Why You’ll Appreciate Me as Your Loan Originator

We’ll have a conversation right from the beginning.  Of course, you are welcome to complete a loan application online.  But a dialogue can be a fast, efficient way to gather your information, evaluate your qualification for the right loan, and answer your initial questions.  I like to start by saving you a few hours.  No need to fill out a form online and I get a better idea of what you’re looking for.

I’ll make sure your questions and concerns are addressed at the beginning.  I’ll also evaluate any challenges before we spend your money.  This is not the time to try and get around a guideline.  You want to know you have a deal you can close.

I’ll be watching rates closely, but I’ll also keep an eye on time, information and items you’d never think to ask about.  I won’t be making your decisions for you.  You’ll have a lot of contact with me, that’s because you’re the “line leader” of your transaction.  I’ll give you the information you need to make informed decisions about the type of loan program, when to lock, and when to order the appraisal.

When I help you sort through all the paperwork, there’s much less confusion.  And I’m here to help, not just now, while you’re closing the loan, but afterwards also.  I encourage you to call me for any questions or concerns about your mortgage, the market, upcoming plans.  I’m happy to give you my time, a real gift in a commission based business.

I’m a licensed Loan Originator with over 13 years of lending experience.  I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education and a previous 10 year career in mental health, primarily crisis management – which definitely comes in handy right now.  Most importantly, I’m committed to professionally handling your transaction responsibly as if it were my own.
