I’m originally from Texas, but I’ve proudly called Tennessee my home since 2004. My journey in the mortgage industry spans nearly two decades, with experience at 21st Mortgage, ORNL FCU, MIG, and Pinnacle Bank. I owe my start in this field to my uncle, who, as the VP of 21st Mortgage, hired me at the age of 18 to manage appraisals and title work for their land home deals.
What do I find captivating about this industry? Solving the unique puzzle that each loan and borrower presents. Every client’s financial goals are distinct, and I take pleasure in helping them find tailored solutions. Whether it’s guiding first-time homebuyers or assisting seasoned investors, I value my role as a seasoned mortgage professional.
Beyond work, I cherish spending my free time on the golf course, fishing trips, and hiking adventures with my wife, May, and our two young children, Lucy (3) and Crosby (4). I’m also actively involved in coaching my son’s baseball team. Our family, which includes two furry members, Jasper and Addi, loves making precious memories together.
Why do I adore what I do? I revel in helping borrowers achieve their goals and building lasting relationships. In our industry, it’s not just about loan amounts and interest rates; it’s about fostering strong connections. I firmly believe in being professional relationship builders who also happen to be loan officers. Prioritizing relationships leads to lasting success in this business.
What fuels my passion for aiding clients and collaborating with realtor partners? It’s a reflection of my commitment to building and maintaining those invaluable professional relationships. Taking care of these connections is at the core of what we do.
