Ask A Mortgage Question


I have over 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry. I enjoy working with first-time home buyers, as well as high net worth buyers, investors, realtors, and builders. Throughout my career, I worked as a loan officer, branch manager, and operations manager of several different mortgage companies. I consider myself to be a professional sales leader because of the thousands of people I have impacted positively during my career. My strengths are my experience and ability to get deals done, as well as placing a high value on communication with my clients and referral partners.
