Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Windsor, Rohnert,Glen Ellen, Forestville, Graton, Sonoma County California.
For over 25 years we have been grateful to call Santa Rosa and the beautiful Northern California wine country our home. It’s been said that if you are comfortable in your environment, you will thrive and it’s true. What’s not to love about Sonoma County and it’s beautiful year round weather, drop dead gorgeous scenery in every direction, wonderful communities of ‘real’ people, world class wineries, restaurants and spas, and it’s close proximity to magnificent San Francisco. Tourists come from all over the world to visit the wine country and we are lucky enough to call it home. We love it and everything about it suits us perfectly in so many ways.
My husband, Drew, and I raised our family here and are very proud that our son Glenn works with me as processor and assistant. After proudly serving our country in the United States Marine Corps for five years, he and his wife Jamie returned to Santa Rosa and he has been learning the ropes of the mortgage industry. He figures that if he could survive the Marine Corps, this challenging real estate market and lending industry upheaval we’re going thru are no big deal. Spoken like a true Marine and we couldn’t be more proud of him. Semper Fi!
Our daughter Kelley and her husband Matt live in Oakland, CA and are expecting their first child, so by the end of the summer we will be grandparents!
We’re owned by two beautiful Golden Retrievers and Glenn and Jamie have two beautiful Labradors Retrievers, so we call ourselves ‘Your Mortgage Retrievers’ for fun. I mean, who doesn’t like a lab or a golden?? We also have a very bossy Corgi who herds those retrievers around all day, and frankly, runs the show around here.
We are dedicated to making a positive impact on our industry and helping our Realtor partners be successful by closing their transactions with more efficiency and speed and a minimal amount of bumps in the road. I make it a priority to keep up with the constant underwriting guideline changes and we strive to maintain our sterling reputation as a mortgage loan source and trusted adviser to our clients and referral partners.
For fun, Drew and I love to buzz around the California wine country in our vintage 1965 VW convertible and take in the vast beauty of the area on the many back roads. I also am an avid gardener and entertain clients, friends and family frequently in the gardens at our home, Creekside Groves.
Life is good and getting better!
