Q: How long have you been promoting AHFA’s programs?
A: Honestly, I can’t remember it’s been so long. Probably at least 15 years. I found out about the programs from a lender I worked with frequently.
Q: What do you think is the biggest benefit of Step Up?
A: The opportunity for borrowers to finance a home with virtually no money down is awesome. The qualifications are also not as strict as some other programs.
Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?
A: Assisting people in realizing their dream of homeownership, including many who did not think they could ever buy a home. I enjoy the looks on their faces when they are close to making their dream a reality! I also enjoy putting my experience to good use in providing valuable real estate information to buyers, sellers, and fellow Realtors.
