Brian Scott Cohen Wells Fargo Home Mortgage
Brooklyn, NY 11217
I can't say enough about Brian. We were first-time buyers in NYC, and had a very complicated co-op purchase. Brian was there holding our hands through the process. Brian is really an advocate for the buyer, and he was the only one really helping us deal with the lawyers and other parties that were complicating matters. He is extremely responsive by phone and email, and his turn-around time on processing paperwork kept it on the desks of other parties in the deal. His assistant was also on top of all of our paperwork. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious buyer and looking to work with a serious person who doesn't play games.
We used Brian during the purchase of our co-op in Manhattan. Brian is unbelievable -- extremely trustworthy, competent, fast. And he got us an unbelievable rate, better than anyone else we spoke to. Brian was the one person in the entire purchase process that we could truly trust. He helped us navigate the space, and move the process forward smoothly, acting as a liaison between us and brokers, lawyers, and co-op boards. He is also extremely responsive. He was the only person in our process who would actually check in with us to see if we needed any additional help to move the process forward. We cannot say enough good things about Brian. Thank you Brian for helping us purchase our new home!
Brian Scott is extremely efficient, knowledgeable about mortgages, thorough, has excellent customer support and communication skills. All members of his team were always on the same page; he always answered inquiries promptly by email. We just bought our first home, and he was very patient with us and all of our questions. Surprisingly, he was probably the most supportive person in the whole home-buying process; he seemed genuinely "on our side", and interested in us getting a good deal. Would gladly recommend him as a mortgage broker.

My wife and I just closed on our mortgage refinance with Brian at Wells Fargo and he was the best. Our original mortgage was with another bank but we went back to Brian for our refinance because we had such a positive experience with him when we shopped around for our original mortgage. He took a great deal of time with us before we even committed to go with Wells for our refi, walking us through the options and making sure we understood the closing costs and the process to getting a commitment.
Some brokers can give you the rush act and are not always the most respectful, but at every point I felt like we were being counseled by a real human being and someone who was not trying to score a quick buck off of us. Brian is thorough, fast, extremely hard working and always responsive--not to mention pleasant, courteous and respectful.
If this is your first time getting a mortgage, Brian will make the process easy, clear and comfortable for you; and if you're not new to the process, you will appreciate him nonetheless! I would quickly and enthusiastically recommend Brian to any friends and family.

I worked with Brian Scott Cohen at the Atlantic Avenue Wells Fargo Home Mortgage office in Brooklyn. Of all the people involved in my purchase of a DUMBO loft, Brian was the most responsive and worked the hardest. He responds to emails incredibly fast at all hours, and ultimately got me a rate significantly lower than the one I locked in. He made the process straightforward. I recommend him highly and would certainly use him again.

In purchasing a home I ran into an issue where I needed to prove that my offer was just as good as an all cash offer and essentially give a guarantee to the seller that I would close. I frantically reached out to a few mortgage brokers, and Brian was the first to call me back at 8pm on a Friday.
Brian was able to honestly tell me the chances of getting the mortgage and he clearly explained the different steps in the process. He understood I was a new home owner, and he was patient and extremely thorough. The most important thing was that Brian was able to secure the lowest rate out of the 4 companies I spoke to.
Brian was able to get the paperwork complete within two weeks. I can't express how thankful I am to have worked with Brian, and would recommend him to anyone!

Those of you looking for a mortgage broker, please make an appointment with Brian Scott Cohen as quickly as you can. Brian is fun, knowledgeable, efficient, fast and eminently helpful. Brian was like lightning with the pre-approval process, and stayed with me the entire way, through thick and thin, through paperwork blips (on my part) and the questions that arise during the normal course of obtaining a refinanced mortgage. Brian cares very much for his clients and works as hard as he can to obtain what they need. His response time to e-mail messages is amazing, and his patience with all of the steps and all of the questions along the way is also amazing. I too highly recommend Brian without reservation and wish to thank him greatly for his exceptional work and concern for his clients.
