    Chris and Liz were outstanding making sure our loan happened. The service, follow-through, and communication was point on. Although our situation was tough, their persistence and understanding it o my helped make this loan happen, but helped my family deal with stressful times. I have other friends that will be moving to ID, and without question I will recommend Chris Bruce, and the Premier Team.

    When my husband and I were first recommended to Chris, we didn't think we had any chance at getting into a bigger home. We almost gave up a few times but every challenge that came our way Chris was able to walk us through it and made the process so much easier. He was quick to respond to calls or texts at any time, day or night. He answered our bazillions of questions and was incredibly kind and patient with us the entire time. Not only is Chris extremely knowledgeable about the home loan process but he is also an amazing person. He is so energetic and you can't help but be happy and excited after every conversation with him. Buying a home can be a really stressful thing, but with the right team, it doesn't have to be. Thank you for being a part of our team Chris!

    We were finishing up anesthesia school in Wisconsin when we accepted a job in Boise and applied for a loan to purchase a home, so our situation was not ideal. Chris took on the challenge. He went above and beyond to get us approved for a loan so we could build a home and have it ready by the time we moved to Idaho. We hit a few bumps along the way but Chris handled it. We were even able to close on our original closing date! (Not with out some Chris magic…it was a close call there in the end) Chris was very accessible and helpful when I had questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend Chris, especially if your situation is a little complex like ours was.

    Chris Bruce and Elizabeth Losh are amazing! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a loan. They saved us after we had troubles with another business. We saved so much money going through this company and we were able to complete our loan without any problems.

    Chris Bruce and Elizabeth Losh made our first home purchase the most amazing experience. Chris was phenomenal at keeping us informed and up to date on everything that was going on with our home purchase, right up to the closing. Liz was also awesome with letting us know what was what, so we didn't have hardly any questions through the whole process. Even if we did, we knew we could ask Chris get answers right away. Chris is not just our lender, he's become a good friend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Chris and Liz!! – The Elsey Family – FIRST TIME HOMEBUYERS!!!!!

    Chris Bruce did a awesome job for my client. I’ve been selling Real Estate for 23 years. I have always been reluctant to use a “out of town” lender. I was wrong whenever I get a chance ,I will refer all my clients to Chris. He’s very professional and always available to answer a question. Response quickly to email and text. Don’t hesitate to call Chris Bruce. Thank you , Leonard Ferrigno Lc advantage realty, llc

    Chris was so helpful with our refinance. We were up a creek without a paddle with our financial situation. But Chris was never judgemental or discouraging of what we wanted to do. Thankfully, it all worked. He is very quick to respond to phone calls, text, and emails. He also works with a great team. Thanks for everything Chris!

    Chris is the best loan officer I have ever had the pleasure to have working for our house purchase.
    My daughter is a 1st time home buyer, and we had a dream to buy land and put up a modular home. After trying several land parcels, we kept going over our budget. Chris tried everything to make it work, but it just wasn't in God's plan. After 6 months of frustration we went with an existing house. Chris was so helpful and so upbeat during this time. God really put him in our path. The final loan he got for her was awesome.
    I have worked with many loan processors in my own home buying and refinancing that I can honestly say he is the best and he truly cares about his customers. He shows God's caring and patience.
    Chris will work his best for you. He also is top ranked in communications.
    Thank you Chris and God bless you.

    Chris has now helped us with two home loans and one re-fi. He has always gone above and beyond to make sure our loan works, and gets our mortgage where we’re comfortable. He is thorough and always communicates through the whole process (and always has cool shoes on)

    Chris was definitely a pleasure to work with he was very prompt on returning phone calls and gathering information for me but I need it not to mention he was very patient with me and I'm very grateful for that. He was a pleasure to talk to you on the phone we had some good laughs and he was very informative with all of my real estate needs and not having much knowledge in it. He definitely went out of his way to find the best deals for me and any assistance available out there he's definitely a great asset to this community for sure

    Chris did my official loan when we purchased my home; he then did my recent refi and worked to not only get us the best rate, and accomplish everything in a timely manner. I not only would recommend Chris to everyone, but anytime I do a loan again, or purchase another home I will use Chris. Professional; polite; and gets the job done.

    Chris really went above and beyond for us (my husband and I) as first time homebuyers. He always called us back when he said he would, he always followed up, and he was great at answering all our (many) questions. We are so excited to be homeowners now! Chris came recommended to us by family, and we are glad we chose Chris/Premier. We will be recommending him to others in the TV who need a home!

About HECM (Reverse Mortgage)

At the conclusion of the term of the reverse mortgage loan contract, some or all of the equity in the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage no longer belongs to you and you may need to sell or transfer the property to repay the proceeds of the reverse mortgage from the proceeds of the sale or transfer or you must otherwise repay the reverse mortgage with interest from your other assets.

We may charge an origination fee, a mortgage insurance premium, closing costs or servicing fees for the reverse mortgage, all or any of which will be added to the balance of the reverse mortgage loan

The balance of the reverse mortgage loan grows over time and interest is charged on the outstanding loan balance.

You retain title to the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage until you sell or transfer the property and therefore you are responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, maintenance and related taxes. Failing to pay these amounts may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately and may be subject to a tax lien or other encumbrance or to possible foreclosure; and

Interest on a reverse mortgage is not deductible from the person’s income tax return until the person repays all or part of the reverse mortgage loan
