About Darrell

For more than 30 years, I’ve assisted hundreds of clients with their personalized home financing goals. I take my time to inform and prepare my buyers for the home loan experience while tailoring a loan that fits their plans. You can count on my consistency, honest communication, and confidence every step of the way.

My long-time mortgage expertise helped me develop a broad understanding of home programs, such as conventional, FHA, VA, jumbo loans, and many more. To ensure your transaction goes smoothly, I’ll keep you up to date on your loan’s status and be available seven days a week to answer your questions. The keys to your dream home are closer than you think, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to help you take the next step forward.
