Originally from New York, NY, I’ve been in the Sarasota area since 2004. My family moved to the area, and although they were the driving force behind my decision to move here, I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the town and all it has to offer. Sarasota is rapidly growing, and it is a wonderful place to live and work. Believe it or not, I wasn’t always interested in a career in the mortgage industry (though I have always found it fascinating). I started my college career at the State University of New York – Purchase College for Liberal Arts, where I completed my pre-requisite courses. I then transferred to the International Academy of Design & Technology in Tampa, FL, where I studied fashion. I’ve always had a creative side, so fashion design seemed like a natural choice. However, once I took a part-time job as a receptionist for a mortgage broker, I discovered my true calling was in the mortgage industry. I quickly became a full-time loan processor, where I discovered I was good at evaluating information to help people through the loan process. It may sound cliché, but I truly do love helping people achieve the quintessential American Dream and being a part of helping them own their own home!
My passion has always been to connect and help people by enhancing their lives. Although the relation between fashion and the mortgage industry may seem unconventional, they are actually quite similar. In fashion, you work with a client on a personalized basis to discuss their needs, their wants, and their expectations. You tailor their idea based on your personal knowledge to fit their lifestyle, personality, and budget.
I approach obtaining a mortgage with my clients in almost the same manner. I offer a personalized approach to each client, tailoring their needs to what best fits their lifestyle. Purchasing a new property can be an exciting, yet stressful process. I am here to support, educate, and reduce any stress by always being available to provide straight forward, easy-to-understand answers to all your questions.
If you have any questions or if I can help you find the Loans For Your Dreams®, please do not hesitate to reach out! I would love to serve you and your family.
