Kari leads a team which provides both borrowers and real estate agents with the best service and great loan products available, while differentiating itself in the lending space by offering fair and transparent rates and with a goal of driving to a full underwritten approval before they are in contract, rather than the simple “pre-qualification” – all of this allowing the strongest possible position for clients to purchase or refinance.

Kari is the proud mother of two girls, and wife of 18 years to her college sweetheart, whom she met while pursuing her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Marketing from Hillsdale College while on a basketball scholarship. She also went on to receive her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Toledo.

In her free time Kari can be found on the greens mastering her golf swing, painting, or supporting her kids at their favorite sports and activities.
