Bryan focuses on listening to understand what clients want in a home as it is critical to finding the right home. He regularly communicates needed information promptly - and in a style and manner that best suits every individual. His 16+ years of mortgage lending expertise are a game changer for his clients. He can help prepare clients with an armory of questions to present to their lender to be more specific with their purpose. He brings a calming approach of knowledge from his years in the lending world, which can all be overwhelming when someone is buying their new home. His ability to easily explain the process to his clients allows them to understand the complex process and feel more at ease to know that he always has their best interest at heart and will fight for them. He strives to ensure a smooth transaction for all parties but most importantly his clients. He believes in what he does and believes in his clients.
When he is not working, or with his family and friends, you may run into Bryan in the community. He likes to volunteer supporting his favorite local worthy causes such as the ASPCA. He loves visiting Farmers Markets and thrift stores as well to see what treasures he can run across. In September you can usually find Bryan either volunteering or participating in the 911 5k in Arlington. His love of animals has lead him to also start to volunteer with local shelters to visit the animals waiting for their forever home to make sure they feel loved until their new forever family comes along to swoop them up.
Bryan grew up close to family in a very small town just before the VA/NC line. One of his favorite memories is of the reunions they held on the farm. Everyone was there from the young to the old and all having a great time either in the kitchen cooking and laughing telling stories or kids out running through the fields playing hide and seek or just chasing the chickens through the yard until dark. He truly believes that remembering where you come from gets you to where you want to go and reaching all of your achievements throughout life. He prides himself on bringing that small town feel to you with a big city expectation which makes him the perfect fit to seal the deal and get in and get things done. Don’t let his “twang” fool you though, he knows how to get it all done and put the positive spin on just about anything. He is a true believer in the saying, Live, Love and Laugh. It just makes everything better and makes life a much easier and happier place for us to all get along.

What does Bryan love about Northern Virginia: I actually love how this is such a busy place to live and work and everyone loves pets. The hustle and bustle of everyone is what amazes me that almost everywhere I have gone I see water bowls out for the dogs and so many people have them, I LOVE IT. I love the culture of being near everything you need. For me, it is like living in NY coming from such a small area. It has opened my eyes as well as given me a new respect for the natives that’s for sure. It’s a hard life, meaning everything moves so fast and always changing which is motivating to keep me wanting to strive to always do better.
