What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
First time buyers need to have a budget in mind for their mortgage payment. They often qualify for a larger payment than they would be comfortable with, so I focus on their budget and not mortgage guidelines solely. I also remind them that they will be incurring other debts and responsibilities associated with owning a home as well as the household items they will need to properly maintain their home.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
Underwriting guidelines are more detailed these days than in the past, so often clients who have financed previously are frustrated by the level of detail required. We try to give them a detailed list of all required documents up front to avoid the piecemeal document requests that other lenders often create.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
It's very rewarding to help someone with their first home purchase, knowing that they have reached a milestone in their lives. I also enjoy tackling tough situations and applying creative solutions to difficult financing scenarios. Many of my clients have worked with me multiple times and I enjoy seeing their lives unfold and their families grow.
