Residential Mortgage Loan Originator
Welcome to my website, and congratulations on taking the first step in your home financing or refinancing journey. On behalf of myself and my team, we look forward to putting our expertise to work for you! Whether you're buying, refinancing or building your dream home, working with an experienced mortgage team can make all the difference in the world.
You probably have lots of questions. How much house can I really afford? Which type of mortgage best fits my needs? As an experienced mortgage loan originator, I can answer your questions. I have the knowledge and expertise to help you explore your financing options and ultimately help you make the right choice for your unique situation.
I've been in the mortgage industry for more than 15 years. After growing up in Houston, I attended St. Edward’s University where I fell in love with Austin. I think one of my greatest strengths is my compassion and attention given to all of our borrowers. I really care about each situation and understand that not all borrowers are the same. Having a degree and background in International relations and Spanish helps me as a bilingual asset to Smart Choice Mortgage! I love real estate and sales, as well as the intense details of lending.
When I'm not pushing loans through, I spend time with my two daughters Emma and Cate along with my husband and college sweetheart of 15 years.
I mainly want you to know that you’re in good hands and can have the peace of mind knowing that we are committed to providing our customers with a home financing experience that will exceed your expectation. We offer a wide variety of loan programs with competitive interest rates. We are excited and look forward to working with you.
If at any time you have questions or maybe unsure about something, do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Again, welcome and congratulations!
