Meet The Rockas Painter Team

Meet Margo

I am a native Arizonan and grew up in a large family in Tempe. I played every sport in high school and am a bit of a tom boy. Although my younger years were spent traveling, I feel lucky to call “The Valley of the Sun” my home. My family has deep roots in Northern Arizona and the Grand Canyon, which is why Flagstaff is my home away from home. I am blessed with two amazing, athletic kids, which has given way to many days spent on a soccer field or volleyball court.

In over 34 years in the mortgage industry, my unique background has included roles as a loan officer, loan processor, closer, funder and underwriter and wholesale sales. Over 20 of these years were spent at Chase as a producing branch manager, covering over 40+ bank branches. I left the corporate bank world behind to find my forever home at Bell Bank, a national private bank, consistently ranked as a top place to work. These roles give me an extra edge as a loan officer in resolving issues when others cannot. Having experienced so much of this industry over time, I am able to be a reliable financial guide for our clients, helping them to build wealth through homeownership.

Our team specializes in helping relocating employees and their families, new construction loans (tract builder or custom), medical professional loans, luxury home financing and more. We are experts at complex income analysis and coming up with creative solutions. We love working with our veterans and first time home buyers and Bell has many down payment assistance programs to serve our communities in need.

As your mortgage consultant, I’ll use my long-term experience to provide you with sound advice and a smooth loan process. Our team takes the stress out of the loan process through education, understanding clients’ needs, and providing exemplary communication. When you work with me and my partner, Laura Painter, you are drawing on the experience of 2 of Arizona's best.

Added to this extensive knowledge base, our client-first attitude means you’ll receive a level of customer service that is unique and refreshing. Our clients tell us often they have never felt so respected and valued during a mortgage process.

Our team combines old-school common sense with current technology for an unbeatable mortgage experience. When you work with us, you’ll also benefit from the tremendous experience of my partner, Margo Rockas, and our full support team. Together we will educate you and offer the mortgage options which best fit your situation and financial goals.
