Like you, mortgage expert and loan consultant Brent Edwards knows there are numerous choices when it comes to getting a home loan. Is it all about the rate and cost? Who does the most advertising? Going to your bank for a “deal”? Or, is there a different approach?

With over two decades of mortgage origination, managing, coaching, and most importantly real life, in the trenches business experience, his view is radically different. Brent appreciates that his clients are making some of the most important financial decisions in their lives, and he is there to guide them to the right choices. Choices made through educating his clients, and presenting them with beneficial solutions. Mediocre loan officers sell rates. Brent sells Benefits.

Brent has the “client for life mentality”- a family approach. His practical, street savvy style and fusion of real life experiences and easy conversation allow him to connect with his clients at a base level. Brent has the unique ability to garner a team effort during and after transactions, which ultimately benefits his clients.

Brent is the Branch Manager of Seabright Mortgage, which he founded in 2010. His prior experience includes managing and producing for BWC, and Santa Cruz Mortgage. He is a current Board Member of Amazing Surf Adventures, and past multiyear director of Operation Surf Santa Cruz. A Marine Corps veteran he is dedicated to veteran’s causes. He spends his free time with his two daughters, in the water, or on his bike.

Brent was great! We loved working with him and look forward to working with him in the future.
