When you come to me for a home loan, the first thing I do is listen. I will work with you to determine your financial goals so I can offer you the mortgage options best suited to your unique circumstances. I will assist you in navigating the mortgage process to make it as smooth as possible, communicating clearly from application to closing. However, my job doesn’t end when you close. I will continue to be available to answer your questions and advise you on future home loans. It is very exciting to be part of Guaranteed Rate, one of the top 10 lenders in the country offering great rates and service with our Digital Mortgage Technology. I have been a consistent top producer and recognized as one of the Top Mortgage Originators in the nation. I am also active in the community volunteering at the Lazarus House as well as coaching youth sports. I have 30 years of experience in the mortgage business and I am a graduate of Bentley University where I received a bachelor degree in finance . I have closed over $2 Billion in loans and more important , have helped thousands of clients achieve the dream of home ownership. I have developed expertise in several loan programs, including Conforming, Jumbo, VA and FHA mortgages. I can provide a same-day pre-approval to home buyers working closely with the Realtor and builder communities. I will also assist first time buyers as well as current homeowners to determine their ability to sell their existing home and qualify for a move up mortgage or inform homeowners of any refinance opportunities. I encourage my clients to call me any time, 7 days a week, because I know when you need information about your loan, you don’t want to wait. Simply put, I want to be your loan officer for life.
