About Me

The Gifford Team was formed in 2009 by Shayla Gifford and Lynette Bonnett. Over the years, Shayla and Lynette have grown this dynamic sales team.

They work closely behind the scenes with the best operations staff from processing to funding. It takes a village to close a loan and The Gifford Team is dedicated to helping their clients find the right program that compliments their financial goals.

Since 2009, the team has helped more than 5,000 families totaling more than $1 billion in closed sales. They love what we do and the clients they serve, which is also a reflection of The Gifford Team ranking in the top 1% of originators nationwide per The Scotsman Guide and Mortgage Executive Magazine top originator 2020 reports.
