     Prior to my 12 year mortgage career, I was a teacher and enjoyed helping others. I appreciate the opportunity to give back to these heroes in our community. This is what brought me to Homes for Heroes and I felt it was a natural fit for me. I also specialize in helping Veteran home buyers and can offer the Colorado home buyer tax credit, an added benefit that all Veteran heroes and first time home buyers can qualify for. Currently I live in Colorado with my wife and two children, and enjoy all that Colorado has to offer. Skiing, camping, mountain biking, and ultimate Frisbee are my favorite activities.     Click here to learn more about growing your business while giving back to your community

For over 12 years, we have been specializing in Lakewood CO VA Loans!  Learn how to qualify for your VA home loan benefits in this article.
