Getting To Know Judy

I started in the mortgage business in 2003 when I attended a mortgage training class.

I believe you need a good foundation to be successful. Having the education gave me that foundation, which in turn, allowed me to help so many families become home owners, rather than renters.

I Specialize In

With a Bachelors of Science Degree in Accounting and Finance, my background allows me to help families that have been turned away from other financial institutions.

Specialties Include: Mortgage Loan Originating: Residential Loan Products, HomeStyle Renovation, VA & FHA 580 credit score programs, Jumbo loans, Down Payment Assistance Programs, and more.
