Since 2004, I've guided hundreds of buyers and homeowners through the loan process. I strive to provide the very best in customer service by being equally accessible and knowledgeable in order to create clients for life. My focus and commitment is to the best interest of each client and their individual financial goals. Buying a home is a complex process, but it doesn't have to feel daunting and stressful. I educate my clients from our very first conversation with the hope of removing the uncertainty and anxiety from the process. Every client has a unique set of parameters and deserves a customized mortgage. By devising a plan that meets these needs and offering a mortgage product they truly qualify for, the results are a concise loan approval and a prompt closing. Not every loan is easy or straight-forward and some require pure creativity and perseverance to deliver. My clients can count on me to meet any obstacles head on. I've spent nearly all of my entire 15+ year mortgage career at Guaranteed Rate. Our cutting-edge technology platform and an extensive product matrix means we make the mortgage process both efficient and competitive while offering something for everyone. I live on the North Shore in Wilmette with my husband Ward, sons Wyatt & Bodhi, and 2 Australian Shepherds, Mags & Riot.
