                  Like many of you I needed a mortgage prior to being a part of this exciting industry. Nervous about each and every step in the process, what I really wanted was a communicator. Someone who would return my phone calls promptly (no matter how often I called) and one who would walk me through the vigor of the mortgage process without making me feel as though I was a burden. I wanted someone not to use lender lingo like "points and yield, spread and premiums". What I needed was a person to understand that we all may only experience this process a couple of times in our lives and it is more complicated and nerve racking when you’re on the side receiving the loan. Guess what, I am that person!! I am excited to serve you as your loan officer and my goal is not only to earn this one transaction from you but to become your mortgage guy for life.
