I believe there is nothing more empowering than earning, saving, and preparing to purchase a new home. That’s why I chose a career in an industry where I can assist that process and work one-on-one to make homeownership a reality for my clients. I began my career after graduate studies with large financial institutions where I felt I could hone my craft under the tutelage of some of the industry’s most powerful organizations. While working for banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America, I received numerous top 10% producer and customer satisfaction accolades. As my career progressed, I realized that the big banks would not allow me room to evolve with the constantly changing mortgage industry and it was time for a move.
In spring of 2015 I left the financial institutions to join Secured Funding Corporation. The switch to be becoming a broker has given me access to more lenders' preferred rates, which helps me service my clients better. I no longer work for a specific lender or organization, I work for my clients. With access to numerous competing lenders, this allows me to provide my clients with the service they deserve and the best fit product that the market has to offer. Whether you are purchasing or refinancing, I can help you get a great rate and make the transaction an enjoyable one.
