Proudest professional accomplishment: Recently I had the oppor¬tunity to help a legal guardian overcome some underwriting hurdles to purchase a condominium for her disabled son. I also had the opportunity to facilitate an unconventional closing so a couple in their third trimester of pregnancy could get into their new house on an expedited basis and avoid having to make temporary living arrangements.
