About Brandy

I grew up here in Youngstown, Ohio, where I graduated from high school as a Poland Bulldog and went on to attend Youngstown State University. While I spent most of my career in retail management and leadership, I pivoted to mortgages in 2018 because I love helping the people in our community. What I enjoy most about this business is guiding clients like you toward the right financial solutions to make their homebuying dreams a reality.

When you work with me, I’ll provide an honest, upfront, and transparent approach to home financing. We’ll discuss your goals and circumstances – plus your available mortgage options – to make a plan that best matches your overall financial picture. You’ll always be in the know, with frequent loan status updates, education about each step between application and closing, and always being able to call with questions. I look forward to walking with you through your home financing journey.

When I’m free, I love spending time with my three children, being out in the community, spending time with friends, boating, and vacationing.

Owning a home is fun and fulfilling!

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.
