Customer Testimonials

Liberty Karp

Liberty Karp recommends Brent Palmer at The Palmer Team

I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with Brent on my recent home purchase! This is the second time I have worked with him, and he's offered great assistance every step of the way. The first time around, he helped me figure out my best options as a first-time home buyer. This time, he found great solutions to the dilemmas of trying to buy and sell at the same time. He's always incredibly responsive, checks in with me periodically, and makes himself super available to get things moving when it's "go time." I look forward to sharing his name with anyone in my life looking to buy a home...and while I hope to stay in my fantastic new place for a long time, if/when I find myself looking to buy in the future Brent will, without question, be the lender I reach out to. Thanks so much, Brent!!! I really appreciate all of the time and energy you have offered to help me get into the right home!!!
