Kathie grew up in New Jersey but has enjoyed living in Central Texas since 1972. She is a graduate of Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. In 1978, she left the retail world behind in favor of exploring real estate in Austin, first in the title business, then residential/commercial lending and then finally finding her home at Mission Mortgage in 1987. After a few years of working as the receptionist, processor and closer, she decided that originating loans was and is her niche.
Today, Kathie is a Senior Loan Officer at Mission Mortgage and one of the few people with such a long tenure. She considers herself to be a “hands-on” loan officer who approaches her work with honesty and integrity. Kathie loves working at Mission Mortgage because of the “can-do” attitude of every single co-worker, starting with the receptionist. Having a solid team of processors, underwriters, closers and more allows for a very positive environment, both for the staff and the clients.
Kathie specializes in residential financing with an emphasis on condominiums. She is proud and honored that her clients are mainly all from referrals, which include builders, realtors, family and friends. She and Jay have been married since 1978 and, together, they raised two sons who are now grown, also living in Texas, with successful careers of their own.
