Meet Margo

I am a native Arizonan and grew up in a large family in Tempe. In over 30 years in the mortgage industry, my unique background has included roles as not only a loan officer, but also a loan processor, closer, funder and underwriter. I specialize in building and new construction loans, and I work with several large Arizona companies whose employees are relocating here.

As your mortgage consultant, I’ll use my long-term experience to provide you with sound advice and a smooth loan process. I take the stress out of the loan process by educating my clients, understanding what you need, and providing exemplary communication. When you work with me and my partner, Laura Painter, you are drawing on the experience of 2 of Arizona's best.

Meet Laura

I’m a “career professional” who has been in the real estate and mortgage field since 1978. When it comes to getting the mortgage you need, there is simply no substitute for that level of experience. My client-first attitude means you’ll receive a level of customer service that is unique and refreshing.


I like to say that I combine old-school common sense with current technology for an unbeatable mortgage experience. When you work with me, you’ll also benefit from the tremendous experience of my partner, Margo Rockas. Margo specializes in evaluating what our clients need and finding the options that fit you and your financial goals.

Laura made the entire process smooth and was always available and helpful. This was our first house purchase, and Laura guided us through all the difficult steps and was always spot on with her advice and assistance. Thank you, Laura, for making owning our home possible.
