I am proud and honored to have been in this industry for the past 12 years. As a loan officer with Summit Funding, Inc. my team thrives to exceed your expectations. We are dedicated to our clients, you and your real estate agent.

Summit is a banker and a broker. This means we know where your file is at all times and we speak to our operational staff of underwriters, document drawers and funders daily. As an operational team, we work together for one common goal; to close your loan smoothly and on-time, so you can concentrate on the home you are purchasing and not your loan. We give consistent updates to all parties involved so no one is wondering what is going on. At no time, do I not know where your file is and who has it in front of them.

It would be my pleasure to meet with you and have you meet my team. Whether you are eager to start looking for homes now or in the future, the best time to start planning is now. This way we can understand areas we may need to help you work on if needed.

In this busy world I understand that meeting face to face can be challenging so we can definitely speak over the phone to get started. Most people we find have some fear around purchasing property. I would like to understand those fears and work through them in order for you to feel comfortable moving forward towards your goal of homeownership.

Closed purchase loan. Livermore, CA

Karen and her team did an excellent job helping us get the loan we needed to buy a new house! Kayla was our usual contact person and she always went above and beyond for us. We are very happy with their services!
