“One of the most important things that a person can do when purchasing a home is educate themselves as much as possible about finance. This is without a doubt one of my favorite parts of what I do. There are so many myths about what we are supposed to do with our money and how we are supposed to manage our debts. It is my role to educate people about what makes the most sense for their personal circumstances while developing a plan that truly fits their needs.

In life and work, I am dedicated to providing my clients with the most beneficial loan program to fit their individual needs. A sound financial foundation begins with owning a home."

I was very impressed with Brandon and his team's level of service and expertise. They were communicative, concise, professional and always there when I had a question or needed a response. It's clear that the entire team is detail-oriented and understands what it means to take care of their client. The whole team was prompt with their communication throughout the entire transaction, and always with such kindness and professionalism. I have purchased other homes in the past and I've never had this level of service. I would HIGHLY recommend Brandon and his team to anyone looking to acquire a loan.

I have worked with Brandon's team on numerous new home purchases and refinancing. They are very easy to work with, helpful through the process, and fully explain a very complicated process. I have recommended Brandon to numerous friends and coworkers for their mortgage needs. Also, Brandon really helps navigate through the process to recommend the best route to take to save me the most money. No doubt 5 stars.

Brandon, Nick, and the whole team were a pleasure to work with every step of the way. They are organized and quick, with expert advice and follow-through. The entire process was smooth and exactly as they suggested, with no surprises. They worked with our real estate team seamlessly to help us come out on top, out of 10 offers, and win our home. Since first working with Brandon in 2004, we have received invaluable advice and great service. Thank you Ehrlich and Associates!

The Erlich team was on top of everything and quick to respond to all our questions and needs. They worked diligently to make sure we got all of our documents in order so that our loan could close on time. This was my second time working with this team and I've been very pleased both times.

Brandon and his team were flawless on my loan. They were timely, very communicative and skipped the BS. this is my 4th home loan and I've had bad experiences with other lenders. So this review comes with experience. Seriously, solid team.

My wife and I are sitting in our new home as happy as can be thanks to Brandon and his amazing team over at Home Street Bank. Where most banks take 25-30 days to close Brandon got the job done in 17 days. Their quick turnaround was instrumental in us landing our first home. It made our offer way more competitive. Working with the whole team at Home Street Bank was a pleasure. They were always quick to relay information and always took the time to walk us through any and all steps of the process. They were always on top of it and doing it with great customer service and a friendly attitude. We could not recommend then enough. If you are looking to buy a home then do yourself a favor and contact Brandon.

Brandon and his team are fantastic and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a mortgage. They are super easy to work with and always available when needed (even on weekends). They were able to get a pre-approval letter furnished by Monday morning when I first applied on a Friday afternoon. They go above and beyond.

This was our second transaction with Brandon and his team at HomeStreet. Went very smoothly, even with a few wrinkles that happened just before closing. Fast communication throughout the process, and very friendly folks.

Brandon and his team gave us several options for 30 and 60 day rate locks. The process was very smooth. We were coming to Seattle from another state and we were able to upload documents. His team responded to questions and were very diligent. Thanks Brandon!

Brandon, Katie, Nick & Sophia were extremely helpful! They clearly explained the pre-approval process and answered all of my questions. They laid out the best loan programs and terms for my specific needs so we are fully ready to make an offer when the right house comes along. I would highly recommend Brandon & his team to any of my friends or family members who are looking for an experienced lender.

Brandon and his team (notably Katie Deschenes) did a fantastic job on what turned out to be a relatively complex financing involving two business owners, and a very tight time table. The team creatively solved problems and continually broadened options at every turn. We're thrilled to have found and purchased our dream home!

Brandon and his team were excellent. They were very patient with me to help me understand everything along the whole process. They also worked very quickly and felt they handled it all with my best interest at heart.

Brandon and his team handled our loan professionally and in some instances went beyond what I should reasonably have expected of them. One member of his team used his professional network to help us with the move, closing, and loan processing in ways you do not expect from a bank. I would gladly recommend their services to others.

Buyer
I've heard many times from people about how stressful the home buying process is and about the lengthy financing requirements, so I was prepared for the worst. Fortunately for us, Brandon's team at Homestreet Bank were truly amazing. Nick was the associate who worked with us and he reassured us throughout the process and made me feel very comfortable by answering our many questions with an air of calm and confidence. The underwriter had additional questions for us but all was handled with ease and our accelerated closing went through on time. Kudos to the Ehrlich team!

I have often called and asked Brandon questions about finances, real estate issues and personal guidance. He has unerringly guided my family successfully through many situations that arose where expert counselling was needed.
My family's living experiences in the Puget Sound region have been enriched with his wise counsel and expertise. I will continue to utilize his input wherever life takes us.
Thanks Brandon it it an honor and a privilege to call you my friend.

I had and have many options for financing and re-financing my home. However, due to Brandon and his team's expertise and customer service I will always consider them my only option. They have always taken in to account what is best for me. As a matter of fact I now make reference to Brandon as 'my guy" to family and friends, as in you're buying or refinancing..."I gotta guy". I highly recommend Brandon and team!

I worked with Brandon, Katie and the team to purchase my first house. They were exceptional. They were transparent, dedicated, and attentive to the entire process. They answered any and all questions I had and made me feel at ease throughout. I cannot recommend them enough. I trust them completely and feel so fortunate to have them in my corner when it comes to home ownership.
