Brandon started in the mortgage business straight out of college where he graduated with a finance degree from Indiana University in 2001. During his time in this industry he has seen many changes and has watched as mortgage companies come and go as these changes evolved. All of these changes led Brandon and a close group of co-workers to take a leap of faith and help launch First Option Mortgage in the Indianapolis market in 2006. Changes were still occurring in the industry, but the one constant was First Option Mortgage’s success with the ability to adapt to change and foresee future evolutions to the industry. As Brandon’s experience grew with First Option so did his desire to manage the branch. In April 2010 Brandon was promoted to Assistant Manager where he helped lead the branch to greater successes and by October 2011 Brandon became the Branch Manager of the Indianapolis office. Customer service is his passion and leading his team with this focus is what has kept First Option Mortgage on the leading edge of sustainability in an ever changing industry.
