I believe that homeownership is key to building generational wealth over time as it offers the opportunity for long-term appreciation and equity growth all the while providing stability for communities to thrive. With that said, I also recognize that home financing can be intimidating, especially for first-time homebuyers and investors. That's why I’ll take the time to walk you through the whole process, from pre-approval to closing, ensuring you’re comfortable and confident with your decisions. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is seeing the joy and satisfaction on my clients' faces when they close on their dream home or investment property. It is truly an honor to be a part of such an important milestone in their lives, and I look forward to being a part of yours. Throughout my career in both the production and operational side of financial services, I have always believed in the importance of education. I saw firsthand how lack of knowledge and understanding can lead to poor financial decisions and losses into the tens of thousands of dollars. That's why I make it a priority to educate my clients on the various mortgage options available to them, as well as the long-term financial implications of their decisions. Having completed the lengthy Certified Financial Planner® coursework as well as having worked to obtain designations as a Certified Mortgage Advisor® and a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist®, I can confidently guide you through your homebuying journey. After several years in retail mortgages, the decision to become a mortgage broker was made so that I could provide even more value to my clients. Since I am not tied to any one lender or bank, I have access to a wide variety of loan options and can shop around to find the best interest rates and terms for your unique situation. As a loan officer with a passion for education and building wealth through real estate, I am dedicated to helping you achieve your financial goals and dreams and am committed to doing it with honesty and integrity. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned real estate investor, I am here to serve you every step of the way.
