I began originating mortgages 28 years ago.  Long time.... After all these years I have the same mantra that fuels my fire.  Helping people realize their dreams of owning a home. A home that is theirs, to live and grow in, to raise a family, have pets running around in, to celebrate birthdays in, to welcome Santa and the Tooth Fairy in....   I thrive on helping others.  I really care about my clients.... that is of extreme importance to me.

I also care about my referral partners.  They are on the front lines helping the client/s navigate all the nuances of a real estate transaction.  They work extremely hard for their clients to keep surprises at a minimum.  Working in tandem with the agents requires like minds and a passion for excellent service.  We each have a set of responsibilities to coordinate together so that closing dates occur on time as expected.

Working in a culture that facilitates excellence is a must.  Supreme Lending has the statistics from our satisfied borrowers and real estate agents to prove our 97.5% borrower and 98.7% realtor satisfaction scores.

My product selection is vast and if I do not have what you need, I can source it for you.
