Brian is great, he is incredibly efficient and responsive. My girlfriend and I found a condo we loved, but weren't pre-approved for a mortgage; Brian got us pre-approval in under 24 hours. I've never dealt with anyone who is as quick to reply to an email. Futhermore, I appreciate that during the buying process, Brian makes you a part of his team, my girlfriend and I felt included and in the loop from pre-approval through closing. I highly recommend Brian, he made the entire mortgage process stress-free and easy.

Brian is great, he is incredibly efficient and responsive. My fiance and I found a condo we loved, but weren't pre-approved for a mortgage; Brian got us pre-approval in under 24 hours. I've never dealt with anyone who is as quick to reply to an email. Without the effort of Brian and his staff, it's safe to say we wouldn't own our new condo. Futhermore, I appreciate that during the buying process, Brian makes you a part of his team, my fiance and I felt included and in the loop from pre-approval through closing. I highly recommend Brian, he made the entire mortgage process stress-free and easy.

Brian is very responsive, proactive, and thinks creatively on ways he can help the financing process. These things really set him apart and make him the ideal person to work with given that I am a busy professional (like so many others out there) who has limited bandwidth to spend on this type of thing. This is why Brian's responsiveness and proactive nature are so key. Also, the other members of his team are likewise very responsive, courteous and great to work with. I've worked with Brian on at least three or four refinancings on three different properties over the past few years, and his ability to be consistently excellent across these various projects also sets him apart.

Did a great job walking us through the mortgage process for a large home in a very competitive and aggressive house market. After learning about a number of options for first time home buyers, Brian ensured we ended up with a great great mortgage package.

Brian was consistently ready, and willing, to provide personalized advice and guidance; his knowledge and perspective were critical to our ultimate home-buying and financing decisions. Regardless of the time of day, Brian was readily available throughout the entire purchasing process to answer any questions (including while he was on vacation!)

I would recommend Brian to anyone interested in purchasing a first-time or second property- I can't say enough about how impressed I was with his responsiveness, knowledge and overall professionalism. This was my first property, I did not have a real estate broker and have a very busy life- Brian walked me through each step, kept me on track, took my future/realistic payments into consideration and helped me make smart decisions regarding my financing. He really does work for you in every sense of the word. Not only did he walk me through the financing process and help me obtain the best quote out there, but he always looked out for me in regard to negotiations and provided priceless advice. Purchasing a home as a single person/first-time homebuyer in Boston is not an easy task; I thank Brian for helping to ensure my future.

Brian came through for us in big way- from start to finish he walked us through the process and made it much less intimidating. I am surprised and happy to say that getting our mortgage through Brian was by far the easiest part of buying a house for us.

Brian helped my family with our home purchase loan and was absolutely fantastic to work with. First and foremost, he was always extremely responsive, available at all times and immediately returning all calls and emails. This really helped us feel like he was on top of our file and that our loan was a priority for him. He was always very respectful and pleasant to work. His knowledge base and skill at navigating the home buying process was outstanding. He was always a step ahead and anticipated every possible issue along the way. He was always very honest and upfront from the moment we first spoke. He was able to give me an initial cost estimate that was very accurate, follwed by a GFE that was slightly less, and closing costs that were ultimately even slightly less than the GFE. We closed on our loan in less than 30 days without a single bump in the road and we are very grateful for the help we received from Brian and his team (which consists of many other extremely helpful people who also operated with similar qualities, including and espescially Melissa, who was our loan processor)

Overall, in what can be a stressful and overwhelming process, Brian felt like a true buyers' advocate, and we will definitely work with him again in the future.

I found Brian through my work colleagues and otherwise have no personal connection to him - I just really appreciate good, honest service and think it should be acknowledged. I'd be more than happy to elaborate on my positive experience with anyone interested.

After some issues with our home buying process, we were dumped into the laps of RMS (specifically Brian Cavanaugh).

The team (especially Melissa) worked diligently and quickly to collect all of our materials, get us into a more suited loan, underwritten and ready to close within three to four weeks. They were amazing- a true "go to" team!

Brian was extremely knowledgeable, professional and low pressure. I could tell he felt comfortable with his "product" and that he felt comfortable with me making an informed decision. I have bought and refinanced several homes and have advanced business degrees. I know how to calculate my monthly payment once I have a rate quote. I know how to calculate how much I can afford, based on typical lender standards. I come away disappointed from many financing/refinancing interactions. Although I am pretty knowledgeable, Brian was able to provide specific information relative to the town where this particular refinancing was focused. I have already given Brian's name to a real estate friend and to a couple that will be relocating to the Boston area this Summer.
