Florence County is my home, and its residents are my family. Born and raised in Coward, I graduated from Florence Christian School and earned my MBA from Francis Marion University. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing the good people of Florence County realize their dream of homeownership. I am proud to work for Finance of America Mortgage because we understand that you are not just buying a house; you are buying a home. A home where you can raise children, forge memories and live out your days in peace.
I try to approach each day with humility and respect because I know that each client has entrusted me with their home purchase. It’s my job to make sure they understand the mortgage process from application through closing with ease and clarity. Finance of America Mortgage gives me the tools and products to help each person who walks through my door find the mortgage that best suits their situation. Those in need of a mortgage loan should come see me because I genuinely care about my clients. I do not take the opportunities that I have been given lightly and I am always available, day or night, to answer questions. When my clients leave, I want them to truly feel like family and know that I did everything I could to meet their mortgage needs.

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.
