When someone talks to me about mortgage loans their first reaction is that I give more information than they've experienced. I want to discuss the motivations of the client, how can I help them get where they are going. I like to present the options and let the client choose what works best for them.
When it comes to shopping for mortgage loans in Northern Kentucky or Ohio you'll find me open, friendly, honest, experienced, and extremely customer service oriented. Currently I hold licenses for Kentucky and Ohio which allows me to do loans anywhere in these states.
I received my training in the mortgage loan field in retail settings. I opened my mortgage brokerage 16 years ago primarily because most of my business is referral based. I've been originating loans for 25 years and now work with the children of many of those earlier clients. Fun!
Prior to originating mortgage loans in Northern Kentucky, I worked for five years as a real estate agent in Kentucky and Ohio. This training gave me very good grounding for the mortgage loan field, not to mention my experience as Operations Manager prior to that.
I know what great service is. It is often seriously lacking. I pride myself in going above and beyond to have and keep satisifed clients!
As a Mortgage Broker I am licensed by the states of Kentucky and Ohio. I have a NMLS identifier for my business (#1264) and individually (#6380) through the NMLS (national mortgage licensing system). To attain the licensing required many hours of training and to retain the license I am required to complete annual continuing education.
(Not all loan originators are required to be licensed, many are simply registered.)
My goal as a Kentucky and Ohio mortgage broker is to help a borrower determine the best possible loan for his/her particular needs. If I excel at anything in my career it is giving personal attention to every transaction.
I like to talk with a home buyer before he/she goes out into the market. If you are looking to purchase a home in Kentucky or Ohio not only can I give you information regarding financing that home, but give you some insight into the entire process from start to finish. When you know what to expect you will find the process more enjoyable and be less likely to make some common mistakes.
I am located in Fort Thomas, Kentucky; I have resided in Northern Kentucky most of my life. If you want to discuss options with a Kentucky or Ohio mortgage broker, you'll find me easy to speak with. I invite you to call me to get acquainted and ask questions about home financing.

|Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Dora has been absolutely wonderful. She knew everything the underwriter would need to make the process go off without a hitch. I highly recommend her. She's been kind, helpful, and easy to work with.
|Dora is outstanding. She patiently answers questions and is extremely thorough with her explanations. She provides options and helped us understand the nuances and differences between each one. Highly recommended!
|10 months ago Dora was absolutely wonderful through the whole refinance process. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us along the way and made the whole process easy.
|Based on the experience my sister and her husband had working with Dora on both their first and second homes, we confidently knew she was exactly who we needed in our corner when purchasing our own home. Not only did Dora provide the financial guidance we needed in understanding our mortgage, but she also gave us an invaluable financial education that we have been able to apply to other areas of our life. In fact, Dora worked with us for a few years simply helping us to get ourselves into a financial place where buying a home was realistic. Our home buying process was made difficult due to circumstances beyond our control, but at every turn and mishap, Dora was right there fighting with us and for us. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were getting the service we deserved and that we were being taken care of in the process. We knew that we could always reach out to Dora, and that she would respond very quickly with the guidance, answers, and support we needed. Because of Dora's financial understanding and knowhow, we were able to lock in an interest rate at a reasonable percentage given the difficult climate of interest rates. She saved us quite a bit of money by simply educating us. I was so impressed when Dora was able to refer to the recent things she had read, researched and listened to in order to educate herself with the most up-to-date information about mortgages. Dora takes one of the most stressful experiences in your life, and turns it into something positive. She was a lighthouse for us during a process that often felt overwhelming. It is evident from the very first point of contact with Dora that she genuinely cares about the people she serves, and this level of care continues even after the home is purchased. We tell everyone we know about Dora because she really is that amazing. We have zero doubt that any and all future home purchases in our family will be done through Dora and D.A. Griffin Financial.
|Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Working with Dora has been fantastic! She was quick to respond to any question I had and was very patient. She’s professional and very understanding. I highly recommend anyone to work with her if you want to buy a house or refinance. From the first time we spoke on the phone to closing, she was phenomenal. If it wasn’t for all of her help I would not have been able to buy my house.
|“ Excellent Experience! We recently worked with Dora Ann on the purchase of our first home. As first-time buyers, we were worried the process was going to be intimidating, but Dora Ann was amazing! She was so responsive and walked us through every step of the process. As we got closer to our closing date, she gave us frequent updates about rates and market trends and we were able to lock in a great rate! She kept on top of all paperwork and we never had to be concerned about anything falling through the cracks. Would HIGHLY recommend working with her!
|Amazing! I used Dora when I purchased my first home 14 years ago. She always stayed in touch by sending magnets with the season schedules for the Reds and Bengal games every year. We just recently bought a new home and I called up Dora. She was so helpful and explains things in great detail. Selling a house and buying one all at the same time can be overwhelming at times. She was always there to guide us and to keep us motivated. She definitely made our journey more pleasant and less stressful. Dora is such a kind person and so compassionate! We truly appreciate everything she did for us during the process of selling and buying!
|Dora seriously helped us through every step and got everything together for us and explained it all in our language! She took the time to double and triple check. She would ask us questions before documentation was sent in so that way we could expedite the process as quickly as possible without any bumps in the road. Would recommend to anyone!
|Dora was very knowledgeable and professional during the entire process. Anytime that I had any questions she was right there to help. She made things very easy. I will definitely use her services again.
|Julie and Dustin
|Dora recently helped us in the purchase of our first home and we couldn't be more happy with her services. She was extremely knowledgeable about the entire process and was always available to help us with any of our thousands of questions. She took the time to thoroughly explain every process so that we would know exactly what was happening. Not only was Dora unbelievably professional and experienced, she was also personally fantastic. We really felt that she went above and beyond for us and we could not have been in better hands. We will continue to use Dora for all of our mortgage needs. July 2017, I just helped Julie and Dustin with a move up home. Many of my clients are repeat customers. I love seeing their family grow.
|Jason and Shauntel
|We just wanted to tell you THANK YOU for all your hard work and hanging in there. We look forward to working with you again sometime.

|Did anyone ever tell you you're special! Thank you for working so hard on lowering our house payment. We appreciate everything you did to help us.
|Dirk and AJ
|Dora, Thank you for keeping our best interests in mind throughout the refinance maze! You are the best!

|"Dora has helped my wife and I through 1 home purchase and 2 refinances. She is extremely knowledgeable on everything regarding the financial side of home buying/refinancing. Her customer service is outstanding. We’ve been very pleased to have her on our side in all our lending needs and have recommended her to others and will continue to do so.
