RESIDENTIAL MORTGAGE LENDER
Compass Mortgage logo
Compass Mortgage

After 23 years in the securities industry operations space, helping large financial companies, I was looking for a change, where I could serve individuals.

I think what differentiates me from other loan officers is I am willing to do whatever it takes (legally) to help buyers to become homeowners. It may mean working for several months to enhance credit to get them the right type of loan for their situation. I enjoy helping people save money and improve their finances through refinancing or consolidating debt.

For people 62 years and older, I can help them access their home equity to eliminate their current mortgage payment or to provide a lump sum, line of credit or a monthly cash flow, all with no mortgage payment.
