Chief operations officer
American Financial Resources 

Laura Brandao joined the wholesale and correspondent division at American Financial Resources in 2007. There, she’s responsible for processing, underwriting, closing and post-closing activities. She also serves on the executive committee and is critical to the development and implementation of the company’s quality control procedures. 

Brandao’s strengths include inspiring AFR staff to keep the loan process focused on the families behind each transaction. Brandao was made a partner in 2009 and is a key player in the formation, development and growth of AFR’s B2B division. Outside of her duties at AFR, Brandao is active with several nonprofits – she even co-founded ExpressionsNJ, an arts and theater nonprofit aimed at providing a safe environment for people of all ages to express themselves through the arts.
