Dustin Moffat - Senior Loan Processor
Born in Utah, I have been a Coloradan since 1990. I have been a part of the Mortgage industry for 16 years and take pride in the profession I have chosen. It’s a unique experience being able to help a borrower purchase their first home or refinance their home they’ve owned for years, one that I’m happy to help with and enjoy doing. I pride myself in trying to help make the home loan process as easy as possible for our clients.
When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending most of my time with my wife Panther and our wonderful two kids. If there’s a good movie out there to see, you’ll find me at the Cineplex with a bucket of popcorn. Sometimes it has to be a movie for the kids, but I enjoy those as well.
Vanessa Moreno Mares - Loan Setup Specialist
I was born in Arizona and moved to Aurora, Colorado in 1999. I have been in the mortgage industry since 2015, mastering the ins and outs of the loan process.
I serve as a setup coordinator, managing day-to-day operations with both purchases and refinances, and love being able to assist new and current home buyers in making their transactions as easy as possible.
On my time off, I love spending time with my husband Jesus and our two crazy dogs. You can often find us either out on a trail or having fun at a local night club.
Ashley Lukens - Administrative Assistant
I am enjoying coming back into the mortgage industry to assist and make Uptown Mortgages’ clients experience as flawless as possible. I have lived in Colorado all my life and when I’m not in the office I enjoy being outdoors, having adventures with family and friends in our beautiful state, and especially being with my two kids Lucy and Barrett.
Erika Harter - Senior Loan Processor
I started my path in the mortgage industry in 2006. Being a natural problem solver, processing mortgages became my calling and I love helping people with the American dream! Throughout the years my knowledge and experience grew in VA, FHA, USDA and Fannie/Freddie guidelines. My passion for guiding people seamlessly through the underwriting process to get your loan to the closing table is what sets me apart from the rest!
I am an avid animal lover and have 3 dogs. I am also a huge football fan and love to watch college games as well as the NFL. When not watching football, you can find me in nature with a good craft beer. Cheers!
Lyndsie Jobson - Senior Loan Processor
I have worked in the mortgage industry since I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2001. I have worked in nearly every department for multiple lenders so I know the mortgage process from start to finish and have processed every loan type, including home equity loans. I love interior decorating, being outside, playing board games and watching my son play hockey.
