"Born and raised in the beautiful State of Michigan, I believe and live by the values of hard work, perseverance, and active communication in my every day approach to the mortgage lending process. I have had a foothold in the communities that I lend in and legitimately care about the families that I refer to as ‘clients for life.’ Upon receiving degrees from Albion College in Economics, Finance, and Speech Communications in 1994, I embarked on a career that has taken me from Wall Street to Main Street. My career started when my team of financial advisors and I began to offer mortgage financing as an added service to our clients. When the mortgage side of our business began to expand and take off in early 2002, we decided to move away from financial advising and concentrate all of our efforts on mortgage banking and never looked back. Although challenging at times, the mortgage business is an ever evolving business that allows my team and I to do our part in providing the dream of home ownership through responsible lending to our clients. We take this job very seriously and do our part every day to make our clients RAVING FANS of our team.
I currently reside in Williamston, MI with my wife Melissa, my 4 year old daughter Evelyn and our golden retriever, Indy. I enjoy traveling, skiing, golf, and spending time at our cottage in northern Michigan. I look forward to your business."
