Get to know Brian Crist

The mortgage industry isn't more difficult, it's dramatically different. With a passion for teaching and counseling, I put my 20 years of mortgage industry knowledge to work for each client, finding the shortest path to reaching their financial goals. Sucessfully navigating the mortgage leding process requires more knowleldge and company strength than ever before. I am that guy. 

My brilliant kids, wife, and not so brilliant dog, Kato, keep me busy. I enjoy playing, repairing, and fiddling with all things guitar related. I do manage to fit in the occational backpacking trip (aka, keeping up with my boys), girls softball games (aka, boom! another triple), and time hanging out with wife.

Brian Crist Testimonials

  • C.K.

    We were just about to lose our house, We kept getting mail about us needing to send money to pay for an attorney to make it right. We never felt comfortable doing this and so we turned to you. You took the information we gave you and made it something we could understand and even use to our advantage. We refinanced our home and were able to keep it and live there still. Your knowledge, professionalism and friendly manner have made what could have been a black hole just a slight bump in the road. Thanks so much!

  • Jerry and Sue S.

    We love our new home!!! I know our income was sooo complicated. Thank you for your extra TLC getting our mortgage through on time.

  • Jim S.

    Who else would I recommend than my pal Brian? Nice job once again.

  • Sue and Herb H.

    Thank You Brian! We were very nervous about getting our first house. We had been close to buying before but something happened in the process and the deal fell apart. You made this whole process a breeze and we closed without anything going wrong. We are so happy to be in a home of our own now and just wanted to say Thank You.

  • Dave S.

    With new laws appearing almost daily and old ways of doing business disappearing almost daily, it is refreshing to know someone who can keep up and close loans with as few hiccups as possible. Thank You for your knowledge and for the way you handle business!

  • L.W.

    Thanks for getting us the right loan! We didn't want to be stuck in that FHA loan with that yuckie insurance and too many guidelines to even read. You got us a loan that met our standards and criteria and that probably wasn't very easy! We will trust all of our future home purchases to you!

20+ years, 2,500+ loans, with a passion for teaching, still a pretty interesting guy.
