Karin was always available 24/7 to answer any questions we had and Brian very very knowledgeable and never held back to explain every step of the way. Without a doubt I will always refer them to anyone who is planning to buy a home. You will not be disappointed.

Hello, my experience with this company has been nothing less than perfect. Showcase agency was there for me whenever I needed any questions about my purchase and using my VA Loan. Brian and Karen are some of the most down to earth people I know and did everything possible to make every part of the loan and purchase of my property easy and understandable.

Showcase Agency went above and beyond my expectations. Everything was very easy to understand, the online platform was incredibly user friendly, videos were included with emails to explain what was needed. Nothing about buying a home is easy, but Showcase honestly made the whole process easy and really put my mind at ease. Brian is such a kind person and really cared about me as a client! Would absolutely 100% recommend!

Working with Brian and Karin has been great! They make the process of finding a house and financing a house simple. Their service goes beyond a client level to making you feel as part of a family. They put care into their service and they pay attention to details on behalf of those who they are serving. Brian and Karin's character is unmatched. They are honest, faithful, trustworthy, great work ethic, and they know how to finish what they have started. In addition, they informed us and helped us in refinancing our house to obtain a lower interest rate. I have yet to meet and work with a team that brings great qualities to the table as does Brian and Karin. We love them and they are a part of our family!

by Hugo Zepeda-Hine

I had the pleasure of getting to have Karin be my real estate agent when looking for my first house (Condo). She is very hard working and did all she could to help us find a place that was ideal for my family. She took her time with everything to make sure it was done correctly and was always on track. As a first time buyer, she explained everything in the best way for me and my family to understand. A bonus was Karin being able to explain everything to my mom in Spanish . I recommend Showcase Agency to anyone buying or selling their house. Karin and Brian are amazing real estate agents and even more amazing people.

by Catherine Zane

Very lovely people that are willing to work with you through the whole process.

by Fernando Lopez

I am so lucky that I had Brian and Karin by my side for my first home purchase. It was an extremely smooth process- they dealt with all the hiccups that came up and helped me verify what was best in each scenario. Communication was awesome and they were so great about explaining anything that I was not certain about. There was not one time where I felt that I was being pushed into something nor did I feel like they were self-interested. I am extremely excited to be in my new home and I couldn't be more thankful to Brian and Karin for assisting me to get to this point. I would continue to recommend them over and over.

by Denisse De Los Reyes

Tremendous, personal service and quality work. I would highly recommend Karin and Brian Smith of Showcase Agency to anyone who’s looking for a mortgage broker. We couldn’t be happier with their work.

by Joe & Jennifer Sambito

We entered the market as first-time home buyers with no knowledge of the real estate world and naturally, we were unfamiliar with the process. From start to finish, Brian Smith walked us through the lending process in a very thorough and detailed manner. He kept constant communication, provided both professional and personal guidance, advice and encouragement. He was flawless in the management of our loan and was able to explain the most intricate nuances of the mortgage process. Brian was extremely responsive and provided follow up on all our concerns at any hour of the day. He answered all our questions, sometimes multiple times (because I didn’t always understand the answer the first time), no matter how big or small. Aside from answering a million questions, Brian took time to explain each phase, the intricacies, the details, the necessary steps to keep us informed and on track. He demystified the home buying and loan process and demonstrated patience and integrity throughout. Through Brian, the whole financing process went very smoothly, and was able to “close” our loan exceptionally quickly and efficiently. Brian is an absolute professional and a valuable piece of our home buying experience. We are truly grateful to find someone who acts on their clients’ behalf. Through the process, Brian has become a trusted broker and friend. We wholeheartedly recommend Brian and Karin from Showcase Agency!
