SunTrust's Physician Loan program is a unique and extremely desirable option for physicians who are just starting out in their careers. This program makes obtaining a mortgage loan fast and easy in a time when obtaining a traditional mortgage loan is cumbersome. From the start, Brent Eckhardt was direct, honest and sincere. He made himself available to answer any and all of my questions as quickly as possible. As a first-time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better person, or a better team, to handle all of my mortgage needs. Thanks for everything.

I have much experience with financing and refinancing as well as "shopping it.” Brent and his staff won hands down regarding follow-up as well as rates. Smooth sailing in difficult water.

It was a pleasure working with Brent and his team during my construction-to-perm loan for our future home in Leland, NC. Brent or someone from his team always responded quickly to all my questions and concerns. We closed on time and with the rate he had quoted. Great bank, great staff.

I truly had a great experience with Brent. He came highly recommended to me by a physician I work with. He was helpful through the entire process and kept me informed with every step. Importantly, as a physician he was available to talk or go through things with me whenever needed. As in business, the greatest compliment I could give is that I would happily work with him again and recommend him to any physician I know.

After being referred to a mortgage banker through the hospital’s corporate benefit program, I found that SunTrust beat their physician loan rates by 1.5%.

Brent was extremely helpful in listening to my needs as a physician looking for a home loan. He took the time to answer my questions thoroughly and he and his staff were very prompt in answering questions and understanding my concerns. He made the process as painless as it reasonably can be and he is very attuned to the specific needs of medical professionals who are looking for a mortgage. I would highly recommend Brent and his staff to any medical or dental professional in the home loan market.

Brent was able to get us a loan when no one else was even willing to speak with us. The rate he was able to get us was well below anything anyone else was advertising. My mortgage payment, with insurance included, is barely more than my rent was and about a third is going to principal, so I am saving hundreds of dollars a month thanks to the loan I was able to get through this program.

Brent Eckhardt and team were uniformly helpful, timely, and went the extra mile in a difficult environment.
-Dr. Swain, Jacksonville, NC
Brent has been with us every step of the way. His name kept coming up again and again when asking colleagues about the most competitive physician loan programs. With so many financing options and the lowest rates available, it was easy to go with SunTrust. He beat every quote I had been given from the competitors. Paperwork was simple, communication was clear, and the process couldn't have been easier, which was appreciated as a new physician in residency. If you're looking for the best physician loan out there, look no further.

I worked with Brent during our refinance and he was meticulous and customer-oriented. I recommend him to others who need his services and I wouldn't hesitate to seek his assistance again if the situation arose.

In the busy daily life of a physician, Brent streamlined the entire mortgage process. In comparing similar mortgage products, Brent easily rose to the top of pile. Having switched from one physician mortgage lender to another with SunTrust, I greatly appreciated the individual attention I received and was made to feel as if I brought value to this entire transaction. Definitely A+.
-J. Mueksch, Wilmington, NC
Brent has worked with several of the physicians we've recruited to the Wilmington area. He is consistently professional, helpful and diligent in making sure the loan process goes smoothly for our doctors. SunTrust is very supportive of the medical community and Brent is an excellent ambassador for his bank.
-K. Gresham, Wilmington, NC
Of all the mortgages I have been involved with, working with Brent was by far, the easiest and most efficient. He has surrounded himself with a very professional staff and has made himself very accessible especially for busy professionals. He is very easy to reach for questions and very prompt at returning my phone calls. His experience in the banking/mortgage industry proved very valuable in helping me navigate the residential mortgage options offered by SunTrust. If possible, all of my future lending will go through Brent and SunTrust.
