Find Out What People Are Saying About Brian Hines

This was my first experience with Priority Funding and I couldn’t have been happier. From the initial application to the closing it was a wonderful experience. This was my first mobile home loan and Brian (the Mortgage Officer) was very helpful. He reviewed the different loan products and payment options. He was also very patient when I had additional questions. This was also my first experience working with someone remotely and they guided me through the process with ease. Five star experience, I would highly recommend using them for a mobile home purchase.
