My name is Jesse Moorhouse, VP of Sales and Senior Loan Officer at Paradise Mortgage & Investments LLC


After graduating college with a bachelors degree in Criminology, Sociology and a minor in psychology I decided to follow the family business and start working for my Mom who has been in the mortgage business for over 40 years. Starting off as a part time loan assistant, I quickly saw the great opportunity I had and decided to transition into writing loans full time. With my work ethic and years of experience being passed down from my Mom, I can answer any mortgage related questions you might have!


I moved to Charleston from Albuquerque with my fiancé in pursuit of expanding Paradise Mortgage & Investments. After marketing and going to events in the Hanahan area, we met with Michael Smith and shortly after decided we would partner with him and Smith Group Real Estate and market together. As a team, we specialize in all of the Charleston area and Paradise Mortgage is licensed to work on loans in all of South Carolina


Outside of work, I am also a professional MMA fighter. I have trained with people from all around the world including some UFC stars. Martial arts is a true passion of mine outside of my work. I love being outside on the water somewhere and enjoying a more active lifestyle. Living in the Charleston area has been very enjoyable for me for this same reason!


Myself and Paradise Mortgage specialize in all different types of loans, so we will easily be able to figure out what type of loan is going to be the best option for our client. We are licensed in South Carolina, New Mexico, Texas and soon to be in Tennessee and Georgia! We are always working for the best interest of our clients and want to make the process as easy and simple as possible for them. I pride myself on always answering the phone for my clients no matter what day or time they call, I will pick up the phone and answer any questions that they might have.

My name is Kimbrell Brown, Loan Originator at Paradise Mortgage & Investments! As a previously full-time registered nurse, I am in the business of helping others with compassion and energetic effort! I work 24/7, so you can get the help you need, no matter the day or hour! 


Kimbrell's background and personal life: 

Kimbrell grew up in Mount Pleasant, SC, with her eight brothers and sisters. Her father, a local pastor in the charleston area, facilitated her involvement with outreach programs and camps for people with special needs. Kimbrell's desire to be a helping hand to those in need led to her working as a behavioral technician for children with special needs during high school. In college, Kimbrell obtained a bachelor's degree in nursing from Clemson University.


After working in the emergency department for over two years amid a global pandemic, Kimbrell was involved in a car accident that affected her ability to work as a nurse. This accident, though difficult, was a blessing as it led to Kimbrell's interest and involvement with being a mortgage loan originator. Kimbrell's fiance, Jesse, worked for his mother's company, Paradise Mortgage & Investments. After watching how Jesse and his mother, Karrie, so diligently helped others with mortgages, Kimbrell became excited about a new career opportunity. 


With the same desire to help others, Kimbrell studied and passed the National MLO Exam, becoming a full-time loan originator. Kimbrell is now proudly serving the Charleston Area and is excited to be part of the Smith Group and Paradise team!
