Senior Mortgage Advisor
As Senior Loan Originator, Bret Close works to align clients with the ideal loan for their needs and, along with his team, follows each loan from start to close to ensure a seamless process. An experienced loan professional, Bret has been serving in the mortgage industry since 2003. After a 15-year career as a beloved teacher and coach at Mustang High School, Bret ventured into a successful career in the mortgage industry, earning accolades including Cornerstone Top Producing Loan Officer in 2018.
Bret loves what he does because he and his team get to help make dreams come true for families who put their trust in them. Known for being honest and caring, Bret truly cares for those he is fortunate to work with and says the common thread among himself and his team members is they always do what they say they will.
Outside of work, Bret enjoys spending time with his friends and family. “It’s more important who I’m with than what we’re doing,” he says.
