Name of Your Business

radius financial group.

How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?

My work allows me to provide guidance and education during one of the biggest milestones in a person’s life, buying a home. My purpose in life is to help others in a way that sparks joy for both myself and for them and I believe that my role allows me to do that. Creating a memorable and educational experience for others when it comes to home buying is something that I pride myself in. I truly believe in helping each person achieve their homeownership dream and I am honored to be a part of their journey. In return they will forever a be a part of my “family” as I treat each person the same way as I would treat my own blood.

Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?

My ideal client is anyone who wants an authentic human experience in their home buying or refinance journey. Of course someone can go online, click a button and get a mortgage. My ideal client is the person who wants to understand the “why” behind what they are doing and who would like to be educated and excited along the way. The majority of my clientele are single women. The mortgage industry is notoriously and historically male-dominated, and many women simply feel uncomfortable exploring the real estate world as a result. I want each woman I speak with to feel empowered to take their wealth into their own hands and make their homeownership dreams come true.
