Since relocating to North Carolina in 2012, I love sharing the excitement of the Charlotte and Lake Norman areas with new people relocating there. Knowing that I've helped so many families and individuals obtain financing for their dream home and being chosen as a part of that milestone, I find my career both humbling and rewarding. My caring and honest approach will comfort anyone needing to discuss decisions for home financing.

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.

I could not have asked for a better lender to help me through my first time purchasing a new home! Tara is knowledgeable, EXTREMELY detail oriented, empathetic, and overall made me feel taken care of from beginning to end. I had so many nerves and questions going into the process for the first time. Tara was always available for questions big and small and checked in with me throughout the home buying process to make sure I understood all the complicated terminology and I nailed down a rate that would work for my budget. I would recommend her to a friend or loved on in a heartbeat!
