Welcome to my website

I was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas and moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas.  Upon graduating I began my mortgage career as a loan officer for a large retail mortgage bank.  One year later I teamed up with a local mortgage broker, Texas Mortgage Consultants, to provide customers with a wide variety of mortgage programs.  In the height of the 2008 mortgage crisis, Texas Mortgage Consultants merged with HomeTrust Mortgage in order to gain access to the best lenders and interest rates within the industry.

As a licensed Mortgage Banker, I can shop your loan with dozens of lenders to find the best rate and loan program, perfectly tailored to fit your needs.  I have the ability to underwrite, close, and fund your loan "in-house." Complete control of the loan process ensures a smooth closing, on time with no surprises.  My top priorities are to build quality relationships and maintain reliability and integrity.

Prior to the mortgage industry, I worked as a real estate agent for numerous residential real estate brokerages.  Through my commitment to putting the interests of clients at the forefront of every transaction I was able to develop a strong foundation of referral business within the real estate and financial services industries.

On a personal level, I enjoy the many outdoor activities that Austin has to offer, spending time with friends and family, helping others, playing sports and flying recreationally.  I serve as a certified volunteer firefighter/EMT, as well as a volunteer pilot with the Civil Air Patrol squadron in search and rescue and disaster relief efforts throughout the state of Texas.
