Bernard Davis

Mortgage Broker & Branch Manager,

South West Funding

Hiring a mortgage broker can help relieve some of the stress and loan-related questions when you’re buying a house, especially if you’re a first-time home buyer.

In my role as the middleman between borrowers and lenders, I can help you find a lender that meets your needs and financial requirements, such as a preference for a lower down payment or the best interest rate possible.


If you’re seeking a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or Veterans Affairs (VA) loan, for example, I am experienced in working with veterans, and I understand the requirements for FHA loans simplifying the process.

Variety is another benefit of working with brokers. Using a mortgage broker can help you find the right lender for your specific needs, especially if your situation in terms of your credit profile or the property is unusual.

Stephanie Findley

Board Vice Chair,

Findley Foundation

The Findley Foundation was founded by concerned individuals who work in the Construction, Finance, and Non-Profit; Political and Public Service Sectors. It was through the groups shared passion for economic development, education and assisting the community that they formed the Findley Foundation. In their discussions, they discovered that a key component of improving the economic quality of life for many— lies in the development of quality workforce solutions that provide a combination of work readiness training, soft skills, and financial literacy education. However, as the foundation members began to craft their mission and assess the needs of the community, they realized that many people were disadvantaged, unemployed, or underemployed because they didn’t have access to the supportive services they needed to acquire to sustain gainful employment.

Building lives, changing communities.
