My “why” for working in the financial sector is heartfelt and goes a long way to explaining my higher level of experience and education in the industry.  It serves as a testament to my commitment to clients.   After two life changing events in my life; one of a personal nature and the other of an industry nature, helping people better plan their home buying future is certainly something I am very passionate about.   I started out as an Administrator for a large Real Estate Firm, eventually moving into the sales force as a Real Estate Agent on the Island of Oahu, learning about the spectrum of services provided to buyers, sellers and investors in Real Estate.    Years later, I was recruited into a National Fortune 500 Title Company, serving as a Vice President & Escrow Manager; furthering my career and experience in the realm of Real Estate.   In the year 2007, after what is known in the Industry as “Mortgage Meltdown”, I became very focused on helping people who went through the loss of their homes and wanting to help them rise again to “the pride of homeownership” through meaningful education and financial planning.  I’ve served my clients from the facet of being a licensed real estate agent, to understanding the escrow and title component and now in the world of financial lending I feel as though I have come full circle in my endeavors. 

As a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialists, which I became certified as in 2016, you will benefit from that as well as my 25 plus years of experience.  It’s simple:  My goal is to help you attain your goals.   Whether it will take some time to plan or if you are right where you need to be - to start your search for property; I enjoy the relationship we build and always want what’s best for you.   One thing I always tell my clients, “it’s my job to provide you with options, you make the decision as to what works best for you.”   They may not always be the ideal options, but having options empowers you to move forward and as we all know forward movement is progress.   You can expect me to be honest, transparent and willing to patiently explain the process.   When we meet for the first time you can expect that we will discuss your goals, desires and needs.   I work hard to match them up to our loan programs that will work for you.   On a regular basis we will keep in touch, much like a financial planner as I see myself as your mortgage planning specialists.   In life, things change and I want to be sure you have a solid, trustworthy & credible person to go to and refer your family and close friends to.   Many of my clients see me as their trusted advisor for financing of any type.     

Realtors that I have worked with appreciate my working knowledge.   It creates great teamwork and allows the clients to know they have a well versed and professional team helping to support them through this exciting and sometimes overwhelming process.  

Whether you are looking at property here in the islands, along the West Coast or anywhere I can help you.  I’ve done residential loans for clients on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Lanai & the Big Island and have worked personally with investors clients for properties along the West Coast (Residential & Commercial).   At HomeStreet Bank, we have so much to offer.
