CrossCountry Mortgage

Ask A Mortgage Question


From the swamps of Texas and Louisiana, the mountains of upstate New York, and the big city life in Chicago, I made it to the High Desert of Colorado, where I now call home. I've been married for 10 years, and after years of trying, and now a proud father to a 3 year old boy.

I started in sales in the trucking industry, in what seems like a lifetime ago. Was lucky enough to meet my first mentor in this mortgage sales role in 2003.

From 2014-2019, I owned my own mortgage company, growing it from a brokerage to a min-correspondent before moving that business to CrossCountry Mortgage.

Over the years, and through a couple more mentors, was able to build a team that consistently closes over $100m in volume annually. As I continue to grow, I now spend a good portion of my time mentoring the future of the industry, recruiting new sales people and helping them become excellent, efficient, growth minded loan officers.

At our branch, we have a clear framework of what our end result will look like in our LOs, teams, and how we will treat our clients. G + F2 = us: through growth, and a building of our work family, we will seek out and deliver financial freedom.

If this sounds like something you would love to be a part of, please connect with me. I'd love the opportunity to speak with you about joining our branch and team at CCM.
