  • My wife and I wished to express our gratitude for the excellent service and support we received last month from Brad Taunt, in your San Luis Obispo office. Brad made the process of getting a mortgage an educational and entertaining process with his thorough knowledge of the modern-day paperwork requirements, his outstandingly well-organized presentation of these requirements, and his warm, gracious explanations/clarifications of the questions we raised. We had entered into the process with some trepidation since we had not been required to make a mortgage application in many years. Brad quickly made us feel at ease and with his guidance, the process flowed along quite smoothly. We are very grateful for his help and will not hesitate to recommend him and your firm to anyone we know who might be seeking a mortgage. Brad is one great guy. Again, our thanks for excellent service.

  • Buying a home isn't only one of the most costly things you'll ever do, it's obviously one of the most stressful. You're under the gun in terms of time. You're wondering what kind of paperwork and bureaucratic nightmare you're going to encounter. And, of course, you're concerned with the complexity of the "process" or that you're "paying too much." For us, add in a cross-country move from NJ and our ignorance of the "way things are done" in CA. Our heads were spinning. Enter Brad Taunt. He was the calm in the storm that kept us calm. He took the time to get to know us and make us feel comfortable. He put us at ease. He explained everything, in layman's terms. He advised us on our options and made recommendations. He described the timing and the process in an orderly, simplified fashion. And even after we left his office -- he followed up, he held our hands, he guided us around potholes. In short -- he cared about us. We felt he was on side and trying to help us from every angle. Sure, there are plenty of mortgage services and professionals out there. But if you want honesty, a fair deal, and a true "partner," look no further than Brad Taunt.

  • Brad Taunt has always provided the utmost care and consideration for my customers' needs in fitting them with a real estate loan that meets their goals and time lines. He is very knowledgeable and proficient and never disappoints me in how he approaches the best interests of my clients. I have worked with Brad in the past for not only my investor clients, refinances as well as my first time home buyers. His expertise is always appreciated and his forthright honesty is commendable. Brad has a can do attitude, great communication skills and above all he puts the client first!

  • We recently had the misfortune of dealing with an “out-of-area lender” who almost caused our buyer to lose their escrow, and cost them a lot of money and heartache at the same time. It made us realize, again, how much we appreciate Brad Taunt's professionalism, knowledge, and diligence. Not only does he go the extra mile for our clients, but his company, imortgage, seems to always have competitive products to offer the consumer. We are thankful to be able to refer our clients to Brad with trust and confidence that they will have a great resource. Thank you, Brad, for doing a great job!

  • I've known Brad and have been doing business with him for over 24 years!! During those 24 years, I've found him to be very personable and also true to his word. He always stays in touch with the customer and also the Realtor of record!! He prides himself on always trying to get the loan finished and funded on or before the due date!! His attention to detail is always spot--on and complete!! And he always tries to make the clients as comfortable as possible in a business that is extremely stressful, to say the least... And his success rate for getting loans funded and finished is off the charts!! In closing, I must say that he has a great track record within the industry of getting loans done and making his clients extremely happy with His services. Last but not least, he is head and shoulders above his competition, and that's why he has been in the Biz for over 25 plus years of successful service...

  • Brad Taunt is the ultimate professional! I feel confident when I refer my clients to him that they will be well taken care of and receive timely, comprehensive information about the potential loan, the lending requirements and process. I have known and worked with Brad with imortgage and also with his former company. All told, our relationship has spanned approximately five years. During this time frame, Brad has completed dozens upon dozens of loans for my clients and not once did I hear a complaint or anything negative. The loans have all closed on time and with little to no stress. Brad listens to the clients and he knows his business. Moreover his creativity has saved several deals. When others have said it couldn't be done, Brad found a way to do it. I admire Brad's straight-forward, no-nonsense approach, his positive attitude, perseverance and sunny disposition. I would and do highly recommend him!
