What it’s like to work with Brooks
It was a delight to work with Brooks and Umpqua Bank on my home financing. Everyone on the team was exceptional, caring, and went out of their way to help me purchase the home of my dreams.

Brooks is such a great loan officer that we have used him 3 times in the past 1.5 years. And we will return if another opportunity arises. In addition, we plan to refer him to anyone in need.
