Ed was professional, prompt and incredibly transparent with any and all questions or information we needed. Not only did he work with us from a completely different state but he got us the lowest possible rate and made working over the phone a breeze.

My husband and I have been using Ed Barbier for the last nine years and could not be happier! In that time we have purchased three properties, sold two and refinanced one and Ed has been accessible and truly helpful every step of the way. He has been knowledgeable about for sale by owner, VA benefits and working with adult disabled family members. His support staff is also always easy to get a hold of and great to work with. Its important to us that our loans be serviced by someone local and for that reason we expect to work with Ed and his team for many more years!

Ed was personable and empathetic to my needs each step of the way through my loan process. From describing which was what, why and how to the pro's and con's of all available options as well. Never once did I hear a tone of irritation or annoyance to the number of phone calls with questions to either Ed or to his assistant Rian.
Without these two, I know I would have taken a wrong financial turn. Because of Ed, I know I made the right decision, feel confident for the long run and will continue to recommend him to friends and colleagues for many more years.
Thanks Ed for being my loan officer since 2003 ( or before- it's been a while)!

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation!
Our home loan process was long and difficult. However, at each step along the way, Ed answered all my questions either through email, text, phone or an actual sit down, in an expedited manner. He also answered my questions in a clear, concise way that was easy for me to understand.
I highly recommend anyone seeking a home loan to talk to Ed.
Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Home Buyer
One word: WOW! Ed is truly awesome! Several years ago we were looking at a different house and he bent over backwards to quickly gave us a pre-qualification letter. He put a lot of work into analyzing our situation. Unfortunately we did not buy the house, but when we recently found our dream home on the river, he once again quickly found a way for us to purchase the new home without immediately selling our current home. Long story short we bought the dream home (Ed made the process smooth/easy) and will soon use him again to Refinance when our old home sells.

Ed Barbier and his team are very friendly. He is the best I have every worked with and was able to coach me in how I could get the best loan and interest rate for my home. My wife and could not recommend any one ells but Ed Barbier and his team. If you’re in the market for a loan, then look no further and give this guy a call.

Ed and Rian were terrific when I recently applied for a loan. They were both there to answer any questions I had and to assist in the process. I really appreciated them making a stressful process easy.

I could not have been any more pleased with how Ed and his team helped me through the whole process. They always tried to make it easy and stress-free for me, and I could not be more thankful for that. As a first time home buyer, I was not sure what to expect. But the whole process has been amazing. Thank you guys for your hard work and dedication to making this a breeze!

I have completed 5 home purchases over the past 15 years along with a refinance and renovation loan in the mix. Ed and his crew have provided me with outstanding loan services for each of these ventures. They are always there to answer every question along the way making the process smooth and transparent from the initial approval letter to closing. I would not recommend anyone else!

You often hear, “if it’s too good to be true, it typically isn’t.” That is definitely not the case with Ed and his team! They remained professional, knowledgeable, and kind throughout what can often be an extremely stressful process. They were open to answer any question and responded immediately! This is not a paid advertisement! This is an actual statement from my personal experience!

It is with great pleasure that I heartily recommend Ed Barbier.

I was introduced, via phone and e-mail, to Ed by a realtor who was helping me move cross-country. During my initial conversation with Ed, I found him to be extremely personable and understanding. My regard for Ed grew even more during the numerous communiques I had with him over the next several weeks. Ed is 'down-to-earth' and always speaks in terms that I can understand---and as a person not deeply familiar with the mortgage loan process, that was very much appreciated.

In short, Ed has a unique combination of skill sets---he is a very nice guy who is also an expert in his field. And the fact that I currently live more than 2200 miles from Ed's office and have not yet met him in person, makes my appreciation of his assistance that much more.

As of this writing, the home my wife and I wanted to buy is officially ours and we will be moving from Memphis to Longview, WA soon. And certainly, we could not have bought this house and waded through the maze of mortgage issues without Ed's help and that of his assistant, Rian Moreau. My wife and I appreciate them more than we can say.

If you would like to contact me for additional information, my number is 901-212-2632.

Thank you.

Ed has helped us out for years with our home financing needs, and has always been the best. He finds ways to make that which would be difficult easier by his knowledge and hard work on our behalf. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help buying or refinancing a home. You will do better nowhere else. I will not look farther for any of our continuing home financing needs.

Ed was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable of the entire process. Very quick to answer questions and contact me in need of any additional information. Always updated me on each step of the process. Very good at checking in with me but not being pushy or nagging.
I've used Ed with homestreet for two mortgages and am very satisfied with both experiences.

I have worked with Ed on loans for residences and investment property and every time he and his assistant, Rian, are top-notch professionals. I would work with them again.

I highly recommend Ed and his team.

Ed killed it start to finish. This was easily the most comfortable I have felt in the home buying process to date. His communication was top notch and timely in every aspect and was easy to understand. If I buy another home, it will only be with Ed’s and HomeStreet’s help!

I have worked with Ed for around 20 years now and he is the best in the business. Ed is very knowledgeable in the lending field and always keeps my clients informed and educated. I have completed multiple loans with ed for myself personally. I would never take my mortgage business anywhere else. Great loan officer and great company.
