Meet the Veteran Lending Council

Eric Ensley is a VA Loan Advisor with a Ross Mortgage. He is a Veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and has a heart for helping his fellow service members. When he is not teaching classes or writing loans, Eric can be found spending time with his wife and two young daughters.

As a founding member of the Veteran Lending Council, Matthew Stevens specializes in guerrilla marketing and social influence.  Hailing from a rural community instead of an urban area emphasizes this effectiveness across multiple states.  Matthew has a proven track record  of molding average loan officers into stronger producers.

Steve Brand is a grizzled "mortgage veteran" who cut his teeth in the MN and Western WI mortgage markets in 2001. He’s been a loan officer, sales manager & mortgage company owner. Few loan officers can bring as broad of a perspective to a transaction as Steve can.

Steve started his mission and passion to serve Veterans in 2011.  He continues to train Realtors and Loan Originators locally and around the country to better serve our Veterans needs and realize the American dream of Home-Ownership.
