If you're in the market for a new home or wanting to refinance in Fairfield County, I'd love the opportunity to earn your business. With 15 years of mortgage origination experience in the greater Danbury Area, I have used several loan products such as FHA, VA, USDA, 203(k) rehab loans, and Fannie Mae renovation loans. I've helped several families relocate to the Danbury area from surrounding areas such as Dutchess, Putnam, and Westchester counties. I love working with first-time home buyers, watching those famiilies grow, then helping them move onto the next dream home.

 

I love giving back to my community by volunteering time with the Sherman Soccer Club, Youth Program Odyssey of Minds, local town fundraising events, and church activities. I have completed the Leadership of Danbury program and Learning Dynamics course. I am also an active member of Business Network International for the past nine years. I have been married for 13 years, and have two children.

1Rate as of 4/20/2018 3:38 PM ET. The APR calculation is based on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in the amount of $240,000 for the purchase of a single-family, primary residence with 80% loan-to-value (LTV) or 20% down payment, minimum borrower credit score of 740, and estimated points of 1% of the loan amount and origination fee of $1,295 with 360 monthly payments in the amount of $1,228. Payment amount does not include taxes and insurance which means your monthly obligation will be greater. Actual payment amount will vary based upon credit history, rates in effect at the time of consummation, LTV and other credit factors. A LTV ratio above 80% may result in a need for mortgage insurance. If mortgage insurance is required, the amount of your payment will increase. The APR is subject to change at any time prior to consummation, and individual APRs may vary for loan purchases and loan refinances due to loan programs being offered, loan volume, or other factors.  All borrowers are subject to qualification, underwriting approval, lender terms and conditions.  Terms, conditions, and rates are subject to change without notice.
