How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I entered the mortgage lending business 15 years ago because I wanted to provide my unique expertise and broad knowledge to clients who want unparalleled, fresh perspectives on lending options and solutions. I love it when I meet clients and help provide them with the best service and resolutions for their financial needs.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
Because of the past challenges in our industry, I am happy to see that my clients come to me more conscious of the long-term commitment their financial decisions require. They want to prepare themselves. I love teaming up with them as their long-term advisor to guide them, not only through a single mortgage process, but to realize their lifetime financial goals.
What 2 or 3 mobile apps would you recommend for home buyers or house hunters, and why? What Smart Apps do you recommend your customers use for the house hunting process?
Part of the reason I chose to team with Guaranteed Rate is because their technology structure is top notch. I highly recommend all of my clients use the Guaranteed Rate Mobile App. It makes house hunting so much easier and offers them the information they need right at their fingertips. When it’s time to complete an application, customers can complete the Digital Mortgage in just 20 minutes! This will allow them to shop for a home with the security of a pre-approval. It also helps cut down on the challenges of providing secure documents.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
I am most satisfied when I make sure my customers’ needs are understood. I take the time to get to know the people I work with. I investigate their future dreams and goals to help them make fit decisions for their future. This allows me to avoid a cookie cutter mortgage model and really customize the mortgage process for each of my clients.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am fortunate to travel the world. This allows me to cultivate diverse and rich friendships in my personal and professional life. I pride myself on truthful and honest relationships.
