Ask An Expert

Why isn’t it a good idea to pay off your mortgage?

Paying off a mortgage quickly doesn’t make a lot of financial sense, but it does give a lot of homeowners a great deal of comfort. For it to make sense for you, the investment’s annualized rate of return needs to earn more than the cost of your mortgage interest rate. With many homeowners sitting on some of the lowest rates in history, (3.5%–5.5%) it’s not hard to achieve a higher rate of return. What makes it hard is that there are few guarantees in investments. While the stock market has produced a rate of return close to 10% over the last 90 years, individual investments lose money every day. Even real estate can include risk from market conditions and lack of liquidity. Working with a professional financial planner and mortgage loan officer is the best way to achieve confidence in your personal financial goals.

Brent Russell is a True Gentleman. I never thought that would matter to me, and yet, his calm, friendly, tactful demeanor, put me at ease, in what was a very stressful process for me. When viewing potential houses, he was quick to show me the plus/minus of each property, but never pushed me. Brent Russell, showed me the property, highlighted its value, and let me guide the process as to whether I wanted to continue, or move on. Brent Russell always responded to me within 24 hours or less, to any question I had. None of my questions/concerns were left unfulfilled.

Brent was continuously working on ways to advertising and promote the property for the best sale possible. When Brent brought someone else in to help him they were always invested in what they were doing and helpful in every way. We've used this broker for selling our old house on Skyview Place. Brent did a great job and always went above and beyond what other brokers had done for us in the past. If we had any questions he was always available to discuss them and if he didn't have the answer to our question he always researched it and brought the information to us. He tried the property like it was his own. Going by on his own time to make sure other brokers locked the property up, checked on air conditioning or heating to make sure they were at the correct setting and made sure lights that were to be kept on were on and those that were supposed to be off were off. We couldn't imagine working with anyone other then Brent and recommend him to anyone asking about a Realtor recommendation. I've explained why previously. I can't imagine anyone being more conscientious, invested personally or more thoughtful.

Brent kept us informed of every step in the process. We even looked forward to hearing from him. We're going to miss his calls. He had great ideas for marketing the house. He believed in the property and was very enthusiastic. He even offered to meet with Realtors bringing prospects and did several times. In some cases, the clients liked Brent better than their own agents. We totally relied on Brent and trusted him! We will definitely recommend him to our friends.

We used Brent to sell our previous home and he was incredible. We would never have thought of using anyone else to purchase our new home after our wonderful experience with selling our old home. Brent was always very attentive and responded quickly to our emails, text messages, and phone calls. We could not have asked for anything better! We highly recommend him. Brent suggested that we offer the sellers a quick closing and that suggestion closed the deal at a fair deal. He sets the bar high for Beverly Hanks! We would strongly and unequivocally recommend him to friends and family.

I felt like he treated me like family too. He ensured I got what I needed done prior to closing, and always was timely with his communications. I felt important to him. I told him I fell in love with my house when I saw the flag flying out front. The renter took the flag and holder with him. Guess what Brentwood bought me for closing? A flag, and holder. I am a veteran. This really meant so much to me. I will use him and Beverly Hanks again....if I ever need to. I will refer all my friends to him and Julie Smith. I was blown away by his kindness. He truly is adorable and more to me than a Realtor trying to close a deal.
