Not many loan officers can say their career started on television – but then again, not many real estate professionals spent 20+ years in broadcast news. After a long career as a reporter for KVUE, I realized it was time to find a new way to connect to my community. So, in 2015, I became a licensed mortgage professional, and I’ve never once looked back.
I believe that the biggest difference between a good loan officer and a great loan officer is information. It’s important to stay on top of industry trends to ensure that buyers are making the right choice for their budget. Excellent service goes far beyond the application itself, which is why I make it a priority to provide my clients with the best possible insights into the market and loan options.
As a former journalist, I also pride myself on my ability to ask the right questions. First-time homebuyers can sometimes be overwhelmed by their options, but our job as loan officers is to help our clients make informed decisions about their finances. In me, my clients will find a trusted guide who can quash anxiety and follow up with clear, concise, and consistent communication.
When not wearing my real estate hat, I can often be found outside. I’m an ardent nature lover and spent most of my weekends on area trails or visiting our many wonderful state parks here in Texas. My love of the outdoors is also why I plan to spend more time volunteering with environmental organizations in the coming years. After all, this is the only planet we’ve got.
