Meet Our Team

The vision began with our founder and managing partner attempting to help residential clients obtain mortgage loans for single family housing purchases & refinances, both for primary & investment purposes. This transitioned to commercial lending within a couple of years, with a major concentration in church lending. Since our first closing in 2001, we have been blessed to originate & close more than $500 million in loans, having experienced success well beyond our original expectations! We remain committed to continuous improvement in the commercial mortgage business; thus, we look forward to adding to this figure, propelling G&M Mortgages Unlimited to consistently contend as a leading commercial mortgage real estate finance & advisory firm.
