About Me

I have over 15 years in customer service and 9 years in real estate financing. I aim to provide fast, efficient, and effective customer service. I’m backed up by a highly experienced group of professionals.  With so many loan options available today, I assure you that I will find a loan that meets your needs. My clients are a top priority and I am very hands on and detailed in my work.  Outside of work, I am a father to a amazing full of life energetic little boy named Liam, who keeps me busy outside of my career.  It is not my nature to sit for too long, so I am always on the go and embrace most adventures that comes my way.


Trent is the best at what he does. He always picks up the phone or returns emails and texts in a timely manner and he always has the answer. I’ve done a couple refinances and a mortgage purchase with him and I’ve had nothing but positive experiences. I have a mortgage guy for as long as he’s in business.

Trent and his team were unquestionably the key to a successful offer, acceptance and closing on our house. He was always ahead of the schedule and kept open lines of communication with regular calls, texts and emails. We always knew where the loan was in the application process and managed to close in 35 days from offer!!!!! Trent is experienced, knowledgeable and professional and we were fortunate to have him working for us.

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.
