When a person is able to put down roots in a thriving community and participate as a dedicated member of that community, it only makes the person and the community stronger. As a native of Rutherford County, a lifelong resident of Middle Tennessee, a homeowner for many years and someone who helps others achieve their dreams of homeownership for a living, I’ve experienced this myself and have seen, many times over, how being a contributing member of a community has a lasting, positive effect on a person’s life.
More than a few of my family members made their careers in the construction business, but I was always intrigued by the home financing side of things. I started in the mortgage business as an assistant then became a loan processor, where I learned the ins and outs of the various loan guidelines. I worked my way up to branch assistant and then became a mortgage loan originator. I have no doubt that learning the mortgage process from the back end has given me a unique advantage in the industry. There are few loan originators who can look into a loan file from the processor/underwriter perspective to head off any potential problems or use that processing knowledge to move a loan through the process at a fast pace.
Making the process a bit simpler on the front end makes for a smooth transaction. I would never say that the loan process is always stress-free, but I like to make the process fun and exciting for all of my clients. In doing so, I find that lifelong friendships are established and that most of my clients end up becoming more like family by the time it’s all over. And although there’s nothing like seeing a client get the keys to their new home, the “numbers geek” side of me is just as excited when I can show a client how much money they can save through the refinancing process.
When I’m not focused on helping my clients, my fiancé and I watch my son play baseball all but three months of the year. We also love coming up with new ideas to make our home beautiful, as we always have some kind of project going. And we spend lots of time with our beloved dog, Barkleigh. She goes wherever we go when we’re not working. As a family, we also share a love of classic cars, fixing up the two classic cars we have and going to car shows. So, if you happen to see me in a bright red, 289 ’65 Mustang with chrome Riddlers next to you at the light, be sure to give me a wave and say hello.
