I've spent my mortgage career striving to provide my clients with honest answers and advice. There have been constant changes over the past few years in our industry, and I work diligently to keep up with them, assuring my clients the best possible assistance on their loans!

I love educating clients, referral partners, and the public on mortgage developments and mortgage backed securities, and have been published extensively on Mortgage News Daily, Yahoo, Debt Smart, and TheBasisPoint.com. I have also been quoted in the LA Times and Washington Post.

Proud to have just been named a 5 Star Lender by 5 Star Awards and St Louis Magazine for the third consecutive year. Only 3% of all lenders nationally receive this honor, thanks to my clients and agent partners for their great feedback!

Specialties: Credit Consulting; loan engineering & post loan follow up to ensure my clients always have the best possible loan for their circumstances. Writing Jumbo, Conventional, FHA and VA streamline loans nationally!

So far this year, I've closed loans in CA, WA, WY, TN, IL, MO, KS, GA, FL, VA, OH, NV, and AR. Love the flexibility I have to help clients nationally, with my local underwriting and processing staff that has been together for over 10 years.

"Ted is a first class mortgage advisor. I have trusted his expertise and been very pleased by his customer service with my clients for nearly 4 years. You will never have to worry about your client experience with Ted, he goes above and beyond to bring value to the people he serves. Thanks for all that you do Ted!! "

-Michael C.

"Ted assisted us in refinancing recently, and my wife and I had a great experience. Ted was very attentive and helpful through this process. Not only would we recommend Ted to anyone, but truly appreciated his hard work and genuineness. "


"Ted has demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and knowledge at every opportunity upon which we have worked together. I would not hesitate to refer my best clients and friend to Ted for his assistance. "

-Dennis C.

"I had a great experience refinancing my home loan with Ted. I always felt as if Ted was looking out for my best interest and provided the best options for my family and me. Ted was always available when I had questions and responded in a professional and kind manor. The process from start to finish was straightforward and simple. I would highly recommend Ted as a resource for a home loan. Thanks Ted! "

-Josh A.

"I have gone through 2 refis with Ted and although I have never met him, I feel like he's a long lost friend when I went through the refi the second time. Great rates, covers your closing or gives you the best options to save you money. He makes everything so simple, everything can be done via email, and gets me a closer to my house on a Friday night right before Christmas! He's ALWAYS available to assist with any questions and he's just as diligent in his customer service with any friends you refer to him. Thank you Ted! "


"Ted helped us with refinancing our primary residence and an investment property, taking advantage of the record low rates available in early 2013. There were multiple transactions, he's in the Mid-West and I'm on the East Coast, I disputed the appraisal - nothing threw him. He and his team worked really well with my title company here locally with no problem whatsoever. Communication was constant with us during the process even adapting to my e-mail or phone communication preference based on my schedule. He managed to extend our rate lock for a few days, even though rates had risen by 3/8 of a point from our lock. As with any re-fi, it should be that the quicker you are with providing information, the quicker you'll close. Definitely the case here. No hesitation with this recommendation - if you need a mortgage, just use him for it. "


"Excellent, attentive, and professional service. Everything went as smooth as could be."

-Oliver & Lynda
