The Family Mortgage Team


Partner, Senior Mortgage Banker, Branch Manager
NMLS 169951

Known for his “no nonsense” approach to the mortgage loan process, Scott established Family Mortgage of Georgia in 1999 based on the principle of educating clients on the benefits of viewing a home mortgage as a key to a healthy financial foundation. As a result, he has created a strong and supportive client base of over 2,500 homeowners who continue to seek his expert guidance on the mortgage process and the advantages of home ownership. Today in his new role as Mortgage Banker and Partner in LeaderOne Financial Corporation, he continues to utilize his 15 years experience and expertise to guide you through the numerous mortgage options to the exact combination that complements your overall financial plan.

A native of Buffalo, NY, Scott moved to Atlanta in 1989 to continue his career in commercial real estate asset management. In 2001, after opening his mortgage company, Scott was awarded the distinguished CCIM designation (Certified Commercial Investment Manager) and later achieved the CRMS designation (Certified Residential Mortgage Specialist) awarded by the National Association of Mortgage Brokers. Between 2003 and 2009, Scott was consistently listed in the top five “Top Gun” Mortgage Loan Originators in the State of Georgia by The Georgia Association of Mortgage Brokers; and since 2009 he has been listed in the Scotsman Guide Top Originators in the U.S., and received 3 Diamond Awards from the Mortgage Bankers Association.  He has also conquered 58 summits of the fifty-eight 14,000 foot mountains in Colorado—but that’s just a hobby 🙂


Business Development/Marketing Director

Jeanne joined Family Mortgage in 2001 to assist Scott with his fast growing company during a major refinance “boom.”  Within months her role grew to encompass office operations, marketing, accounting and HR. As a result, her “temporary job to help her husband out” became an opportunity to utilize her vast business background in commercial real estate, accounting and office management to create her new career in the mortgage industry, where she now happily serves as the LeaderOne Financial Corporation’s Georgia Branch Marketing Director and Business Development Specialist for The Family Mortgage Team. She also serves as Editor of “Family Secrets;” the Team Cheerleader… and her husband’s biggest fan.  Jeanne can be contacted @ Extension 223 or by email:
