Welcome to my website

Hello!  My name is Bradley, and I am a senior loan officer in the Austin South office.  I have been helping borrowers obtain the dream of homeownership for the past 29 years.  Working at HomeTrust, a company that has been consistently and reliably lending for over 30 years, has been very rewarding.  I enjoy working directly with customers to navigate the ever-changing mortgage process.

I grew up in Dallas and attended North Texas University and Texas Christian University, where I received a BBA and master’s degrees respectively.  After graduation, I moved to Austin and have been here for 25 years.  I am married with one son.  Outside of the office, I am an avid model train collector and love visiting fabulous Las Vegas with all the great restaurants.
