1st time home buyer. Brett and his team were EXTREMELY helpful in making sure I understood all of the paperwork and all that was needed of me. My work schedule very hard to work with. They made sure I had all the necessary info and paperwork to keep us AHEAD of schedule even after throwing them a couple curve balls towards the end. Thanks to Brett and his team, I was able to close escrow almost 2 weeks ahead of schedule while feeling confident about the terms and paperwork. Overall it was a great experience and I look forward to purchasing my next home with Brett and his team!

Brett is simply the best mortgage guy in town. He guided us through an extremely complex purchase of a bank-owned property and was with us every step of the way during an escrow that lasted 120 days due to title issues on the property. Brett has incredible knowledge and all the right contacts in the industry, enabling him to make even 'impossible' deals work. I can honestly say I would not have closed on my house were it not for Brett's hard work and positive attitude. HIGHLY recommended.

I just closed on a house, and I had to write a review on how amazing Brett and his team were. Brett was honest, reliable, and extremely efficient. When I started the home search process I contacted 5 different mortgage providers to get different rates and get to know them. Brett blew everyone away. He was so efficient and always took the time to answer my questions, and he knew his stuff. I am so glad that I went with Brett and his team. They closed the deal so quickly, less than 3 weeks! Even the seller of the house who flips houses told me that the team that I used was so efficient and made the process pleasant and easy and was so great to work with. I can’t say enough nice things about Brett. I am just sooooo grateful that Brett was there. This was my first house purchase, and he educated me on all the things that I should know; gave me advice on future issues that may arise and said that if I had any questions too in the future I could always contact him. If you are thinking of buying a home or refinancing or whatever, I HIGHLY recommend contacting Brett. You will be so glad you did. If you are a seller and you see that the buyer is using Brett, you are very lucky. Thanks Brett and the Lightner team. I love my new home!

I struggled through a couple refinances with my bank that dragged on for months and the process was a nightmare. Then I met Brett who guided me smoothly through the process with a great rate and low fees. He and his staff pay attention to the details to get the refi's done! He also refinanced a couple of my rental properties which I was unable to achieve with anyone else. Professional and responsive all the way through!
–Andy F.
Words cannot describe my experience with Brett and his team. They were absolutely wonderful, they made my experience as painless as I could have ever hoped for. Very prompt to answer questions and return calls. Very professional. Just an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. 5 stars is not enough if there was 6 stars they would get it.
