Get to Know Our Team -- Personally!
Director, Residential Mortgage Lending
Brett has been a leader in the region's mortgage industry for more than three decades, working both as a bank mortgage department director and consultant to financial institutions before operating his own mortgage company for 22 years. Eager to serve customers with the expanded loan capacity and resources available at Hyperion Bank, and sharing our commitment to excellent customer service, Brett joined our team in March 2018.

Highly knowledgeable about every aspect of residential financing, including purchase and refinance loans, Brett shares his expertise with consumers to help them get the loans they need and have a smooth closing process. His goal is to offer a competitive array of fixed and adjustable rate mortgage loans, listen to each customer's individual needs, and guide home-buyers to the loan that best matches their short and long-term financial goals.

Brett is also a Faculty Member of the prestigious Temple University Real Estate Institute, where since 1994 he has educated real estate salespersons, investors, developers, and consumers about topics in residential financing and funding strategies. Dedicated to consumer education, Brett takes the time to ensure that his customers fully understand their options and the mortgage process. He is particularly experienced in assisting first-time home-buyers, and has served as a volunteer mortgage advisor to Habitat for Humanity.

“Education is so important to the mortgage process, and it's the piece many people miss if they only use 'robot mortgage' tools," says Brett. "With our technology, you don't have to sacrifice knowledge for speed. We offer the same quick-mortgage programs, with the benefit of human expertise and an experienced person to guide you through every step. I am passionate about delivering an exceptional experience and take great pride in the relationships I've built with new and repeat customers over 30 years. When you are making what may be the largest purchase in your life--a new home--there is simply no substitute for knowledge, experience, and very personal, high quality service."

Brett grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, and attended both the Ogontz (now Abington) and State College campuses of The Pennsylvania State University. He and his wife raised two daughters and a son in Abington Township, PA. Brett enjoys basketball, cycling, running, kayaking, and the Jersey Shore. He is looking forward to the next Eagles Super Bowl Championship.

Fun Fact: Brett still plays basketball with old friends from Philadelphia's Solis-Cohen Elementary School, Max Myers Playground, Northeast High School (where he followed his father on the varsity team), Penn State Ogontz, and Klein JCC. To share b-ball stories:  Email Brett .

Shopping for a home this spring? Contact us for your pre-approval!

Spring is a popular time to shop for a new home, but this year the supply of houses in the Philadelphia market and across America is limited. We can help you know how much home you can afford and strengthen your offer with a mortgage pre-approval, to take the guesswork out of certain home-buying decisions. It's a good idea to understand the mortgage process before you start shopping, particularly if you are a first-time home-buyer.

Do you know someone buying a home? We will take good care of anyone you refer to us...and remember, Hyperion Bank can help you with mortgages for residential properties in PA, NJ, FL, or anywhere in the U.S.A.!
