About Me

I am a mortgage industry veteran with experience originating residential loans, and managing teams at the local, area, and regional levels. This experience has allowed me to assist my clients in funding more than ONE BILLION dollars of home loans.
I began my mortgage career working with VA loans in the St. Louis area in 1993, and became both an VA and FHA expert. As time went on, I learned the intricacies of adjustable rate mortgages, buy downs, and state bond programs. While specializing in first time home buyers, I built a loyal customer base and now feel fortunate to be helping the children of the those whose first home loans I assisted with many years ago.

I have coached both loan officers and real estate agents to success, and find humble satisfaction in changing lives for the better.

I live in the Sunset Hills area with my wife of 30+ years. We are blessed to have three grown children and four grandchildren. When I am not spending time with my family I enjoy woodworking and restoring old hand planes.

I look forward to the opportunity to share my experience and expertise with you to help you manage your financial future.

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.
