Senior Mortgage Advisor
NMLS ID # 1477677

Through collaboration, a mortgage lender helps potential homeowners understand the transaction by breaking down the often complicated loan process into a something that is easy to grasp.

I specialize in helping first-time homebuyers navigate the mortgage process. Many of my clients are very curious about how all the pieces fit together, from approval to closing on their new home. Educating you about that process is what I do best.

I’ve been in the mortgage industry for 4 years. I worked over 29 years as an Investment Advisor, giving me a unique perspective into all the products, services, and financial challenges people face when they are looking for a home loan. I grew up in Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania, but I have lived in Great Falls, Virginia for 20 years. My community is active and outgoing. I understand how important the community is to a homeowner.

McLean Mortgage has many options for me to use to help clients win contracts in active markets and provide them with 10 to 14-day closes. With McLean Mortgage’s exclusive packages, I can help financially challenged families buy homes when other lenders have failed.

When I’m not helping clients, I support H.A.R.T. Animal Rescue. I love to play at our country’s finest golf clubs, although I must admit I’m not getting better as I get older. I am married to a wonderful woman, Patti, and once a quarter, we drive 146 miles to pick up superb shrimp salad sandwiches. Many folks are surprised to learn that thirty-six years later, I remain my high school’s all-time leading scorer in both basketball and track & field.

Let’s start exploring your mortgage options together.

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

Steve walked us through the entire process and was clear about every step we needed to take with securing our no credit-score mortgage. We were delighted to meet him when he attended our closing 90 miles from his office.

Anytime we needed to talk with Steve, he either answered the phone right away or called us back very quickly. This was our third home purchase, and Steve made it by far the best.
