How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have over 22 years in the Mortgage Business. I was inspired to get into financing after the experience I faced on my first home. I felt like no useful information was given to me. I felt blind to the whole loan process. I knew that I could add a better element of education and partnership that all buyers deserve.
I am proud to say that at the end of every transaction, my clients have gone through their loan with someone by their side, who was honest, accessible, and eager to make their experience better than anyone can.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
The advice that I would give any First time buyer is the same I give at my First time buyer classes. Your relationship with your loan officer is no different than your personal relationships. If you can't get along and share honesty between each other. If you have to beg them for information. If you can't get them to call you back to answer the questions that are important to you. Break up with them. Trust me. They will get over it.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
I think the hardest part about the mortgage process is trying to understand how it really works and the complexities that the new financing rules bring to loans.
Helping them understand how it works and why the rules are there really help buyers navigate through the mortgage process.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
The most satisfaction I get is when the buyers are sitting at their closing finishing their loan transaction, and starting their new life in their new home.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
With all the stress that buying a home can be, I always try and reassure my clients that we are a team all the way through.
