In today’s rapidly changing environment, it takes an entire team to deliver an exceptional mortgage experience. We are a team of like-minded professionals dedicated to helping our clients navigate the mortgage process.

We all have unique stories and our homes are an integral part of those stories. Getting a mortgage is never a one-size-fits-all experience. It involves getting to know you and what works for you, engaging in your story, and helping you to find the right financial fit.

When it comes to financing your home, now more than ever you need to partner with a mortgage professional with experience, creativity, drive & passion. We look forward to serving you!

Senior Loan Officer

Customer service, honesty, and integrity have been the cornerstones of my business since I entered the industry in 2003. I believe a mortgage should be about building relationships, and I enjoy taking a consultative approach to the home loan process by customizing each home financing program to help you achieve your overall financial goals - both short-term and long-term.

Early in my career, I realized the value of following through on my commitments and making sure my clients were happy. Now the majority of my business comes from repeat clients and their personal referrals. I believe in educating borrowers up front and take great pride in hearing how easy the process was for my clients.

Whether you're looking for the best finance options to buy, refinance, build, or renovate, I have the knowledge to help you make the right choices for your situation. Many loan officers can get you a loan. My mission is to get you the right loan that fits your circumstances, and to provide the service to make the process fast and hassle-free.

I aim to be your trusted adviser and to serve you, your family and friends for many years to come.

Kara is absolutely the best!! My wife and I have worked with her for over 10 years and through many transactions. She has always given us the best service, not to mention the best rates out there. Totally professional and personal. Even in these impossible times she pushed our last refi through quickly and made it remarkably easy.
