With over 10 years of industry experience, I pride myself on providing quality service and maintaining a commitment to understanding each customer’s unique needs. Due to my experiences in the industry, I have gained effective skills and tools that assist me in providing customers with satisfactory financing for their new home. After graduating from Loras college in 1994 with a finance degree I have been in lending or financial education ever since. I am not going to say that I have seen it all but whether you are looking for your first house or 2nd vacation home I will put my years of experience to work for you.
Outside of my professional career I like spending quality time with my family and friends. My wife and 2 children and I have lived in Johnston Iowa for 15 years where we have built our own life around friends and family. In my free time, I enjoy watching my 2 kids in all there sporting activities and sneaking in a little fishing and hunting for myself. By having the opportunity to enjoy these activities in my life, I truly appreciate how valuable time is. Therefore, I strive to help homeowners find the appropriate loan program that fits their lifestyle quickly so they can move through this transition with ease.
I welcome the opportunity to guide you through the home loan process and help you select the loan program that best suits your needs. I look forward to assisting you in your homeownership journey in the future!

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.
