Know that your happiness is my only
goal. There are few things in life more
important than your home.
I understand that a home is about
making memories and a place where
dreams come true. It’s about family,
friends and experiences you cherish. A
home is where life takes place.
My part in this process is to help you
easily, quickly and safely reach the
next chapter of your life.

Expect prompt and caring service.
All of the correct information, immediately.
Find exactly what you want quickly and easily.
Expect me to know everything about the home, the
neighborhood and your dreams.
Expect me to guide you through every step of the process.
The ultimate real estate experience.
I fully expect to honor your rights and because of that, our
journey will be mutually rewarding.

Prequalification vs. Preapproval
Prequalifying for a mortgage helps
you determine how much home
you can afford.
Prequalification doesn’t mean

Preapproval means the lender has
approved your actual loan amount.
Preapproval puts you in a better negotiating position
