Client Solutions Advisor
The daughter of two real estate professionals, Katie spent her childhood playing house in many an open house. Destined to follow in her parents’ footsteps Katie’s first step into residential lending came while assisting her father, a long-time Mortgage Broker. Shortly after Katie was recruited for an operations role with a local lender where she learned all aspects of Wholesale Lending. By 28 she was Sun Trust Bank’s youngest Sales Manager, overseeing the bank’s Northern California region. Katie has gained extensive experience on both the Retail and Wholesale Lending side of the business, holding Account Executive roles with multiple top-ten US lenders. As an Account Executive, she was the liaison between Mortgage Brokers and operations staff at the banks/lenders that processed and approved the loans. She eventually opened her own successful broker shop, but bogged down by the business of running a business, she returned to her passion – working directly with clients to make their dreams of homeownership a reality.
With comprehensive experience on all sides of a residential mortgage transaction, Katie’s expertise spans an array of lending guidelines and loan products. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, Katie is resourceful and relentless in addressing any challenges that arise during the loan process, earning her a reputation among her peers as the “Dragon Slayer” of residential loans. As our Client Solutions Advisor, Katie will help guide the growth of ARRIVE Home Mortgage’s product offering and lender partnerships to meet the growing needs of our clients.
