About Briar

I’m a native of St. Petersburg, Florida, and I love the Florida lifestyle, such as fishing and spending time on the water. This beautiful state has so much to offer, and I can’t wait to help you make it your home, too. Communication is the key to a great homebuying experience, and I’m here to support you every step of the process.

Everyone’s financial situation is different, so I'll work closely with you to understand your unique needs and provide a tailored solution to achieve your goals. Together, we’ll explore a variety of products, go over the details of each option, and answer all your questions.

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments of your life, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to help you achieve homeownership.

Save on your mortgage every month

Say Bye-Bye PMI


Typically, when your down payment is less than 20%, you have to pay monthly private mortgage insurance (PMI).

CCM Bye-Bye PMI offers qualified borrowers a conventional mortgage for as little as 15% down without PMI. That’s monthly mortgage savings and a smaller down payment, giving you more purchasing power.

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.


  • The Mortgage Process

    There are some major milestones on your road to home financing. As your loan officer, I’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure you understand each one and get through them quickly.

  • Payment Calculator

    How much will your mortgage payment be? How much can you save if you refinance? Is it better to buy than rent? Use these online calculators to crunch the numbers and see for yourself.

  • Find the Right Loan

    I separate myself from other lenders by offering a broader selection of home financing options — from loans for first-time homebuyers to refinance programs for accessing your home’s equity.

  • Home Loan Check List

    Before you explore the endless options of home financing, some preparation is in order. Planning ahead for your mortgage is the key to an easier and more successful home financing process.
