Stephanie Wade

My 23+ years of mortgage lending experience has put me in touch with the first time homebuyer to the most complicated self employed entrepreneur with multiple properties and complex tax returns. I have an extensive background in management and underwriting. I am well versed in all types of mortgages; from Conventional, Jumbo, FHA/VA to Construction/203k Rehab loans. As a former FHA/VA Underwriter, I know lending guidelines inside and out!

My goal is always the same – provide useful and reliable information so the Customer can make an informed decision before entering into a real estate transaction. This includes providing estimates of what the monthly mortgage payment would be on a wide range of pre-approved prices, as well as estimating the closing costs and down payment needs so there are no surprises at closing.

I am married to my wonderful husband of 8 years (William), we have many nieces and nephews that we are very fond of.
