I find the mortgage industry to be both challenging and exciting as the rules and trends are constantly changing. While most mortgage consultants focus on price and a promise of good service, I believe we need to go further. Price and service mean nothing if you are not trustworthy and competent. Through living up to those four criteria, I can rely on referrals for the majority of my business. Things have changed a lot in the industry since I started in 1995 – we did not even have computers! My clients range from CEOs of large companies to first-time homebuyers looking for someone to help guide them through the process. Maintaining the personal aspect of business is important, so I work with my clients to build a relationship that is life-long and is not based on a single transaction, by tailoring financing to their specific needs. If you have any questions I always welcome your calls and emails. In the world of call waiting and online lending, it is nice to have an immediate voice to talk to. My team and I look forward to working with you. My goal when meeting any new client is to be the last mortgage consultant they work with. I want to be your lender for life!

In today’s modern age, there is no shortage of online lending options. However, when it comes to home financing, local is still the way to go.
Buying a home could be one of your biggest investments. Although financing with an online lender may seem convenient, it comes with big tradeoffs. What you seemingly gain in convenience, you lose in personalized guidance and expertise. No two loans are the same. Each client has their own set of unique circumstances and it’s always better to work directly with a mortgage professional who has your best interests at heart.
For homeowners who have built equity in their homes, a cash-out refinance may be a useful tool to cover some of life’s big expenses. There are many reasons homeowners may be interested in a refinance of this nature. Whether the money is for debt consolidation, a renovation, college tuition, or a new business, this program allows homeowners to turn their equity into cash. READ MORE
An important part of the mortgage application process involves submitting well-organized bank statements. These are used to help verify application information when applying for a mortgage. Having your bank account statements in order will help keep your application moving. If you’re preparing to apply for a mortgage, or have already started, follow these tips for a smoother, faster process:
- Always provide ALL numbered pages of each account statement. “Page 1 of 8” may be nothing more than a cover sheet. Unfortunately, underwriters don’t know that unless they see it.
- Document the source and purpose of deposits that are not clearly identifiable as being from your employer.
- Make copies of all checks and deposit slips and keep them together in case they’re requested when applying for a mortgage.
- Track transfers, too. You will need to provide statements for both accounts involved. If it is a gift from a family member, please consult your Loan Officer on the proper process to follow.
- Don’t deposit currency and checks together, as this will be hard to document. It’s best not to make cash deposits unless you can clearly document the source of the funds.
Following these steps will make it easy to prove that funds going into your accounts are not borrowed. Even private loans have corresponding payments, so underwriters must be certain to account for all debts. When in doubt, remember we’re always here to answer your questions.
