Our primary mission is 100% satisfaction to our clients and referral partners of realtors, attorneys, financial advisors and accountants.  In order to achieve the highest level of service, Bryan has built his team on one small but significant concept:  Small kept promises. We do what we say we are going to do. This is how we have successfully built a business that is 99% referral based.

Communication is critical. Bryan and his team provide consistent weekly updates, extremely quick response times, knowledgeable answers, clear communication, and creative problem solving skills.

Branch Manager

My passion is growing and developing people. I love seeing people become the best part of themselves and if I can help them do that at work, then I’m inspired. I always want to lead by example and grow them by inspiring people to action. I love seeing what people can do by making them feel empowered to make decisions and trusting them to do so. I believe people (and especially our team), want to do what is right and good for everyone. People sometimes have bad days and sometimes bad periods in their lives but that is a time in which I believe in giving them some grace. My belief is that if people feel taken care of then they will feel inspired to take care of others which translates in to exceptional customer service among many other amazing qualities.

My background has been in management since 1996. I was extremely fortunate to work for some exceptional companies that put a lot of time into developing and training their employees. I had the opportunity to participate in a ton of leadership trainings and had excellent leadership to guide and teach me. I was hesitant to get into the mortgage business because it was completely outside of my comfort zone and I had no idea what I was doing. Since that time, I have come to see how rewarding and fortunate I have been to be a part of such an amazing industry. We actually get to help people through one of the hardest and most stressful stepping stones in their lives. I’m fortunate again to have the opportunity to work for another amazing company that supports and empowers their employees. It’s exciting to see our team guide and help over 200 families each year to get through the process!
