Awards & Recognition
As a California Mortgage Loan Officer, with over 13 years of experience, I attribute my success to one simple quality: I take care of my clients! Whether your goal is to purchase your dream home, refinance an existing loan, consolidate debt, or invest in rental property, I will provide you with the expertise and customer service that ensures your transaction goes smoothly and delivers the interest rate and loan terms that works best for you.
MY SERVICES INCLUDE:
- A diverse selection of Conventional and Government loan products
- Programs that serve military families and first time homebuyers
- A holistic fiscal approach that considers your short and long term financial goals in order to determine which mortgage product benefits you the most
- Shop for the best interest rates & terms:
- I am a licensed banker and broker which allows me to shop your loan at several banks
- Timely & consistent communication:
- I am responsive and dependable (which I take great pride in!) I return calls promptly and update you throughout the loan process.
- Meet with you in person or work remotely… whichever is best for you!
- You get to pick your interest rate!
