Ask A Mortgage Question


I am a 1996 Springfield College graduate. I studied Physical Education and taught for several years before deciding on a career change. In 2001, I decided on becoming a mortgage professional. I started as a loan officer providing debt consolidation and home improvement loans to residents in Maricopa County, Arizona. Later, I managed a mortgage branch for Morgan Financial and extended my outreach across the state. After six years and an industry-wide meltdown in Real Estate and mortgage , I decided to open my own mortgage brokerage in Arizona. Financial Solutions and Real Estate Investments, LLC was born of the desire to break away from the corporate restrictions that limited my ability to serve the needs of more clients. During the company start-up, I also sat on the Board of Managers for Mountain Range Funding, became a managing member in several development companies, and obtained a Real Estate Sales license. I also decided to expand my market to Connecticut, my home state. I obtained a CT Real Estate Sales License in 2011 and took on an ownership role in Great Estates, CT LLC. In 2015, I moved the operations of the mortgage company to Connecticut to be closer to family and loved ones. I currently maintain licensing in both Connecticut and Arizona providing exceptional real estate and mortgage services across each state, thanks to my trusted partners and employees. I have a unique advantage over competitors in both fields as my combined knowledge allows me to foresee circumstances much sooner than my peers. This type of proactive service allows me to more thoroughly prepare my clients, improve the likelihood of a successful transaction, and mitigate my clients financial exposure during a transaction. Very simply stated, my services save you time and money while providing you with excellent representation. The company's decade-plus of service through the worst economic crises of our time speaks volumes of the company and its leadership. I am ready to service your mortgage needs regardless of the circumstances. I look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals!
