The Mortgage Atlanta Mission:
Launched in 2009 by a team of financial experts who are passionate about helping people realize their dreams, Mortgage Atlanta understands that no two homebuyers or homeowners are exactly the same. That’s why we seek first to get to know you and your needs on a granular level. Rather than merely meeting those needs, we exceed expectations by delivering customized, client-focused home finance experiences. Whether you are a first-time homebuyers eager to understand the loan process or a current homeowner seeking financing for a spectacular renovation to create the home of your dreams (or anyone in between), we welcome the opportunity to assist you – whatever your vision or place in your homeownership journey. With extensive knowledge of a wide variety of loan products and down payment assistance programs, the Mortgage Atlanta team offers you the innovation, flexibility and accessibility that only a boutique agency can provide. To that end, every Mortgage Atlanta loan specialist is available to address your questions and needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Believe it or not, but it all began with the word “NO!” Having served as a mortgage loan specialist for a large regional home loan provider, “no” was a word that I had to tell prospective clients all too often. Turning people away went against everything for which I stand for. So, I began to envision a place where “yes” was the common call as I helped people achieve their dreams of home ownership on a daily basis. Armed with a degree in Economics and Finance – with a minor in Law – from Bentley University, several years of mortgage loan experience and a vision, I struck out on his own in 2009 to launch Mortgage Atlanta, LLC. In the years since, I have surrounded myself with a team who shares my passion for helping others and together they have steadily grown a client list that spans the gap from first-time homebuyers to empty nesters seeking their forever home. Committed to never becoming like the “other guys” – merely passing clients through a confusing and convoluted series of loan processors, coordinators and closers, we or I endeavor to build authentic, personal relationships with the people I am or we serving, guiding them every step of the way throughout the loan process – from application to closing. I strive to stay ahead in my industry and I am a big believer in continuing education for the benefit of you, the client. A true master of my craft, Brian regularly employs innovation and explores every available avenue to customize loan options that will transform a client’s dream to a beautiful, life-changing reality.
Loan Processor/Office Manager
I’ve been with Mortgage Atlanta since April 2015. I am the Loan Processor/Office Manager and your point person during the loan process. My job is to make things as easy as possible for you while we work together to collect, review, and submit your documents throughout the loan process. I also gather items as needed from realtors, insurance agents, law firms, etc. I see my job as putting together your personal puzzle. I make sure each piece fits correctly so you get to see your beautiful new home and/or amazing financial savings at the end of the process. Before making my entrance into the mortgage industry, I served our country for 9 years as a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force. I also was a youth pastor, worked as an educator at a high school, and was a correctional officer. When I’m not working, I’m focusing on my faith, my family, and doing various outdoor activities when able. I look forward to assisting you throughout your loan process.
John has been handling the closings at Mortgage Atlanta since 2018. You’ll be introduced to him as your loan nears the finish line, when he works closely with you and your closing attorney to make sure your loan closes smoothly and on time. He brings 15+ years of mortgage and customer service experience to the team and will use every bit of it to make sure your closing goes perfectly!
When not at work he likes to visit breweries with his wife, Lindsey, and try new craft beers. He also gets out and plays team sports a few days a week, particularly curling and softball.
