about me

Brett Balisciano knows Branford borrowers. Since first joining Total Mortgage as a loan officer in 2006, he has managed almost every angle of the loan process, from loan setup and processing to closing and post-closing. Before transitioning to the Branford Branch Manager, he helped build Total Mortgage's call center, where he trained our up and coming new loan officers.

For the last 35 years, Brett has called Branford home, and now he spends his days helping borrowers find theirs. When he isn't at work, he's active in the Branford community, where he coaches children's soccer and baseball.

What a great experience I had working with Brett and his team in Branford. He responded within minutes to any questions I had about the process. He showed me various programs and helped me to choose the best one for my situation. I would recommend Brett and his Branford team to anyone looking to purchase a home!


This was my second and final home purchase for my family! The first time around we used someone who was recommended by our agent. The experience could not have been worse! This time around we decided to make some calls and check out different companies. That’s how we found Brett! The first time we hung up the phone with him my husband and I both knew he was our guy! He answered all of our questions professionally and honestly. His personality was exactly what we needed to stay calm during this process. Brett explained the process so well in the beginning that we only needed to ask him a few more questions during the process. No matter what time we emailed or texted Brett his response time was within minutes! His team in Branford is the best out there in my opinion, I will never have to look for another mortgage guy again! I will recommend Brett to anyone I hear talking about a mortgage. His happy attitude and always being there for my family made the home buying process very relaxing! Thank you again for everything!
