Before I got into the mortgage business, I worked in securities and did financial planning. I had a guy who was about to make a bad financial decision. I wanted his business, but with the financial know-how I have, I couldn’t let him do it. It wasn't the right plan for him. The goal is to always help the customer. Having experience in additional financial areas, in addition to mortgage lending, helps accomplish this goal.
I’m big on looking at the rates and helping clients explore refinancing. The numbers matter. A lot of clients are really stuck on that idea of "I want a lower payment." The customer is always right, but if I can do it, keep them in a comfort zone and save them money over time, then that’s what I enjoy about what I do.
My kids are awesome! I have an 18-year-old son who is a college freshman and a 15-year-old daughter who is a high school freshman. They bring my wife and me constant challenges and reasons to smile. You forget how lucky you are sometimes to have great kids.
I’ve always been a pretty blunt person and he has certainly rounded off some of those edges. Raising my son Carson has altered my views on the world. Carson has made me laugh every day since he was born. He looks at the world differently and he’s not afraid to question anything. If you’re having a bad day, go have a five-minute conversation with him. He is not afraid to be himself.
My family lives in Greenwood. My wife and I were both raised here. We moved to Arizona for nine years and enjoyed the housing crash out in the sun. When things went south, we decided to come back home to Greenwood. It's fantastic to be home!
There’s a documentary called "The Big Short" that is a walkthrough of how the markets crashed. If you’re in the mortgage business, it’s a must-see. It articulated a lot of things that happened. If you had a pulse, you got a loan. In Arizona, everything was amplified so it made me pick my next opportunity very carefully, which is why I was excited to find a career in a place like Citizens Bank.
Citizens Bank represents everything important to me: closing loans on time, believing in helping clients, delivering great customer service. Our bank wants to stick a pin in the local area and take care of everyone around the community.
I work in home loans where "no" doesn’t always mean no. Many loans are automated these days but at Citizens, we handle them personally so we have the ability to make exceptions. During the approval process, we will do everything we can to get a "yes." Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
