I have been a home mortgage loan specialist for more than 20 years and am fortunate to have helped several thousand individuals and families. My passion is to get to know your whole situation, explore all opportunities, and come up with the best solutions.
Please note: You will be taken to an application page that will require you to create an account if you have not created one already.
If you are looking for a lower rate to ease cash flow or a shorter term to get your mortgage paid off sooner, we can help you make the RIGHT decision.
Getting a new mortgage to replace the original is called refinancing. This process allows the borrower an opportunity to obtain a different interest term and/or rate. The first loan is paid off, then the newly refinanced loan goes into effect.
It is common for people to refinance when they have equity in their home, which is the difference between the amount owed on their mortgage and the appraised value of the home. In that situation, the borrower has an option to “cash-out” (hence the term cash-out refinance) the value of their home equity allowing them to remodel their home, consolidate debt, pay for college, or other expenses.
