Whether you’re buying, selling, refinancing or building your dream home you need to have confidence in the loan officer you select. Since market conditions and mortgage programs can change frequently, you need to make sure you’re dealing with a top professional who is able to give you quick and accurate financial advice. As an experienced loan officer, I have the knowledge and expertise you need to explore the many financial options available.

I started out in the financial area by getting a BS in Finance from the University of Utah. While attending there and afterwards for eighteen years I was with the Federal Reserve Bank in Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Having several management positions, I found it to be a valuable experience in the financial area but felt that there was something missing in my work experience. So, I started in the mortgage business in 1989 and have found it to be satisfying in being able to establish a personal relationship and help others have a great home buying or refinancing experience. That was my greatest satisfaction. In my personal time, I love the outdoors, skiing and hiking. I like to travel and have been to Europe twice. I have a commercial pilots license and have flown in most of the western states and Hawaii.

I’d like to invite you to browse our website to learn more about our company, Utah Mortgage, which was selected as the 2017 Best of State for mortgage companies. Also, give me a call to discuss your financial goals and what programs we can work together on to achieve those. Next, please use our secure online application to get started. After you’ve applied, we can discuss the details of your loan and what we need to do to move forward. As always, you may contact me anytime by phone, e-mail or fax for personalized service. I promise to always provide good communication so that you always know how each step is progressing. I look forward to working with you.
