The mortgage industry and housing market have evolved over the past four decades, says Deb, and so has she. Through each phase of life, her perspective has shifted, and by drawing from her own experiences, she finds common ground with borrowers. Currently, Deb, like many of her clients, is navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual learning for her teenagers in the Montgomery County Public Schools system, planning for college education expenses and retirement.
“I love getting to know my clients and their families, listening to their stories and guiding them through their evolving housing needs,” says Deb.
Mortgage lending is about more than the one transaction of purchasing or refinancing a home; it’s about fitting that home purchase (or refinance) into the bigger picture — long-term life plans — says Deb. She attributes her success to the time she spends getting to know her borrowers and helping them anticipate how best to leverage the transaction.
Working for Chase, a full-service national bank, also allows Deb to partner with her associates to present additional bank products and financial services to complement mortgages.
“I am thankful for my 35 years in the same industry, and the people who have invited me into their lives and shared their homeownership dreams,” says Deb. “I cannot imagine doing anything else for a career.”
