Everyone knew Brian Berman was going to make his mark on the world after he broke the record for most orders taken and money received at a McDonald’s drive-through during his teenage years – an honor that would earn him free drinks for life. That same youthful determination and resolve got him through college with a double major in economics and finance, with a focus on interest rate policy, the bond market and financial planning. This rigorous academic training led him to launch a business that was to grow exponentially.
If you ask Berman, his biggest strength is problem solving, and he looks at each loan as a unique puzzle. A master architect at every category of loan – whether first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers or jumbo mortgages – Berman knows how to structure a prudent mortgage for every conceivable financial picture, and is especially passionate about getting VA loans for America’s veterans. “Everyone’s looking for the lowest rate possible,” Berman says, “and I try to present all their options in the clearest way possible. Mortgage Atlanta LLC is a small direct lender, which means we are able to offer extremely competitive prices along with superlative one-on-one service. We’re also unencumbered by the bureaucratic obstacles that often accompany loans with larger banks, and they make it a practice to pre-qualify all the particulars up front, thereby avoiding unexpected setbacks along the way.”
Berman has become known for his transparency and proactive communication, even if phone calls need to take place after work hours. He believes people’s time is precious, and makes it a habit of answering phone calls and emails as quickly as possible. “Getting a loan is one of the most stressful components of the homebuying process,” Berman says. “The last thing a client needs is to wonder how things are progressing on their qualification, or whether they’re going to get all their finances lined up in time for closing. Timely communication is absolutely key.”
What makes all the hard work pay off? Berman credits his inspiration and drive to his amazing wife, his three-year-old and a brand new baby due to arrive in December. He also has a passion for the Atlanta Falcons. A season-ticket holder since 1992, he has missed only three home games in the past 12 years. “I guess you could say my favorite things in life are satisfied clients, a happy family and a winning touchdown or two.”
