About Me
Experience that counts! -
I am an 18 year veteran of the mortgage industry and have held every position from loan officer to processor to manager to owner. I closed down my shop in November 2009 due to the economy, launched a social media company (I am early adopter of social media) and have re-entered the mortgage business as an originator. I can fund loans in all 50 states.
"I originate loans .....but first and foremost, I am in the customer service business"
Being a casualty of the economy myself like so many others, I am very sensitive to communicating regularly with my clients, never keeping them in the dark or wondering. The loan process is mysterious enough these days. I simplify the experience because I understand your pain points...
