Sonya Barnes is a native Indiana resident, growing up on a 76 acre farm in Dubois, Indiana. After studying for her Bachelor’s Degree of Marketing at the University of Southern Indiana, she moved to the Indianapolis area to start her career.
Finally meeting her husband Eric in the mid 90’s, they became business partners together as loan originators. They believed in helping borrowers attain the American Dream of home ownership, and educating the buyers on how to manage their investment.
Eric and Sonya were blessed with identical twin daughters. However, at age 2 ½ the girls were both diagnosed with Autism. This diagnosis brought chaos, strength, and many new relationships to their lives, with another level of understanding for the “not so perfect” circumstances that life sometimes brings.
Sonya will go above and beyond to make life work, and shares her optimistic outlook with everyone she meets. In fact her Amerifirst office nickname is “Sunshine & Rainbows.”
