What Our Customers Say About Us

We care what our customers think of us and so should you. We are partners in your business and your success is ours.

Mr. Carter and Ms. Simmons went to a builder to purchase a home, however, Blackstar Mortgage was able to provide the clients with a better deal less than 24 hours after their builder visit! Although the builder tried to match our deal, they were just unable to do so. There were some challenges, but Blackstar Mortgage prevailed as usual and now Mr. Carter and Ms. Simmons are Homeowners AGAIN! Special thanks once again to the Realtor Ms. Chika Moma and Congratulations Aldaah and Myia!

Special thanks to our Realtor Ms. Chika Moma; she Talked the Talk and Walked the Walk and made it to
the end with us! Chika was able to negotiate everything plus more! Brian, my Broker, put together the
quick financing with a great rate. With very few out of pocket expenses, I am now a HOME OWNER with
a legacy to pass down to my children!!! Thank you Blackstar Mortgage!!!

To a pair of my favorite clients, Petey and Natalie Owen, the third time was the charm!!! As The Owen’s required a very specific property, their first two purchase attempts ended abruptly due to the Seller’s over charging for the properties! However the Owens stuck with it, and with the assistance of their WONDERFUL Realtor Corey Gutowski, they found the perfect property and are now HOME OWNERS! Financing was easy and now we just look forward to the House Warming Party and many enjoyable evenings riding their beautiful Horses! Congratulations once again!!!

Introducing the New Dream Home Owners, Mr. and Mrs. Gurnell. At the beginning of the file the hopeful clients challenged Blackstar Mortgage to secure their Down Payment and Closing Cost funds! Well Blackstar Mortgage went a step farther. Not only did Blackstar Mortgage secure the Down Payment and Closing Costs, we were able to secure a check at Closing for CASH BACK to assist with whatever they wanted or needed! Their Realtor, Mr. David Hawkins, pictured on the right, was also pivotal in assisting in Closing this file! So once again, my hat is off to the Gurnell’s and Blackstar Mortgage for another successful purchase and another HAPPY FAMILY!!!

Brian was just PERFECT! He helped me cut through all of the legalese of my refinance and he simplified the process for me. I was able to pull out all of the money that I needed and he gave me the best interest rate that was available, and most importantly he worked with me on MY SCHEDULE! I could not have asked for anything more from my Loan Officer or Lender. I have recommended Brian Howell to all of my friends and family and I recommend Brian and Blackstar Mortgage LLC to you as well. He was definitely my guiding light HOME!

We know this was a lengthy process and you all gave us nothing but the best!!! We are beyond grateful Thank you so much!!! We are so blessed to have had such an amazing team!!!

I looked for just the right Mortgage Company and Loan Officer for more than a year until I was referred to Brian Howell. Brian refinanced me out of the horrible high interest rate loan that I had and gave me a VERY LOW INTEREST RATE on my NEW 30 YEAR MORTGAGE where everyone else said that it could not be done! Brian made it super easy for me because we did everything over the internet, and when I was too busy working Brian came to my office to have me sign documents and to pick up documentation. He was easy to work with, honest, gave me the attention that I needed (with my multiple questions), he worked early hours and late hours for me so that we could get the deal done. He even referred clients to me! I recommend Brian Howell for anyone who needs any type of Mortgage, REFINANCE or PURCHASE, Brian is the BEST!!!
