Serving Maine and New Hampshire since 1993
I am grateful and honored for the thousands of clients over these past 25 years who have chosen to place their confidence in me with some of life’s biggest decisions and to achieve their financial goals. Whether buying a first home, refinancing to save money and lower payments, consolidate debt, funds for children’s college tuition, home renovations or purchasing investment property, it has been very rewarding to be such a trusted partner, earning repeat and referral business.
The industry has come a long way since 1993. Most people did not have home computers, internet or email, credit reports came in the mail, and mortgage loans were gotten from ‘the bank’, sometimes with a handshake if the bank president knew you or your parents. The secondary mortgage market was a novel concept, and mortgage brokers unheard of. At the age of 22, I became one of the first mortgage brokers in the State of New Hampshire, and to this day, I hold one of the oldest state licenses. I became an independent mortgage broker, after working for “the bank”, because I knew there was a better way. I wanted to offer a variety of real estate financing products from hundreds of different lenders across the country, instead of only what the local bank could do (or could not do). I could serve people better, with lower rates, more flexible approval guidelines, and meet the needs of a wider variety of unique financial situations. The rest, as they say, is history! Thank you to all my clients (many who have become friends!). Thanks to rapidly advancing technology making getting a mortgage faster and easier, (how about closing your loan on your couch at home, e-signing on your smartphone in your PJs? Yes, we can!), I look forward to moving ahead with an exciting future in the mortgage industry.
Now is the time to take advantage of low rates! Whether you are refinancing to lower your monthly payments, taking cash out for home improvements, debt consolidation, or maybe you are interested in purchasing your first home, second home, commercial, or investment property, Maritime Mortgage Company is your experienced, local source for the most competitive rates and terms.
I have a strong track record of APPROVED applications with successful closings! As an independent mortgage broker, I offer nearly every mortgage loan program available through my extensive network of lenders and investors, including Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, USDA, VA, FHA and HUD programs, JUMBO loans, as well as Reverse mortgages, very competitive commercial rates, and hard-money financing. My creativity and experience with financial and real estate transactions has made me the 'go-to' lender for Realtors, business owners, and many repeat customers.
I personally handle your transaction from application to closing. Using an independent mortgage broker has great advantages, more options, more flexibility, and you will be happy to find the rates and closing costs to be generally lower than comparable loans with other lenders.
