Joe is an amazing loan officer. He answered all of my questions quickly, and went above and beyond to make sure that I felt comfortable with every decision and that I was always informed¬†with the status of the loan. I would quickly recommend him to my friends who are looking to buy a home and want the easiest process possible. Mahalo Joe ūüôā

My wife and I were purchasing our first home and as you can imagine we were nervous about the entire process. Working with Kent Okihiro, however, was the best decision we could have made in this new experience. He understood that as first time home buyers we needed a little extra time and information to be confident and comfortable with our purchase. He answered even our most mundane questions with care and attention, offering his expert recommendations when needed. We never once felt like we were working with a loan officer but instead with a friend. My wife and I are now proud owners of our first home and we¬†couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. I highly recommend HME and Kent Okihiro for all your mortgage needs!

He listens to his customers and shows the utmost respect for his clients. In addition, Brian is an expert in working with VA Loan benefits.

Brian was very helpful in the whole process. I gave him a very short deadline and he still ended up beating my other loan officer. He made me feel comfortable with the process, because he was so informative about everything.

I am very satisfied of the high quality of service Brian Monroe has provided. He has helped me so much during the mortgage process of purchasing my new home. At first I was dealing with multiple lenders because of my loan situation and I was very stressed out and worried that I may not be able to purchase my new home, but switching over to HME and working with Brian changed all that. Brian was quick to respond to any of my questions, emails, and calls. He made sure that I was well taken care and he looked out for my best interests. Without a doubt, my experience with Brian and the HME team was awesome and I would definetly recommend him to others. Thanks.
