Shawn Howard
VP of Mortgage Lending

As your lender, I'm well-versed in diverse segments of the mortgage industry, including renovation, new construction, and first-time homebuyer mortgage lending trends. I take pride in building and mentoring my team of loan officers and mortgage professionals to provide you with the best experience possible.
When you come to me for your home loan, I begin by listening. I want to understand your goals and priorities so I can offer a mortgage that's right for you. You may be a first-time homebuyer or a long-time homeowner. You may be buying an investment property or looking for a renovation loan. I offer a wide range of mortgage programs, from FHA and VA to conventional and jumbo. You are an individual and my recommendations will respect your unique circumstances.
Communication is key, and sharing information is as important as listening. I will make sure you know what's happening with your loan as it progresses through the process and will be available to answer your questions. I'll be with you every step of the way, from application to closing and beyond.
Whether you are buying, refinancing, or renovating, I am ready to give you the outstanding mortgage experience you deserve.
