What do you find most satisfying about your job?
Buying a home can seem overwhelming—whether it’s a first home, for a growing family, vacation home or empty-nester home. It’s a special time. Playing a part in making those dreams come true motivates and fulfills me every day. I enjoy helping make the buying or refinancing process easier for you.
What piece of advice do you most frequently get asked and what’s your answer?
When is the best time to purchase or refinance a home? My answer: Markets change and life needs change. It doesn’t matter what rates do or what your best friends are doing right now—it has to be the right timing for you.
What makes your client experience unique?
As much information is on the Internet, there’s lots of misinformation, too. Buyers today often have to make instant decisions and move quickly to secure a contract. Competition means multiple offers and buyers need to be prepared, as sellers often look for items that make buyers take more risk.
We want our clients to go beyond prequalification as a go-ahead to buy a home and be fully underwritten with a conditional approval letter so financing will be in place when they need it. This also allows faster settlements, fewer surprises and potential pitfalls.
As America’s largest bank, Chase offers full-service products as well as individualized service. We’re now expanding into the D.C. area and the addition of new banking centers has been exciting. I’m a lifelong Washingtonian and a mortgage banker for 33 years. We offer the perfect combination of lending leader and neighborhood expert who truly knows D.C. and Montgomery County.
