About The Hulbert Team
Michelle Hulbert Bio
Since I’ve had a fulfilling 30-year career in the mortgage industry, I have a wealth of experience to share with you. I have a passion for helping Nevada homebuyers find the ideal financing solutions. My team shares my belief that it’s a privilege to assist people with their home financing, so we all take our role in the process to heart. Whether you’re a first time buyer or expanding your investment portfolio, you can count on exceptional service from The Hulbert Team. I’m also an experienced real estate investor, and advise my investor clients in making wise decisions that will help them reap the maximum benefit from their properties. Complicated loans...bring them on! My team has closed many loans that other mortgage lenders could not, including loans for self-employed borrowers. I’m a native "small town” Nevadan and I love to spend my free time outdoors. I’m also the world’s biggest, self-proclaimed baseball fan, and I love to read and to travel. I cherish my family time with husband, Tom, our son Jack - a college student and avid photographer - and Evan, a high school student and varsity baseball player.
Amy Brazil Bio
I began my career in the housing industry as a REALTOR® in the Reno/Sparks area. With over 20 years of experience as a top producer, I fully understand my borrowers’ home buying experiences. This background enables me to bring a valuable perspective to the table. As a Team Loan Consultant, I’m committed to hard work, integrity, and meticulous attention to detail. I bring a down-to-earth approach to the office every day, combined with a keen sense of humor and candid manner, to help connect our borrowers with the properties they’ve personally chosen and already love. From analyzing income and credit, to helping borrowers choose the right mortgage to meet their personal financial goals, to arranging an on-time closing, I work nonstop to provide borrowers with the results they deserve. I earned an Honors degree in Journalism and Advertising from the University of Nevada, Reno. After graduating, I honed my marketing skills during several years of award-winning work at one of Reno’s leading advertising agencies before moving up to the real estate and mortgage business. I love Reno and Sparks, and enjoy the perfect blend of small-town friendliness and big-city style the area offers. When I’m not assisting borrowers, I love to travel and spend time with my husband Chuck and our sons, Chase and Reese.
Ashley Palbicki Bio
In my role as Production Assistant, I assist The Hulbert Team with the technical side of the mortgage process. This includes entering application data, obtaining borrowers’ income and asset analyses and verifications, researching property details, and disclosing mortgage fees. I navigate our systems efficiently and also reach out to our borrowers to obtain any missing information required to approve their loan application. My attention to detail and strong work ethic have helped me become a valuable team member. Prior to joining Caliber Home Loans, I was a Loan Consultant with Great Basin Federal Credit Union. After this initial experience, I decided I wanted to build a lasting career in home financing with a national lender. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, before I relocated to Reno. I’ve been here for almost 10 years and enjoy everything the area has to offer, including having Tahoe at my doorstep. After working hours, I spend time on the hiking trails with my fiancé Joel, and winding down in Midtown.
