As a Mortgage Loan Originator with KS StateBank I’m eager to put my dual business degrees from Kansas State University and my experience to work. I’m ready to provide you with the knowledge and know-how that will not only make the lending process go smoothly, but will help you find the right loan and term for your situation. The financial aspects of home buying can be stressful and overwhelming, but they don’t have to be with me in your corner. I pride myself in being a trained and caring professional that will be with you every step of the way.

 

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer, looking to trade up, wanting to look for better rates, or cash-out options, I can help you before you ever make an offer on a property. I am happy to help you get a clear picture of what type and amount of loan is realistic for you by reviewing your budget, needs and expectations. There are many factors to consider when getting a home loan; interest rates are only one element of the complete package. I will help you review all your options so you can concentrate on making the best and most informed decision.

 

I look forward to working with you so that we can start making your home-ownership dreams come true.
