As a mortgage professional with more than 20 years of finance experience, I have helped hundreds of families and individuals to achieve the dream of home ownership. I take the responsibility of helping someone purchase a home very seriously. When you work with me, you can rest assured that my primary goal is to help you understand which mortgage financing options best fit your personal circumstances. I also focus on educating my borrowers and guiding them through all of the steps in the home loan process. I’m able to offer borrowers a comprehensive selection of mortgage programs. These include conventional loans, jumbo loans, FHA , USDA, VA and down payment assistance loan programs. I am originally from Kansas City, and I earned my degree in Business Administration at Baker University. When not helping my clients, I enjoy spending time with family. I have been married for 13 years, and have a 5 year old son, Harrison. I also enjoy camping, off-roading, and working around the house. Whether it is just the normal maintenance or remodeling project, I like to break out the power tools!

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.
