My wife and I bought a home last month, and we had a new and COMPLICATED type of loan that required a seasoned, experienced loan officer. Julie made the entire process seamless and easy on our end. She is very responsive, detailed, and she took care of us like we were her only clients throughout the process. She answered all of our questions (and we had a lot) right away, and really held our hands throughout. Julie’s also hilarious and made the process fun. We couldn’t have done it without her and won’t use anyone else again! And after all she did, somehow WE ended up with a gift basket from her at closing.
For over 20 years and numerous home loans, Julie Brizzee has been my go to mortgage loan officer. Julie’s passion for her work makes her a real joy to work with, and her level of expertise gives me absolute confidence at every step of the process. Julie’s knowledge of the industry and its intricacies are obvious with every question I ask. She doesn’t just give me answers - she explains the pros, the cons, and all the options and then encourages me to make the best decision for me. Also, without question, Julie is the best communicator of any professional in any field that I have ever dealt with. Her responses to calls and emails are always nearly immediate. If she is going to be unavailable she communicates when and for how long. I have witnessed Julie go to practically superhuman efforts if that is what’s needed to make a transaction successful.
Thank you Julie, I want you to really understand what a difference this refi makes in our lives. It is the difference between keeping our house or selling it. Thank you for the Christmas miracle you are a sweetheart. I hope you get well soon.
When my clients and customers tell me they are going to their local bank to get a mortgage, I yell “STOP” ! You don’t know your loan officer, they won’t be there in a year, and your bank or credit union is also busy giving out car loans, boat loans, CD’S and checking accounts. You want a lender for life who will shop ALL banks for you to get the best rates at the lowest costs. That’s what Julie does, and she has a passion for her job and has fun doing it. Frankly, she’s pretty hilarious to work with but is a laser beam at burning out the best loans. She’s also honest enough to tell you a) she can’t help you; b) she will work with you for a year to get your credit scores up; c) that your loan you have is fine and don’t refinance it yet. When you’re making huge lifetime choices on your financial future you want a fighter.
