A Milford-based mortgage company has opened a retail branch office on the Post Road in the west end of downtown.

Total Mortgage Services LLC had a grand opening Monday, June 24, at 1873 Post Road, opposite Rawley's restaurant.

The company said it provides a variety of mortgage products, including fixed and adjustable-rates, jumbo, FHA, VA and USDA mortgages.

The 16-year-old company was founded in Milford and last month opened its first branch office in Ridgefield.

The 2,600-square-foot Fairfield office will be staffed by an initial workforce of six and co-managed by a pair of industry veterans who live in Fairfield.

Co-manager Joe Bartolomeo is a 25-year veteran of the mortgage industry and a co-founder of Total Mortgage Services. In 2013, he was named a Top Mortgage Professional by Connecticut Magazine.

Co-manager Thomas Bepko was born and raised in Fairfield and has worked in the industry for 10 years.

In a news release, company president John Walsh said Bartolomeo and Bepko know the Fairfield market well and will work to strengthen relationships with the community's Realtors, accountants and lawyers.

The Fairfield office will be open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m., to 5 p.m.
