Team Ferrick Testimonials

This is the second home that we financed through The Brian Ferrick Team. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. From the initial inquiry about a mortgage to the date we closed, they were honest, professional, and the communication every step of the way was top notch. A huge thank you to Billy Jean who walked us through each step and was there to answer all my questions immediately. We were never left wondering about anything. If you are looking for a new mortgage or a refi, don’t go anywhere else!!!

Brian Ferrick saved our Dream home for my husband Kurt and I.

I was 8 months pregnant when we put in an offer on a home.
We were Pre-Approved with another mortgage company. Then when we started the process they said they couldn’t do it. We tried a couple of places and they said no. My agent then suggested calling Brian because that is who she recommends to her clients.

We called Brian and are so glad we did.

Not only did he do our loan, he did it for less fees, a better interest rate, and closed it very quickly. Just in time for me to have our new baby.

I use to think all banks and lenders had to be pretty much the same, but now I know Brian is in another league. I read other stories online and on Brian’s site like mine and wasn’t sure what to believe. Now I am writing so everyone else looking to purchase or refinance their home will call Brian so they get the BEST.

The stories are real and I am living proof.
I will be forever grateful to Brian and his team for helping us in the 
eleventh hour.

-Nicole & Kurt Skinner

I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and guidance in helping  us purchase our first home with NO MONEY down. Many of my friends told me  how difficult it is to get a new home, let alone one with NO MONEY DOWN, and how much of a pain the whole process can be.

You made the process  hassle free; you were quick with answers and explained the whole process  in a way which made it easy for us to understand as first time home buyers.

You told us exactly what we needed ahead of time and what to expect. Everything went off without a hitch and we are happily settled  in our new home.

Thank you so much and thank your staff as well, your  follow through, professionalism, and knowledge is greatly appreciated.  If we ever think of purchasing another home, we will definitely be giving you a call.
You are our guy for LIFE!

Thanks again for your help!
-Michael & Rachel

Brian, Thanks so much for your help with everything and tell James thank you for us to. It was kind of a head ache gathering all the paper work but this is our first house and really didn’t know what to expect. Not to mention it was a 203K loan so we realize it takes a little more effort but you guys made it really easy on us.

Can’t imagine what it would of been like using best home financial. They were not nearly as familiar with this type of loan as you guys were. We will definitely pass your name along.

Again thanks for all your help and be sure to tell James thank you for us as well. I’m sure you will hear from us again if we decide to move on in a few years for an upgrade.


-Tony & Sarah

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all you have done for us!!! We will finally be able to settle in to our new home, thanks to you!

It was a long process since we started at the other bank then they said NO, but we are so grateful you were there to guide us through every step and get our deal done unlike the first bank. It was such a pleasure working with your team. We will be sure to recommend your services to our friends and family.
Thanks again!

Jess & Chris — The new homeowners!

Thank you very much. You were fantastic to work with and I am so lucky to have found this house and have Jason refer me to you. You two working together saved me thousands of dollars because no one had mentioned the RD loan before you.

Thanks again and I will most definitely be referring friends and family when they are looking for homes in the future.

– Aaron Coville

Thank you sir! I would like to thank you for your help on my loan.
You’ve been great to work with and have taken great care of me through this process. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know who is looking.


– Casey Gerken

Brian Ferrick made our refinance fast and easy.
Brian called us and said he thought it would make sense to take another look at refinancing since rates were so low.

After reviewing our current mortgage situation, Brian informed us of the potential HUGE savings that we could take advantage of. With Brian’s help we went down to a 15 year fixed mortgage from our 30 year fixed mortgage.
We are not paying much more, cutting many years off our mortgage and will be saving thousands of dollars in interest.

We then got great news, we didn’t even need an appraisal. We closed in about two weeks in a very smooth transaction. We will recommend Brian to all our family and friends. Many thanks to Brian Ferrick and his staff for their work in this process.

– Jack Pikaart

Thanks again, we love the home, and are awestruck that you were able to do the closing in such a short time. It is amazing we got into such a great home for no money down, no monthly mortgage insurance, and for such a low rate. We will recommend you to everyone we know. You delivered on all your promises.

Thanks again!
– John & Beth Stitzel

We wanted to let people know why everyone should use Brian for their loan. We began using an out of state company that said they specialized in VA loans. They pre-approved us.

Then when we moved forward they said we were not approved. We were devastated. Our realtor suggested we talk to his guy, Brian Ferrick. Brian was able to get us approved, get us a great loan for $0 down and a great rate, and close within 30 days.

Thank you for all your help getting our place. This “Old Marine” is impressed with you.

God Bless You and Your Family,
– Mike & Rosa Welch

We just completed our second transaction with Brian Ferrick. Brian has been fantastic! Brian helped us about 7 months ago with the purchase of our home. Everything went just as he said it would, we got a great rate, and Brian delivered on everything he promised.
We were extremely impressed.

Then about a month ago Brian called us and said rates had dropped and he could save us a significant amount of money. Brian again walked through everything with us, and had our refinance done within two weeks with no hassles.

We are saving a huge amount of money and it was extremely easy to do. So if you are looking to purchase a new home, or refinance your existing home you should use Brian. We would recommend Brian to everyone.

Thanks again Brian!
-Andrew & Molly Arntz

Hi Brian,
Just wanted to say Thank you because we showed your marketing presentation to a prospective listing client last night and they decided to list with us!!!

We were competing against 3 other agents and they said they were very impressed with our marketing and how we were cutting edge:)
Thanks for helping make us more effective at what we do:)

– Lindsay Van Duinen – Remax of Grand Rapids

“This summer, we worked with Brian Ferrick to refinance on our mortgage. Brian was so easy to work with and was able to secure an amazing rate. He definitely went above and beyond our expectations. Surprisingly, Brian was even able to have our appraisal waived. We would definitely recommend having Brian take a look at your current situation.”
