About Betsy

Betsy has been working in the mortgage loan business since 1989. She graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in finance and marketing and came to Ann Arbor to work with her father who owned a mortgage company. Betsy started as a loan officer and realized right away that this was going to be her career for life. Betsy is a third-generation mortgage lender. From helping those first-time buyers finance their first home to helping a couple build the $1 million home of their dreams, Betsy embraces the fact that she gets to be a part of the homeowner’s life. Her first job is to listen, and then educate, and then advise the borrower on the best financing program to fit their long and short-term financing goals. Betsy believes that communication is a key in every type of relationship, and she does her best to keep clients advised of the loan progress every step of the way. She realizes that this is the largest single investment most clients will make in their life and therefore will make sure that she does everything she can to make this a smooth transaction for them. No matter if this is a purchase, new home construction or a home refinance, Betsy recognizes the trust the client is placing in her to help them with their financing. She doesn't just originate loans, she invests in relationships.

Additional example of how an ARM is calculated: On a $230,000, 5/6mo SOFR ARM amortized over 30 years with an initial interest rate of 2.250% with an annual percentage rate of 2.783%, after fixed-period of 5 years the rate may increase every six months; individual adjustments are capped at 2% first, 1% subsequent and rate can never increase by more than the lifetime cap of 5%. Finance charges include $850 origination fee, $6.70 flood certification fee and $72 tax service fee. Additional closing costs apply. A payment example would be as follows based on a fully-capped interest rate of the loan: Months 1-60 at 2.250% rate with a payment of $879.17, Months 61-66 at 4.250% rate with a payment of $1,092.05 Months 67-72 at 5.250% rate with a payment of $1,206.10 Months 73-78 at 6.250% rate with a payment of $1,324.01 Months 79-359 at 7.250% rate with a payment of $1,445.33 and Month 360 at 7.250% rate with a payment of $1,445.79. The monthly payment may change when the interest rate on an adjustable rate mortgage is reset. After the initial fixed-rate period, your interest rate can increase every six months according to the market index. Current index (30 day avg SOFR) as of September, 2020 is 0.08467%. The current index plus Margin rounded to the nearest 0.125 is 3.000%. Any change may significantly impact your monthly payment. Rate payment example does not include costs of insurance and taxes; therefore, the actual payment obligation may be higher.
