Having worked in the mortgage industry for nearly a decade, there are still many things that continue to surprise me about the challenges we face in originating mortgage loans. Unfortunately, one of those challenges is the lack of resources to educate consumers on the loan process, what it entails, what they can do to make the process easier on them, and assistance on finding the best loan that meets their specific needs.
The Miksta Team has partnered with V.I.P to ensure these resources are made available to our clients and that someone is always available to answer the phone and provide the necessary education to our clients. Both V.I.P. and my team believe that the customer always comes first and we are here to ensure that the loan program they select and the loan process they experience is second to none.
Growing up in northern Illinois, I moved to Arizona after graduating from the University of Illinois in Champaign with a degree in Management Information Systems and Finance. My background in both numbers and technology has allowed me to develop a system to streamline the mortgage process and provide enhanced communication throughout the transaction, for both clients and partners alike.
I have developed a unique tracking system, which has elevated the production of The Miksta Team from $12 million in 2008 to $52 million in 2012. My team also ranked nationally in the top one percent for all loan originators in the country in 2012, according to the reputable Scotsman Guide.
Our team’s primary focus is the customer and we do everything we can to streamline the loan process, always looking for the next task we can improve. Our relationship does not end with the close of the transaction either. We are committed to having clients for life and at a minimum we will conduct an annual review each year after their loan has closed, always looking for an opportunity to save more money for our clients.
Pursuing our passion for education, we have supported The Khan Academy on an annual basis and look to continue to raise awareness to its cause and how it will impact the future of education. Starting in 2014, The Miksta Team is also starting an annual scholarship fund that will support a child who has shown a strong passion for learning. You can learn more about his here.
I am very competitive by nature, so outside of work, I thoroughly enjoy sports, both playing and watching them. I play basketball regularly and am a Crossfit fanatic. I love traveling as well, and have purposely become licensed in California, Illinois, Colorado and Arizona so I can work and play simultaneously. I am also a part of the Phoenix 20/30 Club, a philanthropic group that focuses on raising money for underprivileged children in the Phoenix area.
I look forward to working with my clients in the years ahead to ensure that their mortgage is in good hands and to continue to support more organizations geared towards improving education around the world.
