What led you to your career at Innovative Mortgage Solutions?
I was first introduced to the Innovative team back in 2012 when my wife and I purchased our first home. Last year we welcomed our second daughter and decided it was time to upgrade to a bigger home, which brought us back into Innovative. Coincidentally, at this time, I was transitioning out of my previous career of Personal Fitness Training and looking for a new path.
It was shortly after that Mike reached out to me, expressing I might be a good addition to the team. This was when I seriously started looking into the Mortgage Brokerage Industry. My previous experience in developing trustworthy, long-term relationships, my loyalty to my clients, and my dedication to organization, will continue to be my driving force within my new role as a Mortgage Associate here at Innovative. I completed my schooling in mid July 2020 and officially joined the crew a couple weeks later.
What part of your role speaks most to your personality?
I think my dedication to my clients and continuously seeking out what best suits their needs parallels my personality along the loyalty and detail oriented realms. I am personally invested in everything that I do, and value client relationships immensely.
