As a licensed mortgage professional for more than 20 years, I am still originating every loan with the same energy and consideration like it is my first. My senior year in college, I was lucky enough to intern with CPA firms, who did audit for many companies in the mortgage world. After graduating with an Accounting and Sociology degree, it was a no brainer, mortgages is where I needed to be. In 1995, I started working in the mortgage world. I learned the industry backwards; helping head a big portion of the accounting department, working in many of the company's developmental projects and finally moving to originations in 1999.
What I loved about origination, and still love about originating, is the connection and interaction with my clients. Though I am here to consult, a big part of my job is listening and asking the right questions. During these conversations with my clients, I learn a lot about their financial goals and what they see for their future. The right mortgage product plays a big role in this type of planning. The past 20 years has brought many ups and downs in our industry but my goal still remains the same, to provide the best service to my clients throughout the process of the loan and through random updates to educate them on the current market and options.
Securing a home loan may seem overwhelming so I work hard to remind my clients that we are in it together. I am readily available for questions and constantly updating my clients with their loan status. We are both looking for the smoothest and most seamless process and the best way to achieve this is to work as a team.
I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago where sports were a big part of my childhood which is why I love the team-like mentality. I was blessed with twins, a boy and a girl, in 2004. Like most, I try my best to juggle work and family but most importantly, while enjoying life along the way. I am happy to say that even after 20 years, I enjoy the relationships that I have built throughout this industry, whether with past and present clients and all the co-workers along the way. I am thankful this is the route my life has taken.
