About Us

Meet Our Co-Founders, Brent and Ryan

Brent Nardecchia, Co-Founder and CEO

With over 20 years of experience in the Phoenix real estate market, Brent has built an unrivaled knowledge of home lending solutions to best serve the great state of Arizona. In that time, Brent built his reputation by offering white glove service and staying true to his commitments. It’s those very traits that carry over into the mission of High Place Mortgage – To build a better mortgage experience by leveraging the latest tech, building a high-performing team to raise the standard in mortgage service, and keeping true honor to our word. When not working on loans, Brent further fuels his passion for real estate through investing and building new homes to revitalize the community.

Outside of work, you can find Brent spending quality time with his family and cheering in the stands at his kids’ many sporting events. Brent is a transplant from Cleveland, Ohio, but has been a proud Arizona resident since college. The beauty of the desert and vibrant atmosphere of Phoenix’s growing population are two of the many reasons that Brent and his family call Arizona their home.


Ryan Myers, Co-Founder and Managing Partner

As our Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Ryan has over 20 years of experience in mortgage lending. Over that time, Ryan has cultivated an extensive skillset of not only traditional residential mortgages, but also commercial loans, construction financing, and non-traditional mortgages. With this unique knowledge base, Ryan offers expertise on a remarkably wide field of scenarios for all borrowers, which is an incredible asset to clients of High Place Mortgage and the greater Phoenix real estate community. In addition to lending, Ryan plays a vital role in the community through his local real estate revitalization efforts and new home construction projects.

Originally from Bismarck, North Dakota, Ryan earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Minnesota State University-Moorhead, in Moorhead, Minnesota. In 2013, he relocated to Phoenix where he currently resides with his wife, Ari and daughter, Avery. To power his passion for giving back to the community, Ryan is actively involved in charitable contributions for the Colon Cancer Coalition: Get Your Rear in Gear.
