Motto: "Always find the silver lining"
I began my mortgage career in Investor Accounting, and over the years moved on to positions such as Secondary Market, Auditing, Investor Accounting (again), Loan Officer, Branch Manager, and even owned my own mortgage company. Altogether, I have spent 30+ years in the mortgage industry.
Why Options Financial Residential Mortgage?
Options Financial provides the client with flexible decisions throughout the entire process of financing a home – not just one loan at a time. I admire the company goal of assisting a client for life; it really shows how much we value the homeowner. The integrity of my fellow Home Loan Advisors as well as other staff positions towards clients gives this company a sense of family.
Why should a potential client feel confident in selecting you as their Home Loan Advisor?
As a Home Loan Advisor, I’m constantly bettering myself and using all tools possible for the best interest of the homeowner. I care about their experience as a client, and also their general well-being as a homeowner. Decision-making can often be stressful, and my job is to inform and provide clarity. My personal motto is, “Always find the silver lining”, which is what I try to give to every client.
What would you say is the most fulfilling part of what you do?
I get the most joy from helping to make dreams come true. Some clients come to Options Financial with the idea they’ll never be able to buy a home. Turning that fate around and seeing a client buying their home is so fulfilling.
How would you describe the role of education in the process?
Education is extremely important. Any person in the mortgage business should actively keep up with any contact changes in the industry. It’s important to be the best version of yourself and your position in the mortgage industry to be able to provide the best service for homeowners.
When you’re not working, what are some of your favorite pastimes?
I really enjoy cooking, fishing, and gardening. Family is everything to me. I love having dinners with my kids and 5 grandsons!
