Everything in the mortgage process comes down to two common denominators – communication and execution. That’s where we excel in creating the best purchase, building, or refinance experience.” Russell Smith




I believe that understanding how to match the right home loan solution with each individual client’s goals and specific scenario is key to a successful mortgage loan closing - starting with the very first conversation. So, the client and I have a thorough discussion up-front to ensure the best chances of success. Throughout the home loan process, the communication and execution continue through closing and beyond. In addition, being available and providing education to my clients is a priority for me because informed clients make better decisions, close their loans on time, and feel good about those decisions.  At the end of the day, my success is measured not in the loans that I close, but in the satisfaction of knowing my clients have achieved their personal home ownership and/or financial goals in the process.
