I have been in the mortgage banking industry since 1987. Starting as a Loan Originator and eventually becoming the President & CEO of my own mortgage banking firm. We employed over 150 people and funded more than 100 million per month in residential home loans at our peak. I have seen every interest rate climate imaginable plus many changes to our industry.
One thing that has never changed is my commitment to my clients and my desire to deliver results to my clients that are second to none. The financing of a home for most people is the most significant obligation they will incur during their lifetime. As such, my goal is to make that experience as pleasant as possible while minimizing the natural stress associated with financing a home from the consumer side of the equation.
I have been married for over 21 years and my wife and I have three daughters and a son. In addition to raising a family I have always been very active in the community especially with youth sports. For the past 4 years I have been the Head Varsity Baseball Coach at Gilbert Christian High School. I believe we all have an obligation to give back to our community.
