Wendy Mariani has been in the mortgage industry since 1996, and with Finance of America Mortgage since 2010. She is committed to ensuring her clients have clarity on their loan options so they can make well informed decisions. Wendy’s top priority is helping her clients achieve their goals for home ownership and to be their advocate throughout the entire loan process. She believes a mortgage is not just a loan but a financial tool to be integrated within the clients overall financial plan and goals. Wendy finds that using clear, concise communication about loan options and what to expect from the loan process greatly reduces the stress most people associate with obtaining a loan.
Wendy incorporates communication, education on the loan process and setting proper expectations so buyers are armed with information to help them feel confident and decisive when they begin their home search. A key difference with Wendy is that she remains the main contact for the client; from the application process to closing the loan, her clients interact with her directly from start to finish.
Wendy truly enjoys creating lasting relationships with her clients and managing their mortgage needs now and in the future. She has received several accolades throughout her career, including being an nine-time recipient of the Five Star Professional award, consistently a Presidents Club winner and included in the Scottsman Guide Top 1% of Originators in the country, and received 5 stars on YELP.

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.
