I am proud to say I have been a loan officer for 20 years. And, that I am licensed to originate mortgages by the State of Arizona and the Federal government. I think of myself as more of a teacher than a sales person and really enjoy making sure all parties involved, (the buy, buyer’s agent, seller’s agent and the Title company) are all fully informed as we move thru the transaction. My goal is that all parties are so pleased and comfortable with the process that they will continue to refer me business long after the purchase, or refinance is complete.
Approximately 70 of us make up Sunstreet Mortgage. Founded in Tucson, by Tucsonans, the company was structured by loan officers for loan officers. Sunstreet makes it very easy for me to do a good job. Your loan file will never leave our office. We process, underwrite, close and fund your loan here, within this office. I have easy access to the resources we need to get answers and move thru the process quickly.
I’d love to speak with you! I can be reached 7 days a week at

Sunstreet Mortgage was professional and fast. We closed on our home in less than four weeks. We were very pleased with the service and particularly the thoroughness of the brokers involved in securing our mortgage.
The Mortgage News
Homeowners who refinanced through Freddie Mac in 2013 continued to display fiscal restraint, choosing fixed rate mortgages, keeping essentially the same mortgage balance, and in many cases opting for shorter-term loans to build equity more rapidly. In doing so homebuyers who refinanced during the year will save approximately $21 billion on net over the first 12 months of their new loans.
The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) called the fourth quarter of 2013 a particularly strong one for commercial and multifamily mortgage originations, with a total volume of around $280 billion in closed loans, the highest volume since 2007. Preliminary figures indicate that the volume for the entire year was up 15 percent from 2012 and increased 34 percent between the third and final quarter of 2013.
Now that prices have recovered to within striking distance of where many folks purchased their homes, potential sellers have found something new to worry about. Can their potential buyer get a mortgage?
