About Donald

Born on a dairy farm in Columbia, I learned the value of hard work and honesty from my parents at an early age. I’ve applied these values to my career as a mortgage professional for 25 years. My wife Christy and I made Somerset, Kentucky, our home in 2005 and have two daughters. As a loan officer, the best part of my job is helping first-time homebuyers in our community achieve their dream of homeownership.When you work with me, you get an expert in mortgages. I have experience with a wide range of products and am happy to answer your questions or highlight their benefits. We can explore conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, and other traditional and non-traditional programs to create a home financing plan personalized to you. From application to closing and beyond, I look forward to providing you quality service through every step of the mortgage process.On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and attending concerts. I'm also a huge Kentucky basketball fan!

Buying now means saving later

Don't fixate on rate

Get the home you want now. If rates fall in the future, you can refinance to the lower rate after 6 full payments. And, with a lender credit of up to $1,500*, you'll save upfront and thousands down the line.
