My Philosophy

While mortgage banking continues to evolve and become more regulated and automated, this is and will always remain a high-touch, relationship-oriented business -- a business based on the "5 Ps," yes 5: Products, Pricing, Process are a given, but then you need People and Passion! I bring more than 25 years of Mortgage Banking experience, and with that comes all the commensurate technical skills and diversified knowledge. But skills and experience alone don't equal success in this very competitive yet close-knit community. It's my compassion and empathy for serving the people working every day, in all the various functions within my clients 'shops', working hard to process, underwrite and close loans. It's my passion to go that 'extra mile' to find the unique solutions that best fit my clients' needs, to find the products and programs to expand their markets, the pricing to maximize their revenue, and the customer service and operational efficiencies to minimize their costs, maximize their warehouse turn times and ultimately maximize their bottom line!
