Finishing up at Brigham Young University in Utah, I couldn’t wait to begin my career in mortgage lending! What an amazing opportunity to be in a position of trust during transactions of such importance in people’s lives that involve things they care about most – their home, their family and their money.
After originating loans in Utah for a few years, I moved to Colorado to open and manage a new office for a rapidly expanding mortgage company. In 2001, a close friend of mine and I exercised our entrepreneurial spirit and started our own lending company as producing managers/owners. Our mission was to put people ahead of policies and relationships above revenue and to be a bright spot in the mortgage industry. Also during these years, I attended the University of Denver and earned an MBA from the Daniel’s College of Business.
Here at V.I.P., I am excited to continue my commitment to providing the very best customer experience possible while building high-producing teams, growing the V.I.P. brand and making a difference with a company that puts people as its priority.
When I am not working, I enjoy golf, fishing, skiing, running, Crossfit, yard work, technology, chocolate chip cookies and, most of all, time with family. My wife and I have four children. We are active in our church, and I currently serve as Steering Committee member and Sports Breakfast Committee Co-Chair with the Denver Area Council Boy Scouts of America.
I believe that a home purchase is an essential step in securing a successful future. I also believe it is very important to have people that you can rely on to be knowledgeable, up-front and trustworthy to help navigate through the home-buying process. I have worked in the mortgage industry for several years and am passionate about helping clients move into their home.
Here at V.I.P. Mortgage, I am able to truly demonstrate integrity and lifetime relationship building, as these are our company’s core values that are the foundation of every interaction and decision. As a proud Colorado Native, I attended Colorado State University where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance.
I enjoy exploring all the amenities this beautiful state has to offer from hiking, catching a Rockies game and visiting local breweries. I also have a wonderful, growing family whom I cherish and value more than anything.
Community service is also another integral part of my life. I currently serve as the Treasurer of Castle Country Assisted Living and I continue to look for ways to get further involved in church or the local community.
I have worked in the mortgage industry for more than a decade and am exceptionally versed and knowledgeable in every mortgage product available. I believe in providing expert advice, solutions, and white glove service; then following through to make sure all of my clients’ expectations and goals are met. My clients can expect an authentic experience structuring the perfect loan for their financial goals, defined by honesty and integrity.
I have been involved in Reverse Mortgages for many years and find this niche of the business extremely rewarding. Reverse Mortgages have become my passion and I am excited to be an integral part of conceptualizing and implementing VIP’s Colorado Reverse Mortgage Division. I have seen the evolution of this product and witnessed first-hand how this single product can dramatically change a person’s financial landscape for the better.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Dana, and our 7-year-old son, Connor. We definitely take advantage of the Rocky Mountains in our back yard, albeit skiing, mountain biking, or camping.
I am your mortgage professional. As a VIP Mortgage loan officer, my reputation is built on professionalism, integrity and the ability to keep transactions on track. I am dedicated to helping my clients obtain a mortgage that fits their specific financial goals. I am passionate about helping my clients and focus on bringing you peace of mind throughout the home financing process.
I am always here to answer your questions! Ultimately a successful loan closing is my main goal. My team and I use our collective skills and expertise to make that happen for you. We are 100% committed to total client satisfaction. From the first phone call to the closing, we are here for you. I can assist first time homebuyers, investors, self-employed borrowers or high net worth clients with the same smooth efficiency. Regardless of your situation, I will direct you through the process and continue to be a resource well after your loan has closed.
Upon receiving an economics degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1984, I moved to Arizona and spent a short time in consumer finance. Since beginning my mortgage career, I have had the pleasure of working with both new home builders and realtors throughout the valley. My motto is: you are not an interruption to my day, but rather the reason for my work. I will always strive to exceed your expectations and provide you with the best experience. As your trusted advisor, my goal is to become your go-to person for all of your finance needs including questions, advice and solutions when helping you buy a home. Working with a family like V.I.P. is both a privilege and a pleasure.
I am certified to originate the HUD 184 loan program. This is a very special program for Native American Borrowers. I am excited to be able to offer this loan program and to help spread the word about this financing. I am licensed in both Arizona and New Mexico and plan to soon add Colorado, Washington and California to this mix.
You can expect nothing but the best from me. I always listen, always provide honest answers and always do everything in my power to create a smooth path to homeownership.
I’m an avid reader and love creating jewelry. My husband and I are empty-nesters with a daughter in college at Northern Arizona University. We look forward to traveling and spending more time together with a now much quieter home.
My professional goal is to provide the best service and rates to my clients so that they can refer me confidently to friends and family, knowing their best interests will be looked after.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1998 (Twin Cities campus) with a BA in History. Before that I worked as a River Guide on “the River of No Return” aka The Salmon River. Before that I served a two year mission for the LDS church in Los Angles 87-89.
I’m the proud father of 2 girls and have been married to my best friend for over 25 years. My personal goals are to be the best husband and father I can be. If I can achieve that, everything else that matters will fall into place.
I am from Parker, Colorado and other than my time away at college, have called this town home for 30 years. I earned my bachelor’s in Business from Colorado State University in Fort Collins with an emphasis on real estate and finance, jump starting my career into the mortgage industry.
For more than 20 years now, I have gained extensive knowledge and experience, not only as a loan officer, but also working as a real estate broker, an appraiser and a title company rep. My hands-on experience in so many facets of the industry gives me a unique understanding of the entire transaction from start to finish. I also believe that I have important insight into the needs and wants of my realtors and apply that perspective in every purchase transaction. I am extremely service oriented and tend to develop deeply personal ties with my customers and partners. V.I.P’s focus on people and personal touch is very appealing to me and makes me proud to be a part of this team.
I became involved with horses very early in my life, and still return to the family farm to work cattle and enjoy the small-town lifestyle. I also have horses of my own, primarily for pleasure. My husband Sean and I have an 8-year-old daughter named Reese, who is the center of our life. We enjoy introducing her to all the things we enjoy, including travel, golf, and animals big and small. I am also involved in volunteering at her school and participate in activities in the classroom, sports and fundraisers.
I originally hail from a beautiful small town in Minnesota called Mahtomedi, located on White Bear Lake. I earned my bachelor’s degree in business management and psychology from Luther College, Decorah, Iowa, in 1980. After spending 21 years in the bitter cold, I relocated to Tucson, Arizona for a milder climate and spent a year in banking before moving to Mesa, landing my first job in mortgage banking.
In August 1988, I moved to Colorado, continuing to develop my mortgage career in various capacities from processing to sales manager/ loan origination. Though the industry continues evolving, I still find what I do extremely challenging and rewarding.
I have been asked on a number of occasions whether it is harder to obtain mortgage financing today than a few years ago. While more documentation is being requested today than in the past, we are still able to make home ownership a reality for many customers. Each borrower is treated with respect and is fully supported as we navigate through the mortgage loan application process to closing. Our superior customer service continues even after the mortgage closes. My team and I — including Jennifer Bishop, Lindsay Shultz and Amy Hester — are committed to making relationships for life.
My husband and I live in Central Colorado where we enjoy snowshoeing, alpine and cross-country skiing, white water rafting, fly fishing, camping and hiking. We are surrounded by the Collegiate Peaks and have climbed eight of the 14,000-foot mountain peaks affectionately known as the “fourteeners” in the area. I also enjoy cooking, reading, photography, interior design and gardening. I am currently a member of the Sunrise Rotary group, working specifically on a committee for scholarships, and early childhood reading program. In 2005, I was recognized as the Kiwanian of the year from our club in Salida.
