Meet Nancy

Every client I meet has a story to tell, and it's my job to understand and honor the unique details of your story. I enjoy working with and learning from a diverse clientele in terms of language, culture and socioeconomic situation.

I've been a mortgage loan officer since 2001 and joined the family at Bell Bank Mortgage in 2010, coming from the Uptown mortgage office I'd opened, Puertas Abiertas/Open Door.

You'll find I am detailed and professional in my work, with a values-driven and service-oriented approach. I'll take the time to listen to you and explain the process and programs. We'll find the loan best tailored to you, whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned homeowner.

How I Work

Whether buying your first home or your fifth, you need an experienced loan officer to help navigate the complexities of mortgage financing. I'm committed to excellence throughout the process – from providing a thorough pre-approval with competitive rates and programs, to answering your questions, and, most important, to closing your loan on time.

Knowledgeable and caring, I've built a reputation as someone who works hard and gets the job done. Contact me and let my experience work for you!

We are the happiest homeowners right now! Everything went very smoothly with the closing. We are so grateful to you and Laura and your team for your support, guidance, and patience throughout the entire process. We remember speaking with you on the phone well over a year ago when we were first looking into the home buying and mortgage process and you were so helpful in educating us about what we could expect. From that point to meeting with Laura to look over our documents and every step of the way, you have all been wonderful to work with! We can't believe that today we get to start living in our dream house!
