Brandy Robinson
Gateway Mortgage Group
Mortgage Advisor
I help everyone achieve homeownership. Each person is unique and has a different goal. Whether that is buying a house tomorrow or getting on a plan, I can help. My passion is to help people achieve home ownership through education and financial discussions so that they will be in a better place down the road. It's not about just buying this one house; it's about how this one house plays into your future, your goals, etc. I proactively engage with my clients and their agents throughout the entire process and will literally be there with you every step of the way, including attending your closing (if you are local). If you are considering buying a home anytime in the future it is never too early to talk to a mortgage advisor. I would be honored to assist you.
