Move-Up Buyer Specialist & Branch Manager, NMLS# 113607

In the mortgage business for over 25 years, David understands that every mortgage loan should be viewed as a smart investment tool, and not just a necessary evil to getting a house. Before offering any loan, he looks at the whole qualifying picture, including what objectives the mortgage needs to accomplish for the family…only then does he offer a solution. A strategic planner, David’s “Smart Money Mortgage” approach means, the loan will do much more than just put a person in a home.

Dana Archambeau

Senior Loan Processor

Dana began her mortgage career in the Neolithic Period, around 12,000 years ago with the Bedrock Bank & Trust (the ORIGINAL BB&T).  From the beginning, Dana LOVED helping First Time Cave Owners find their dream caves.  But she has seen a few changes in the industry. Today, she no longer has to battle saber-tooth tigers for cave-squatting rights.  But she does push and sometimes fight your loan file to the closing table.  Dana is our power-house Loan Processor and quite simply, she is the reason that our loans close on time!
