I needed to find a realtor who would be patient with some first-time homebuyers I knew and the first person I thought of was Brian Simantel. Even though I knew tons of other realtors from my time as a loan officer, I knew Brian would try to make the experience a positive one that they would remember. There are a lot of realtors out there but most of the ones I’ve dealt with focus too much on the sale and not enough on the whole “experience” of buying a home. You will always get superior treatment with Brian. Trust me!

You will love Brian!! My husband and I bought our home in March and Brian helped us every step of the way with our financing. I’m a realtor myself and he is the only person I would trust with my home loan….and I send all of my clients to him as well because I know he’ll give them great customer service; provide them with useful information and the best rate possible; and will get the deal done! I can’t stress enough how happy I’ve been with his service….and I’m a really, really picky customer!

Brian Simantel is the BEST!!!! I was the type of client you would not want during a home refinance. Everything that could go wrong DID, but Brian was very patient and gave me many different options. He provided GREAT customer service and kept me informed of the process every step of the way. Whenever I called he either answered the phone right away or called me right back. He was always pleasant and you could tell he loved what he did and cared about his clients. In the end I was able to get a GREAT rate on my home and I owe it all to Brian and his determination. If you need a realtor, Brian is your man!!! Thank you Brian for all your help!!!

Brian was responsible for getting me a great loan rate on my new home in CA. Since I was moving from out-of-state, the process was very different from my previous mortgage experiences, but he walked me through it every step of the way and patiently answered all of my questions. He called me back whenever I left messages and maintained email contact throughout. Consequently, I always felt informed and secure in the knowledge that Brian would take care of whatever needed to be done right away. He did, and thanks to him, I am now living a great life in my new home. If you’re looking for a professional, savvy mortgage broker who can humanize the process and close the deal, Brian’s your man.

To keep it short and sweet, Brian is knowledgeable, thorough, and quick to answer all questions most times of the day. I can be a bit of a demanding customer at times requesting information everyday all day, and Brian was always there to answer my emails. Loan options were clearly presented, logic behind options clearly translated to how it affects you, and the whole process is clearly communicated. I think I asked him for payment breakdowns on interest rates/loan amounts around 30 times and always had them within an hour or so no complaints from Brian. Would recommend Brian for sure. I used to work with brokers from the lender’s side, and he definitely would of been one of the good ones.

I would HIGHLY recommend Brian! When my lender couldn’t be reached on a Friday afternoon, Brian was there and saved my offer from being rejected. In the following weeks, Brian was on top of everything and kept me updated every step of the way. He was also always available, regardless of the day or late hour. I’ll definitely go with Brian on my next home loan as well!

Brian Simantel is the best mortgage broker in San Diego. I had several questions about a refi and he answered them for me, knowing that I would not be able to refi for a while. He was patient and understanding. As an insurance agent, I recommend him to all of my clients who are ready to purchase a new home.

Brian Simantel was our loan agent and he was awesome. He was always available to answer our questions and ease our worries. He was the calm in our storm and we couldn’t have gotten through the first time home buying process without him. We have nothing but praise for Brian and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Brian.

We bought our home in Sept 2010. Brian was so helpful!! As first time home buyers there is so much information to take in.. and regardless of the research… you always have questions. Brian was patient and answered all of them, thoroughly. We explained what we were looking for; he listened and delivered. He was always available and followed up on every detail possible. He has an excellent team and great resources. He worked with us every step of the way. Add his easygoing personality to all of this…, 5 stars, Woohoo! As good as it gets!

Brian is the best! My husband I bought our home in Azalea Park last August and Brian was able to secure a Home Path mortgage for us. We learned that Home Path mortgages are not easy to obtain. Brian was always accessible, prompt, and on top of the crazy paperwork that comes with buying a house. I highly recommend Brian to anyone who wants to buy a home.

Brian recently helped my husband and I refinance our home. He made the process extremely easy and straightforward and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Brian’s patience, humor, and easygoing personable nature were balanced with professionalism and sharpness for detail. He responded to any questions of ours promptly and completely, including a question that I asked him about property taxes after our refinance was complete. We would absolutely recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for a really solid, terrific person to assist with real estate and broker services.

Brian helped us refinace our condo in downtown San Diego, a huge challenge given that our HOA is in litigation with the developer over construction defect issues. Brian was the only broker out of the many we contacted who was able to find a lender willing to work with those issues, a direct result of his hard work, creativity and dedication. He was extremely professional, organized and attentive throughout the entire process.
