The feeling that comes with achieving a goal you’ve set is the sort of satisfaction that actually inspires you to go after another goal. And the bigger the goal, the more satisfying the result. This is one of the reasons I enjoy being a mortgage loan advisor – I get to help others achieve their home financing goals.
I grew up in Houston, TX, and went to the University of Texas in Austin. During the next two and a half decades, I worked in various jobs in the consumer financial services field. These jobs took me to various places in the U.S., including Corpus Christi, TX; Mobile, AL; and Rochester, NY. In 2003, a transfer opportunity brought me to Nashville. After living in Texas, the Deep South and up North, I can attest to the fact that Tennessee’s weather far outweighs that in these other places, and the opportunities to hear good music are greater here, too.
I can also say that what my clients like best about working with me is that I have a very consultative style. Finances can be a difficult thing for some people to talk about with someone they’ve just met. I realize that and pass no judgement when it comes to my clients’ past financial choices or mistakes. I’m here to help my clients focus on the goal at hand.
Financial transactions can be intimidating – and buying or refinancing a home, even more so. My job is to show my clients a path to achieving their goals and then to guide them the entire way through the loan process. Communication is key to the smooth success of the loan process. That’s why I make sure I’m accessible to my clients even after normal work hours and on the weekends, too.
When it comes to my free time, I spend that with my family. I enjoy baseball practices with my son, geocaching in my Jeep with my daughter, and being poolside with both children and my wife. I also enjoy reading, listening to music and have been learning to play the piano. That was a goal I set for myself later in life, and it, too, has brought me many hours of enjoyable satisfaction.
