WHAT SETS ME APART
Passionate about perfection
What a Mortgage Broker Does
When you partner with a mortgage broker, his or her job is to get you the best mortgage deal possible.
Mortgage brokers have an extensive network of lenders that they work with so they can shop each lender, looking for the perfect home loan for your needs.
He or she handles all communications with the lender and the mountains of paperwork that goes along with obtaining a home loan mortgage, including all compliance issues as well.
You work directly with the mortgage broker, so you develop a very personal relationship with the broker.
He or she collects all necessary information from you, including your employment history, bank statements, tax returns, and the like, and he or she has a deep understanding of what you are looking for and what you need.
A mortgage broker has your best interests at heart, and he or she works hard to ensure your every need is met.
I offer many first-time home buying programs, home refinances, and home equity loans, such as HELOC loans.
I am here to ensure that you know your options and I help you determine which is best for you.

What To Look for In a Mortgage Broker
While knowledge and experience are certainly important when considering a mortgage broker, it is key to look for someone who will work hard from the moment you partner with them until the moment your mortgage documents are signed.
You want someone who will fight for your mortgage, the rate, and your qualifications.
When you know that your mortgage broker is working hard so you can save percentage points on your mortgage rate, save on closing costs, and get the right mortgage for at least the next decade, all the hassles that come with moving will be an amazingly pleasant experience.
FIGHTS HARD FOR YOUR LOAN THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS
POSSESSES KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE
GREAT RATE AND LOW CLOSING COSTS
PROVIDES STRESS-FREE EXPERIENCE
HOW TO CHOOSE A MORTGAGE BROKER
Referrals and Online Reviews
REFERRALS FROM REALTORS
Your real estate agent might have a few mortgage brokers that they recommend. They have first-hand knowledge of how their customers were taken care of, so they are great sources of referrals.
REFERRALS FROM OTHERS
Referrals are always the best way to choose a mortgage broker. When a friend, family member, or work colleague has a great experience with someone, odds are, you will, too.
Online reviews are another source for brokers. If the vast majority of these are positive, you can bet these mortgage brokers are worth at least a phone call.
Because so many people use text and email, it can be hard to get a sense of who someone is. For that reason I recommend a phone call to take time to chat, ask questions and get to know the person. You also can sense over the phone if you will work well with that person.
People First Service
That Was Easy! - I am not exaggerating. I can't think of anyone else I've worked with personally or professionally who is as responsive, efficient, and effective as Lisa Marie. She's helped me more than once to make something I thought was going to be difficult and stressful very easy to deal with. I just couldn't ask for anything more from a mortgage broker.
Best Lender Out There - Great job. Thank you very much for all your hard work. Couldn't have done it with out you. You're the best!!!!! When I need any kind of lending I will always check with Lisa 1st. She made it all easy as pie! She is very friendly and knowledgeable. She has a great company!
Lisa gets the job done - Can't say enough about working with Lisa. This is my 3rd re-finance in 6 years and it just keeps getting better. She takes care of the little (and large) obstacles with style, keeps her word and the results speak for themselves.
