“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."

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!

We could not recommend Brandon and his team more. The purchase of our new home was an easy and smooth process and we look forward to working with them again for our home mortgage needs.

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.

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.

Vice President
Brandon and his team were very helpful when I needed to get a pre-qualification! He was always there for any questions I had, and gave me advice when it was needed. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the perfect house and decided to wait to buy. When I want to get pre-qualified once more, I will definitely go back to see Brandon!

My husband and I's most recent real estate purchase was, at times, a little tricky. But Brandon and his team were there with us every step of the way! Attentive and intuitive; these guys took on more than their fare share of the stress of our transaction. At any little hiccup, they made us feel secure and well taken care of. We simply could not have asked for better representation.

I've used Brandon and his team for a number of loans and re-finances over the past decade and would definitely recommend them to family, friends, co-workers, etc. They are clear, consistent and timely with what needs to get done and when in order to close your loan. They never hit you with last minute surprises or have significant deviations from their quotes. They place an emphasis on customer service! All in all they make the process of working through your loan as simple as can be.

Brandon has facilitated multiple refinances and purchases for me over the years. He and his team consistently perform on time and always deliver exactly what they say they will do. In addition it is always an enjoyable pain free experience due to prompt communication and extensive knowledge of the product. I will be back every time.

Buying, refinancing or securing a home equity line of credit is always stressful. Not with Brandon Ehrlich and his team. They were professional, accessible and always one-step ahead of a very challenging process. Brandon was on top of every aspect of our transaction. I've dealt with other lenders and have had disastrous results. Our experience with HomeStreet was smooth and efficient! I highly recommend anyone considering a lender to use Brandon for your transaction. He's honest, fair and gives it to you straight--- no bologna!
