Stephen was amazing to work with on our new condo in St Simons Island. Not only did he have an attention to detail, but he made us feel that he was on our team rooting for us all the way. He bent over backwards to meet our timelines so that we could close and enjoy the 4th of Julyin our beautiful home away from home.

We had an excellent experience working with Stephen Moreno on securing a mortgage for our new home in Southeast Georgia. We contacted Stephen as we were looking for a local lender and immediately knew that he was the person for us. He was very helpful to us and was extremely patient in answering our many questions about the process. He also provided the requisite knowledge to ensure that we understood the process and that we were able to secure a mortgage that was most beneficial to us. Stephen …

We were very impressed with Stephen Moreno and his entire lending team at Brand Mortgage. What impressed me most was Stephen’s ability to communicate quickly and effectively about any questions or concerns that we had throughout the entire home buying process. Through his cordial attitude we received outstanding customer service that could not be matched by any other local lender. Not only did Stephen and his team close our loan, but he also offered helpful advice along the way. All the way to …
Now that the pictures are hung and endless boxes are unpacked I can write this letter with the deserving gratitude my husband and I would like to express for Stephen Moreno. His title with BrandMortgage is Mortgage Loan Officer, however he goes beyond his call of duty. Throughout our quest to purchase a home he exemplified pure professionalism, knowledge of industry, and communication.
Our client relationship with Stephen began in 2015 when my husband and I started discussing the idea of …

We spoke with Stephen 2 years ago about purchasing a home. At the time, our credit scores would not allow us to move forward with the process. Well, Stephen took time out of his schedule to provide us with advice to improve our scores. Today, we are homeowners, thanks to his advice. We highly recommend Stephen Moreno. There’s not many loan officers that would take time out of their schedule to do what he did. Thanks for everything Stephen! Mr and Mrs Price.
Stephen was really helpful throughout the entire process. We had a couple of hiccups along the way with the seller and their agents, and Stephen was great about giving advice and guidance to make the process a success all the way through closing. Thanks, Stephen!
I would like to highly recommend Stephen Moreno for his work as our mortgage broker. Stephen worked diligently on our loan package and made the process very easy from start to finish. Applying for a loan can be a daunting process but with Stephen’s help and Brand Mortgage’s easy to use online application and document system we found the process to be simple and convenient. Stephen kept in constant contact with us right up to the day of closing and several times since to make sure we had had …
Stephen was on top of our re-fi the entire way through. Any time I called, or texted, he answered. He never had to “look us up” or look at notes to remember what we were doing. He was very thorough and was incredibly knowledgeable in the entire process from the paperwork and applications, through documentation, and even helped to navigate through new legislation and legality. He is well researched, and the best I’ve had the pleasure of working with. As an aside, he is also easy to talk to and so…
Stephen Moreno was so helpful and made buying our first home a great experience. There were no realtors involved in the purchasing of our first home which made for a great deal of questions for Stephen. Stephen was always available with an answer! He really went above and beyond in helping us with our first mortgage. Stephen always made sure to break things down so we fully understood the whole process and could be prepared for the next step. Let’s just say that Stephen has a lot of patience! …
