David Alello | HBA Platinum Industry Partner
Assurance Financial

I have been in the business for 20 years and with Assurance Financial for the last 13 years. We pride ourselves on building lasting relationships based on trust and experience. We strive to not only provide a true preapproval that will get to the closing table, but we also work to close on time every time(or sooner).
