About Buzz

I’ve been originating loans since 1983, nine of which as an underwriter. My experience has led to over 6,600 on-time closings, resulting in more than $1.3 billion in closed loan volume — mortgages are what I do. I’m passionate about the financial well-being of my clients, and my commitment to meeting their needs and expectations never ends.

Every client I work with receives an outstanding customer service experience and the mortgage value they deserve. My philosophy is simple — I find the right loan that meets your needs at a highly competitive price, provides realistic expectations, and ensures an on-time closing. I’ve developed a loyal following of customers who trust that I have their best interests at heart. I’ve worked hard to develop this standard of excellence and make it my personal motto — life is in the details, and it shows. I personally manage all transactions from beginning to end, so you always know where you stand in the process. I’m licensed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin, so I can help from afar!

Whether you're a first-time buyer, a move-up buyer, or a seasoned investor, I understand that buying a home is one of the most important purchases of your life. My team and I will stand by our personalized service using Trustworthiness, Respect, Urgency, Significant value, and Timeliness. You can TRUST the Buzz!

On a personal note, I’ve been married for 47 years with three grown children and three grandchildren.
