During many years in the tourism industry, I spent my free time rehabbing homes. Improving neighborhoods around Anchorage, becoming debt-free, and saving for retirement makes all the hard work worth it.
Since 2008, financing fixer-upper houses has been challenging. With my husband, we’ve had to go through various banks and brokers to use creative tools such as renovation loans and portfolio loans to purchase properties and finance repairs. We’ve also worked with partners and formed LLCs to handle our investment properties, including single-family homes and an apartment complex.
Being outside the wheelhouse of traditional financing so many times is the main reason I became a mortgage loan originator. Let me make it easier for you than it was for me! Whether you’re buying a non-traditional property or earning a non-traditional income (i.e., self-employed, seasonal work, commissions), I will research and present you with the best options and advice possible, just as I do for my traditional mortgage clients.
Between remodeling houses, I find time to enjoy our great state by hiking, kayaking, rafting, and xc skiing, as well as snowmachining and ATVing to our cabin near Eureka. As a lifelong Alaskan from Fairbanks, Haines, Juneau, and Anchorage, I am passionate about helping my clients statewide reach their Alaska dreams of home ownership and financial freedom.
