Securing Your American Dream

When buying a house, the first step is to be Pre-Approved by a Mortgage Broker rather than a bank.  Brian Merritt is well known in the industry for his ability to fully qualify his clients prior to making an offer on a home.  This makes the entire process of buying a home much less stressful knowing in advance that you are in good hands.  He and his team have helped perhaps thousands of clients over the last 23 years and have stellar reviews.  He also cares about getting you the best rates available and searches his vast array of wholesale lenders to find the best possible terms based on your particular situation.

Brian started his career in the real estate business as a Realtor in 1989.  He helped hundreds of home buyers find their homes.  In 2000, he decided to make the move to the other side of the desk to help people obtain their financing.  This proved to be a good move and has become one of the top mortgage experts in the country.  As the owner of Minuteman Mortgage, he is currently licensed in Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, and North Dakota.

Brian is always involved in the community.  He is currently serving as an Ambassador with the Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Kiwanis Club, the Vice President of the Rotary Club, and serves in the Branch Presidency at his church.

Brian has been married to his high school sweetheart, Lynda for 42 years and they have 3 wonderful sons, 3 beautiful daughters, and 8 grandchildren.

Brian is also a licensed drone pilot and often does videos for friends in the community and Realtor listings.  This is a recent video he filmed and edited of a deer that swam across the entire lake.
