About Bret Allen

Advice for New Home Buyers

Make sure you actually talk with your lender.

Quick, easy, and effective

“Working with Bret was a pleasure. Other lenders were difficult to work with because they didn't understand how to communicate with the VA for people that qualify for VA loans like me. Bret made it a breeze and was able to lower the rate on my existing loan quite a bit. All of this remotely while I was away. Thank you!”

“We've worked with Bret for two home purchases, and a refinance. He's always had competitive rates, and worked on our behalf to ensure we got the best rate and lowest fees in many ways, including shopping for inexpensive PMI, and telling us how to get our credit score increased enough to qualify for a lower rate. I've recommended him to everyone I know looking for home financing.”

“Bret made this process painless. I’ve heard horror stories about the loan process in general, and I can honestly say that Bret’s expertise made the borrowing experience the simplest piece of the home buying process (and I’m a first-timer!) I live in Denver where the market is fast-paced and Bret was available around the clock to help me be as competitive as possible. The closing process was excellently managed by Bret and his colleagues, and he stuck to the dates in our contract. Additionally, the closing costs were literally half what I was quoted by a local broker, and listing agents in my area had a great deal of respect for the bank. The interest rate was incredible, even with little money down. Bret is an all around great loan officer and I hope to tap his expertise for any and all future real estate transactions. Thanks, Bret!”

“Bret worked with us with our refinance and was absolutely the best! The whole process was easy and went through smoothly. He exceeded our expectations and worked with us throughout the whole process. Bret is very quick to respond to our questions. I’ll be recommending Bret to everyone looking for a loan.

“Once again, Bret was outstanding. This is my second time going with Bret, but on a refinance this time. Bret beat all the rates other lenders offered and walked me through the entire process. Will definitely use him again in the future. I highly recommend Bret to anyone purchasing or refinancing a home.”
