Her expertise in all things mortgage has garnered her 100+ five-star reviews from clients and JVM Agent Partners. Heidi is the first person to reach out to new clients to answer and address all of their questions and concerns, and she remains available throughout every transaction to ensure clients are never in the dark or confused about any of the steps along the way. Heidi has walked thousands of clients through the mortgage process and has become a true expert in her field, having encountered almost every possible type of homebuying scenario. She takes special pride in her ability to educate all buyers and turn a notoriously complex process into an easily achievable reality.
