About Me

Thank you for considering my services. As someone who understands that the process of qualifying for a home loan is deeply personal, let me introduce myself. I have been working in the mortgage industry since 1984. I have extensive knowledge in all areas of mortgage financing, which allows me to determine the best program to fit your needs. While working with me you will find that I offer sound and straightforward guidance to help determine which program will best suit you and your family's needs. With my experienced team on your side, we make the process easy and hassle-free.

I was born and raised in Southern California and was heavily involved in athletics. I went to school at Brigham Young University on a football scholarship, enjoyed an All-American career, and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Business Management with a concentration in Finance. After college, I was drafted by the Denver Broncos and also played for the Atlanta Falcons. Upon leaving the NFL, I pursued a career in finance and found my way into the mortgage industry where I met my wife, Kelley Sanders. My partner in business and partner in life. Together we run the local White Mountains Branch for Guild Mortgage and have lived in the White Mountains for since 2006. We have 4 children between us and 8 grandchildren. When I am not passionately working on client's mortgages, you will find me camping, hiking, atv-ing, scuba diving, watching football, spoiling my grandchildren, or spending quality time with my family and friends.

I thoroughly enjoy the work that I do and I strive to make raving fans with each and every transaction. It is my goal to be YOUR lender for life! I look forward to helping you, please feel free to reach out to me anytime.

Clay helped me in financing a manufactured home in 2022. It was difficult for me to prove my income as I was furlogh from my job while Covid. The house value was higher than the Mortgage aproval. My realtor John Golden and Clay Brown made it possible for me to own now a beautiful Manufactured house with 4 acres of land well water septic electricity and a beautiful view.
