Brett Pehrson is absolutely fantastic to work with. This is our second mortgage with him and it has been a pleasure to work with him. He is so knowledgeable, and takes the time to teach us important concepts and helps provide feedback for what is best for our situation. He is always very quick to respond to questions and does a great job educating us on the process. Would very highly recommend him to anyone looking for a mortgage or refi.

Herriman, UT | March 03, 2017

I recently purchased my home in May with the help of Barnel Fail. I have nothing but the highest regards for this guy! He is very responsive, honest, and works endlessly to get you through the whole home buying experience! From the beginning, Barnel was very personable and professional! He explained everything with patience and confidence making this stressful time an enjoyable one! I never once felt discouraged or worried he wouldn't meet deadlines because he kept in touch with me every step of the way and got things done before they were due! My family and I are so grateful to Barnel for helping us purchase our dream home! We were so happy with his services that I referred him to my sister. He helped her buy her home a month after I did! He's got to be one of the best in the business! Definitely would entrust Barnel to handle all your financing needs!

- Jean, Real Estate Agent

- Brad
Fruit Heights, UT | July 31, 2012

Teri is one of the best people we have worked with in any field. I doubt I will ever get money cheaper than 3.25% she got us on our dream home, so more than likely I will never need a home loan again, but if I do I will call her.

- Kam

Advanced Funding is a life saver for me and my mortgage needs.

- Keith
Farmington, UT | December 04, 2012

Thanks Barnel! My wife and I really enjoyed working with you on our refinance. Your pride and professionalism are second to none. The one thing that we were impressed the most with is the level of personal service that you gave us, it was top notch! We really appreciate all you did for us. I would, and will recommend you to anyone I know that is thinking of refinancing. Thanks again!

- Gordy
West Valley City, UT | February 24, 2011

I just wanted to thank both of you for working so hard on our "ever so" difficult refinance. This was all possible because of your hard work and dedication. I am definitely sending out a good word to all our friends and family about Advanced Funding. Thanks again.

- Glenna
West Valley City, UT | October 24, 2012

I just wanted to write a note thanking Advanced Funding and especially Barnel for the great job they did on my house loan. I was with another lender and a friend at work recommended Barnel after hearing about all the problems I was having with the lender recommended to me by my real estate agent. Barnel stepped in, cleaned up the mess, game me great honest advice, saved me $3,000.00 in fees, and got me a lower interest rate... WOW!!! I would recommend Barnel Fail and Advanced Funding to anyone that needs a home loan. Thanks Barnel!!!

- Aaron
Bountiful, UT | February 15, 2013

I worked with Teri Pierce to purchase my first home. She was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure that I not only was able to purchase a home but that I understood every part of the process. She was there to answer any question at any time and worked hard to find the best options for me. I will recommend her and her team at Advanced Funding to everyone, it was such an easy decision to work with them.

I want to thank Barnel Fail, with all of his hard work, dedication, and professionalism in all he did to help my mother. We were hit with an unexpected death of our father and we needed to refinance their house in order for my mom to make ends meet. My heart goes out to Barnel for pushing through and helping us every step of the way! My mom was able to refinance her house in her name. We are forever grateful to Barnel for being there for us through a rough time and not letting us give up! You know your business and it shows through all you do. I can’t express how much I appreciate you for helping us even after the refinance was approved. Thank you Advanced Funding and Barnel Fail for everything you do! We will always refer you to everyone we know!!!

I have worked with Advanced Funding since 2001. They take pride in their work, and treat our staff with kindness and respect.

- Kris
Draper, UT | March 23, 2016

All I will tell you is that Barnel Fail knows his mortgage business well & knows how to work with people on not only a personal level but a professional level, he is very well respected by me. I will definitely use him again when the time comes. If you let this guy get away from your organization, you would undoubtedly have lost a great great employee. He was knowledgeable, very well educated in the business, represented Advanced Funding with the utmost respect, he even helped my real estate agent negotiate our deal. He played hard but fair & I loved the fact that his approach was delicate but direct interaction when discussing time frames about the appraiser & their long completion times which was holding us up with the sellers agent, because my agent was a little timid. I have never had a loan broker of his caliber & sophistication walk me through the process step by step, hand in hand all the way from the start to ending/closing. Better yet he goes to all of his closings, which is unheard of & I have purchased about 4 homes in the past & dealing with banks, I'll never do again. It really made my part really easy and stress-free. I also know that he had a good team working with him because he couldn't have done all this by himself so I want to thank his team as well. Needless to say we closed early and I was very happy with that. I love this guy & will refer him to any & all my friends who want to buy or refinance in the future.

- Jodi
Murray, UT | August 24, 2016

- Michael and Mary
Salt Lake City, UT | April 16, 2016

Advanced Funding made my first home purchase clean, specifically the professionalism displayed by my Loan Officer Quaeisean Scott. From day one, Quaeisean did everything he could to streamline the process to the best of his abilities and was always available when I needed his assistance. Quaeisean utilizes technology (i.e. text, email, e-sign) to expedite the process and communicates well. I'm very fortunate to have worked with Quaeisean and have nothing but great things to say about him. He represents Advanced Funding well, not to mention the help I received from Rhonda Jensen, the Processor along with Kerri at closing. Their services and efforts are much appreciated. Thank you.

- Eric R.
Salt Lake City, UT | April 13, 2016

Barnel Fail did such a great job. He kept us updated with our time lines and kept in communication with us about everything. I expressed my concern about the interest rate he first offered and he took care of us right away. I would definitely send my friends to Barnel. Thank you for everything!!

- Jodi
Sandy, UT | June 23, 2016

I really want to thank Advanced Funding and Barnel Fail for taking care of my mortgage needs and saving me about $8,000 on a bad loan from another lender. It was very necessary that I refinanced my loan and Barnel was very well-educated on the process. His assitants Rhonda and Carol were absolutely remarkable to work with as well. I really want to thank everyone again for excellent client services. I will refer my friends and associates to Advanced Funding for lending & mortgage needs...

- Cameron and Trisha
Salt Lake City, UT | June 24, 2016

Great job Barnel, Carol, and Rhonda. They were all absolutely remarkable. The banks denied me a loan because of my less then perfect credit score. Barnel found a way and got me into a home. At times his processors were hard to get in contact with but I understand the demand. Barnel was educated on the process, even answered calls while out of town. Overall everyone involved was very impressive and I would definitely use Advanced Funding again for my mortgage needs.

- Sherrie
West Valley City, UT | June 27, 2016

Nathan Pierce and Advanced Funding were fantastic to work with. Their response time on phone calls and emails was top notch. I highly recommend them!

I got to say, this company was great. The agent promised great service & that's what I received. Barnel Fail was great to work with, he was very informative. He keep us updated every step of the way until the closing. He also got us a better rate than he quoted initially. So thanks again Advanced Funding and Barnel Fail for service well done. I am recommending you to my friends & family. Thanks again...

- Jennifer
Clearfield, UT | June 26, 2016

As a Realtor I have worked with many Mortgage companies, I have closed about a dozen transactions with Cindy Shoop and Connie Mascherino at Advanced Funding and I am always pleased with their speed and accuracy.

Salt Lake City, UT | October 17, 2016

Our experience could not have been better. I was late getting started on a new home mortgage, most of my attention was on selling our current home. Nathan got our approval started on a Saturday, and the rest of the process went really smooth. We ended up with an excellent rate and closing costs. I highly recommend Advanced Funding Home Mortgage Loans.
