Any home I have ever lived in past or present represented a place of peace for myself and my family. Home has always been the place where we can raise our children, be ourselves, enjoy being together as a family and celebrate life’s special moments. When I help families or individuals purchase a new home where I know they will spend many happy years celebrating, perhaps raising children, or just living in comfort in a place they can call their own it touches my heart deep down. Serving as many families as I can at the highest level possible affords me the absolute privilege of making that dream of home ownership come true for so many. That inspiration is what enables me to work the long hours required to originate loans and serve as a McLean Mortgage Corporation leader each day.

I have been helping clients in the mortgage industry since 2001. I grew up in Maryland but now reside in Virginia. One of the things I most respect about McLean Mortgage Corporation is that the company completely understands that a loan originator only possesses 50% of what it takes to be successful. The team behind them contributes the other 50%. McLean Mortgage Corporation has always provided me an excellent level of service which enables me to deliver the same to all my clients.

McLean Mortgage Corporation operates in an ever-changing industry and we work hard to stay in the forefront offering flexible programs supported by the latest technology tailored to meet the needs of all clients. I personally have always been particularly passionate about VA loans. Assisting veterans or active duty service members maximize this benefit that they have earned because I believe they deserve the best our industry can provide is something I take very seriously. It’s near and dear to my heart. Thanking active duty service members or veterans separated from service for the sacrifices they have made by serving them at the highest level by providing an in-depth understanding of the VA loan process maximizes their VA loan benefits and can save them thousands of dollars.

Home buyers are best served when they are backed by a team of experts who will go the extra mile to help them achieve their dream of home ownership. I believe that McLean Mortgage Corporation was built from the ground up to do exactly that each day.

In my time with McLean Mortgage Corporation the accomplishment that means the most to me is receiving the Delmar J. Lewis award which was presented to me by our late CEO Pat Peavley. While he is no longer with us, I do keep the video a friend made of me receiving the award and occasionally watch it and listen to his kind words during the presentation. Being a Delmar J. Lewis award recipient is the highest honor presented to me by someone I admired very much who not only was a great leader and mentor, but who built his business on the same honesty and integrity required to serve others as I have done.

Here’s just a small sampling of the reviews our clients and partners have shared with us.

Paula is very knowledgeable, detailed and very quick response. I love it so far and I hope everything will be smooth until closing.
Alexandria, VA
Paula and Leslie were fantastic to work with!! It took us a few months to find the right home for us but Paula was right there ready to answer any questions we had throughout the process. They both answered their phones when we called and/or replied to our emails ASAP.. AND WE WERE CLEAR TO CLOSE 2 WEEKS EARLY!! We couldn’t be happier with what is usually such a stressful process!! Thank you!!

Big thanks to Paula and the Mclean Mortgage team for all their help purchasing my first home! The folks at McLean Mortgage made quick work of all the paperwork, phone calls and emails required. Everything was explained patiently and completely and they were always ready to answer any questions or assist me with next steps to complete the process. I might sell the place just so I can buy it with them again. Thanks team!

This is not my first mortgage, so of course I was dreading the process, but how refreshing to work with Paula and her team this time around! She and her team were very responsive, easy to work with and got me an amazing deal on a home that I was so much better than I could have expected. I will be recommending them to everyone in my area so they can finally have a good experience in the home buying process!!

My experience with Paula was as expected. There were no surprises. Nothing took place that was not already spoken of. I am sure that behind the scenes everything was already planned. I was guided the whole time. I was helped the whole time. If I had a question, it would be answered. The team that helped me out was, I'm not sure what else to call other than, ideal.

Paula tweaked our loan several times in order to fit our specific needs. She was very understanding, knowledgeable, and extremely down to earth. We felt like she was helping a member of her family. Highly recommended!

From house purchases, to refinancing, to car loans, to construction loans, I've experienced every type of lender from the small to the large. By far, Paula and McLean Mortgage was the most communicative, flexible, and - most importantly - FAST lending process I've been through. I received numerous communications from Paula and her team throughout the process, helpful videos at key points, explaining the overall process, and rapid responses to any questions. I felt that I wasn't just a number, but treated as a unique individual with unique circumstances. I can be a difficult customer to work with, yet I was always treated professionally, even in cases when I got nervous and asked a lot of questions. I would definitely recommend Paula and McLean Mortgage for their outstanding service, but also by far this lender was able to approve me for much higher than I initially thought, and gave me excellent and timely advice on how to keep my credit rock solid during the process.

We have been in dire need to move out of the fast-paced life in Fairfax and have been working on this dream for the last 9 years. Paula worked with us from day 1 (March 2017) to prepare us for the big day (Feb 2018), starting with how much we were qualified at so we could start home shopping. She had worked with us through home refinance to get some equity to fix up our home and sold it for more than the market price, and then to purchase our current home…a quaint little abode on the side of the Blue Mountain with absolute peace and serenity. Overall, she stood by us for an entire year of planning (home reno, selling, and buying) to acquire this dream home! She was the most astute, efficient and effective professional at her work I have ever observed. Our experience has been text-book perfect. There is no area in the course of this process that we could really fault. What is more than noteworthy is the frequent occasion that our beloved loan officer and with support of her team and staff obviously have operated way outside the norm. It is overwhelmingly encouraging to see that such level of service exists in a world that has lost its desire to excel. Needless to say, when opportunity comes, we’d definitely refer our friends and clients to Paula. Thank you Paula and Team.

Paula and her team are the best in the business. My wife and I have used her for several purchases. This last one was done in record time (9 business days) at the end of one of the busiest months (May) of the year. And, yes, the Memorial Day holiday was right there in the middle of it. Phenomenal job, Paula and Team!!!!
