Responsive, Knowledgeable, Patient, Dedicated, Always Available, these are a few of the common descriptions given by those that mean so much to me – my clients!     Below you can see the reviews, but it is my background that created this strong foundation.

This foundation begins with a  strong & close family of 5 who grew up in Northern Ohio, who were taught the importance of trust, hard work, and doing the job right the 1st time!   I received an MBA from West Virginia University, worked in the corporate world of AT&T for 16 years before becoming a stay at home dad for 3 years.    For the past 16 years as a Loan Officer at Equitable Mortgage, I have closed over $300M in loans, not on my own, but with a great team of support!

My spare time is spent with my wife, Lisa for the past 31 years and two wonderful children; Ally & Blake.  With homes in Victorian Village, OH, Lake Norman, NC and NYC, along with rehabbing and selling over 26 homes the past 12 years, I have garnered lots of real estate knowledge and understand the loan process and importance to getting a deal closed.

It is critical to me that my team “always” delivers on our commitments to the client, be available for that weekend or late night call to remove a stress point and to be ready for closing well before the closing date.  I look forward to working with you, please call me anytime; 614-668-7722.
