Ask A Mortgage Question


I am a Sr. Loan Officer with Guild Mortgage Company. Guild Mortgage has been in business since 1960 and I have been in the real estate industry since 1996. Knowledge, experience, honesty, and access to different loan products make a significant difference in your real estate transaction. This is what I bring to the table. I specialize in educating you throughout the loan process whether you’re a first time homebuyer or a seasoned investor. I have seen a lot of cycles and change throughout the years and my goal is to help navigate you through them. I will provide you with excellent customer service and competitive rates. Whether you are a first time homebuyer, upgrading, downsizing, buying an investment property, or refinancing, I can help you find the right solution to your home financing needs. It is important to understand that not all borrowers are the same. There are several factors that determine the type of loan you qualify for. I look forward to helping you discover how these factors affect you and earn your business.
