Quick and Easy Refinance Yes, I recommend this lender Brian was great to work with and made our refinance experience easier than expected. From the time Brian and I first spoke to our closing took less than three weeks. Brian always took the time to answer any questions I had and made himself available to us anytime, even nights and weekends. He set up the closing to take place at our house and it was very quick and easy.
