Been in the business now for 17 years and been with Homestead Financial for 14 years. My team and I focus on offering the best in customer service and the importance of building strong relationships with our referral partners. Product knowledge is the key to executing home loans quickly and efficiently. Between my transaction coordinator, processor and myself we have almost 60 years of experience. I close nearly 200 loans a year, both purchase and refinance. Several of these were closed in just a few weeks’ time, start to finish.
My favorite part of being a loan officer is the interaction experienced between myself and all the clients. I often meet and get to know them on a personal basis. I find a lot of gratification by closing loans and teaching others about their options and creating ideas for saving money. I take it one step further by paying for everyone of my clients appraisals.
Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Who is the one person, dead or alive, that you would want to meet?
Abraham Lincoln. He was known as one who united people. He was a peacemaker just like I strive to be.
If you weren’t in the loans game, what would you want to be doing?
Financial Advisor just like my mother or maybe a farmer. Country boy at heart.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin. I could always lose a few pounds or maybe have darker hair (as that its almost white now) but overall I am fine with who I am. If I had to pick I’d say I wish I wasn’t as sensitive. Do not take me to a sad movie, without a Kleenex box. LOL.
Favorite athlete of all-time?
Would you rather be on the beach or in the mountains?
Oh that's a toughie. Depends on the day. I like my sunshine and beach but love the peace of being up in the mountains. Please don’t make me choose.
What’s the one song you would absolutely crush during karaoke?
Ice Ice Baby, by none other than Vanilla Ice.
Would you rather be invisible or be able to fly and why?
Fly for sure. The view would be great. I'm not really wanting to sneak around.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Getting to know and help people. Love the interaction.
