Welcome! Here you'll learn more about my background and talented team. Over the years, we've found that genuine dedication to our clients is the reason for our success and we've made some wonderful friendships along the way. We take pride in our amazing service, true integrity, and offer a full range of mortgage options. I'd welcome the opportunity to help you achieve your goals.
First and foremost, I love to help people. It’s just my very nature and I’ve known it all my life; I actually inherited it from my Mother. Growing up, people would always tell me that when they called her at the bank they could tell she was smiling by the tone in her voice; still today when you get her on the phone you can hear the smile through the phone.
After 15 years of working for Fortune 100/500 companies, I decided to return to my roots of helping people directly and entered into the mortgage origination industry. I just celebrated my 11th anniversary as a lender, and cannot imagine having a greater job; the job of helping to put smiles on homeowners’ faces. Although loans are a part of my daily life, I realize that, for most of my clients, it is the first time they have ever experienced the mortgage process. For a first-time homebuyer, mortgage jargon can seem like a foreign language. That's why I pride myself on educating each and every client so that they fully understand the process and lose the fears and worries that naturally go along with making the largest investment in their life. Here at Cobalt, you are not treated as a number. You walk in as a client and leave as a family member. Since the business of real estate rarely conforms to a 9-5 schedule, I make myself available to you and your agent outside of normal business hours.
What happens to our relationship after your loan closes? It stays exactly the same! I am always here to address any questions or concerns you may have. We all know that rates and programs change continuously and I will always be on the watch—evaluating your current mortgage program and rate often so I can let you know if a refinance might be something you should consider.
Remember, it is my goal to become your “Personal Lender for Life”. Thank you for taking the time to learn about me and I look forward to assisting you, your family and friends.
We're part of the community.
Cobalt Mortgage is the largest privately-owned mortgage banking firm in the state of Washington, and we are also active in our community. We hire locally, live locally, and are in it for the long run. Lasting relationships and genuine service are at the heart of what we do. In 2012 alone, we originated 12,392 new mortgages, totaling nearly $3.4B. For a company of just over 900 employees, that was no small task. It all comes down to teamwork and commitment from all.
For the past nine years, we have been the key sponsor of the Don James Golf Classic, benefiting the Kirkland Boys & Girls Club. During this time, we have raised over $775,000, allowing the organization to continue several important after-school programs that serve the children in the community.

I'm thrilled to join the Cobalt Mortgage team, and am here to assist Rick and his clients through every step of the loan process. Rick and I both realize how intimidating the loan process can be. We are committed to guiding you not just from the beginning to the end, but even after the completion of your loan. Our number one goal is to provide superior customer service for both our clients and our community.
