About Me

For that past 34 years, I have had the privilege of calling Florence my home. In that time, I met and married my wife, raised three beautiful daughters, been active in the Florence Baptist Temple,  and helped many of my friends and neighbors secure the home of their dreams through Finance of America Mortgage. I never forget what it was like to sit across the desk hoping to secure my new home. That is why I treat every Finance of America Mortgage client like I would want to be treated. I take pride in helping each client find the right loan product for their situation and carefully guide them from application through closing. If you are interested in learning more about your mortgage options or just want to say hello, stop by anytime. Our door is always open.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many properties should I look at?

The total number of properties you may look at will depend on several factors, such as your budget and the housing availability in your area. In general, real estate agents recommend that homebuyers look at several properties before making a decision, but there is not an exact number. Most people look at 10 homes, at a minimum, so they can compare them. However, you may find the dream house with more or fewer searches.

What is the best way to search for homes?

When it comes to the best home buying tips, there are different ways to search for properties. Statistics from the National Association of REALTORS® reveal that 51 percent of buyers searched and found their homes on the internet, while 30 percent used real estate agents. Other ways to search for homes include asking friends, relatives, neighbors and homebuilders for help. A small percentage of homebuyers used newspaper advertisements and yard or open house signs to search for homes.

Should I get pre-approval before making an offer?

Although a pre-approval is not one of the required steps to buying a house, it can certainly help you stand out in a competitive market with many buyers. A pre-approval can show sellers that you’re serious and capable of getting a mortgage, so they may be more likely to accept your offer.
