Becky Brown started in the mortgage industry many years ago at Omaha Title Company. She had a wonderful mentor, Dee Cramer, who really taught her the ins and outs of title and closing loans, which lead her to pursue her career in the mortgage industry. Now with Mutual 1st Federal Credit Union, Becky’s main focus is to help members save money by refinancing their current homes or secure mortgages to purchase their first home. She offers conventional, FHA and VA loans.
