Phil Bruni

Senior Loan Officer Homebridge Spokane River NMLS: 174034

I have an extensive history in the mortgage industry working on both the bank and broker sides. Even though I originate FHA, Conventional, VA and USDA; I also specialize in the WA State Bond Program and teach the First Time Homebuyer Class walking first time homebuyers through their first home purchase. I have a passion for this as my first time purchase was not what I would want anyone to experience.

This is one of several loans that Phil has handled for me and he is awesome! I work with Homebridge because of Phil as he is so attentive to detail, walks with me throughout the whole process, and is always available to answer questions and solve problems. He is extremely knowledgeable about the finance process and is able to speak to anything that comes up application to meeting with the Title company. Phil is a gem and Homebridge is lucky to have him!

Recent Refinance Client
We used to say that James Brown was "the hardest working man in show business" but that title now has to go to Phil Bruni. This gentleman never stops doing whatever it takes to get the job done. He helped me get my refinance done even while in the middle of the first wild and woolly days of a worldwide pandemic. Phil is honest, direct, helpful, supportive and effective. He even helped handle several annoying administrative items that helped me a lot as I was busy working at a new job. I can highly recommend him.

He have always been there to answer my questions. All information is clear and easy to understand. He goes beyond expectations. The whole process that was laid out for me, its like a walk in the park. My family and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your family now.

I recently worked with Phil on my first home loan. I went to his first time home buyer class as well. Phil goes above and beyond anyone I have worked with before. He was always available for me when I had a question or concern and made sure I understood every step of the process. His dedication made me feel like I was his first priority throughout. Not only was his work phenomenal, but his personality and enthusiasm made the process so smooth and helped me feel comfortable making the biggest purchase of my life to date. He made the experience feel personal and tailored just for me and it was an incredible and joyful experience. I would recommend anyone to him for not just home loans but questions and information. He will get you ready to be a home owner with confidence.

Phil was very personable; he loved my daughter and made himself a part of my family very quickly. He explained the entire loan process, took into account my comfort level for monthly payments, and reached out to me promptly when any developments arose. I would recommend him to anyone who was in my situation as a single mom with a smaller budget who would want someone to walk through the entire process with.

Phil was professional and courteous. He has an attention to detail that I've not experienced before and made sure our voice was heard through this whole home buying experience. I highly recommend him as a lender for anyone!

Phil did a fantastic job taking time to model several different mortgage scenarios and provided clear explanations and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. There is a lot to be said by using a local loan originator to help navigate the process. Phil got the deal over the goal line and I'm confident if we would have used an "internet" broker we would not be able to say the same thing.
Thanks Phil, You ROCK!

Phil was fantastic to work with! My husband and I just purchased our first home and we feel beyond blessed that Phil was on our team to make that happen. We met Phil at his first-time home buyers’ class and were beyond impressed with his knowledge of the industry, as well as his caring nature. Phil immediately created a culture of trust and dependability, so we made an appointment with him to start the conversation of becoming pre-qualified with Homebridge. Phil had fantastic communication, always being timely in his responses (even on the weekends) and was very well organized. Phil made our home buying process a great experience! I highly recommend Phil Bruni!

Phil is the best of the best. He embodies every characteristic you want in a professional who is representing you. He made everything simple and easy and allowed us to ask the dumb questions without making us feel inferior. He will continue to have our business.

Phil was wonderful to work with in our lending process for purchasing a home on a VA loan. We met him through a free community class on home-buying and lending. He was funny and informed on various loan types and helped us land in a comfortable position financially. He was always available via phone, text, email and on weekends, which we appreciated with our hectic schedules. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Phil again and recommend him without reservation. I especially appreciated his transparency in setting realistic time-frames and patience in answering my hundreds of questions.

My wife and I had been renting for a couple years and were now ready to dive into home ownership once again. We were fortunate enough to meet Phil who helped us search out various loan options, collect the appropriate documents and get the best loan for our situation. He kept us updated as to the status of our loan and was more than helpful when it came to understanding our loan. We highly recommend Phil and his for any of your loan needs.

I had the privilege of having Phil Bruni as my home loan consultant for my first home purchase. My purchase was a short sale that actually turned out to be quite a long and tricky procedure to secure the sale. I was able to count on Phil through the entire process. He was always available when I needed to talk with him, and responded promptly to paperwork and other matters regarding the sale of the home that needed to be attended to. He went out of his way to ensure that we had documents prepared as they were requested from the selling parties sometimes urgent and unexpected timeline. Phil was able to counsel me through the short sale process and always welcomed my multitude of questions. He is a kind and genuine man that you can count on. I highly recommend Phil Bruni as your home loan consultant.

I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Phil on our recent home purchase. We met Phil through his Homebuyer Education course, which he expertly led, and we are so grateful we found him. Phil took the time to really get to know us and our situation, so that he could offer individualized service to best serve our needs. Phil was always available to answer questions and provide status updates, and he hand-delivered paperwork to me at my office so that the process would move along as efficiently as possible. Phil even attended our closing appointment after hours to show his support and be available to answer questions during the process. Phil's depth of knowledge and his personal touch set him apart, and I recommend him to everyone! Thanks for shepherding us, Phil, and for all your assistance.

Phil Bruni was highly recommended to us by a relative. I had spoke to several credit unions and other lenders but all of them treated me like a number. They had no interest in my situation or who I was they just wanted to see if I qualified. So I gave Phil a chance and it was great experience. We got to Know Phil very well and He took the time to get to know Me and my wife. He made a very complicated and stressful situation as easy as possible and even took the time to hand deliver documents when we were in a pinch for time. If you are a first time buyer or its been a while then Phil is the one to see.
