As part of his commitment to making homeownership accessible to as many people as possible, Brandon’s company Carrero Mortgage Advisors is a certified lender with Miami Dade County Affordable Homeownership Program called Public Housing and Community Development. The program encourages first-time homeowners to seek assistance and obtain a mortgage loan subsidy through the County’s loan program. Although the applicants have to qualify under CDBG, HOME, SHIP or Surtax income guidelines, the assistance remains a welcome one for prospective homebuyers.

His passion for the real estate industry and making sure families and individuals have access to the best deals is the only motivation that keeps him going, and he hopes everyday to solve real estate problems one person at a time.Learn more about Brandon Carrero on his LinkedIn profile.
