Mike in Tucson: Back In The Saddle Again!

Sunstreet Mortgage Logo









MiracleMike in the saddleI've landed at Sunstreet Mortgage here in Tucson!  I took my first signed application this afternoon at 4:30 p.m., a VA purchase for a young family here at Davis Monthan Air Force Base.  The REALTOR who referred the couple is Active Rain's Kevin Wood.

One of the loan officers at Sunstreet is Cathy Radford, my riding partner from our Miracle Mortgage days back in 2004.  (Her horse is named "Cash.")

Thanks for all the comments on Friday's post, and your emails and well-wishes. I'll have more about the new company later this week as I get settled in.

EDIT:  We can originate in all 50 states with Sunstreet!


I'm Mike in Tucson, your preferred Tucson, AZ Mortgage lender.
