Providing Smart Lending and Savvy Solutions

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

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 to 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.

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. I am also fluent in Spanish and have worked in the Latino community for over 22 years.

Contact me and let my experience work for you!
