Extensive real estate experience as a local lender for all of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.

Michelle Vander Wel
VP of Mortgage Lending

I am a true local lender, In 1994 I moved to Tampa, FL from a small town in Nebraska, it was love at first sight, a home with a pool right on the golf course in the Northdale community but it didn't stop there, I have lived in Odessa, North Tampa in the Carrollwood area and currently live on Davis Islands in South Tampa. There is so much to love about Florida!! When we go out on the weekends we go to Brandon, St. Petersburg all the way to Pasco county where my mom lives in Land O' Lakes to Dade City where we ride at Croom. I love working hard, playing hard, and spending time with my family. As an experienced Tampa local lender I truly enjoy helping my clients find the right loan options for them and helping them understand the process of buying or refinancing a home. I know that how I treat others today will directly effect my success in the future due to the many referrals I have received. It's a joy and a compliment to get these referrals. If you are someone that has been referred to me, know that I hope to make the same impact on you!
