My family moved to Mansfield in 2001 from Shreveport, LA. I started working as a Financial Advisor in March 2001 in Mansfield and now own my own independent practice, Simmons Wealth Management.
My wife, Rona, is a teacher in the MISD. Both of our children, Alana and Nolan, graduated from Mansfield High School and have completed their college degrees. Since moving to Mansfield, I have been active in the Kiwanis Club of Mansfield, serving as President of the club twice and as Lt. Governor of Division 39.
I certainly feel blessed to be able to have the time and ability to also serve on the Board of the Mansfield Area Chamber. The Chamber has grown over the past two years and our focus is on helping local businesses connect and succeed.
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!"
