I began my career as a real estate agent and mortgage loan officer in 2003. I continued in both roles until 2008 when the market crashed and I decided to focus all my attention on lending. In 2010 the bank I worked for closed its mortgage division so I went inside the banks as a mortgage processor with level 2 underwriting authority. The experience allowed me to see the loan process from the operations side which helps me to submit quality loans. Working in the different roles of the home buying process has helped me understand and appreciate the collaborative efforts required in any real estate transaction. As the son of a Vietnam Veteran, VA loans have been a major point of focus throughout my career. I also work with the local government agencies making home ownership a reality for those with housing vouchers. I am very passionate about the business and the importance of empowering lives thru real estate acquisitions. As long as the earth turns on it axis people will need a place to live and I am dedicated to helping anyone I cross paths with.
