“My team and I provide a specialized service to Veterans that desire to buy a home for themselves and their families. The act of helping Veterans in this capacity is beyond rewarding. To have gotten to know so many amazing Veterans that each have a story to tell brings my team and I more of a purpose than just originating loans. We are helping real people that have been through and seen more than you could imagine.”

More About Shirley
Originally from Dallas, Texas, she has been working as a mortgage loan professional for the past 14 years. She has helped hundreds of people purchase or refinance a home and takes pride in the fact that a good portion of her business comes from referrals.
She has helped clients buy or refinance a home with just about every loan program available; however, she is proud to say her specialty is Texas Veteran and VA Home Loans as she particularly enjoys helping Veterans utilize the benefits they have earned under the Texas Vet and VA Mortgage programs. She has helped hundreds of Veterans buy a home using their VA Loan eligibility and finds it truly gratifying helping those who have served our country purchase a home of their own.
Shirley frequently helps Veterans who live in Texas and are getting PCS orders to other states, or are deployed overseas returning home, or need to buy a home for their family while deployed. She also helps Veterans with VA Loans in Florida where she is licensed to originate loans throughout the state.
