With over 30 years of mortgage lending and management experience, I have witnessed the peaks and valleys of housing markets. I understand that “one size” does not fit all and have developed a consultative, “hands-on” approach to mortgage lending. My clients are assured I have a full understanding of their goals and budget. As my client, you will have confidence your financing is designed to be the best fit for your specific situation; whether that is a new home purchase, refinance of your current home, vacation home, or investment property.

My vast experience both in originating and managing other loan officers makes me uniquely qualified to assist with a wide array of mortgage customer’s needs.

Ranging from complex “Self-Employed”, borrowers who are planning for Retirement, or those of you with other “Non-traditional income sources”, JUMBO, FHA, VA, USDA and “First-Time” home buyers, my experience will navigate you through the mortgage process, guide you through the compliance and regulatory requirements and consider the “WHY’s ” and ‘WHAT-IFs” thoroughly.

My goal is to design your home financing to be harmonious with your lifestyle, and budget, assuring synergies that complement your situation today, tomorrow, and well into the future.
