Own what matters

About Me

I believe strongly in the dream of homeownership, and the ability for individuals to build wealth through owning real estate.  I take pride in providing a personalized and educational approach to lending, whether that is showing a First Time Buyer how to enter the market or showing the Move Up buyer how to best leverage their equity. Buying a home should be one of your most exciting accomplishments. Don't let a lack of clear answers turn you away from the biggest investment you can make for your future: your home. 

With my years of experience as a Loan Officer, Manager and Trainer, I pride myself on providing concierge like, tech-forward approach to lending, making your life easier throughout the process.

When I’m not working, or volunteering with the Salvation Army, I love to stay active around Sacramento with my wife.  Whether that is Rowing Crew in West Sacramento or Cycling the American River Trail, we try to be outside as much as possible!  I’m looking forward to helping you make a house, your home.
