Thanks for visiting our web site. I'm Michael Mandis, President of Alliance Mortgage Funding, Inc., and Certified Residential Mortgage Specialist®, Certified Mortgage Planner®, Certified Military Housing Specialist®, and Certified Path2Buy Coach®. My team and I go the extra mile to obtain the best mortgage program, with the best terms for our borrowers, in an efficient, transparent, and timely manner.

We have a motto in my office: Perfection is the goal, and nothing less than excellence will be tolerated. Every client is treated like a friend. That means we do what we say, when we say we will do it, and we do it well.

My clients and industry colleagues will tell you the same thing. In fact, in the 20 years that I have been in the mortgage business, I have never had to spend money on marketing or advertising – all of my clients come from recommendations and referrals from past clients, and the area’s most respected real estate and financial services professionals. Anyone can run an advertisement, but recommendations must be earned.

My favorite client testimonial ends with the statement, “It felt like you held my hand, right up to my new front door.” My goal is to ensure that every client has this type of experience, and achieving that goal is how I measure success.

Out of the office, I enjoy collecting rock n’ roll memorabilia and traveling with my wife, Anita. I have a passion for spending time in the great outdoors, hiking locally, backcountry trekking with my pack on my back, and exploring the beauty of the U.S. on my Harley.

For many years, I have been a champion for abused and abandoned animals through fostering, adopting, and fundraising. When you visit our office, you are very likely to be greeted by my adopted dogs, Chew Chew Charley and Little Moo, who come to work with me every day! My dream is to one day start a foundation for senior dogs called, ‘GrandPaws’, designed to provide care for abandoned senior dogs and funding for the care of sick pets of elderly owners who might otherwise have to choose between medical care for themselves and their companions.

If you are looking for a mortgage professional with my philosophy on what the home loan process experience should be, call me at (410) 683-1500, or email me at Mike@TheMandisTeam.com. During regular business hours, I can be reached at the number above. Evenings and weekends, you can always reach me on my cell (410) 830-1975.

My Team and I look forward to serving your mortgage needs and helping you during this exciting time in your life.



Craig Brindley

Senior Mortgage Planner – The Mandis Team
Licensed Mortgage Originator - NMLS #145398

I have been originating home loans since 2001 and with The Mandis Team at Alliance Mortgage Funding since 2007. Over that period of time, many things in the industry have changed, but what has remained constant is my sole focus on the client’s needs and on ensuring that the process of securing a loan is a positive and stress free experience. This attention to customer service has resulted in a business that is 100% referral based. It has also resulted in the formation of some great friendships over the years.

Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Ines, daughter, Briana, and our 2 Pugs, Mocha and Cooper. In the fall, I can be found on Sunday afternoons cheering on the Washington Redskins.

My family and I enjoy traveling, especially to Quito, Ecuador to visit Ines’ family. When I want to unwind and relax, I turn up my favorite Jimmy Buffett tunes. Yes, I am a Parrot Head and have attended over 50 Jimmy Buffett shows all over the country.

I am licensed in both Maryland and Pennsylvania, and am only a phone call or email away. I would love to help you fulfill your dreams of home ownership, or save money by refinancing your current mortgage. 

You can reach me at the office at (410) 683-1500, my cell at (410) 807-1975, or by emailat Craig@TheMandisTeam.com

I have substantial experience processing loans using conventional, FHA (including the 203k Rehab), VA, and USDA Rural Development mortgage programs, in both Maryland and Pennsylvania. My goal is to make what can be a stressful process, a much easier experience for our borrowers. I especially enjoy helping first-time home buyers achieve their dream of home ownership.

The commitment of Alliance Mortgage Funding, Inc. to the highest quality of service to our customers has allowed me to remain informed of the latest aspects of the ever-changing mortgage business. This results in continued professional growth that enables me to pave a smooth road for our clients.

During my spare time, I enjoy entertaining, reading, going to the beach, and shopping. I reside in York, PA with my husband, Mike, and Boston Terrier, Liam.
