Karen’s moto through her 30+ year career in mortgage banking has been “A borrower is not just a number or a piece of paper.  They are important individuals who should receive all the help and guidance they deserve on one of the most important decisions in their lives.”

Born in Washington, D.C., Karen grew up in Maryland and has lived in both Virginia and Maryland.   She began her career with Colonial Mortgage where she was involved in all facets of the mortgage process for 9 years.  Eventually she became a Sr. Loan Officer with Mason Dixon Funding for 13 years, EagleBank for 7 years, a few other small companies, and now with HomeFirst Mortgage.   From settlements, processing, office manager and underwriter to loan officer, Karen can patiently provide you with help and answers that you may have about the mortgage process.

Her personal promise to borrowers is that they have a very smooth, easy settlement and she guarantees no surprises.  The majority of Karen’s business is realtor-based and she currently deals with several top agents with major firms in the DC Metro area.

Karen has raised 2 children and devotes much of her personal time to her husband, children, grandchildren and dogs.   She also volunteers at the AASPCA.
