Florida Mortgage Broker Reviews – Chris Brown

Chris Brown Florida Mortgage Broker Reviews

Sean McGettigan, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice, Read My Story Here

Chris and his team were simply amazing to work with when refinancing my mortgage through the HARP program. My refinance wasn’t an easy one either – 160% loan to value with LPMI through United Guaranty. Another “national lender” promised me the world and then dropped me when they saw that I had LPMI through United Guaranty. Chris and his team were extremely organized, very responsive, and made my refinance easy. They were able to help me reduce my payment by more than $400 per month and my interest rate went from 7.375% to 4%. I would highly recommend contacting Chris if you are looking to refinance through the HARP program – it was the best decision that I made.

Nikki Mazzella, Home buyer

If I could give 6 stars I would. In every aspect, Chris Brown and his team at Certified Mortgage Planners are beyond awesome. We just closed on our first home yesterday and I can tell you that the service and attention that we received was PHENOMENAL. I was referred to Chris by a friend and it was the best decision we could have made as first time home buyers. Chris and his team worked diligently to find us a loan that worked for us, at a great rate. They kept us up to date in each step of the process speaking with us constantly throughout until were setting at the table to close (the lady handling the closing even commented that the paperwork was flawless and that she “never” receives a packet put together so well, complete, and it arrived early for her review). Chris and his people really are a top notch team of professionals that will work with you and will get the job done with as little headache as I would imagine possible. It was a wonderful experience. Very much different that what we expected going in. Do yourself a huge favor and employ Chris and his team to work for you. You will be so happy that you did. They truly are the best!!

Chuck Vance, Home buyer

We are currently working with Chris and his team to buy our first home. Chris has been great at making sure we understand each step in the process. He has been patient in that regard and has made my wife and I very comfortable and confident in this journey. We needed that. Chris knows the mortgage business! He will be the guy we turn to in the future for our refinance and mortgage needs. I will be recommending Chris to everyone I know looking to buy a home. I, truly, can not say enough about Chris and the team. 5 Stars!

Matt Menard, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Best experience ever. Life changing. Very professional, great communication and an all around great guy. He knew all of the ins and outs of HARP and helped when other large lenders could not. He was always available for questions throughout the whole process. Even after we closed he still keeps in touch. You don’t find this kind of customer service anymore. I don’t write reviews and was compelled to share.

Jen WilsonJen Wilson, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris and his team really went above and beyond for our refi. We hit a few personal snags along the way, and they went the extra mile to get everything worked out and our closing moved up so could get to end product before the end of the year!

Eric Gomez, New Home Owner

Chris Brown and his team were very helpful with purchasing my 2nd home in Florida. I highly recommend his services.

 

Keith Streger, Real Estate Investor

Working with Chris and his team was one of the most easiest and smoothest real estate experiences I’ve ever had. From beginning to end, Chris was professional, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Not only was he able to get the best rate possible for me for my refinance, but was able to negotiate a lower rate for me when the time came. Always attentive to my real estate goals, Chris kept in great communication with me the whole time. Smooth sailing! Highly recommend. Thanks Chris and team.

Matt Bendell, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

After learning about HARP and the length of time whole the process could take, I was not looking forward to the hassle of going through all the hoops required. But all of that changed with the help of Chris Brown and his team at Certified Mortgage Planners. With Chris’ help, we were on a fast track to savings from the very beginning (in fact, we closed in less than two months). Chris and his team were great in explaining things every step of the way. We couldn’t be happier with the results and will certainly recommend Chris and his team to anyone in the market for a mortgage or refinance.

<a href=RAFAEL MARTINEZ, Realtor And Client

I’ve known Chris for several years. He has helped many of my clients when no one else could. I have even used him on my own personal properties. He is conscientious, trustworthy and very efficient. His team members are great to work with. He is definitely the Go To Guy for Harp. He is the best.

<a href=Marian Marrero, New Homeowner

Chris and his team really are hardworking certified mortgage planners. and always make it comfortable when questions arise and they are prompt to answer. I definitely Recommend Him! Professional, friendly and helpful… thanks to their Team we were able to own our first home.

Nick GarrickNick Garrick, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Worked with the Chris Brown and his Team to help refinance my house here in the Ft. Lauderdale area. He and his staff were very professional and helpful: answering all of the questions in a timely manner and leading me the right course for the refinancing. I am very happy with the final results and would highly recommend Chris Brown to anyone who is interested in refinancing, or has any other questions regarding their house situation here in the state of Florida!!

Jamie KogutekJamie Kogutek, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris and his team helped me refi via the HARP program. All of my many questions were answered, I was given options and updates throughout the process, and I got the results that I expected. I would recommend Chris and his team to anyone needing a mortgage broker.

Myra WoodMyra Wood, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris helped my husband and I with our refinance this year. I found Chris to be so patient and kind in guiding us through the process. I can not say enough great things about my experience with him. Thanks Chris!

Alex ChaversAlex Chavers, New Homeowner

My experience with Chris Brown and his team was fantastic. I felt very comfortable as a first time home buyer as Chris would answer any questions that I had. Definitely Highly recommend.

Carol Bennett-MasciaCarol Bennet, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

We recently refianced our mortgage with Chris Brown via a Harp 2 loan process. He was professional and knowledgeable with every step of the process. His rates were very competitive and each member of his team were outstanding. Because of he and his teams efforts, we are saving close to $600 a month! We highly recommend the “Chris Brown Team” for your mortgage financing.

Lisa DonohueLisa Donohue , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris is friendly and professional. He is honest and doesn’t promise what he cannot deliver. It was a pleasure to work with him and his team. We achieved our goal of a refinance with Chris and his team after years of frustration with the bank. Do yourself a favor and go with Certified Mortgage Planners.

Tim and Amy Hetz

My wife and I are first time home buyers, and we were blessed to be referred to Chris Brown as our mortgage planner. He had a great team (thanks Julie) working around the clock to find us the best home lender, and financing. We had alot of questions for Chris, since this was our first ‘big’ purchase, and he was graciously eager and willing to answer all of our questions and concerns. He had so much knowledge of how everything works, but he explained the home buying process in a simple way, without confusing my wife and I with all the fancy home buying ‘jargon’ that we wouldn’t understand anyway. I would highly recommend Chris Brown and his team to help you with your first home purchase.

Ben Glover, helped improve mortgage terms

I cannot describe in full detail how great Chris was in the loan process. He is very friendly and thoughtful to the needs of His clients. I have high expectations for customer service and they were exceeded by Chris. I am thankful that we were able to work together and for my friend who recommended him to me. Quality and exceptional service define Chris Brown.

 

John and Jackie Kennedy, helped buy a home

From start to finish, Chris Brown and the rest of the team were on top of it! They informed us throughout the whole process with a once a week update…and even if there was no news to report, it was nice to hear from them. They walked us through the mortgage process and they were always available to answer any questions we had. Such a great team of people to work with and I would highly recommend their services!!

Ben Salehi

What you read about him in is all true. Chris advised me against his own interest to not refinance my house. Honest business man is hard to find these days. I highly recommend this guy. Thank you

Frantz and Joceline Cadet, helped buy a home

Our dealing with Chris and his team was outstanding. From the beginning he let us know all our options and explained them in a manner very easy to understand. Chris provided an update every Tuesday letting us know what was needed and where we were in the process. We highly recommend Chris and his team to anyone looking for a lender.

Mark Stewart

They were able to take a very complicated situation of mine and make it a smooth transaction. Cherie did more for me than I ever imagined someone would. I could not have done it without her and the rest of the team has a great sense of humor, lightheartedness mixed with outstanding professionalism. They deserve an A+++++

hank

The Chris Brown team was attentive, thorough, professional and did a great job for us! Our loan was processed expeditiously and made easy at our end. We appreciate it!

 

Stuart Brannon

It was a good overall experience and they were on top of things. Almost the entire time.
I received assistance from Chris more than once on off hours.

David Reed, helped buy a home

The most difficult part in buying my home was filtering the overwhelming amount of information into something understandable and useful. As a lender, Chris and his team were available and communicative through every step making the process far less stressful. My financial options were clear and effectively communicated in the ways I needed.

I was never wasting time pouring through mountains of nebulous paperwork without a guide or left without someone to answer a question. Further, their pre-approval process was fundamental in helping me narrow down the scope of my search for a house that was within my budget.

Rudy and Shannon Gevero – helped them buy a home

Words cannot describe my experience with Chris and team. They were on top of everything from day one all the way to close date. Everyone’s very professional and they take pride of what they do. I personally want to thank Chris for his hard work and dedication to his customers. Thanks again Chris!

Lauren Garrido

Chris and his team made the home-buying process super easy and we couldn’t be happier with our experience with them!
We always appreciated Chris’ “Weekly Update” and the fact that he took time out of his busy schedule to come to our closing meant a lot to both of us. If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable, and caring mortgage team, look no further! Chris and his team are THE BEST!

Donna Cox, Realtor

As Realtors, representing our buyers well is very important to us. When our buyers found the home they wanted, the listing agent required that they be pre-approved by his loan officer who happened to be Chris Brown. Once our buyers interacted with Chris, they decided to switch from their previously chosen loan officer/lender to go with Chris and his team from CMPFL. We felt that was an excellent decision. Chris personally made a call once a week to give us a status update. Everyone on the team was very professional and constantly available to attend to all of the buyers’ needs and answer all of their questions.

TJ and Karen James, Helped buy a home

We would strongly encourage anyone looking to purchase a home to contact Chris Brown and the CMP team. Chris was willing to answer questions, review documents, and share advice BEFORE we made the decision to work with him. We were impressed that ‘educating’ us was more of a priority for Chris then securing a new client. In fact, at one point, when we thought it would be necessary to use the “builder approved” mortgage company, Chris unselfishly referred us to a competitor. Fortunately we were able to make Chris Brown ‘our mortgage guy’ and haven’t been disappointed. We truly appreciate his accessibility, his knowledge of the industry and the maze of paperwork and procedures. We have found him to be a man of integrity and honest to a fault. Chris definitely puts the client first!

Kristy Stevenson

Chris Brown kept in constant communication with me throughout the entire process. He always went that extra mile to make sure we were happy with how things were going and taking his time going through all the options for the loan to find the one that would serve us best, always keeping our best interests in mind! Chris Brown & team always listened to every question & concern I had and immediately acted to give me concise answers. His honesty and willingness to go the extra mile for my family and always having our best interests at heart is something I have never experienced with a lender before. Would highly recommend!

Kumar Ananth – helped buy a home

In looking for a trustworthy mortgage advisor, I visited Trulia and Zillow to check the reviews of different mortgage people. It was important to me that they were local (had a 407 area code for Orlando) and had plenty of folks happy enough to share their experience. That is how I found Chris and his team… and is why I have come back to give him my Raving Fan review as well. He even connected me with a Realtor he trusted. We used them as well and couldn’t be happier.

Fred Rueda

Great experience and will work with Chris Brown in the future in Florida. He was recommended to me via a Realtor in California. I have already recommended his company to a friend of mine and I am very sure he will complete his mortgage just like he did for me.

Pete and Gloria Livadas

We had our doubts going in, as Chris Brown is in Central Florida and we’re in South Florida; however, Chris showed himself to be a great listener, was responsive to our concerns, and put us at ease. Chris is an expert, a true professional, and a joy to work with!

 

Cindy Neylon

I was referred to Chris by a friend who is also a real estate agent. I was extremely impressed by how professional Chris handled my situation. While he continued to follow up on whether my situation was resolved, the whole time had nothing but my best interest at heart. All the while, with nothing in it for him except his integrity. I was happy to have had his help and very pleased with his advice. We need more people out there like him doing the great job he does!! :)

Andy Watson

Chris made the whole process easy. Him and his team worked well to keep us updated and informed on what was still ahead. I would highly recommend Chris and his team to anyone looking to purchase a home.

 

Jenny Watson

Chris Brown and his team are awesome! We were introduced to Chris by our realtor as someone that he trusted and was certain would take care of us, He was right! Not one time did I feel like just another deal, we were kept informed of what was happening what would happen and even what could happen. We feel very fortunate to have The Chris Brown team on our side and will definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.

 

Ken Nagengast

The most thorough and responsive mortgage team I have ever been associated with (this is my 6th mortgage). Chris Brown and his team who worked diligently to close my loan in record time. I highly recommend Chris, you will be very satisfied with the results.

Nancy Paul

We have been very pleased with Chris and his company. While it took some time for the refinance, he was very thorough and helped negotiate better terms where necessary and kept us informed about everything in a timely manner. Anytime we needed to call him he was either readily available or returned calls very promptly. We could not have completed our successful HARP2 refinance without his able assistance. If you need mortgage assistance, please call Chris.

Brad Shepherd

Chris and his team were professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. During the process of collecting documents I had trouble finding my owner’s title. Somehow they must have sensed this as they looked it up and sent a copy to me! Ultimately my plan to refinance did not work out. With interest rates creeping up Chris actually advised me that it was in my best interests to follow up on a slightly lower rate that my bank was offering. Even though you may have found Chris Brown and his team via a Google search, they are trustworthy, professional and they deliver a high quality service.

Joe Raposa, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Recently refinanced a prpoerty in Florida under the HARP program. Chris and his team did an outstanding job at processing the loan,keeping me updated and making the process as painless as possible

Shannon and Rudy Gevero , Home Buyer

A few weeks ago, I contacted Chris Brown on a Saturday morning about an urgent mortgage situation. Shortly after, he was in touch with me with detailed information that relieved our nerves for the time being. I was incredibly pleased that he took time out from his weekend to answer our questions. We met with him a few days later and again he was very clear and thorough in explaining the variances in loan situations. It is very comforting to know that we are working with someone who has our best interest at heart. We appreciate his thoroughness in explaining the details of the loan situation with us, as it can be very overwhelming at times.

Nadine Ed Bolton Real Estate Investor

He was able to get job done on a refinance when others failed.

 

Shai Neumann Real Estate Investor

I can state without hesitation that Chris and his team made the difference. Refinancing is not an easy process, one that requires coordination and skills. Chris demonstrated the highest level in all aspects of this business, and I would highly recommend him to any of my friends.
Thank you Chris!

Shannon Gevero, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

From the very beginning of the refinance process, Chris was there for us. He led us through each step of the process and was there in an instant to address any of our questions. His team was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgable. We are thrilled with the end result, as we are saving $500/mo and would most definitely recommend Chris to others.

Mario Pineda , New Homeowner

I have used Chris to purchase a home and refinance the same home 10 months later. I have nothing but good things to say about the process and all my needs were met in a complete and timely fashion.

Dennis Leriche , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Absolutely a wonderful experience after being turned down by my original bank (Chase) Chris and his team was more then happy to assist me refinance my home and at a rate that was +2% less then my current loan. The communication throughout the entire process was impeccable and really made the refinance a pleasureable experience. Thanks Chris and team.

Sheila Fornoles , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris was fantastic in helping me secure a HARP loan which reduced my interest rate over 3%. He made the process easy and simple – definitely exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend anyone to Chris for assistance in their mortgage needs!

Ken Mengel, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Working with Chris was a great experience. He knows the business well and was very helpful. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone needing a home loan or refinance.

Kevin Brock, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

great service. Prompt and professional team.

 

Dr. Sanjay Sastry, New Homeowner

Good service. Helpful

 

Haley Crum, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Certified Mortgage Planners helped me out a great deal with an extremely difficult HARP refinance for my condo. Everyone on the team was especially friendly, knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

I personally dealt with Chris Brown and Lori Dickinson and they were terrific to work with. They made the whole process really easy to work through and allowed me to continue to focus on more important day to day items.

I want to work with the best team in the industry and that’s exactly what I got. I seek to work with companies that offer great customer service, and who genuinely love what they do.

Eric Melanson, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris is a pro at what he does. He and his team are very organized, knowledgeable and great at followup. After a frustrating experience with a large national mortgage company, I found Chris’s info and contacted him. He handled our HARP refinance very well, and we are happy with the outcome. Give him a call if you need a mortgage.

Mike Wilkes, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

My experience with The Chris Brown Team of professionals was perhaps the most gratifying real estate experience of my life. Their experience and knowledge of the HARP refinance process is without equal, as far as I am aware, and although it was a lengthy and sometimes tedious experience, it ultimately resulted in a refinance at more than 2% below the rate of our present mortgage, accruing a savings of nearly $500 per month. There is no one I would recommend higher than Chris for help to anyone struggling with a high interest rate underwater mortgage. If it can be done, Chris and his team can be relied on to do it, and in a way that always keeps your best interests in sight.

Aaron Miller, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris and his team have just helped us close on our mortgage. He is hands down the most knowledgeable real estate professional I have ever dealt with. Chris and his team are a no nonsense operation with a very helpful attitude. I would highly recommend Chris and his team to anyone looking for a mortgage, and want to feel ensured they are dealing with a reputable, knowledgeable broker, not just another ‘rep’ looking to make a buck.

Pete Yurista, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris Brown and his team made it happen for me! I had a HARP 2.0 refi on a home in FL where my LTV was outside the limits of everyone else I spoke with. I went from a 6.625% rate to 4.25% and saved over $400 a month on my monthly payment. Plus, super friendly, great communication and always positive.Thanks!

Jennie And Bob Grose, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Just recently, we closed on a re-finance for a property that we have in Florida that we thought no one would touch because of the high LTV. Since we are people that do not walk away from our obligations, we tried diligently to re-finance under the HARP 2 guidelines with many lenders, but Chris Brown and his team were the only ones that went the distance for us and got it done. We would recommend them to anyone because they are a top notch team and will go the extra mile to take care of you. At closing, we received a well organized binder with all documents in order for our records. The best thing we liked about dealing with Chris was that he was just a phone call away when we needed a question answered, and he offered his expertise in making decisions in the re-finance process. Since talking to an actual person nowadays is very rare, this was very reassuring. By being available to talk to us personally, he repeatedly showed that he truly cared about the outcome. We cannot say enough good about Chris and his team and would highly recommend them.

Kristine Quintana, Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

My husband and I are extremely thrilled with Chris Brown and his team. They navigated us through the refinancing process with professionalism and dedication. They made it painless. I would recommend them to anyone.

J Robert Brown, Realtor And Client

Chris consistently exceeds expectations with customers that I, a real estate broker, send his way. He takes initiative and uses video chats with customers to keep them informed on the status of their loan on a regular basis and to educate them on the process and what to expect. He follows through after the loan is closed and refers back to the real estate agent that helped them. A real professional that I am comfortable recommending to anyone that has a mortgage need. Reflects very well on the mortgage industry and sets a standard for service and ethics by which other mortgage professionals should be measured.

Bill Whitlow , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

We refinanced through Chris and his team for the HARP program. It took awhile, but was well worth it. Good communications keeping us appraised of how the paperwork was going. Great interest rate will save us over three hundred a month on our mortgage payment, plus what we will save in interest over the years. Thank you so much.

Michael and Maria Bryan , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Before I found Chris Brown and his team I was forced to go with the bank that had my original mortgage. Bank of America (BOA) knew they had me over a barrel and gave me an outrageous rate with a large amount added to my loan for the refinance. My wife and I have amazing credit and had never missed a mortgage payment. The interest rate that Chris found for my family and I was what we deserved. Not only were the conditions of the new loan better Chris and his team were much easier to work with. BOA pulled good cop bad cop on me constantly. Trying to pull out more and more fees. Chris and his team were respectful, honest, timely. and professional. I would recommend his services to anyone refinancing their home. Thank you Chris for your hard work and dedication to my family and I.

David Peacock, Home Buyer

Mostly good experience, unfortunately we locked in during a very volatile time for rates so floating strategy didn’t work, but we managed it before taking a huge hit. The Chris Brown Team found a way to cut our closing costs significantly and we ended up happy and love our new home!

Desmond Baxter, Helped them buy a home

They were very professional, helpful, throughout the whole process, they had my best interest at heart, I strongly recommend them. Thanks Mr.Brown getting my family in a beautiful home, I will never forget.

 Walt and Patti McBride

We are very thankful for the opportunity to work with Chris Brown. He has been very professional and helpful as we searched for a home that would be right for us.

The team processed our paperwork very efficiently and everything went smoothly. Thank you Chris, it was a pleasure working with you!!

Shaun Gyger

Chris Brown and his team at Certified Mortgage Planners have been amazing! My husband and I purchased our first home and we had no idea that everything would have been so smooth. We had lots of question and the Chris Brown Team were very knowledgeable and professional. My husband and I would highly recommend and will be recommending them to all of our friends and family. We just can say thank you enough to the Chris Brown Team for making our dream a reality.

Barry and Mindy Barenfanger, Helped buy a home

Chris and his team did an outstanding job and provided impeccable service! Chris represented our family as we made a move from Indiana to Florida with our six children. Moving this distance, with children, and purchasing a new home could have been a stressful and monumental task. Chris and his team were able to provide tremendous counseling and advice while working on our behalf and, at the same time, make this transition as stress-free as possible. Thank you so much Chris!

Doug and Lahana Vigliano

Hands down the BEST decision to work with Chris & his associates. They are amazing & helpful during one of biggest decisions you can make. We bought our first home and I have always heard buying your first home was stressful. We learned how true it was as we worked with the best! Chris was always there if you had questions or concerns. We knew we were in the best hands. I’m so thankful that we chose Chris & his team to help us out. My husband & I also do Dave Ramsey for finances and it was reassuring knowing that Chris was familiar with what we were trying to accomplish and help support us. Everything worked out so smoothly & I would highly HIGHLY recommend Chris & his team!!

Bill and Candace Genest, helped them buy a home

Chris, Aime, and Dee are a great team, and helped us through our entire home purchase process. They were quick to respond to questions and provided us the right amount of communication. They go the extra step to ensure your comfortable and confident in a usually stressful process. Thank you Chris, Aime and Dee for everything!

Jim and Tammie Tessier, helped them buy a new home

CMP Team, I just want to thank the whole team for making buying a second home easy as possible!! I couldn’t ask for the process to go any smoother and want to thank you all for your professionalism!! Once again thank you!! Jim and Tammie… By the way record COLD high yesterday!!! 48 in Boston!!

Sam Vorhies, helped them buy a home
When initially searching for a mortgage broker I counted on others feedback and testimony and immedietly noticed that Chris Brown and his team reviews were all five star. I read at least 30 reviews and felt strongly that Chris Brown was the right choice. My home loan closed swift and uneventful, his team updates clients with a Tuesday update and was always quick in responding to questions. Thank you Chris Brown and his wonderful team of professionals for a job well done!
Shaun Gyger, helped them buy a home
Chris and his team made it very easy to get all our required paperwork in order because of their organization, follow-up, punctuality and personalized service. By doing so and having us pre-approved we landed the home we wanted with a lower than asking price offer while at least 2 other parties made a full-price offer! Thanks Chris!

Ryan and Anne Mansfield, helped them buy a home
We came to Chris’ team with a fairly quick turn around time to secure our mortgage and they delivered! They are both the friendly and trustworthy people you would want to work with and the affordable price to help your wallet! Highly recommend! This was our first home and I am so thankful everything went smooth with the financing thanks to Chris and his team!

Biff and Rose Nugent, helped them buy a home

Chris and his Team were able to expedite a quick closing on our new home the day after we closed on the sale of our prior home. I recommend the Chris Brown Team for performing a job well done under pressure and strict time constraints.

David Hall, gave sound mortgage advice

Chris brown is very helpful. He keeps in touch with you every step of the process. I am not purchasing a house anymore due to my credit/debt but I will be seeing him in less than a year to reapply. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house. Thank you Chris!

Jimmy Pereira, helped them buy a home

Chris Brown and his team have perfected the way mortgage lending is done. He’s straightforward, honest, and personable. He keeps you up to date every step of the process and I can tell you from personal experience- him and his team work like a well oiled machine. No headaches, no worries, and a closing that was better than expected.

Mark and Jan Stewart, helped them buy their ‘beach home’.

Chris is extremely capable and strategic when it comes to getting a loan at the best rate. He was quicker than we planned. Love working with him and his team. High energy and very thorough. I have now used him for loans on two houses and can’t recommend him highly enough.

Ulgonda Kirkpatrick, gave her sound advice to sit tight for the time being.

He was so nice and helpful! Great discussion and advice. He called me right away and answered all of my questions. I never felt rushed and he spent a good deal of time explaining my options. Thanks so very much Chris!!!

James and Christina Savino, helped them buy a home

Chris embodies the phrase, “grace under pressure,” pulling through with amazing knowledge and attention to detail. I strongly recommend Chris for all your financial needs.

Chris and his staff had a lot of knowledge and information to share on the loan selection process and they kept on the ball to make sure that the closing happened in a timely manner!

Thanks to Chris and his team We have stayed on track to close on the contract’s closing date. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Chris came up with different strategies to help us stay on budget. Because of Chris and the respectable relationships he holds with many people in this industry, We had so many options that catered to our specific needs. From lenders, to insurance you name it.

Jasmin and Michael Funnye, helped them buy a home

When I think of Chris Brown and his team, 3 P’s come to mind: Patience, Persistence, and Passion! Each and everyone on of them were patient, and answered all the many questions we had in going through the process; they were persistent in finding the best financial deal for us in order to achieve our home buying goals; and their passion for helping families achieve that American dream of becoming a homeowner was well recognized! You will not regret working w/ this outstanding group of people. I give my highest recommendation to the Chris Brown team!!

Jerry Wu, Helping him buy a home

Chris has been very helpful considering my circumstances when I reached out him. Unfortunately my path to standard mortgage is not a easy one, Chris did very good job explaining me what is stopping me moving forward very clear, and offered me his advise for short-term. I appreciate his honesty even though it does not bring him the business, but I will definitely come back someday when I can move the mortgage forward again.

Jacqui and Victor Collazo, Helped them improve their mortgage situation

We are so pleased to have been referred to Chris and his staff at Certified Mortgage Planners! We had been trying for months to get our mortgage refinanced with other agencies and none would take the time to work through some of the issues we were having. Chris went above and beyond to make it happen and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! He and his staff were kind, patient, honest, and dedicated to making sure we had all our questions answered throughout the entire process. Do not hesitate to contact him if you need a mortgage…you won’t regret it!

Matt DiSalvatore, helped with refinancing advice. Advised to sit tight.

Chris gave me advice on refinancing. He was very knowledgeable but didn’t talk over my head. He was able to explain in simple terms what my options were. He didn’t make the decision for me, but told me what the pros and cons were and then lead me to where I needed to be. Very honest and cared about helping me. I highly recommend Chris.

James and Rhonda Bridenthal, helped them buy a home

Chris and his team were wonderful to work with. They answered all our questions and made sure we had updated info on how things were going through the entire process. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Michele Pirozek, helped her buy a home

Chris was so very helpful starting just moments after I first sent a request for information from him on Zillow’s website. He offered reassurance when I was outbid on what I thought was my dream home and was quick to answer any ridiculous questions and concerns I had. Additionally, his team is amazing, especially Aime, who was always quick to respond to my questions. As a single first-time home buyer, the Chris Brown Team and Certified Mortgage Planners have been amazing and I highly recommend them!

Denny and Michelle Racket, helped them buy a home

Finally after 2 years of ups and downs on purchasing our Dream Home Chris and his team closed our deal yesterday without any delays. His company was definitely top of the line and called every Tuesday with up dates right through closing. I’m not sure this could have gone any smooth. I want to thank Chris and his team for the great job that they did.

Michelle, helped her buy a new home.

Chris and his team went above and beyond to ensure this was a smooth process. They were available at anytime to answer questions and guide us. They exceeded our expectations and I wouldn’t recommend using anyone else.

Kelly and Louie Loper, helped them buy a home

I was very impressed with the Chris Brown Team, who came recommended to me by our Real Estate Agent. Selecting & financing a house is a very complicated transaction. Never once have I felt alone in this process. I truly feel as if I have an “entourage” at my disposal. Phone calls, emails & texts are answered in a timely manner, even when they are irrelevant to the actual financial area. A recommendation or “point in the right direction” is always offered. Dissecting my credit record was the potentially stressful part for me. Chris and his team walked me through it step by step, always making me feel my worth as a Powerful Home-buyer. (Honorable mention to Renee on his team!)

Kat Hopkins, helped her buy a home.

Chris Brown has been absolutely wonderful to work with! I cannot even put into words how thankful I am that we chose him to help us through the entire process of buying our first home. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, yet easy to talk to and personable. He goes above and beyond to make your experience as carefree as possible. Chris Brown is an extremely dedicated individual who I would highly recommend to family and friends for any of their home buying needs!

Tim and Amy Hetz, helped them buy a new home

We have had the great pleasure of working with Chris and his team not just once but twice in the purchase of our homes. They helped with everything from the pre-approval process of obtaining a loan to recommending an amazing realtor to the final approval process of our loan. They worked meticulously with our underwriting and our agent throughout the entire process to help keep the entire process running smooth and efficiently. We can’t say enough about how great him and his team all work together. We were always kept in the loop on everything and they were always available whenever we had questions or concerns. They don’t only care about the business portion of things but have a true and sincere regard for helping people and looking out for their best interest. We have been truly blessed to have had such an amazing group of people guide us every step of the way. It was a bit scary when we decided to sell our house and at the same time look to purchase a new one that would be more suitable for our extended family(new baby and mother in law included) but Chris always had faith it would all work out and always reassured us when we got a bit nervous. He and his team have definately been an answer to prayer. We will now be closing on both properties shortly thanks in great part to Chris and his team which include Aimee Reudlinger who is phenomenal! She was always immediate with her responses and extremely well organized! If one day we decide to purchase property again there is no doubt we will use Chris and his team again!

John Negley, helped him buy his dream home

Chris and his team were fantastic. We will be moving into the home of our dreams with very little stress. He guided us through the process with ease and simplified what we thought would be a difficult journey. We can not thank him enough.


Amy Cairo
, gave advice to wait on a purchase

I contacted Chris Brown because he had the best ratings and reviews on Zillow and I was not disappointed by his excellent customer service and amiable personality. Although my husband and I decided to postpone our home-buying for the moment, I can’t wait to work with Chris in the near future since he has demonstrated a genuine concern and attention to detail in only the few interactions we have had. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to Chris Brown to anyone interested in a mortgage broker with a personal touch.


John and Liz Herren
, helped them buy a home.

As a first-time home owner, I approached the mortgage process full of fear, anxiety, doubt, and frequent indigestion. I was convinced I’d never be a home owner. My credit was less than stellar. I hadn’t saved as much as I wanted for down payment. I’d never have time to go through the process. I was going to be taken advantage of. Then, through a mutual friend, I met Chris Brown. Chris is the Bob Ross of mortgage planning. Like everyones’ masterful and gentle and almost magical television fine art painting instructor, Chris was able to break down the mortgage process in a way that a toddler could follow along, if toddlers were allowed to enter contractual agreements. Every detail of the mortgage became wistful stokes from Chris’s brush, expertly and patiently explained, and never demeaning. Title insurance? HOA estoppel? Wind mitigation report? All of these became happy little clouds, happy little trees, a happy little babbling brook. And from the combination of the numerous forms and disclosures, these dainty pushes of paint around palette and canvas, from the constant reassurance and guidance through the journey, a masterpiece; a successful and on-time closing. A cross-state move and a family overjoyed at their new home. To Chris, another exercise in perfection and another chef-d’oeuvre for his gallery. To us not trained in the craft, this process is indistinguishable from magic. As Bob Ross brushes intuitively with the muscle memory of a million brush strokes, so does Chris optimize every aspect of a mortgage: costs, rates, and premiums. Every mortgage a unique, special, and personally tailored creation. When working with Chris it was clear I was in the presence of a master; someone who loves his craft.


Carlos Aponte
– helped them buy a home

Chris and his team not only provided us with a smooth transaction, but were there with us every step of the way. Chris always answered our questions in a very timely manner, and even did weekly updates just to keep us informed of how the process was going. I would highly recommend Chris and his team any day.


Joe Masalsky
– helped them buy a home.

Chris and team have been great partners with us during our home buying experience. We had so much to deal with between selling our previous house and buying the new one and we really appreciated all the leg work the team put in on our behalf. We knew everything would be taken care of in a thoughtful manner. We ended up with a mortgage that met our needs and everything was communicated to us so that we understood and didn’t have to have any stress over it. We appreciated all of their hard work and I highly recommend them to anyone that is purchasing a home in Central Florida!


Charlene Johnson
, Helped them buy a home.

I cannot say enough great things about Chris Brown and his team!!!! After a few years of financial trouble, I was finally ready to purchase a home. Not only did Chris help me navigate through the purchase process, he was extremely patient and knowledgeable regarding my financial situation. I was able to buy the home of my dreams thanks to Chris and all his hard work. The Chris Brown team is compiled of the most professional and friendly people I have encountered in this entire process. If you are reading this review…PLEASE look no further. You have found the professional who will leave you feeling cared for and in perfectly capable hands.

Eric Melanson

3 years ago, Chris and his team did a bang up job of getting us a great refinance of our vacation home in New Smyrna Beach. With the prospect of declining rates, I asked Chris if another refinance would make sense. His answer: not really. In choosing the right mortgage broker, honesty and practicality is key. While Chris could inevitably do a transaction and make a fee, his honesty shows he will do what’s right for the client every time. You can’t get better than that in the mortgage business. Eric Melanson


Anthony Mancino

I have been working with Chris on a refinance and he is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and is very good at walking me through the process. His follow up is amazing and he is a pleasure to work with. My experience with him and his team have been top notch. I have been referring anybody I know to him as I know he will give the same experience for them. Thanks Chris!

Jim Rosenblum

Chris Brown and his staff are friendly, prompt, and thorough. They are particularly helpful in recommending vendors for insurance, appraisal, inspection, and other services, and in coordinating the real estate purchase process.

Jeffrey Hill, Helped him with good sound mortgage advice

Although Chris was not able to assist me with my unique circumstances, thats not his fault. In my dealings with Chris he was very professional, courteous and helpful by referring me to somebody else. Chris was very prompt in responding to my enquiry and was easy to get in touch with over the phone and via email. I would definately recommend Chris to anybody looking forMortgage services.

In February 2016, my wife and I started planning to purchase our first home. I started calling around trying to get information on the pre-approval process, since i knew extremely little (nothing) about the home buying process. I spoke with the mortgage lenders from a couple big name banks, thinking that they would have the best interest rates. When I could manage to get ahold of someone on the phone, I was rushed through my questions and did not feel confident about the answers I was receiving. After a week of unreturned phone calls, I was ready to stay in our apartment for another year. That is when our realtor connected us with Chris Brown and his team. He promptly returned all calls/texts/emails, had an extensively knowledgeable answer for every question, and gave me the feeling that he genuinely cared. I felt that he sincerely cared that we found the right home, the right mortgage plan for us, and that we were going to be in a state of financial well being down the road within the mortgage. Overall, Chris and his team made the home buying process as simple as possible for my wife and I. I was even able to gather all the information and documents needed while I was working out of town. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a home. Thanks Chris!

Joann

I started this journey at the beginning of the month with an out of state lender and after feeling extremely frustrated, started a search and found Chris Brown. I am sorry I was not able to locate Chris sooner, as I am sure I would have already closed by now. The other lender was good at the initial contact, and my gut feeling told me this wasn’t a good fit after the 2nd phone call. Unfortunately, I was right. So far, the Chris Brown team has been wonderful. Tony has been responsive and has listened to what I need. I wanted to forget this whole thing, but my confidence has been restored and hope this refi is quick and painless as they can be.”

Caitlin a marshall

Chris and his team were incredibly helpful and patient while we purchased our first home. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about the process. Anne and Chris went above and beyond for us and really made us feel comfortable with the process. Would absolutely work with them again!

Julie

Chris and his team made my mortgage experience as pain-free as humanly possible. They were proactive about communicating with me and my agent, and provided personal weekly updates throughout the process. Moreover, Chris spent a great deal of time with me at the beginning of the process to understand my needs and provide sage advice about bringing a winning offer on my dream home. I followed his advice and was able to beat out seven competing offers while still paying a very fair price! I have nothing but positive things to say about Chris, Anne, and the rest of the team. I took a gamble finding my mortgage broker through Zillow, and I’m glad I did!

zuser20160813114412993

The Chris Brown team was great to work with. Refreshing to work with a team that genuinely care about clients. They kept me in the “know” and we’re willing to share sound advice with info to back it up.

 user1447296

In comparing Chris Brown’s Team’s service levels and the personalization of my individual experience to my past home buying experiences, this organization is by far the best I’ve seen in the industry. Quality customer service and the ability to care for each client individually is a lost art in today’s society, so when I come across it, i embrace it. My closing date is in April. However, so far so extremely good! Thank you Chris Brown and Team, especially for making me feel like I am your only (or most important) client through out my entire journey to date

 

user50501899

Chris Brown and his team made our dream of buying a home come true. Working with Chris makes you feel as though you are the only client he has. They quickly responsed to our texts/emails and always answered our questions thoroughly. We appreciated his prompt communication, especially his weekly updates. Chris made a very stressful process seem so easy. For that we thank and highly recommend him.

zuser20150223104858119

Certified mortgage planners were great to work with. Exceeded all our expextions. Would highly recommend working with Chris and his team when looking to buy a house!

Chris and his team were wonderful! They made us feel comfortable and the process was virtually as painless as buying a home gets! I highly recommend them.

Everything the average person doesn’t care to know about mortgages, Chris does! Very knowledgeable and informative. Suggested a VA option when I didn’t know that was available. Turned out it was my best option! His team will get it done. Thanks Chris and team! Sal

 It’s a wonderful feeling to say New home owner never thought that this day would come. Want to say thank you to Chris Brown and his team to make this happen for us. Mr. Brown was always there to answer our question if not he will have Tony one of is team member to contact us and answer any question we have they were there every step of the way. Me and my husband never felt alone especially we never purchase a home it could be scary but Chris Brown and his team was there for us to make it as smooth as possible for us they took off the stress from us. I want to thank Chris personally for going out of his way and fought for us to make the least amount of pay for our closing cost. Thank you Chris!!!

fallanshields

The entire team works collaboratively and efficiently to ensure communication is seemless, thorough and never left wondering where things are at. Always open dialogue on process, fee explanation, and great resource connected to other individuals and businesses. 100% Trust in Chris and the entire team during our experience.

KatieRegister

Chris Brown at Certified Mortgage Planners was referred to me by a co-worker for my 1st home purchase. As a first time buyer going through this process is stressful and tedious and I couldn’t imagine going through it without Chris and his team. They worked very closely with my Realtor, which made communication and the process very smooth. Regardless of who’s hand my loan approval, inspection, appraisal, underwriting and closing was in, Chris was right there whenever I needed him even sometimes at rare hours. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for home loan or refinance assistance. Thank you Chris!

Things that come to mind from my experience with Chris Brown is honesty, integrity, and professionalism. He was super knowledgeable about the process and aided in selecting the best path. He’s your man for all your mortgage needs.


Mdzengeleski

We were looking to buy a home in Orlando, FL, but still living in Massachusetts and knew it would not be easy. When we meet Chris Brown and his team from Certified Mortgage Planner that all changed. Chris and his team were professional and organized and their knowledge of the industry was spot-on. They kept us up to date on everything, with a weekly Tuesday update call, when talking with them, they always made you feel like a friend. Even with our late night emails to them, we got fast response. Thank you Chris and team for giving us a wonderful home buying experience.

skitchens8

It was a pleasure to work with Chris Brown and the entire team at Certified Mortgage Planners. Chris was responsive to all questions, dependable and always reliable. He was extremely patient and thorough answering all of my questions. I would not go anywhere else for mortgage financing.

jsmd16

Chris was very conscientious of making sure that questions were answered and fears were calmed. His weekly Tuesday phone call check-ins were very helpful. I had many questions about Florida laws since this is our first home in the state and he was very knowledgeable and informative. It was a very positive and remarkable experience.

cindyneylon - Advised NOT to change mortgage position – short sale was best option.

Chris is absolutely an asset to the mortgage broker profession! He is professional, courteous and very efficient at his job. He truly takes pride in his work and it shows!!! :) Thanks, again, Chris.

Juan Tirado – helped them buy a home

Jon folmar2000

Chris Brown and his team are the best!! I highly recommend using them! If I’m ever in the market again, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact them. They actually do care!”

Christina LeClairehelped them buy their first home.
 Went I first reached out to the Chris Brown team it was on a Saturday morning. I clicked on the button to contact them and then expected to be contacted sometime early the next week, but that’s not how things worked out. I received a text message, an email and a phone call from his team within 5 minutes!!! When I received the call I actually started laughing at the quickness they had. You see, my husband and I found “the house” on a Friday afternoon. I called the realtor listed on the Zillow site and we met him at the home first thing Saturday morning. We fell in love with the house and told the realtor that we wanted to put in an offer but that we were not in any way prepared to do so (we had just resigned our lease on our apartment so we weren’t looking to buy… but this was “the house”). He gave us a business card for someone he said would do a good job on the mortgage, I said great and stated that I would call her as soon as I got home. That’s when he told me I would have to wait until Monday. That didn’t really sit will with me because once I set my mind to a task I want to complete it (very type A personality), so when my phone rang and it was Tony with the Chris Brown team I was over the moon! I did everything they asked and we were able to put in an offer by Saturday night! I mean this was the first home we had ever put an offer in on but I don’t think any companies move as quickly as they do. In the long run we didn’t get the house and changed realtors but stayed with the Chris Brown team. We found an amazing realtor, found an amazing home, and continued to work with Chris and his team. We are closing today on our first home and thanks to all of the amazing people at the Chris Brown team we are actually closing a week early!!! ”
 Chris and his team are great at their job. They made sure our end of the transaction went as smoothly as possible. They went above and beyond their responsibilities to make sure we understood our contract, and to help execute the purchase of our new home.
We just closed on our dream beach condo with the Chris Brown team and we just have to tell everyone how lucky we were to have them on our side. Our file was not easy with numerous moving parts. With each obstacle, Chris and Anne were right by our side working to solutions to even close EARLY! We highly recommend using his team as you will receive personal customer service along with incredible knowledge.
 Chris Brown invests his time to understand buyers situation, and finds the perfect loan /deal. He takes personal interest in the wellbeing of his clients. I have used Chris twice for my home mortgage, and will use him again if needed. It is like working with a good and trustworthy friend.

Working with Chris and his team was one of the most easiest and smoothest real estate experiences I’ve ever had. From beginning to end, Chris was professional, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Not only was he able to get the best rate possible for me for my refinance, but was able to negotiate a lower rate for me when the time came. Always attentive to my real estate goals, Chris kept in great communication with me the whole time. Smooth sailing! Highly recommend. Thanks Chris and team.

The Chris Brown team is truely exceptional. Awesome service and fantastic personalitys. When I met chris in person, it felt like we knew each other for years. I would recommend this team to anyone.

We began our Home Search with a few different Mortgage companies. We quickly saw what Separated Chris and His Team. Their Highly informative no pressure process has allowed us to make calculated decisions when it comes to our home purchase. Whether it be questions on budgeting, qualification or general time table of events Chris and his team responded quickly and accurately helped us. I will be using Chris again in the future and will recommend everyone looking for a mortgage to give him a call.

My experience with Chris Brown has been a very positive, effective and constructive one. I found Chris to be personable, caring, quick to respond, and very knowledgeable. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize that he is genuine and will serve your needs and best interest at hand. I recommend Chris and his associates highly to anyone looking for honest answers, valuable informationm and immediate service. Sincerely John Audibert

user171343938

Great experience and will work with Chris Brown in the future in Florida. He was recommended to me via a Realtor in California. I have already recommended his company to a friend of mine and I am very sure he will complete his mortgage just like he did for me.

user2525696 

I have done 2 other refi’s before and no one else has done as good a job as Chris and his team. He was very thoughtful and informative every step of the way. Chris always kept in touch everyTuesday. That means a lot to me for that shows that i was not just another face in the crowd. Since travel times and distance was not conducive to our meeting we were able to get some stuff done remotely. This took away any added pressure of trying to get somewhere. I would certainly recomend Chris to anyone and everyone who wants to either buy a house or refi.

Chris and his team were a pleasure to work with. From day one they made it known that accomplishing my goals was their number 1 priority. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for any type of home financing in the future!

Chris Brown helped my family with our first home. His team was knowledgeable and always there to answer questions I had whether it was by email phone or text. They took time to listen and encourage us in making decisions. Chris Brown and his team are reputable and they have integrity. I recommend them to all who need thier services taken care of.

user01447870 , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris Brown and his team helped me through the somewhat difficult process of refinancing my house here in South Florida. I did not know that I could be eligible to bring my mortgage down to an affordable amount, and with Chris Brown and his team helping me with the re-financing situation, I now have a monthly mortgage payment that I can live with. Great team and always there to answer any questions that I may have had!

user9308468 , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Certified Mortgage Planners helped me out a great deal with an extremely difficult HARP refinance for my condo. Everyone on the team was especially friendly, knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

I personally dealt with Chris Brown and Lori Dickinson and they were terrific to work with. They made the whole process really easy to work through and allowed me to continue to focus on more important day to day items.

I want to work with the best team in the industry and that’s exactly what I got. I seek to work with companies that offer great customer service, and who genuinely love what they do. Thanks again!

user2983283 , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

I had a very frustrating experience with a large national mortgage company, who did not seem to know what they were doing, were disorganized and who ultimately were going to try to rush us to a closing with an $8000 increase in interest costs after more than 6 months.

Then I found Chris’s info on line and contacted him. What a difference! Chris and his team were organized, full of relevant information and streamlined the whole process for us every step of the way. At the end of the day, we were very happy with the outcome. I cannot recommend Chris and his team enough. If you are struggling with a refinance or need a new mortgage. Please give him a call. Eric Melanson

user3865607 , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

My experience with The Chris Brown Team of professionals was perhaps the most gratifying real estate experience of my life. Their knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of the HARP refinance process is without equal, as far as I am aware, and although it was a lengthy and sometimes tedious experience, it ultimately resulted in a refinance at more than 2% below the rate of our present mortgage, accruing a savings of nearly $500 per month. There is no one I would recommend higher than Chris for help to anyone struggling with a high interest rate underwater mortgage. If it can be done, Chris and his team can be relied on to do it in a way that always has your best interests in mind.

 user8144590  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

After learning about HARP and the length of time whole the process could take, I was not looking forward to the hassle of going through all the hoops required. But all of that changed with the help of Chris Brown and his team at Certified Mortgage Planners. With Chris’ help, we were on a fast track to savings from the very beginning (in fact, we closed in less than two months). Chris and his team were great in explaining things every step of the way. We went from an interest rate of 6.875 to 4 percent and couldn’t be happier with the results. We certainly recommend Chris and his team to anyone in the market for a mortgage or refinance.

 user574325  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

I had a great experience with the Chris Brown Team. I’m a small business owner and retired from the Government so my financing was a challenge but we were able to get it done with no problems.

 user9695621  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris Brown and his team made it happen for me! I had a HARP 2.0 refi on a home in FL where my LTV was outside the limits of everyone else I spoke with. I went from a 6.625% rate to 4.25% and saved over $400 a month on my monthly payment. Plus, super friendly, great communication and always positive.Thanks!

user9402515  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Just recently, we closed on a re-finance for a property that we have in Florida that we thought no one would touch because of the high LTV. Since we are people that do not walk away from our obligations, we tried diligently to re-finance under the HARP 2 guidelines with many lenders, but Chris Brown and his team were the only ones that went the distance for us and got it done. We would recommend them to anyone because they are a top notch team and will go the extra mile to take care of you. At closing, we received a well organized binder with all documents in order for our records. The best thing we liked about dealing with Chris was that he was just a phone call away when we needed a question answered, and he offered his expertise in making decisions in the re-finance process. Since talking to an actual person nowadays is very rare, this was very reassuring. By being available to talk to us personally, he repeatedly showed that he truly cared about the outcome. We cannot say enough good about Chris and his team and would highly recommend them.

user088173  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris and his team were very responsive and informative throughout the process of refinancing my home via the HARP process. They answered all of my many questions and I got the outcome that I expected.

I highly recommend them to my friends and to you.

We recently refianced our mortgage with Chris Brown via a Harp 2 loan process. He was professional and knowledgeable with every step of the process. His rates were very competitive and each member of his team were outstanding. We highly recommend the “Chris Brown Team” for your mortgage financing.

Robert Brown  , Real Estate Investor

Chris consistently exceeds expectations with customers that I, a real estate broker, send his way. He takes initiative and uses video chats with customers to keep them informed on the status of their loan on a regular basis and to educate them on the process and what to expect. He follows through after the loan is closed and refers back to the real estate agent that helped them. A real professional that I am comfortable recommending to anyone that has a mortgage need. Reflects very well on the mortgage industry and sets a standard for service and ethics by which other mortgage professionals should be measured.

user76012722  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

HARP 2.0 refinancing is not a simple process, but Mr. Chris Brown made the difference. Through a positive attitude, great professional skills, and quick and efficient response to any inquiry I had, he managed to produce results that exceeded my expectations.

First and most important: We must confess that at the beginning we were someone concerned as the Brown Team was referred to us by ZILLOW… at the end, WE ARE VERY PEASE FOR THE RECOMMENDATON!!! The Chris Brown and his team work very diligently and on point. From day one The Chris Brown TEAM made it known that their number ONE priority was to ensure a smooth process. Chris Brown and his team spend few hours explaining in details what will take in the entire process. They worked very closely with my Realtor, which made communication and the process very smooth. We now can say that we do TRUST 100% in Chris and his Certified Mortgage Planners team. We were never left to hang, we have the Tuesday updates. We love it. We are very please and will recommend Mr. Chris Brown to any of our friends and family. BIG shout to the Brown Team!

Chris and his team helped us refinance through the HARP 2 program, which helps underwater homeowners with good credit refinance, regardless of amout owed, and the value of the home. I had tried other banks that said they would be participating, but never got them to return calls. Chris called the very next day, after I had received a detailed email with the process outlined, and offered to answer any questions, and assist with anything that we needed. He also respected my time, which during the first call was a graduation party, and went to work right away with my case. Despite lenders that quit the program, after 5-6 weeks, and ones that would only finance for a certain length of time, we eventually closed after a long and arduous process that Chris and his team navigated like pros. The new mortgage will shave 4 years off our term, and save us about $100 per month along the way. We stand to save around $65,000, because of their dedicated and untiring effort.

sean77fl  , Improved Mortgage Terms With Chris’ Advice

Chris and his team at Certified Mortgage Planners were phenomenal to work with. My HARP refinance was a bit tricky due to my loan having lender paid mortgage insurance through United Guarnty. They made it a breeze. I would highly recommend Chris and his team if you are looking to refinance your home in Florida.

Chris and his team guided us from start to finish with clarity and compassion. They made the entire transition seamless and even sent an agent for closing to our house to accommodate our scheduling needs. I would recommend Chris and his team to any family member or friend or acquaintance anytime. Thanks again.

We refinanced through the HARP program with Chris and his team. It took some time, but was so worth it. Saved us lots of money and a much better interest rate. Very positive experience. Highly Recommended. Thank you

Nothing but the best from Chris and team. I just upgraded to a new home with the outstanding help from Chris and his team. Chris and Aime are incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of the home buying process. They were always available and kept in constant contact. I highly recommend CMP and Chris Brown his team. They met and exceeded all expectations in my new home purchase as well as a re-fi a few years ago.

Dina Fisher, helped her buy a home

I would highly recommend Chris Brown and his team! Chris always has something positive to say. Tony guided me turn by turn to my appointment when my GPS took me in the wrong direction. Anne, Aime and Lara always explained exactly what was needed to move to the next step. Are you are looking for a team to guide you through the home mortgage process? Stop looking, you have found the perfect team!

Rick Mackey, helped them buy a home

My wife and I recently relocated to the Lake Mary area from Maryland. We could not be more pleased with the support from the Chris Brown Team at Certified Mortgage Lenders. The entire process from the initial introductory call to settlement could not of been better. Settlement preparation requires tons of detail but Chris and team clearly explained the step by step process and sent friendly reminders for deadlines to be met. Everything went smooth and the entire team was exceptionally courteous and responsive.
