Karen Dunn

In a world of online experts and push-button mortgages, I believe the human connection still matters. I believe there is never a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to making one of the biggest financial commitments of your life. As your mortgage advisor, I am constantly expanding my knowledge and staying current on the latest mortgage and real estate trends so that I can offer you smart loan options. My team and I will listen so we can provide you with individualized mortgage solutions, based on your unique circumstances and goals.

As a seasoned mortgage professional since 1993, I have the experience needed to provide you with a seamless mortgage experience.

My commitment to service stems from a deep concern for people and intensive training that goes well beyond state and federal requirements. I care for my clients like family and strive to provide you with a seamless mortgage experience from start to finish.

At the heart of everything I do is my family. My husband, John, and two kids, Katie and Jake are my big why in life. Although the empty nest is coming soon, we still enjoy our time together and they are the reason I strive to be the best at what I do.

I’m proud to be part of Big Valley Mortgage because of the strength of their culture. It has proven to be instrumental in supporting BVM’s longevity and growth over the years. Through this culture, BVM can attract and retain the highest quality people – which means your loan will always be in good hands. Our culture provides the framework for every decision we make, ensuring your dreams remain our highest priority.

Let me show you why the human connection still matters.
