“Back in the 90s, there was the notion and movement called “Promise Keepers”. The idea was that the mark of a real man was his steadfastness in keeping his word and honoring his promises. These days, isn’t it hard to find men that truly excel at this. I can think of only a few people who really stand out in my mind as promise keepers, and Brian is one of them. Brian has a lot of strengths. He’s a natural leader and a great teacher. He has excellent presentation skills. He’s great at providing service to whoever his “customers” are, and he always gives his all to being the best he can be at what he does. But when I think of Brian, the strength that stands out in my mind is the content of his character. I know that I can trust him. That’s just not something you can say about every mortgage lender out there. I would recommend him to anyone because I know he would treat them fairly and with honesty.” July 10, 2008

Marvin Palmer , Data Analyst / Programmer , Vanderbilt University Medical Center , Nashville, TN

“Brian is one of the most conscientious people I know. He secured three different mortgages for me. Two of them were out-of-the-box. He applied tremendous creativity and persistence to both projects. He is very easy to get along with. He is a delight to work with. He has since become a true friend. I would use him again in a heartbeat.” July 10, 2008

“I have known Brian for about 5 years as of the date of this writing. Through our association at the Franklin Chapter of BNI, I had many occasions to learn about his business and how he operated it. I found that the name of his business, Integrity Mortgage, could not have more accurately described how he conducted himself with his clients. I would not hesitate one bit to refer someone to Brian as I know that he would never put someone in a mortgage that was not perfectly suited for their person situation.”  July 10, 2008

“Brian was always pleasant and diligent to take care of his clients’ needs. His clients were always happy at closing and pleased with the process. I am happy to recommend him as someone with integrity who truly cares that his clients be served well, and as someone who is a pleasure to work with. Margaret Smith” July 10, 2008

“I have known Brian Short for over 30 years. Through this time, we have been colleagues, friends, and business partners. After Brian’s overseas employment, he came to Leader as a new loan consultant. Brian possesses a will to work with great attention to detail while at the same time puts his customer first in all that he does. He quickly became one of our best branch managers. I was sorry to see him leave my company (we really needed him) but thrilled that he was branching out on his own. As we stayed in contact over the past few years, it was obvious that running a company was also in his skill set. I highly recommend Brian for his work ethic and his ability to plan and execute a plan.” July 18, 2008
