Let me tell you a little about myself.  I worked my way through college as a Title Examiner and have been hooked on real estate ever since.  I can’t believe that was over 25 years ago.  

I first became a Loan Officer after moving to Texas.  I managed a Title Company and as an Escrow Officer I was conducting the closings.  It was prior to the 2008 crash.  As I sat down at the closing table with borrowers to explain what each document meant, a majority were surprised at the terms they were signing to and several broke down in tears.   I decided to become a loan officer to help educate borrowers about the process.  It became my mission. 

Texas is not an attorney state so being able to perform the closing was an experience I would not been able to have in Massachusetts.  Over the years, I have worked as a Title Examiner, Processor, Closer, Funder, and Post-Closing Manager all of which gives me valuable insight.  My motto is “Be part of the solution not the problem”.   My previous experience allows me to anticipate pitfalls and hurdles when working with my borrower’s and steer around them

When I moved back to Massachusetts to be closer to family, I knew I wanted to work with a company that had the same mindset, educate borrower’s first and if possible, join hands through the mortgage process.

Helping Hands Community Partner’s (HHCP) mission is to “Strengthen the Community”.  It was started in 2012 to revitalize neighborhoods and help families achieve home ownership by renovating abandoned homes, using local labor, and then selling the homes at below market prices to veterans, seniors and low to moderate income families.

During the initial years of operation HHCP found these families were having a hard time navigating the mortgage process, they were frustrated and being denied opportunities due to misinformation and being underserved.  It was then HHCP decided to partner with Alain Valles.  He brought to the table over thirty years of experience.  Alain had previously arranged financing for over of a billion dollars in transactions including purchases, refinances, and reverse mortgages.  Most importantly was Alain’s passion to educate.  It was the perfect alignment for HHCP to help these families achieve the dream of homeownership one home at a time.    

Having a son who is deployed in Afghanistan I know how important it is to treat people with respect.  My mission to educate is as important now as it was all those years ago.  By treating others the way you want to be treated, I have built my business one relationship at a time.  I love what I do and feel privileged to be a part of making dreams come true.
