Hi There!

Thanks for the opportunity to assist with your mortgage financing needs. With over 20 years in the industry in various production and operations roles, I have a solid working knowledge of a wide variety of loan programs, an understanding of the ebb and flow of underwriting guidelines, and if I don’t know the answer off hand I know how to find it.

I fell into the industry many years ago as a fluke and found that I had a natural flair for the work. The love of helping a family get into their first home, or an empty nester on fixed income be able to refinance to afford a better lifestyle, came later as I began to get more comfortable with navigating the complexity of each individual transaction. At the end of the day,


Karen was a pleasure to work with. Very timely response times to all questions. She did a great job explaining all the details in understandable terms. We would absolutely recommend to friends and family.

Karen went above and beyond during the entire process. She answered all of my ridiculous questions and took time after hours to help explain things and the process to my wife and I.

We have had the privilege of working with Karen on multiple occasions. She did our first refinance when interest rates started to drop. That process was so smooth and she was able to explain everything that was going on with ease. About six months later Karen reached out to let us know rates had gone down even further and asked if we were interested in running numbers to see if it would make sense to do another refi. We moved forward with this process and in total Karen was able to save us $350 a month plus we were able...

Karen, was my manager when I started in the mortgage industry about 15 years ago. I still remember how she took me under her wings and taught me the ropes. I remember her saying two important things.. 1. Be honest to the client whatever the situation maybe. They will accept your honesty. 2. Make sure you've tried every avenue to make sure that a client's loan is approved. She has in-depth knowledge with regards to loan products which is a key to a loan officers success. She has excellent time management skills. Highly...

Karen did a phenomenal job making sure our loan process was seamless. She was efficient, accurate, and made the entire experience was stress-free. Karen was always a step ahead for us. She went over and beyond to guide us, made sure all deadlines were met, we had all information needed for a wonderful home buying experience. We also worked with her recommenced realtor--Dream Team! Highly recommend!!

- Robyn A.

Karen stayed in touch with me throughout the loan process and provided the information I needed. She also was more than willing to find me information when I needed it and even wasn't bothered when I asked her to resend some information months after closing to update my records when I couldn't find a particular document. I'll be moving again within five years and I will definitely work with her again.

- Rebecca G.

Karen was amazing! Our refi was fast, professional and easy. Highly satisfied!

- Traci T.

Karen was very generous with her time in ensuring that all of our questions were answered. She held our hand figuratively through our refinance process at the beginning of the pandemic. We have financed mortgages with other companies where the process was horrible. The difference was like night and day.

- Jaclyn B.

I was a mortgage insurance representative for close to 30 years, and Karen was my customer for many of those years. She was always so nice to work with, and she always did a fantastic job. We reviewed many of her loan files over the years, and it was always a pleasure to have the opportunity to place mortgage insurance on them. She is extremely knowledgeable and detailed, and always goes above and beyond to explore all options to make a borrower's loan work. She really does go the extra mile for her customers, and she...
