I have served in many roles throughout my career to include processing, originating, and managing. I pride myself on the fact that over 50% of my business each year comes from previous clients whose trust I have earned and who are kind enough to come back to me. The other 50% comes from my realtor partners who are more like friends, who just happen to do real estate. I am approved by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission to teach the continuing education course I authored entitled, “Mortgage Knowledge is Power”. This four-hour class is designed to educate realtors on the mortgage process, different loan types, the roles of various parties involved, and to dispel myths that exist about mortgages in general. I also serve on the Genworth Mortgage Advisory Board.
My wife and I live in Apex with our two teenagers, Ella and Kyle. As a family, we founded a non-profit called “The Red Balloon Project” to help the worries of seriously-ill children float away for a day. I am the author of three inspirational books, Holy It!, The Second Day and Mess to Message. I am working on my fourth which is due in late 2021.
The mortgage business has been my passion for over 20 years because it encapsulates all that I love – interaction with people, the ability to serve and educate, the development of trust in a relationship, real estate, and finance. I consider it an honor to work with people on such a crucial aspect of their financial lives.
Experience. Genuine Concern. Humor. I utilize these three qualities to provide as smooth a transaction as I possibly can. My experience and desire to educate will help you to understand the process fully, and to have as simple and enjoyable a process as possible. My concern for you and your family goes a long way toward ensuring that things go well and that you are fully informed throughout the transaction. My sense of humor may not be stage-worthy, but it goes a long way toward making a process that people worry about, a fun one instead.
