I began my career in banking as a result of buying my first home. I was referred by a family member to a mortgage broker in order to apply for a loan. Being a first-time homebuyer and not knowing what to expect, coupled with the fact that as it turns out, the mortgage broker was more interested in a commission than me; the process wasn’t enjoyable to say the least. Fortunately for me, I went with another mortgage lender that walked me through the loan process, from start to finish. Not long after moving into that home, it came to me, there are a lot of Veteran’s out there just like me buying their first home; and they could benefit from having one of their own, committed to walking them through the process. So, after serving in the Marine Corps, Infantry, and majoring in Political Science in school; on a whim, I applied for a home lending position with a bank. Needless to say, I got that job and thus began my career in banking. Over the years, I had the opportunity to help many individuals and families buy their first home, refinance their existing home and help them achieve their financial goals.
