About Ed

Everyone has a different approach to home financing. Mine starts with understanding your goals and giving you as many options as possible to achieve them. After spending over 24 years in the mortgage industry as a loan officer, sales manager, and mortgage company owner, I’m an expert in quite a few home loan products. From conventional and jumbo to FHA and VA, I’ll review your options and find the right one for your plans.

From applying to receiving your keys or completing your refinance, I’ll be there to support you. I value customer service and want to provide a personalized mortgage experience. That means walking you through each step of the mortgage process, answering your questions and concerns, and updating you on your loan’s status. I look forward to making your home financing experience positive and memorable.

I’m from West Allis, Wisconsin. I attended West Milwaukee High School, received an associate degree from Milwaukee Area Technical College as a mechanical design technician, and received my bachelor’s degree in business administration from Cardinal Stritch University. While my main base of business is at home in WI, I’m also licensed in AZ, GA,IL, FL, MN, and TX. I’ve been married for 34 years with two children and two grandchildren. I love spending my free time with my family, especially heading up to Northern Wisconsin and shooting darts.

Buying now means saving later

Don’t fixate on rate

Get the home you want now. If rates fall in the future, you can refinance to the lower rate after 6 full payments. And, with a lender credit of up to $1,500*, you’ll save upfront and thousands down the line.

Down payment assistance

Turn years from now into today


Saving for a down payment can be a challenge, we get that. With our variety of down payment assistance (DPA) programs for conventional and FHA loans, you could buy a home with little or no cash.

For most of these programs, one buyer must be a first-time homebuyer, and homebuyer education and other requirements may apply.

We make home happen. Contact me today to see which option is best for you.
