About Highlands Residential Mortgage

Your Family. Your Future. Our Focus.

Highlands Residential Mortgage was created in 2010 in the midst of uncertainty and rapid change in the mortgage industry. A group of like-minded seasoned veterans came together to create a company with an employee-focused culture. A culture that values its members both personally and professionally and a company built on the idea that the customer comes first! We believe Highlands Residential Mortgage is such a place. Our Mission to value people drives everything we do.

“I truly want to earn your business. I believe in honesty, transparency, and ­providing top of the line service.  As a “connector”, I can help with referring you to whatever service or professional you may need. I leverage technology for efficiency but keep the personal touch front-and-center. I have been in the mortgage business for over 27 years and have helped hundreds of families achieve the American Dream of home ownership. My goal is to inform, educate, and advise my clients to help them best manage their financial needs. Regardless of your mortgage dreams, I will work with you to find the right mortgage to meet your needs. I want to be YOUR Local Mortgage Guy. I live here, work here, and believe in COMMUNITY.”
