about me

My name is Laura Bernaby and I am your local mortgage expert! I am licensed in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine.

I was born and raised in southern NH and have a passion for all thing’s real estate, from historic old homes and restoration projects to new construction, renovations, subdivisions, second homes, and investment properties... I love it all!

I studied Business Management at Southern New Hampshire University before beginning my career as a Mortgage Loan Officer. I transitioned from software sales to mortgage lending in 2015, when I obtained my Mortgage Loan Origination License. 

I am a true New Englander at heart! I am held captive here by the changes in the seasons and in my free time I can be found exploring everything New England has to offer, including hiking, camping, kayaking, and spending time at the coast. I enjoy attending sporting events (GO PATRIOTS) and local and town fairs; but most of all I enjoy spending time at home with my son and our three dogs. 

I am an active member in the community, supporting organizations such as the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce, the Plaistow Area Chamber of Commerce, BNI Massachusetts Division (where I hold a leadership role) and the NHREIA (New Hampshire Real Estate Investor Association). 

Whether you are a first time home-buyer, looking for your second home, a vacation home, investment property, or if you are thinking about refinancing, please contact me. Working with Total Mortgage, I have the opportunity to offer my clients a wide range of options so that each of my clients are met with the perfect loan product to fit their needs. I am accessible 7 days a week by call, text or email.
