Meet Jenna DeBaere: Mortgage Lender and Home Loan Expert

Jenna DeBaere, Mortgage Lender

What do you like best about being a mortgage lender?

Jenna: Getting to know my customers and providing the best customer service. Buying a home is exciting and I like that I can be involved in the process.

What is your top tip for home buyers?

Jenna: My top tip for home buyers is to get pre-approved. Once we know the total loan amount they’re pre-approved for, we can discuss down payment options and what kind of monthly mortgage payment would work with their budget.

What’s the best trip you ever took?

Jenna: I went to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico with my family. One of the highlights of the trip was when we rented scooters in Cozumel and explored the island.

Who is your mentor and why?

Jenna: My mom. Over the years she has given me the help, advice, and tools to succeed and be successful in my personal and professional life.

What do you hope your customers say about you?

Jenna: That I am easy to work with and go above and beyond to help get them into their home.
