I have only recently transitioned into this wonderful, crazy side of selling real estate. For the prior 26 years I sat on the lenders side of the fence. I started out working in Loan servicing in 1980 when interest rates were 18%. Imagine what our market would be like if interest rates were even 8%, let alone 18%. Ok, so now I'm telling you how old I am. The point is, I've seen a lot of changes in the mortgage industry which is directly effected by the real estate market and vice/versa.
After being the 'victim' of takeovers, re-allocations, lay offs, whatever you want to call it, I finally decided to take my future into my own hands. It seemed like a reasonable tranisition to make since I already have a strong background in mortgage lending. What a ride!!! I'm having a total blast helping clients find the home of their dreams and helping sellers get the most for their home.
On a personal note, I'm married with a son and 4 step-children ages 25 (twins), 22, 17 & 13 (4 boys, 1 girl). My husband and I love to camp, ride dirt bikes and quads and love spending time with the kids. We live in beautiful Cave Creek and love it.
