About Me

I am proud to say I have over 20 years’ experience in the mortgage industry. In that time, I have gained a deep understanding of the local real estate market, individual neighborhoods and new housing developments. My passion is to help individuals reach their goal of homeownership. I also love helping current homeowners decipher if their existing mortgage is the best solution for them or if refinancing may be a better option. Working with Finance of America Mortgage gives me the products, tools and resources to help each client through the entire Mortgage process from application through closing. I believe in building personal relationships with my clients to fully understand their needs, goals and dreams. If you are new to the area, looking to relocate or just interested in learning more about your home financing options feel free to call me anytime or stop by the office.  I would love to meet you!

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.
