Ask A Mortgage Question


Melanie started the adventure of her mortgage career in 2002 and has never looked back.

She enjoys the creativity involved in "putting the puzzle pieces together" on every loan and loves getting to know people in the process. Her creativity combined with many years of experience and extensive industry knowledge make her an excellent problem solver. She also seeks to infuse fun, humor, and light-heartedness into what can be a stressful and tedious process.

Melanie is the resident scenario guru. She is an expert in finding solutions for even the most challenging and complex situations. She has significant experience with portfolio products that can offer alternative loan options for scenarios that fall outside of traditional mortgage guidelines. She has a great deal of experience with condominium financing including non-warrantable condos. In addition, Melanie is very well-versed in helping clients with both building and repairing credit. She has been able to turn many credit-challenged customers into homeowners.
