For more than 30 years I've been doing what I love: working with people to get them into their homes. Whether it’s their first or the scaled down home for retirement, it’s helping to facilitate dreams. In my own time, my bichon, Dakota Snow, and I are constant companions and enjoy entertaining with friends, gardening, watching foreign crime dramas, camping and road trips.
I like what I do. I have over two decades of experience in multiple aspects of mortgage lending and take great pride and satisfaction in being able to assist my clients in becoming homeowners. From application to closing, I work with you and for you to help make home ownership become a reality, not just a dream.
