About Me

I started in the mortgage industry in 2002 and built my business by focusing on educating my clients on the mortgage process, by listening to their needs, wants and goals, and designing a mortgage strategy to be fit their needs at that time. By doing so, I help them understand the available products best suited for them along with the benefits of a mortgage as more than just a financial instrument to buy a home. The mortgage business isn’t work, it’s a passion. I want to be your mortgage partner for life, and I am committed to making a difference in your portfolio and improving your financial well-being. Constant communication is vital to an enjoyable and successful experience. I look forward to helping you, your family and friends.
