About Paul

After more than 20 years working on the title side of the real estate industry, I’m excited to be part of a very experienced top team at CrossCountry Mortgage as a loan advisor.

With years of success and having accomplished my career goals, it was the right time for me – with the support of my family – to pivot to the mortgage industry. It’s been the perfect space for me to continue helping clients and real estate partners achieve their life and business goals by utilizing my skill set.

I’ve always worked hard to set myself apart from others through my unwavering commitment to helping people. I firmly believe a successful business starts with strong partnerships based on trust, proactive communication, and growth. Whether I work directly with a homebuyer or receive a referral from an agent, I can assure you the same level of concierge service, commitment, and passion that has made me successful throughout my career.

If you or anyone you know wants to purchase a home, refinance, or get a home loan checkup, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m ready to make your mortgage a win.
