How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I\'ve been the mortgage lending business since 1987, after spending the previous 12 years in the commercial banking world. My inspiration has always been to help the public reach the American dream of home ownership
How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
I've been in the mortgage business since 1988, and have received several different awards for production and customer service.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Make sure that they are getting into a loan payment that they feel confident with.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
This is easy. All you have to say is MDIA, HVCC, and the amount of documentation required for approvals. The number of people that touch a file from origination to closing is a total change from where it used to be. I would expect that more changes may be on the horizon as long as the government stays involved how we conduct our business.
What can borrowers do to ensure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Follow my instructions and provide the documentation I request upfront. Do not try a deviate from that request.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I enjoy being on the golf course, attending sporting events as time allows, especially ASU/AZ Cardinals football games and AZ Diamondback games. Most of all I enjoy spending my free time with my family.
