How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
Loan Officer Interview Q&A's
I've been in the banking industry for over 5 years. I've loved being able to help people improve their finances, which can, in turn, improve their lives.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
I would advise new homebuyers to make sure they are informed. It is one of the largest purchases that we make in our lives. It's also a good idea to establish a budget before starting to look at homes. This way you will know what you can comfortably afford. Often you can qualify for more home than you will feel comforable buying. Knowing and sticking to the budgeted amount will help you in the long run.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Today's mortgage underwriting process is all about documentation. Keeping this in mind, sending in all the requested documentation on time can make the process go smoother.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I love live music. Mostly local artists and venues. I'm open to any genre, as long as they're good.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
Along with being a mortgage loan originator, I love to travel. I have traveled all over the US and many countries in Europe and Latin America.
