How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I just got into the mortgage business. I became a 5 Star to see if I was interested in the industry. Once I began working, I quickly realized that I love the atmosphere here at Guaranteed Rate. I have been an athlete my entire life and I love the team atmosphere, as well as the drive that everyone has for individual success. It is great that Guaranteed Rate recognizes and celebrates the success of our employees.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
My advice to first time home buyers is to take a deep breath. You can do this. Here at Guaranteed Rate, we first time home buyers are our favorite clients. A mortgage is one of the biggest financial decisions of your life and as your mortgage specialist, I am going to make this process as smooth and efficient as possible.
What can borrowers do to ensure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
• A borrower who wants to help ensure a smooth mortgage underwriting process can do this in several ways. The borrower needs to be clear in what their goals are. This will help me to find their best options. The borrower needs to be honest and accurate with the initial info given to help me find their best options. Last, the borrower needs to be on top of responding and sending the proper documents. If the borrower can do those three things, the process will be very smooth for them.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
When I am not helping people with their home loans, I love to play soccer. I played through college and have learned a lot about life through playing the beautiful game. I still play competitively every week and have the same love for the game to this day!
