In an industry where many lenders are trying to perfect the home lending experience through automation, The Mortgage Firm has worked hard to strike a balance that sets them apart. Ranked by social survey for being in the top 10 for customer satisfaction in the United States, the firm provides the personalized service required to help guide home buyers to the closing table, while also working with technology to leverage business and keep real estate partners informed. As a 23-year-old, Florida-based home lending company, its focus has remained on accessibility, communication and closing. With four locations in Brevard and even more expansion ahead, The Mortgage Firm has solidified its reputation for simplifying the entire lending process to get to closing. 

“We’re three distinct personalities working together with a common goal of supporting Brevard County real estate agents, their clients and other industry partners,” explained Christopher Goodman, branch manager of the West Melbourne location.

Originally from New York, Goodman’s appreciation for the beauty of real estate in Florida, along with a passion for finance and people, led him directly into home lending in the region. He relocated to Brevard in 2006 as a loan officer, joining The Mortgage Firm in 2017. “The way we do things are aligned with my personal goals of helping the people I work with,” he said. 

Christine Danielson, manager of the Melbourne and Melbourne Beach branches, is originally from Colorado but moved to Cocoa Beach in 1994. Beginning her financial career in 2002 as a loan processor, she joined The Mortgage Firm in 2010, opening the Melbourne branch in 2013. She has been rated in the top 100 of loan originators in the U.S.  

Viera/Suntree Branch Manager Sarah Hidy began her career at 17. “Right away, I fell in love with the whole mortgage process,” Hidy said. She has been ranked among the top 50 mortgage loan originators in customer satisfaction out of 22,000 loan officers in the country and recently became the second highest female producer nationwide within the company.
