I have been in the mortgage business since the early 1980's and have had the opportunity to be involved in every facet of the business including underwriting. Prior positions included management of operations, underwriting, and sales. This experience allows me to understand each step of the process to simplify and expedite the closing of each loan. One of my first jobs was for a construction company, then for a real estate appraiser. My background with PMI (private mortgage insurance) companies gave me a solid background in condominium reviews in both Southern California and Hawaii. One of my custom construction positions allowed me to work with high-end clients in Southern California. I currently cover Nevada, California, and Arizona. I believe that community involvement is important. I try to give back with not just money but time. I have received national awards for community service which included volunteering for Three Square, Ronald McDonald House, Goodie Two Shoes, Rebuilding Together Nevada, among many others.
I believe that knowledge is power. I support and present home buyer education classes at several nonprofits including NHSSN, CSN, Home Today, and CPLC.
I believe in sharing and equipping our industry with networking and educational opportunities. This is important to help support the next generation of real estate professionals. Over the years, I've been active with several organizations particularly NAHREP, ARREA, among others.
I believe in the power of home ownership and wealth building. Over the years, I've received awards for top production, however what is more important to me is each time I help someone achieve their financial goals, whether it be their first home or an investment. Even more important than the dollar amount of each transaction is the satisfaction of each client who I consider my friend. I enjoy sharing my experience and knowledge to help streamline. I am grateful to be working with a company that shares my vision and passion for helping people live their dreams of home ownership. My first home was financed with a VA loan, and I especially enjoy helping veterans share the joy of homeownership.
Born and raised in Southern California, I learned the value of hard work at a young age. Business relocated me to Michigan for a couple years, then to Nevada in 1997. My husband moved here in 1976 when his father who was a career Marine relocated to Nevada as his last stop. Our kids are grown and live and work here in Las Vegas area. We both enjoy spending time with our family and friends, particularly our three-year-old granddaughter. Languages include English, Spanish, and some Choctaw.
