Business owners - if you are contemplating an SBA loan, please consider Wells Fargo for your financing. Wells Fargo is the leading SBA lender both in Texas (#1 ranked in closed loan volume for many consecutive years) as well as the #1 nationwide SBA lender. We specialize in owner-occupied real estate and business acquisition financing. You will benefit from a seasoned and consistent lender that is committed to SBA lending in all economic cycles.

My approach is to make the loan process more customer centric than the competition, providing fast answers and advice based on 18 years of dedicated lending experience. I focus on making a government loan program easier for our small business owner clients to navigate. Since most transactions are deadline specific (building and business purchases), I pay close attention to contract dates and the importance of meeting those deadlines. My goal is to be a key advisor and decision maker in these large and complex transactions.

My background is unique in that I have held executive level positions in companies with multiple mortgage industry disciplines. These include: mortgage servicing operations, mortgage insurance, mortgage operations, consultancy, GSE operations, and loan originations. This gives me a unique perspective of the mortgage loan anywhere in its lifecycle, and more importantly what needs to be done to achieve a desired outcome. Demonstrated ability to develop innovative strategies to manage risk and build sales and servicing platforms. Accomplished at building and effectively managing teams.
