    Lou Ann Bransford provided excellent service from start to finish of the loan process. Ms. Bransford’s knowledge and experience gave us confidence in the process. We would recommend Ms. Bransford to others in seeking a mortgage loan.

    I have bought 2 homes thru her. As a single mom, with not so great credit, she helped me thru the process with understanding and compassion. She got me a great interest rate too! I recommend her to everyone.

    Alma George

    Lou Ann Bransford recently assisted us in purchasing a home. Throughout the entire process, Lou Ann kept us informed and answered all of our questions. Her assistance was invaluable. She worked tirelessly to provide us with step by step answers and was always available to help us. Lou Ann’s cheerful, positive attitude made us feel comfortable and confident. We would highly recommend Lou Ann to any family interested in purchasing a home.

    Judith A Lynch

    We have called Lou Ann and Randall all three times that we have purchased a home. They have been so helpful and knowledgeable that we couldn’t imagine going through the home buying process without them.

    Brandy DeFore

    Lou Ann helped me from the very beginning of my house hunting journey. She answered all of my questions, explained things thoroughly and has the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE that I have ever experienced in ANY field!!! She really WORKS HARD for YOU and has YOUR BEST INTERESTS in mind! Buying a home can be an overwhelming process but, with Lou Ann’s knowledge and helpfulness, I was comfortable that I was in good hands. I would recommend Lou Ann Bransford in a heart beat for anyone’s Mortgage needs!

    LeaAnn Johnson

    Lou Ann is an absolutely amazing person to work with. She worked very diligently and made sure we were always “in the loop” when it came to the status of our loan application. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home!

    Amber Kilpatrick

    On Thursday September 15th 2016 I had my 1st closing with Lou Ann Bransford at Anderson County Abstract Office. This was 1 of the smoothest closings I’ve ever had. I represented the sellers, but I was in attendance with the buyers and the buyers’ agent that day. All went very well.  I would definitely recommend Lou Ann to other buyers in the future. Thank you Lou Ann for all the work you did to get the home closed. Thanks again.

    George McIntyre

    I cannot give enough praise for Lou Ann Bransford! I am so thankful that she was there every step of the way for us. As first time home buyers, you are scared and excited at the same time. Lou Ann was there to always answer questions and did it in a very caring and understanding way. I even learned things outside of home buying that could help me!! All in all, she is fantastic and I would recommend and use her in the future! God Bless 🙂

    Myranda DelPrincipe

    From the very beginning, Lou was very helpful and transparent about the options we had as new first time home buyers. She explains everything in fantastic and easy to understand details. The information she shared with me and the countless questions I had BEFORE we found a home were plentiful and she never once seemed annoyed that I was annoying her!

    Andrew Del Principe

    Lou Ann was a pleasure to work with. As an agent in this transaction, I was highly pleased with her knowledge of the industry and her constant communication! She always called or emailed us first with updates or replied the same day!

    Brandy Williamson

    Lou Ann exhibited great patience in our four month long struggle to close on our home. She always kept the lines of communication open and was available at any hour to answer our questions. In mid-stream we had to change the type of loan application from conventional to FHA and Lou Ann walked us through every step of the way. We couldn’t get a conventional appraiser to accept the second appraisal request, so Lou Ann suggested going with an FHA loan that would require a different group of appraisers. This also resulted in a lower interest rate for us. Her years of experience became a great asset for us. Always prompt to return phone calls and always patient to answer our questions. We couldn’t have had a better experience than the one we had working with Lou Ann. We would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

    Bob & Ruth Ann Spangler

    We were extremely pleased with the mortgage service Lou Ann provided us to purchase our home. She was great in keeping us apprised of “next steps” in our process. She communicated frequently and helped us understand each form. We are excited to have our new farm and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase/finance a home.

    Terri Iles

    Ever cheerful, always available, when I needed a bit of hand-holding, Lou Ann walked me through the whole scary process of buying my first home. Before I knew it, I had the keys of my new home in my hand, and tears of gratitude in my eyes.
    My first home! I did it—we did it—together.

    Amber Brock

    Fabulous lender to work with. Weekly updates. Closed on time and we are talking with a mobile home. Not to mention a lovely lady !

    Sandy Burns

    Lou Ann was absolutely wonderful to work with! We had found a home that we loved and we wanted to do a VA loan, but all the other mortgage lenders were unable to help us as it was a manufactured home.!  Lou Ann did all the leg work for us and kept us in the loop throughout the whole process, so we always knew what was going on. We have now closed on our new home, which would not have been possible without Lou Ann!


    Lou Ann did an outstanding job for my client who was not only VA but was also purchasing a manufactured home. Her knowledge and expertise in her field is commendable. I would highly recommend her services to anyone regardless of the type of financing they need.

    Andrea Brown

    In my 30 years of working in this industry, I’ve yet to find anyone that can match Lou Ann Bransford and the service she provides to our clients. Her ability to search the best avenue for the consumer, go above and beyond by helping with credit issues, staying in constant touch with the buyers, and always keeping me in the loop is the perfect partnership for success. I have worked with this company exclusively and highly recommend Lou Ann for her utmost integrity and for making a difference in the life of others.

    Carolyn Tumlinson

    Lou Ann helped me and my wife with the purchase of our first home. Obviously, we had a million questions along the way but she never once hesitated to help us out with anything we did not fully understand. I definitely appreciate everything she did for my family.

    John Porter

    She was very professional working several hours late if necessary. Lou Ann was very informative with every step of the process and kept us up to date with each part. Her honesty was very refreshing as was her attitude toward her customers and her work. We enjoyed working with her.

    Rebecca Irby

    Lou Ann is wonderful!! She helped me purchase my dream home and I am in love with it. When times got tough Lou Ann never gave up, and she helped me stay positive when I felt like giving up. Thanks to her I am able to brng my children up in a place they can always call home.

    Melissa Jackson

    Lou Ann Bransford has been our go to mortgage lender for almost a decade.
    She is highly professional; diligent, knowledgeable, experienced and ethical, in her work.
    We recommend her to our clients often and they are always impressed with her performance

    John & Linda Drake

    Lou Ann Bransford is amazing! She found us a mortgage when no one else could. She is professional, friendly and helpful. She is always quick to respond to any questions. She is a delight to work with. I highly recommend her.

    R. J. Auld

    I have been a Realtor since 1985. I have done a lot of business with Lou Ann Bransford for a large part of that time. She is absolutely wonderful for work with. She is very easy to talk with and will answer any and all questions. I really loved being able to send my customers to her to be prequalified when first beginning to look at property. That way I was not taking folks to look at property they were not qualified to purchase. She always had time for me. I really like how she kept me informed during the entire process, from getting the contract up to the last second before closing the transaction. She stayed on top of things and kept the paper work moving without snags. If a problem popped up she always got things worked out and we stayed on track. I never did NOT close any transaction that I started with her. She is very sweet and wonderful at her job. She is top notch in my book. I would recommend her under any circumstances. I think she can do anything. Anybody in my profession that I knew that had the opportunity to work with Lou Ann really liked her. We all had the utmost respect for her and her ability. All of my Brokers liked her as well. We all called on her every chance we got. We all knew if we had her on the job, things would get done and done correctly. Quickly as well. She just knows how to make things happen. Absolutely a “dream” to work with.

    Barbara S. Clayton

    Lou Ann made the whole process a lot less painful. She was very helpful in letting us know what to expect and what documents we had to get together. Her knowledge made the process faster and smoother. She also gave us options that we would have otherwise not known about. She even suggested some real estate agents to work with. We were very thankful to have her in our corner. Thank you.

    The Haydons

    I have worked with Lou Ann Bransford for many years. She is one of the best mortgage lenders that I have ever used. She cares about the customers and helps them in any way she can to understand the process, correct problems and get them into their properties. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my clients.

    Jo Bennett

    I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Lou Ann. She helped me with buying my home and is always helpful to me as a Realtor. I have recommended her to my customers and clients numerous times and will continue to do so. She is very knowledgeable with the different loan types and options and is always quick to respond when I need an answer. I will be contacting her when I decide to buy my next home.


    Lou Ann made homeownership a reality for me and my two children. As a single parent, acquiring a home was a dream come true for me and my kids. With the professional services of Lou Ann Bransford and her staff, I was able to provide a stable foundation for my family. I am so thankful for her knowledge and her caring spirit! Thanks Lou Ann!!!

    Monica Lewis

    Lou Ann helped my husband and I buy our first home, and then 8 years later buy our second. She did everything she could to get the process done quickly and make sure I knew what I was getting into. Every document that was signed, she explained to me. As a 19 year old first time home buyer, the process was scary and confusing. Lou Ann made me feel at ease. When it is time for me to move on from this home, I will be contacting her again!

    Traci Houston

    Lou Ann made the purchase of our new home pain-free! She is extremely knowledgeable in the mortgage loan process, and very easy to work with. She made me feel at ease from the first conversation we had all the way thru to the congratulatory call we received after closing. I can’t say enough good things about Lou Ann – if you are going to need financing for a new home, she is the person you need to contact!
