About Steven

Since 1991, I’ve worked with everyone from first-time homebuyers to professional athletes, Hollywood executives, and high-net-worth clients. My organized and detailed approach to home financing has led to $1.5 billion in mortgage volume and Scotsman Guide’s Top Originator rankings. No matter your goals and circumstances, I’m excited to learn your story and help you plot a path to success.

Each mortgage is as unique as you are. I’m proud to provide a personalized approach to home financing that emphasizes quality loans over quantity. That’s why we’ll start your process by discussing today’s priorities and tomorrow’s dreams. Maybe a conventional mortgage will meet your requirements. Perhaps a jumbo loan is a better fit for your big dreams. Or you could qualify for programs like FHA, USDA, or VA. Whether you’re purchasing, refinancing, or investing, we’ll find the right product for your plans.

My consideration for you doesn’t end after finding a mortgage. From pre-approval to closing and into the future, I’ll always answer your questions and make sure your home loan continues to meet your changing circumstances. I look forward to starting your home financing journey.

I grew up in the fantastic city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, then lived in Chicago for 36 years before moving my wife and two kids to our current home of Scottsdale, Arizona. I enjoy baseball, golf, hockey, travel, and psychology in my spare time. Before joining the mortgage industry, I earned a finance degree from Miami (Ohio) University.
