A little About Me
Welcome to my corner of the mortgage industry! Born in Atlanta, Georgia, and now proudly calling Colorado home since 1995, I'm a seasoned Mortgage Loan Originator and co-owner of Uptown Mortgage alongside my mother, Lana Jern.
Education and Experience:
A proud graduate of Colorado State University with a degree in Computer Science, I have dedicated over two decades to the mortgage industry. I've had the privilege of assisting countless clients in achieving their homeownership dreams.
Passion for Clients and Advocacy:
My commitment to clients extends beyond day-to-day operations. As a professional deeply invested in the trajectory of mortgage industry regulation, I have actively participated in advocacy initiatives at both local and national levels. Serving as the President of the Colorado Association of Mortgage Professionals (CoAMP) in 2015 and 2016, and spending five years on the Board of Directors, has allowed me to contribute to shaping industry standards.
Balancing Professionalism with Personal Life:
Outside of the mortgage realm, I find joy in spending quality time with my wife, Amber, and our children. When not at home, you can usually find me fishing on one of Colorado’s many great trout streams while tossing around one of my homemade flies.
Expertise in Mortgage Solutions:
Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned homeowner, I bring the skills and dedication needed to guide you through your mortgage journey. I take pride in my in-depth understanding of Conventional, Jumbo, FHA, and VA financing options. My experience allows me to create unique solutions for the spectrum of unique situations I encounter with my borrowers. In addition to the more common loan options, we have access to non-QM programs and reverse mortgage products that fill a niche for less common situations.
Commitment to Seamless Transactions:
My ultimate goal is to craft transactions that are not only successful but also smooth and stress-free. I want my clients to remember the experience positively and consider Uptown Mortgage for their future mortgage needs. The trust my clients place in me is something I value deeply, and I am dedicated to exceeding expectations in every transaction.
Thank you for considering Uptown Mortgage for your home financing needs. I look forward to the privilege of guiding you through a seamless mortgage journey.
