I have been helping people achieve their dreams of homeownership for over 20 years, and I still love it! It is so satisfying to tell my borrowers ‘you are cleared to close’. I have found that my years of experience and knowledge in the mortgage industry work perfectly with Homestead’s dedication to providing competitive mortgage programs and services along with the highest level of customer satisfaction. It is important to me to guide my clients through the process from application to closing, and to ensure they have the right financing to fit their needs. I pride myself on being available to my borrowers and to my referral sources throughout the entire transaction and beyond.
Originally from Ohio, I moved to the Saratoga region in 1982 to ‘housesit’ for my brother while he was serving in the Navy on a nuclear submarine. I fell in love with this area and have lived here ever since.
I am passionate about my family and friends. I am extremely proud of my son, who is living with his wife and children in Juneau, Alaska, and has command of a Coast Guard ship there. I love to travel—most recently to Juneau! In my free time, I enjoy reading, crossword puzzles, and spending time with my friends and family.
Whether you are buying your very first home, upsizing or downsizing, purchasing an investment property, or refinancing, I would love to work with you. I promise you the professional and caring service you deserve!
