Home Loan Specialist for over 16 years!
I have worked in the customer service industry for over 25 years and have experience working in health care, the legal field, health club management, human resources as a director, and working in the title/escrow industry. I love meeting and getting to know new people and developing relationships with business partners, clients, new friends, etc. I love the challenges of the mortgage industry and finding solutions to problems as they arise. There’s a great feeling of accomplishment when I can tell a client and all involved in a purchase or refinance transaction, that the loan is closed.
I have been in Arizona all my life and love this state! I’m most proud of my 2 kids, making their way through college and becoming amazing young adults. I’m a huge sports fan… both watching and playing and equate the successful management of the mortgage lending process to a sporting event- utilizing great communication, patience, enthusiasm, knowledge of the skills involved, persistence, creativity, integrity, and good sportsmanship.
Purchasing a home is the biggest investment in life that most people make. I strive to make the experience as smooth and stress free as possible.

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.
