Brittani Gunnels

Loan Officer

RMLO NMLS# 1797711
Phone: 903-603-2492

I was born and raised in Cedar Creek Lake which is where my family and I still call home. My husband and I have 2 amazing children who have made me the definition of a “sports mom”.

I began my career in the finance industry in 2011. Although I have worn many hats, Mortgage lending is where I found my greatest passion. As a lender my goal is to educate others on the benefits of homeownership and how it is possible for everyone. When you have a lender who communicates efficiently, has integrity and believes in your dream, the process becomes an enjoyable and exciting experience. That’s exactly what I strive to do! Whether it’s your first home, forever home or your somewhere in between I will work diligently to make your goals a reality.
