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.

My Story

I want to earn your business. I believe the loan process should be easy, ­­­­­­quick, and hassle-free. Whether you are my client, the real estate agent, or my business partner who referred me, you will always be kept up to date with world-class communication and service. I pride myself on being a professional advisor who is an expert in the industry with jumbo and luxury loans and is responsive and always available for my clients.  From application to the closing table, I will be in direct contact every step of the way.

I have been in the mortgage business for over 8 years and have helped thousands of families achieve the American Dream of homeownership. Having a background in accounting and financial services has allowed me to provide a consultative approach with my clients to help them save money and build wealth.

All of this adds up to an award-winning experience for my clients and partners.  I’ve been honored to receive the Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators Award for multiple years and have also had the pleasure of working in sales management.

I take great pride in my work and in doing the right thing for all of my clients.  Whether you need to purchase a new home, refinance your existing home, cash out equity, buy an investment property, or any other goal you are looking to achieve – I will work with you to find the right mortgage to meet your needs.
