Brent Knapp

Mortgage Specialist

Mortgage lending has been in my blood for quite a while — more than twenty years. Right out of college I worked for a Brazilian tech company translating user manuals into English. They went out of business and I was looking for a job when a friend suggested mortgage lending. I asked, “What’s a mortgage?”

I‘ve been hooked ever since, which is long enough to have seen a lot but certainly not everything. Something different comes along every week that keeps it fresh. I guess it’s the nerd in me that likes all the numbers, and the liberal arts side of me that enjoys helping people at a really exciting time of life — buying a home.

I still like to go to work and help someone get a mortgage, everyday. Hopefully, today, I get to help you…

Very responsive

I worked with Brent on two occasions. First was in securing a mortgage for a home. He was very flexible in working with my unique situation and addressing my needs to help me get into the home my wife and I wanted. I later approached Brent again for a refinance of the same mortgage. Brent is very responsive, gives you detailed information about the process and communicates well status of where things are. I’ve enjoyed working with him on both occasions and would highly recommend him.

Produced fabulous results

It was a pleasure working with Brent, we had a unique situation in a lot of respects and he was able to get to the bottom of all of them. His attention to detail was critical as there were a lot of things about our process that were not the norm and he was able to get through it all with his knowledge, persistence, and patience, (both with me and the unique process). Because of his knowledge and willingness to check into our needs we are happy to say he produced fabulous results. I will be referring him to others who may need his services.

He also makes himself available for any questions or concerns! I felt like Brent was transparent throughout the whole process, which I really appreciated.

Timely, professional and personable

I have had Brent help me with financing loans on three homes that I have purchased. He has been timely, professional and personable.

Best bang for my buck

Even though I had never been house shopping before, I found that Brent’s knowledge of the loan industry and market was impressive. He was very good at helping me understand a number of new terms and issues that are integral to home buying that really helped me to make good decisions about what for me is the biggest investment I have made. He helped me get the best bang for my buck and surprised me at the end of the process by cutting my closing costs in half. In addition to being very knowledgeable and talented, he is very comfortable to work with from a personal level. I hired Brent on the advice of a friend who had also used Brent to help him get his home loan and I’m very glad I followed my friend’s advice.

Available and in constant contact

During the process of refinancing my home Brent stayed available and in constant contact with me. I always knew he was just a phone call away. He stayed patient and level even when I wasn’t. The incredible thing was…He did all this while he was going through a transition himself at work. I would definitely recommend Brent to any of my friends or family.
