With just one loan application you have access to competitive rates and every single conventional and government mortgage loan in today’s market. Lending Path can help you refinance or buy a mortgage loan. We know the loan programs inside and out. We will not pigeon-hole you into a specific loan.

Lending Path is one of the few mortgage brokers that offers all three major government programs – FHA, VA, USDA. We’ve got them and we know them.

Conventional loans underwritten to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines dominate the mortgage industry today. We can help you secure both conforming and jumbo loan amounts. We can also help you secure loans that meet both your monthly payment requirements and your long-term interest goals with products such as a 20 and 25 year loan.

Our loan products are designed around you. We can create a custom mortgage program that meets your requirements and make sure you understand your new loan completely. From first time homebuyers to financing million dollar mansions, Lending Path is your solution. Give us a try.

Our Process


We are committed to guiding to you through your home-buying process with ease. From the first phone call, our focus is on you. Here is how it works:

1. Your Lending Path loan officer is your first point of contact when you call, not a customer service department. Your loan officer can answer any question you may have about mortgages and can provide you with current interest rates, closing cost estimates and the impact of choosing one mortgage over another.

2. Our focus is on you and your needs. What are your goals? What do you require from a mortgage company? Is this your first home? How much do you want to put down? What monthly payment are you most comfortable with? What is most important to you right now, lower payments or long term interest savings? You can expect these questions and many more from Lending Path.

3. With just one loan application you have access to competitive rates and every single conventional and government mortgage loan in today’s market. Lending Path is a mortgage broker. We represent some of the most recognized names in the mortgage lending industry as well as some of the best mortgage bankers you’ve never heard of.

4. Your loan officer will provide you with a variety of mortgage loan options that meet your specific requirements. If you are not sure what type of loan is best for you, let us help you down the home loan path as we arrive at the perfect home loan together. We know mortgage loans inside and out, and we also navigate through the constantly changing set of overlays (internal underwriting requirements for mortgage lenders) ensuring your best outcome.

5. Our staff will help you prepare your loan package for approval and work with the lender to get your loan papers to closing. The key to our process is communication. We are always available. We are experienced. Our method is proven. Let us show you. Call us today at 803-765-9399 or fill out our online application.

I was born in Seneca, SC and have family all over the state. Most of my formative years were in Lynchburg, Va and Remagen, Germany. In 1993, I graduated from James Madison University with a BBA in finance.

I began my career in mortgage lending in 2005. Mortgage Lending offered me the opportunity to utilize my interest in personal finance and helping people - what a great way to help someone by enabling them to achieve the dream of home ownership!

My goal is to make sure that you are comfortable with the loan process, fully understand the differences between loan products, and help you choose the right one based upon your unique requirements.

In my personal time, I enjoy traveling, playing golf, and spending time with my family.
