Buying or even refinancing a home is like taking an airline flight cross country. When you start on your trip, you have no idea how the trip will go. Neither does the pilot! You could run into 50 different types of turbulence, or you could have a smooth flight and land on time. Certainly, the pilot will try to use his or her experience to navigate around storms and go for the smoothest flight plan, but if they’re honest, they cannot promise a turbulence free trip. Their job is simply to get you to your destination in the least time and with the least aggravation while keeping you informed throughout the trip.
As your Lender for Life, I see myself as the pilot of your plane. My job is to help you plan for your home, get you through the mortgage process, and provide you with attention to detail. As my mission statement says: you will have my care, concern, and commitment. At the same time, your home loan terms will be fair, reasonable, and offered with the least possible aggravation.
No turbulence is not something I can promise, but I can guarantee I’ll use my experience which began in 1988, and my expertise to take you on the smoothest flight possible.
And if we hit TURBULENCE…..I won’t bail out on you!
I’ll be with you every step of the way, throughout your “flight” until I get you to your destination, HOME.
