About Lori

I love helping families achieve major milestones like purchasing their first or second home, refinancing, or securing investment properties. Communication is key to a smooth process, and I’m thrilled to take the experience I’ve gained over 40 years and use it to educate clients, family, and friends on the homeownership process. Whether you’re new to home financing or looking for your ninth home loan, we will get it done together!

Getting a mortgage is a personal financial move. That’s why I'll listen carefully to gain a complete understanding of your unique circumstances. If you’re a first-time homebuyer, I’ll walk you through the steps to closing and resolve any questions you have. If you’ve done this before, we’ll discuss new products and rediscover how staple programs have evolved to hit your mark. From application to closing and beyond, I’ll guide you every step of the way.

I look forward to making your home loan experience pleasant and memorable by providing the level of communication and service you deserve from your lender.

Owning a home is fun and fulfilling!

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.
