In speaking with others about her experiences she realized that many people had the same struggles yet nobody to help them along the way. It was at the request of a mentor and with the encouragement of many friends, she decided to combine her professional expertise with her strong desire to help others along the same path she took her first step towards becoming a loan originator. “Compared to my own purchase, most are a walk in the park”. Every client is shown the same level of care and dealt with in the same compassionate manner. There are few people better suited for a career in residential lending.
