Alex Wharton-Parham
Operations Manager
With more than 30 years of lending experience to share with you, I enjoy working with a wide range of borrowers. One of the best parts of my job is assisting first time home-buyers and seeing their dreams of home ownership come true.
Since mortgages are our only business, this enables me to offer customized loan solutions with built-in affordability. In addition to financing for existing properties, I have ten years of experience working with local builders and can assist you with new construction financing.
It’s easy to describe my promise to my borrowers. As author Douglas Adams said: “To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” In addition, my team and I will work together diligently to make sure your loan closes on time.
