“My loan was cleared for closing in only 12 days and I skipped two payments.
The whole process could not have gone any smoother/better!” - Teaneck Resident

A Letter from the President

Although I started my career as a technology engineer, I quickly realized that I enjoyed building relationships with my customers much more than solving their technical problems.

After completing a Master’s degree in business, I dreamed of opening a mortgage company and combining my analytical engineering background with my entrepreneurial spirit.

Brightwire Loans is the realization of that dream.

The meaningful and long-lasting relationships created with clients and referral partners have provided me with a sense of personal satisfaction that comes with genuinely helping others.

Brightwire’s mission is to:

  1. Offer clients lower rates, lower fees, and better terms than they can find on their own.

  2. Close efficiently and quickly. Usually in 20 days or less.

  3. Answer all loan-related questions promptly with clear and direct answers

  4. Find a way for everyone to enjoy the unique privilege of home ownership - through exclusive loan programs, industry expertise, and creativity.

Please give Brightwire the opportunity to earn your business.

Best Regards,

Todd Harrington
