About

I've spent my 15 year mortgage career striving to provide my clients with exceptional service and mortgage expertise. There have been constant changes in our industry, and I work diligently to understand underwriting guidelines and loan options, assuring my clients receive the best possible assistance on their loans! I love educating clients, referral partners, and the public on mortgage programs and pricing, and have been published extensively by Mortgage News Daily, Yahoo, and TheBasisPoint.com. I have also been quoted in the LA Times, Washington Post and Realtor.com. Proud to have just been named a 5 Star Lender by 5 Star Awards and St Louis Magazine for the sixth consecutive year. Only 3% of all lenders nationally receive this honor, thanks to my clients/agent partners for their great feedback! Specialties: Helping families obtain housing for disabled/senior members, utilizing new guideline options other lenders may not offer, credit counseling; loan engineering, and post loan follow up to ensure my clients always have the best possible loan for their specific circumstances and goals.
