertain when we may use your services again, but you are at the top of the list. Thanks for your support and expressly for Brad's involvement.

I wish to thank you, your bank and especially Tim Corr for sticking by me with this loan and pulling me over the finish line. I have little education or background to write anything as I always had trouble in my English classes and being the only one in my family to finish high school, plus two years of college. It was an AA degree in electronics technology and nothing much to do with breadth electives such as public speaking etc.

Anyway here it goes. I attempted to do an easy FHA renewal of my 5% loan, but was about a week too late with the original one closing on time. I would have to start over from scratch with a hard to do loan or was stuck with what I had.

While looking into HUG on the internet I goofed and did a free rate savings check I thought through HUD. It turned out to be some non government site who told the world I may be in the market for a new loan. Tim Corr was the first to call me and I described my situation plus my bank wants me to start from scratch with 20% down new loan. He came up with suggesting a VA loan which had never come up before or even crossed my mind.

His estimates on, no out of pockets costs to me and I can have a new 3.25%, 30 year loan saving me over $400 a month on payments is everything I wanted or could hope for. I told him let’s do it! I now thank my stars Tim called first and I picked him. Since Tim was the first of several phone calls wanting my business and I was able to tell them I already picked someone and please not call back again. Same thing when I opened up my PC. Tim’s quick action paid off for your bank and for me.

I am old, pessimistic and not an easy client. My wife Tina was of no help with the paper work (used to be her job). Tim constantly gave me phone calls and emails of assurance and literally dragged me across the finish line! Whatever you pay Tim Corr, is not enough! Tim got me a great new loan, I now think I otherwise have never gotten (which will also be my last).

I thank you from the bottom of my heart,

My name is Sonya C., active Navy. I just wanted to let you know how AWESOME Mr. Brad Berndt is! He has assisted me now with two mortgages and I have very much appreciated his hard work and loyalty. I have recommended him to my fellow Sailors, and a few assist them in upcoming financing. He comes through...and I feel like I personally know him because of the way he treats me. So...again...thank you for him!

Appreciated all of the time, discussions whether directly related to the mortgage or not, and recommendations. If you're not great at what you do, you put on one hell of a show! The extra mile has always been one thing I've tried to do for my customers and/or Soldiers and I appreciate you doing the same. We have established a formal relationship with Tracey at 1st Command as well based on your recommendation. Until our next home search, many thanks and be well!
