CUPERTINO, Calif., April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Opes Advisors is pleased to announce that Deanna Brand has joined the firm as a Sr. Mortgage Advisor in their Kirkland, Washington office. Deanna grew up in the mortgage industry working at the side of her father, Craig Brand, and has since built her own reputation for peerless client service in her 9 years as loan officer. Her motivation is passion for helping people achieve their dream of homeownership. With deep knowledge of the mortgage and real estate businesses, Brand is an insightful collaborator for clients and Realtors®.
Opes Advisors CEO Susan McHan said, "Deanna is known for exceptional service and she cares deeply about her clients. She is a consummate professional, trusted in the local real estate community. As a leader with enthusiasm and creativity that propel her team forward, Deanna is a perfect fit and we are thrilled she chose to join Opes."
A graduate of the University of Washington, Deanna earned Rookie of the Year with a large national banking firm and has been consistently recognized since for her leadership. Brand is active in her local community. Involvement with The International Rett Syndrome Foundation is near and dear to her heart. After her daughter's diagnosis with the disease, Brand says, "It changed my perspective on life as well as my career in mortgage lending. I have been blessed with her as my gift and that has helped me be more compassionate and empathetic in my work."
According to Brand, joining Opes Advisors was a simple decision because "our philosophies aligned. There was a warm feeling in my heart whenever I talked to anyone at Opes. Opes Advisors makes both customers and employees feel like we're part of a family, that we're not just another number. Because we aren't."
