About Me

After graduating from CSU Sacramento with a degree in Psychology and Business minor. I have been in mortgage banking for the past 12 years. I originate all types of residential loans- including conventional, jumbo, FHA, and VA. I love working with 1st time home buyers and thrilled when I get to call them about their loan funding. Makes my day. 🙂 Personally, I love spending time with my family and close friends. I am a HUGE Giants fan and this year is so fun to watch. I love to exercise regularly. Currently, I have been doing Bikram Yoga. Great meditation time. I am an avid gardener and love to cook meals for my friends of what I grow.

I look forward to speaking to you soon about your mortgage and your financial goals.

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.
