Ask A Mortgage Question


My team and I bring over a decade of residential mortgage lending experience to CrossCountry Mortgage. Having had thrived in the mortgage and real estate business through various economic cycles, we have the expert knowledge to grow and succeed in any lending landscape.

My focus has always been oriented around understanding and exceeding the expectations of our clients and referral partners. Our philosophy is to listen to my customers needs, and respond to those needs efficiently and effectively. I approach each client's situation with a unique, personalized approach, and when it comes to getting the right loan at the right deal for our client, we will do whatever it takes. Many banks can get you into a home loan; our goal is to get you into the right loan. With my expert experience and an extensive lender network, we will find the best possible solution for my client’s individual needs. My ability to look beyond the numbers towards the bigger picture allows us to secure often hard-to-find financing for unique property types, self-employed, complex, and foreign-national borrowers.

We do it all, from city skylines, to the suburbs, to vacation homes and even to villas abroad. I am dedicated to building long-term relationships as the go-to mortgage lender for my clients and I will be there for my clients through their various home-financing needs at different points of their lives. Ten plus years of continuous repeat business through happy client referrals and our real estate agent network is a true testament of our commitment to excellence!
