NOTE: Also a licensed mortgage loan originator in Tennessee and Georgia.
A native of Huntsville, AL, with a finance degree from the University of Alabama, I began my career trading foreign and domestic interest rates, energy, precious metals and agricultural derivatives at the JC Bradford headquarters in Nashville, TN.
While in the hedge fund industry, I was tasked with advising the global high-net-worth community and institutional clients in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. I continued my career working as a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch and Morgan Keegan. I didn’t realize it at the time, but these experiences were providing me with the skills necessary to be a successful mortgage professional with Accurate Mortgage.
After five years, it’s still the idea of knowing that I’m helping people that tops the list of the things I like most about being in the mortgage industry. I also find it exciting that no two loans are the same, because no two people are the same. When a new client puts their trust in me to help them with their loan, my approach is to advise them. I’m not trying to sell them anything. I’m there to offer them solutions to their current situation and guide them through the process.
After working in Accurate Mortgage’s Nashville branch for a few years, I was fortunate to be able to bring that “Accurate Mortgage” experience back to my hometown. Because Huntsville is a technology hub in a rapidly growing and desirable region of the country in which to live, it just made sense to open a branch here. People come to the Huntsville area from all over the world and I’m proud to be able to help them lay down roots in such a wonderful place.
As hard as I work, I also think downtime is important. Activities that help me recharge and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the city include playing golf, watching college football, and cooking for my family and friends. Anthony Bourdain’s got nothin’ on my white chicken chili. Let me know if you want the recipe.
