I started in the mortgage business in 2002 right as the mortgage market was about to soar into uncharted territory (and subsequently crash and burn). I learned all I could about the ins and outs of the various loan programs that existed and took in everything like a sponge. One of the most important things that has stayed with me is the importance of living and working with integrity. This is something my very first boss in the mortgage business taught me by example and I will always remember him for that. He also taught me how to solve problems and look for solutions in any given situation. I keep a piece of paper by my desk with the words "There are no problems, only solutions." as a reminder to look for the path to get things done.
Over the years, I've worked in a few different lending environments; small brokerages to medium-sized direct lenders. It wasn't until I moved south, to North Carolina in 2016, that I found the courage and desire to lead a team. In my role as Branch Manager with American Residential Lending, my goal is simple - provide the highest level of service to all clients, and build an amazing team that consistently makes a difference in the communities we serve. If you are looking for great rates and knowledgeable staff, wonderful. If you are looking for something even more meaningful, we may be your perfect fit.
