Brian began his mortgage career in 1996 as a loan processor and has been a Loan Officer, a Vice President/Branch Manager, a Regional Net Branch Manager, a mortgage litigation consultant, Director of Mortgage Lending and now, a Senior Loan Officer for Nova Home Loans. He has closed over 4000 loans in his career and through providing clarity, confidence, and effective communication, has enabled more than 2500 families to turn a house into a home.
Brian understands while the numbers are important, a home is at its core, a place to be a family. For that reason, buying a home is an emotional experience. The home represents a family’s hopes and dreams for the future and the process requires uncommon expertise to help families turn those dreams into reality. That’s why his personal slogan has been “Your Dreams, My Expertise” for many years.
Brian has a bachelor’s degree in business and theology, he has been married to the same wonderful woman since 1989, has a lovely daughter and all of them enjoy traveling anywhere at any time for any reason!
