Relationship Driven

Brian Coughlin, Mortgage Consultant

When people are looking for a mortgage to refinance or purchase a home they are sometimes met with many hurdles that can be very stressful at times. They need someone to guide them who is determined to get the job done. In order to understand these qualities about Brian we need to go back to one particular night in May of 2000 that showed where Brian’s determination and calmness were on display when people were counting on him to lead. 

It was a raining night in Fishkill, NY back in May of 2000.  Marist College was playing Fairfield University in the MAAC Championship baseball game.  Marist went down early in the game and in the top of the third inning was down 4-0 with bases loaded and only two outs.  Coach John Szefc of Marist at the time, who is currently the head coach of Virginia Tech had a major decision to make that night.  He called on pitcher Brian in a high pressured moment to stop the momentum and allow Marist to get back into the game. This decision proved to be right as Marist won the game 11-5 and moved on to the NCAA Tournament in Lafayette, Louisiana.


Brian has reflected on this moment many times in his life, which has helped him grow his business as he most recently became partner in July of 2018 with Welcome Home Mortgage, LLC. Welcome Home is a Mortgage Broker that is licensed in Connecticut and Florida.  They can help clients from 1st time homebuyers up to retirees that need advice on the right mortgage option for them and their families.

Welcome Home Mortgage, LLC has 5 pillars they believe in.

  4. Continuous Improvement is essential for our long term success

Brian is a strong community minded person as well and most recently was the Rotary President for the club in town. What better way to understand this than Through the Eyes of a Child. Charlie who is Brian’s son wrote “My Dad helps out a lot around town.  He does finances for  people’s homes and he is in the Rotary Club that does a lot of fundraisers to help groups of people. Some of the events they do are wine and roses, and the pancake breakfast/road race where he got the idea for the  Rotary Mascot Freddy. This is why my Dad’s jobs are so important for the people and are really cool.”
