The Most Important First Step.


Financing can be stressful. Let me help you navigate the process and connect with the right people.

As a buyer the most important step is securing funds. If you are paying cash for a home - it is important to make sure that all money is readily available. If you are looking to finance a home with a home loan, it is important to chat with a trusted lender and establish your loan approval amount. 

When looking at which mortgage company or bank to work with - it is important to chat with a few lenders to make sure you feel 100% confident in who you are working with. Different companies will charge different fees - it is also best to make sure you are getting the best deal. A few questions to ask are: 

  • Are you available on weekends and evenings?
  • What makes you and your company different than other banks?
  • Do you have competitive fees and rates?
  • What types of home loans do you offer?
  • Do I qualify for any downpayment assistance programs?
  • What documents and information do you need for the loan application?
  • How can you help me ensure I have a strong portfolio when I am ready to make an offer on a home?
