Brent Edwards

NMLS #: 131432

Brent Edwards is the Branch Manager for the Metairie office of Assurance Financial.

Edwards started in the mortgage business in 1996 and over the years has helped thousands of individuals purchase a home or save money through refinancing.

“New Orleans is a cosmopolitan city, made up of many small neighborhoods each with a style and charm all their own,” Edwards says. “Growing up in New Orleans has given me an in-depth view of the nuances of the neighborhoods and of the local real estate market.”

Edwards says his goal is to help his clients with the knowledge he’s obtained through experience. He is constantly searching for better loan products that will help his clients obtain their dream home or invest in real estate for their future. An in-depth knowledge of the city, nearly 20 years of experience in the mortgage business, and excellent service sets Edwards apart from other lenders.

“I answer the phone when it rings, and do not promise something that I can’t deliver,” he says. “Assurance Financial has given me the products I need to help my clients secure the financing they need to purchase, renovate or build their home or investment property. I look forward to continuing my career helping people buy real estate in our very unique and wonderful city. Together with Assurance Financial, I can provide you with the experience, products, and service you need for a successful transaction on your real estate purchase or refinance.”
