Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

I have been assisting home buyers and homeowners since 1993. I am a graduate of Walsh College, majoring in Finance. With 21 years originating loans, I am well equipped to walk my clients through the mortgage maze. And the current environment has turned into quite a maze.

As a mortgage planner, I operate a bit differently than my fellow mortgage originators. It is my goal that my clients understand all aspects of the mortgage process, are shown all possible options available, and feel completely comfortable by the time they get to the closing table. Using state of the art analysis software, I compare the available options, showing not only monthly payments, and closing costs, but the longer term costs of each program. By structuring the mortgage correctly, my clients are better able to reach their future financial goals.

I also am very aware that when I am referred a client by another professional or past client, how I treat the referred client is a direct reflection on the person who did the referring.

Closed refinance loan. Troy, MI

We wanted to get a 30 yr. fixed and went to our bank who has held a mortgage for over 30 yrs. on the property. We were told that they could not take their home equity and convert it to a 30 yr. our complete disbelief.. So, I told my husband that there was a guy I knew in the business who had done incredible mortgages for people who had also had trouble at other lenders and I called Mark. He was able to get us a 30 yr fixed quickly and we are very happy!! Mark has always done a great job with anyone I have referred to him. including myself... :-)  More Less

Closed purchase loan. Bloomfield Hills, MI

Mark made this process as painless as possible. He was extremely responsive and resourceful and got back to me even at odd hours. He was a recommendation from our financial advisor and I'm thrilled that I thought to ask for a recommendation at all. He even answered my extra 200 questions without complaint. Very happy with his service. Thank you!  More Less
