About LaRae

I’m an experienced sales manager and senior mortgage advisor committed to helping clients navigate the loan process. Every homebuyer deserves to know their mortgage options, including conventional, FHA, VA, and USDA loans, before deciding on the right loan for their home. That’s why I won't simply select a program for you – I’ll listen to your goals, provide sound advice, and craft a plan that fits your financial situation.

From start to finish, you can expect unparalleled customer service. I'll support you every step of the way with continuous loan updates and answers to every question. Your journey to becoming a homeowner starts here, and I look forward to guiding you every step of the way.

When I’m not working, you'll likely find me involved with my children and six grandchildren. My oldest grandson has been racing bikes since he was two on the Strider Bike Circuit – and I continue to enjoy attending his BMX races all over the United States. In my free time, I enjoy fundraising in my local community, walking for breast cancer, teaching financial literacy with Jr. Achievement, and gardening.

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.

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.
