Interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?

  • I have been in the mortgage business since the spring of 2010. I started off as an assistant with a loan officer who I had used to purchase my very first home. I enjoyed the process and wanted to share my experience to assist others in the home buying process. I truly enjoy helping people obtain a mortgage to get them into their dream homes.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
  • Ask what their needs are for now as well as 5 years out from now. Are they going to want to move into a larger home or downsize in the next few years? I also really want the client to be 100% comfortable with what their mortgage payment will be.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
  • My advice for first time home buyers is to trust in the process we have here at Guaranteed Rate which will allow what can be a stressful time, one that is enjoyable. No question is too small or silly~I am here to help!
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
  • Obtaining a loan does require a lot of documentation. I recommend clients take advantage of our amazing digital mortgage and TransferSafe so that they can upload the item requested. We also have for certain programs the option to have us pull your asset accounts which can be a huge time saver and less of a convenience for the customer
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
  • I grew up in Connecticut and attended Purdue University (Boiler Up!) which introduced me to the lovely Midwest. After college I spent some time in New York City before making the ultimate decision to make the move to Chicago! I am still an active Purdue Alumnae member and visit campus often. My husband and I look forward to taking our two small children (4,2) to sporting events and visit the campus in the near future.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
  • Being able to build relationships with not only my customers but real estate agents and attorneys in the field. I want to go beyond closing the transaction and have my customers feel that I did my best to make sure the home purchase experience was enjoyable!
