“I’ve been working with folks to finance homes since 1982. Yes that dates me, but it has changed me as well.
We all know the reality. “Working with folks”, is a fancy way of saying I have provided them with financing. I have met very few people who could pay cash for a home.
Mortgage Lending was and is my first real job.
33 years and thousands of closed transactions later I find that I am more focused on the family involved than the transaction.
Don’t get me wrong. I am still money motivated, as we all should be. It’s how we provide for our family and put our children through college.
After the financial crisis the common phrase was “not everyone should get to own a home”.
To be clear, I hate that phrase. It’s not just about housing for thousands of us. It’s about the roof over our heads. It’s about the Christmases, the birthdays, the family, the right school district, and the lifelong friendships of neighbors. It’s about our spot on this earth. For our grandparents it was the family farm.
For US it’s the right home in the right neighborhood and the right environment for our children to go up in and create their own memories.
I don’t need to sell you on this. It’s the American dream. It’s what you need to do. And it’s what I need to do.
Home ownership and the mortgage process is frustrating and much harder than it used to be. But home ownership is a worthwhile journey… and it’s one I am both familiar with, and proud to be a partner with you on.
