Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
My typical customer is either a 1st time homebuyer who has tons of questions pertaining to literally everything about what it takes to buy a home or a move-up buyer who hasn’t purchased in a long time and needs expert advice on navigating the process again.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I ask my customers lots of questions because I want to understand their future plans of how long they plan to live in the next house, what are their family’s needs, are they looking for a fixed rate or adjustable rate mortgage and how comfortable they are with each, do they want stability or are they looking for the initial lowest monthly payment to grow into, how much money do they have to work with in the purchase. Things like that.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
A great mortgage app to calculate estimated mortgage payments on the fly and a great real estate app so you can search for properties “for sale” in the area you are driving through when you are out looking for areas you would like to live in. Turn in any documentation or financials to our Mortgage Consultant within 24 hours of request.
Are you active in any fundraising organizations? What goals and/or success have you helped them achieve?
I’m very active in the Vista Storm soccer community where my husband and I try to fund raise to acquire scholarships for talented athletes who might need financial assistance to play at the competitive level.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
There is nothing like being a part of the home buying process for a client who did not think they could ever own a home or when a client is buying the home of their dreams or when an investor buys their 1st investment property.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
My Faith, Family and Friendships are the most precious items in my life!
