Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
My typical customer just wants to understand. I always try to communicate with the intention of helping the client understand each step and to let them know I will be there throughout the process to help them the whole way.
What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
The biggest misconceptions people have about the home loan process is that there is a one size fits all for borrowers. People do not understand how each situation is unique with its own challenges and has to be structured to the individual needs of the client.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
The best resource for borrowers to work with a knowledgeable loan officer like me. You need to work with a loan officer you trust that has the experience and knowledge to help you to navigate the home loan process.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
I truly love working in mortgage because I love helping people. There is nothing as satisfying as helping someone purchase their first home or helping someone refinance to debt consolidate or lower their interest rate, helping to see if they could save on their monthly payments which can potentially add up to thousands of dollars over the course of the loan. I have helped many clients who have been turned down at other banks just because I take the extra time needed to structure their loan and work through the challenges. Some borrower need more TLC and I am happy to help them.
I have been in mortgage for over 25 years and I can honestly say I have never been bored. Each day brings new challenges to keep my creative juices and problem solving skills flowing.

What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I have two new Schnauzer puppies, Louis & Vuitton! They are my joy as they bring endless love and laughter. They are a constant source of entertainment and so curious about everything!
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am a sports enthusiast and I have a goal of going to every major sporting event. I have already crossed off a few on my list with the US Open, The Kentucky Derby and an NBA Final. I would love to go to a Super Bowl, Wimbledon and the Masters next. The Olympics is definitely on my bucket list as well. I have a lot of respect for people who dedicate their lives to be the best!
