About Debbie

Assisting mortgage borrowers in evaluating and selecting mortgage financing options to meet their short and long term financial goals for home purchases and refinances.

Debbie’s success in the industry is based on listening to her clients and meeting their needs. For the borrower that starts with an in-depth financial evaluation, matching their financial needs with loan options, and educating them on the mortgage process. For both borrowers and referral partners it also means being responsive, accessible, and reliable. This combination of services has allowed her to earn the trust and repeat business of thousands of clients over the past 30 years.

Debbie doesn’t sell mortgages she educates consumers on mortgage financing. This commitment to providing mortgage financing education extends to Realtors as well as consumers. She has been a presenter to Realtor organizations on mortgage industry topics including TRID (Loan Estimates and Closing Disclosures), HVCC (Appraisal Compliance), and currently teaches several Greater Capital Area Association of REALTORS® (GCAAR) financing classes on FHA, VA, and Conventional loan programs as well as Financing Issue Updates.

An active member of the GCAAR Public Policy Committee since 2007, Debbie was Vice Chair of the Committee in 2010, and was honored to be awarded the GCAAR Affiliate of the Year in 2011.
