About Me

After graduating from UW with a degree in Criminal Justice and a couple years working in that field, something didn’t feel right.  Elle’s mom, who has been in the real estate world for her entire life, suggested the mortgage industry, got her an interview and the rest is history!

With access to Finance of America Mortgage’s expert lending services and innovative mortgage solutions, Elle can offer her clients unmatched service and top-class loan options.  She believes the success of her business is based upon great communication, availability and transparency with her clients.  She enjoys using her creativity to save her clients money and will do everything in her power to get them the best deal!  Elle takes great pride in helping her clients achieve their financial dream.

Elle was born & raised in Tacoma; she even bought a house a few blocks from where she grew up!  She has volunteered as a CASA (court appointed special advocate) for Pierce County family courts for over a year, and absolutely loved being able to give kids a voice in the disarray of family court.  When she is not working, Elle loves getting out and exploring with her kids. Her and her family enjoy traveling any chance they get; whether it be relaxing in the sun, playing on the water or in the snow!

Elle received the 2019 Q4 Finance of America Mortgage Core Award for Empowerment.  She highly values her team and recognizes that everyone’s efforts help make for a smooth loan process.

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.
