Are you sick of excuses from lenders & banks? We are too!

We have built a No Excuse Process designed to provide a process that provides clear communication, great follow up and on time closings with no excuses. Let's meet the team that helps us execute the No Excuse Process.

Kevin Brierton - NMLS # 599873

Sr. Loan Consultant - Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist

I have been in mortgage banking since 2004. During this time, I have successfully helped more than 1,650 families with more than $500 Million in residential mortgages, placing me consistently among the top in the industry. I spend the 1st Friday of every month studying all of our products, guidelines, & lending criteria.

In addition, I work closely with our underwriting & secondary markets to fully understand all our mortgage products to ensure I am able to empower more families to gain homeownership. Our team of fully trained mortgage specialists has the attitude of “how can we make this loan work” rather than just assuming it won’t. Other Lenders find problems, we find solutions, and we are excited to find a solution for you & your Family!
