About Brandon

Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, I moved to Columbus, Ohio, where I found a love for Ohio State football. I now live in Wayne County with my wife, Rebecca, and our five children. I served in the U.S. Army as an Infantry Soldier for nine years before being honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant in 2010. After my Military commitment, I got involved in home financing and have been a licensed loan originator since 2011. This personal commitment and desire to help others led to recognition by Mortgage Executive Magazine as a Top 1% Mortgage Originator in America.

But how did I earn this achievement? From first-time homebuyers to long-time homeowners, I simplify home financing for people. I’ll take the time to walk you through the mortgage process, answer your questions and concerns, and keep you up to date on your loan’s status. Communication promotes confidence – and I want you to feel confident every step of the way.
