Carolyn Nelson
VP of Mortgage Lending

Using a common-sense approach to the mortgage loan process, I focus on helping the borrower choose the loan that fits them best through thorough discussions of their financial status and goals. A degree from Duke University and an MBA with a finance concentration enable me to simplify for my clients a process that can sometimes seem daunting. As a Captain in the United States Air Force and as a Six Sigma Black Belt for General Electric, I honed my problem solving and communication skills and am very efficient and detail-oriented. It is not enough to know the guidelines; it is critical that you know how to artfully put together your unique story and provide the documentation to support it. I work with a top-notch team to ensure the mortgage process goes as smoothly as possible from the beginning of the transaction through the closing. We keep everyone up-to-date and informed, minimizing stress and completing the loan in a timely manner. Whether you are buying or refinancing your mortgage, my goal is to exceed your expectations every time you do business with us. I provide a personal level of service to go along with our high tech tools and am personally available to assist you via phone or face-to-face.
