I bought my first house with Brian! I say "with" because I would not be in my home without his standing with me. I would have worked with him even without all the extras that he provides. Quite simply, he gave me the best deal. But even more than that, he prepared me prior to ever finding the right house, he talked my worried father through all the paperwork, he supported all my "cold feet" moments, and we made it! Most important is that Brian has a very cool temperament in a situation that often feels like a roller coaster ride. The best way I can put it would be to say that he is a true professional. Separately, he helped guide friends of mine who had outside financing to understand their loans when they were confused by all the different aspects. A year later, he still lets me know if he thinks I may not be aware of something important as a first time home buyer, such as property taxes or an update on insurance. I wholeheartedly recommend Brian and will definitely team up with him again in the future.
My experience with Kama'aina Mortgage Group and working with Brian Bender was by far the smoothest, most time efficient Refinancing I have ever gone through. Brian was super patient and got me the rate I wanted even though that rate seemed unrealistic at the time and no points!!! Brian was incredibly knowledgeable about the mortgage business and he was so patient in answering all my questions in easy to understand language. Most of all Brian did not pressure me with phone calls saying “you better lock in today or else” instead he simply called me immediately when the rate dropped to where I had wanted it! It was a great pleasure to work with Brian and the entire Kama'aina Mortgage Group staff. They give such personal and customized service, way beyond a typical bank or mortgage company. I will go back to Brian for any mortgages I need in the future and have already recommended him to two of my closest friends looking to refi. I highly recommend Brian and Kama'aina Mortgage Group!
