My career in home lending started nearly 20 years ago as an originator for a small brokerage shop in Rapid City, SD. Since that time, I started and sold my own highly successful mortgage bank, helped start up numerous other mortgage offices, and I currently manage an amazing team of mortgage professionals in SD and ND. Although, what I am most proud of is that I have helped hundreds and hundreds of families get into their dream home. Whether for my own clients or helping other originators on our team, I take pride in the fact that my extensive knowledge, experience, and tenacity makes me a valuable resource to help out in many situations where other lenders would give up or pass on the challenge. I believe my past clients and business associates would agree I promote and practice prompt, courteous service and provide great communication in all my dealings. I am married to my talented and beautiful wife Nikki who also helps me in all aspects of our business. We have 5 amazing children that keep us on our toes. In my spare time I really enjoy traveling, golfing, and most of all- spending time with my family.
I believe what makes you successful is finding something you love doing and then offering it to others. I am fortunate to have found a position with Unify Home Lending that allows me to do that. I have been working in the mortgage industry since March of 2013. I started as a loan processor and soon after moved into underwriting. With experience in both of these positions, I gained knowledge of the industry and know how the loan process works. Now, as a loan originator, I am able to have the one-on-one contact with clients and offer the exceptional service I believe should be expected in every deal. I believe each client deserves attention and service that you would expect from a friend, and I intend to deliver on that promise.
Prior to working in the mortgage industry, I worked as a licensed real estate assistant for about 5 years, so I am very familiar with the home-buying process. I was born and raised in Rapid City, SD. My husband, Cody, manages our branch in South Dakota and has nearly 20 years experience in the industry. We work together a good share of the time and I have learned so much from him.
We keep busy outside of work with our 5 children. We love going to the lake, boating, traveling, and spending time with our friends and family.
