After 20 years in the mortgage business, I can honestly say I'm just as excited about mortgage lending today as I was on my first day! I want to help you settle into your home, because my home is such a sacred part of my life. It's where I kick my shoes off at the end of the day, where I watch my kids play in the yard and where we entertain friends and family. To be involved with helping people purchase their next home or improve their financial position with a refinance – it's pretty special to be a part of that.

Why should you choose me—and First Tech—as your mortgage lender? My clients appreciate my friendly, personal and attentive approach. It's what sets me apart from the competition. I seek to understand you and your unique needs so I can provide the best possible service and value. My reputation for responsive, personal service is evidence of the importance I place on each of my clients.

Give me a call so we can talk about your next move!

Important things to understand before getting started:

  • An application is a formal request for a loan.
  • A prequalification is a request for "a preliminary determination" on the amount the requestor would likely qualify for, and how much that credit would likely be.  A prequalification is not a loan.
