Joseph Arvay has been in the mortgage industry for 14 years, and joins GSF as a loan originator. He plans to put his marketing major from the University of Akron to use, by sharing the benefits of homeownership with military service members, and connecting with local builders, realtors and clients. “My clients choose to work with me just because of the financial aspect of the refinance or purchase process, but the ease of mind knowing they are going to have a smooth process from start to finish.”
Mary Gellar joins GSF as a junior processor. Gellar will be responsible for preparing loans to submit to the processing department.
Brett Martin has served in the mortgage industry for five years.

CJ Simpson entered the mortgage industry following graduation at Kent State University in 2007, and joins GSF as a marketing manager. He is excited to help Akron residents realize the dream of homeownership, and to help the lender become a leader in service excellence. “As a person that has been on the receiving end of terrible customer service, I know frustrated it can make a person feel,” Simpson says. “My goal is to make sure every person I speak with feels like they are the most important person in the room.”
