I help people with their mortgage needs for homes located in Washington state... when I'm not working or cooking, I'm probably painting on black velvet.
Introduction

I've lived in Washington State for most of my life and have been a mortgage originator at Mortgage Master Service Corporation since April 2000.  Mortgage Master Service Corporation is a family owned correspondent lender serving the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years.
