What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I always ask lots and lots of questions to determine the client's situation. We then walk through all of the home loan options available to them to meet their individual financing needs.
Are you active in any fundraising organizations? What goals and/or success have you helped them achieve?
My husband and I have been avid supporters of Make a Wish Foundation of Oregon for many years. They make wishes come true for sick children and are truly an amazing organization!
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
I love to work with first time homebuyers! It is so wonderful to see the "light bulb" go off when you have walked through the home loan process steps with them and they get it, and feel confident in the large financial decision they are about to make.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
Outside of the office, I enjoy exercising, cooking, imbibing on classic cocktails, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors in the sun with my husband and (currently) two dogs.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am a native Portlander! I have visited other places, but at the end of the day, Portland seems to be the best. It has great people (who recycle!), beer/cocktails, food, neighborhoods, schools and green spaces along with other cool stuff. We have lived in close-in SE for over two decades. We’ve watched the neighborhood grow and become a close-knit area where you can walk to get anything you need. Now, if we just had sunshine for more than 4 months a year…
