Honesty, Integrity and Experience. That is the First Mortgage Solutions slogan and that statement also fits me. I have been in the lending field for 30 years ever since my graduation from Cornell College in Iowa. I am an Iowa native but I have called Lees Summit home for 20+ years now.
Educating and communicating with all my clients is what I am passionate about. Financing options is what everyone wants and deserves and I am here to help you down the best financing path for you. Prompt communication and timely response time is my hallmark.
Balance is the key to a successful life which is why I enjoy spending quality time with my wife, Julie. We enjoy live music and State Fairs. Our only daughter is a happy homeowner and is also my favorite client. It is a blessing to have a role in helping your child finance a home for her, her husband and their precious boxer dog!
I look forward to assisting you in your quest for the American Dream!
Monthly Mortgage Payment Calculator
How much can you expect to pay in monthly mortgage payments, including PMI? Use this mortgage calculator to estimate monthly payments and closing costs at different interest rates, loan terms, and down payment amounts.
To obtain a deeper and more personal analysis of your mortgage options:
This is the full price of the home you would be buying.
This is the amount of money you would need to provide at the time of closing that would count towards ownership of your home. Keep in mind, you would also need to pay closing costs and other fees in addition to the down payment.
Mortgage Interest Rate
This is the percentage you would have to pay the lender for the money you've borrowed. Interest rates are based on your credit score and several other factors, as well as market fluctuations.
This is a tax levied by the government where the property is located based on the property's value.
Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)
This is an insurance policy lenders require of borrowers who put down less than 20% of the home price to protect the lender against borrower default.
Lenders require that borrowers purchase homeowners insurance, also known as hazard insurance, to protect your property and personal possessions from certain types of crime and weather-related damage.
Homeowners Association Dues
It is common for condominium and townhome owners to owe association dues to cover building amenities, maintenance, and improvements.
