About Me

I have over 35 years of mortgage banking experience, both in senior management and origination. I take great care and pride in assisting my clients in understanding and selecting the financing program that fits their needs. Whether I’m helping a home buyer purchase their first home, or assisting a sophisticated investor to finance an investment property, or a senior over 62 looking for information on Reverse Mortgage. Being a dedicated financing professional helping people achieve their dreams continues to be a rewarding experience. Most of my clients are repeat customers who generously refer their family and friends. Many of them are in professional fields of business and are accustomed to “private client” service and pricing. My clients always get the “Private Client” experience without the big bank hassle.

Please save my website as a “Favorite” to calculate payments or start a preliminary loan application. And I invite you to call or email me with any questions you may have about real estate financing.

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.
