About Ron

Julie Bailey is my team partner. We have worked together for 16 years. You will find that both Julie and I are very detail oriented and like to get as much documentation up front as possible so our clients will not have any surprises further down the road in the loan process.

I love helping new or existing clients see how their mortgage fits into their life long financial plan. It is important for clients to understand how liquidity and asset appreciation is affected by the mortgage plan they choose. I discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different down payment options. Quite often I refer my clients to a financial planner to help them determine how their mortgage fits into their long term wealth building plan. I also was a bond trader for 17 years before starting to originate mortgages in 1992. This background gives me a huge advantage when evaluating mortgage interest rates.

Julie and I have 42 years combined experience helping clients finance the homes of their dreams or refinance to improve their current mortgage. We encourage our clients to pick up the phone and call either of us to discuss any questions they may have. We work almost exclusively by referrals. Our goal is to provide our clients with such a Wow experience, that they refer their friends, family and co-workers to us so they can also have the same experience.

Working with Ron and Julie was an absolute pleasure! The loan approve process can be daunting, but they made it a breeze. They are extremely organized and great at communicating. Julie took the time to make sure I understood the entire process and was available any time to answer my questions. Thank you both for a great experience!
