Prior to becoming a mortgage advisor in 2016, I was a collegiate athlete playing baseball at San Francisco State University, where I graduated with a degree in business marketing. Becoming a mortgage advisor became an interest of mine when I realized soon after I graduated college that I wanted to have a career that involved helping others achieve home financing. I grew up in Elk Grove, CA and have been a resident in the Sacramento region for 20 years. Watching our local Northern California housing market grow is something that I take great pride in, and is a driving force behind my personal goals as a mortgage advisor. I strive to find the perfect loan product for all my clients by providing up to date mortgage expertise and quality customer service. Let’s come together and make your experience nothing but excellent!

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
