About Me

With more than 50 years of combined experience in mortgage lending, my team and I have seen it all. We're motivated and inspired by working with clients to help them achieve their homeownership goals.

I’ve been in the Antelope Valley since 1973, but no matter where you are or looking to go in California, we'll help you fulfill your dream. My experienced, hard-working team ensures that you understand all available options and stay informed, from application to loan closing. Our goal is to make the process as seamless and stressfree as possible. We pride ourselves on always having someone available when you need us.

When I am not helping people achieve their dream of homeownership, I love being outdoors, boating, off-roading, or, my favorite, hanging out with family and friends.

Let’s find the right home loan for you

We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.

Conventional

Conventional

A Conventional loan is a great option if you have an average to high credit score and little debt. This allows you to take advantage of lower interest rates. With these types of loans, you have the option to put 20% down, which eliminates the need for private mortgage insurance (PMI) and saves you money. If you don’t have a large down payment saved up though, don’t worry. We have Conventional loan options for down payments as low as 3%.
Down payment assistance

Down payment assistance

If you’re purchasing your first home, you have options to buy without saving a full down payment. Down payment assistance (DPA) programs can help with your down payment in the form of a loan or grant that is often forgiven over time.
FHA

FHA

If you’re looking to buy on a tight budget, these loans are a great option. It’s easier to qualify for FHA loans because they carry lower credit score requirements and lower down payment options starting at 3.5% down. They’re also insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and only issued by FHA-approved lenders.

All loans are subject to underwriter approval; terms and conditions may apply. Subject to change without notice.
