What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
With all my clients, I make sure to clearly understand what they’re looking to accomplish. It helps me to know what my client’s goals are so I can recommend options that will help them reach those goals and ultimately make them happy and satisfied.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Ask questions! I believe in transparency and being open and honest every step of the way. This gives my clients peace of mind. A home is typically the largest investment a person will make in their life so it’s important to feel comfortable and informed. It should be an exciting process and I’m here to make sure it is!
What can borrowers do to ensure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
What really helps to ensure the mortgage underwriting process goes smoothly is providing complete documents when first requested and open communication with your mortgage specialist. Having all the requested documents together at the beginning of the process really helps move the process along more efficiently and helps borrowers’ peace of mind.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Everyone in my family went to Ohio State so it was only natural that I would follow tradition. I graduated from Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business with a B.S. in Business Administration, in 2010. I’ve been fortunate to live & work in some beautiful places like San Jose and San Diego, California, but Chicago feels like home and I love living in the city!
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I’ve run 2 of the 6 World Major Marathons, New York City, and Chicago, and have also completed a few triathlons. My next goal is to complete a half-ironman triathlon!
