Justin Brilman
SVP of Mortgage Lending

Justin Brilman is a Top 1% Loan Officer,* closing more than $2 billion in funded loans in his tenured career.** He is renowned for his high-touch, high-consultancy philosophy to service with the goal to be your lender for life.
As a former US Super Kart Champion, Justin lives for speed. He takes pride in being an early tech adopter, in pursuit of making the loan process as efficient and streamlined as possible. He will consult with you to find out your specific financial needs and goals then help you understand the process and meet those needs with our huge variety of loan products.
Whether you're looking for a purchase, refinance, renovation or new construction loan, Justin and his team make the entire process easy and completely transparent with no surprises. Supported by a strong team of expert professionals to be available for you anytime with questions, closing your loan in record time.
Licensed in California, Massachusetts, and Wyoming, Justin is ready to help homebuyers in each locale with local expertise in each market. With over 20 years spent living in the Bay Area, he is especially versed in the nuances and speed at which those markets operate. With a passion for wine, he has expanded his footprint into the wine country as well (Napa and Sonoma County).
You could say he was born to work in this business. After all, his parents owned escrow and title insurance companies and he processed loan reconveyances at the early age of 16. With a brief stint away from the mortgage business in 2009, he created a nonprofit foreclosure intervention counseling program in Nevada and worked as a real estate agent with investors purchasing short sales, closing over 150 transactions in 2 years.
In Justin's personal life, he loves spending time in the Great Outdoors⁠—snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking and camping. If you're looking for a lender you would want to go wine tasting with, Justin is your guy. He also loves traveling and trying new foods, as his wife is a chef. Most of all, he loves spending quality time with his wife, daughter and their French Bulldog, Charlie.
