Our Loan Officers
Brian Tewes - President
Having been in the mortgage business for 27 years, Brian knows what’s most important to his clients. They want to know they’re getting the best deal and the best service from someone who cares. That’s why he loves his job – because meeting new people, helping them achieve their goals, and seeing their smiles at the closing table brings him joy. So what makes Brian different from a bank loan officer in a busy financial institution?
- Pride in getting to know his clients on a personal level
- Treating his clients like friends and staying in contact with them after the deal closes
- Giving his clients advice that benefits them – not him
- Being available 24/7 to answer questions/concerns/etc. Brian answers his phone, whether it be a client, a lender, a realtor…. He’s there for them.
- Having relationships with multiple lenders and loan products to get the best deal for clients.
- Using his accounting and financial background to maneuver through the complicated mortgage business on behalf of clients in order to create the optimal mortgage solution for them. He thoroughly understands the mortgage business, and has the resources necessary to finalize every deal.
Customer service is Brian’s strength, allowing him to guide clients through the loan process smoothly and truthfully. That’s why most of his new customers are referrals from previous clients. Please call Brian with any questions or for information and advice.
