I am pleased to have this opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for Brett Lightner. It has been my extreme pleasure to have known Brett for approximately eleven years now. Our relationship started out on the slopes at Mammoth Mountain, CA where we quickly became ski companions challenging each other to elevate our skills on the ski runs. As a level 3 ski instructor, there were few people that could keep up with me on the hill, so it was refreshing to meet someone like Brett with so much talent and sense of adventure! His vibrant and fun personality along with his genuine sense of compassion and unwavering positive attitude made me want to have Brett in my life as a friend forever.

When I got into real estate as a profession in 1993, Brett was immediately one of the first lenders I would send my clients to. His honesty and integrity never once faltered, and my clients always knew they were in good hands and that their best interests were always at the top of Brett’s list of priorities. He is someone you can always count on getting back to you in a prompt manner, and no potential transaction is too small for him not to want to help out with. Brett is a true man of service to others in every sense of the way. He is connected with more people than any one single person I know! I honestly don’t know how he can keep track of so many friends, colleagues and clients. But, everyone who meets him recognizes his value as an authentic person, and as a highly trained and experienced lender with an incredible depth of knowledge in the industry and in current market conditions.

I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Brett to anyone! I hope you will have the fortune to work with him and experience everything he has to offer.

Sincere Regards,

“There are many reasons to work with Brett Lightner…and the most important to us was that he was extremely open and available to answering every question we had about the loan process.
He gave us a number of options to consider and while he would share his opinion, we always felt like we were the ones making the choices.

Brett is very true to his word and we always felt like we were in good hands. Unlike many business transactions, our work with Brett was a personal relationship and not just business as usual.” Mona & Lou Moore - 1st time home buyers


“Brett offers loan options suited to the particular borrower.  I have referred clients to him and have used his services personally.  I agree with my clients who find Brett easy to deal with, quick to respond and clear in his explanations of various loan options. 

Once a loan has been chosen, Brett makes the process easy and knows the status of the loan approval and funding process.  If more information is needed, he will contact you and get it.  He assists in the application process so from start to finish obtaining a loan is a snap!”
Hilllery Grosberg, Attorney


“I have  been extremely happy with my dealings with Brett regarding my loan. This is the second dealing I’ve had with him, and I cannot say enough nice things about him. Not only was he exceptional in processing my loan, but he was always available  to offer good advice in the whole buying process. I just felt he always looked out for my interests first. In my book, he is just aces!!  Brett displays the professionalism that you display in your dealings and I respect his work ethic. That’s it. 
A Letter From a Client To Brett’s Realtor


“I have been associated with Brett Lightner of American Capital Mortgage since 1996 when he took over a loan in the midst of a home purchase for a client who was very unhappy with her original mortgage broker.  He took a challenging situation and made it work as he has many times since then.

He is a great communicator who does not discriminate on the size and types of loans he works with and always provides great service.  He makes the process simple for my clients and he’s right with them every step of the way.

Brett is a also terrific problem solver who realizes that when he does a good job for people he becomes their mortgage broker for life.”
Jon Molin - Realtor, Ramsey Shilling


“Brett not only helps you understand the process, he will tell you if a refi is not right for you. He is easy going, trustworthy and really knows his stuff. Anyone would love working with him.“
Kate Higgins, Burbank
