I moved here from Michigan right after school in 1985 and have lived and worked here ever since. I started my career in the title insurance industry and worked for the nation's largest title insurer as a Closing officer. I always wanted to be my own boss and set my own schedule which led me to Mortgage Lending. I worked very successfully in that industry for several years focusing mostly on new purchases and refinancing for past clients. I quickly obtained my real estate license and then my Real Estate Broker's license (necessary to own or run a real estate company).
