Brent Aldridge is a licensed residential Mortgage Loan Officer with over 20 years of mortgage lending experience. He is recognized for his commitment to delivering top notch financial advice and customer service to all of his clients, business partners, family and friends!
"My relationship with my clients is very important to me. I know that they have a choice of who they do business with...so my goal is to show them how their mortgage fits in their overall financial plan. Whether it be for purchase, refinance, or new construction...the mortgage process can seem complex and daunting, so I make sure to carefully lay out the steps along the way, and make sure all of my client's questions are answered. There is no bigger compliment when a client comes back for financial advice or their next loan, and refers family or friends to you...which is the largest part of my business!"

The Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce
At the Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce, we know you want to be a connected, confident business leader who makes a difference in your business, your families, and your community. In order to do that, you need to grow your business, increase your revenue, and develop stronger connections throughout the community. The problem is growing a successful business is hard, which makes you feel exhausted, defeated, and alone.
We believe it’s just plain wrong that you don't have all the support you need. You deserve to have the resources you need to lead a successful and growing business.
We understand how hard it is to grow a business. After all, no one tells you all you need to do to make it a success. There is no magic formula, and hard work alone will only take you so far. This is why for nearly 70 years and with our 500 current members, we help local businesses survive and thrive with our three core offerings/services: First, we advocate for pro-businesses policies at every level of government. Second, we connect you to the resources you need to have and the people you need to know in the community. Third, we educate and equip you with the best business practices and changing dynamics that you need to grow your business (your team and your profits).
So, join the Chamber today!
You can stop trying the next new thing only to be disappointed and instead you can be supported and part of a dynamic business community as a successful and growing business leader.
