“Brent is extremely knowledgeable and attentive. He is always available to assist, even after hours, and assisted us with the purchase of our dream home. We recommend him to anyone purchasing a home in the Charleston area. His experience and efficiency were truly a necessity for us. Also, Brent is a great person and we are glad to know him.”

– Whitney and Wayne L.

“This was a very long process for me. My credit at the start of the process was not good. Then I went through a divorce. Through the many years Brent still remained very professional with me even though it seemed I would never obtain a mortgage! I followed his advice and repaired my credit and now own a home. What a great feeling to know that I’m back on the right track. Thanks a million!”

– Lisa S.

“Awesome experience. Kept us informed every step of the way. Kept this excitable client off the ceiling!”

– Robin G.

“If we had any questions (for Brent), they were answered very quickly…it seems within minutes!”

– Cheryl & Rick C.

“Brent was very personable, upfront, and informative. He always responded in a timely manner and kept everything moving along smoothly. Couldn’t be happier with his services.”

– Charles & Lucy P.

“I was looking for a quick approval. We found a house on Saturday and needed a pre approval letter fast; at first, it didn’t matter who it came from. If Brent would not have answered his phone that Saturday, we would have called someone else. Since that point, Brent was responsive 100% of the time and even came to our closing! This is the 5th property we’ve purchased and Brent will definitely get the call for our 6th! We will also be certain to tell our friends about the great experience we had with Brent.”

– Kimberly & Steven H.

“I can’t recommend Brent Merritt highly enough. As a first time home buyer, I had numerous questions and concerns, and Brent took the time to educate me on every aspect of the process. I had a seemingly endless bag of questions to ask throughout the process, and he always took the time to adequately address every one of them. No matter what I needed to know, it was comforting knowing Brent would get back to me very quickly. He is knowledgeable, professional, and a great guy. I am completely comfortable recommending Brent to all my friends and clients.”

– Dusty H.

“In all of the over 9 years I have worked with Brent as my “go to” mortgage broker / banker, he has NEVER let me down. We have completed MANY MANY real estate transactions together and I cannot even think of one that went bad or that Brent didn’t do what he said he could do. Brent is one of the best at qualifying a buyer for a loan and when he does give them the green light there is never a doubt that the loan won’t get closed. Because any person involved with the “team” that I provide to my clients in a real estate transaction including attorneys, inspectors, appraisers, etc…are an extension of myself and my character, I am very careful who I trust my clients with. Brent is at the top of the list when it comes to the mortgage professional I introduce my clients to, and there’s no doubt that he should be at the top of your list too!”

– Brian W. W.

“Brent uses his expertise, experience, education, and personal relationships to give his customers the best quality service in the industry. I have always, and will continue to, send anyone looking for mortgage expertise to Brent.”

– Adam K.

“Working with Brent was very professional and I would recommend his services to anyone who is purchasing or refinancing. Brent was very diligent in his communication and made sure we understood the process and terms of our loan. A very smooth process.”

– Sarah & William P.

“Brent Merritt is AWESOME!”

– Angela & Marc G.

“Brent was instrumental in helping us to secure a loan (refi) that met our needs. I had been quoted rates from “leading” banks and Brent was able to beat them, charge me less, and limit my out-of-pocket at closing. Completely seem less process, no problems at all. We appreciate the honesty, courtesy, and professionalism shown by Brent and Benchmark.”

– Misti & Jeffrey H.

“Brent was a great asset in answering all my questions and needs. He always answered the phone and spoke to me like I was his only customer. Highly recommended!”

– Roxy V.

– Missi & Alan F.

“Brent was exceptional throughout the entire process. He kept me informed every step of the way and delivered on each date that he predicted. I would recommend him to anyone.”

– Michael T.

“Brent was extremely diligent and communicated very clearly throughout the process and got a difficult loan done quickly. Thank you!”
