Working with Karen was great, she was patient with us as first time home buyers and went over everything as many times as we needed, we couldn't have asked for someone better to walk us through the process of buying our first home!

I am so excited to let everyone know that I am a Loan Officer for Shamrock Financial in East Providence, RI. With over 14 years of experience in the mortgage industry, I have been in the company of some most recognized names in New England. When I interviewed with Shamrock Financial I knew it was the company I wanted to grow with. We have a strong investor base and offer many different programs for financing including FHA 203K renovation loan, which is one of my favorite loans, it allows you, the home owner, to have all of your things on your wish list. When I did sign on with Shamrock Financial my agents & referral partners were very excited, they know that Shamrock steps up when other companies can’t.

Customer service is our key to success, we make sure our clients feel like they are family for life. Please call me if you have any questions or concerns about purchasing or refinancing your existing mortgage. I would love to help you and your family on the road to home ownership.

biography questions shamrock financial staff pages
What path brought you to Shamrock Financial?

I had several friends that convinced me that Shamrock Financial would be a good fit. I admit, I was a little hesitant until I stepped through the door – and then I knew they were right.


What are you known for professionally?

I am known for being upfront and honest. I give immediate and undivided attention to all my clients and referral partners, either by picking up the phone right away or returning calls within a few hours. I treat each and every client as if they are my only buyers.


What most excites you about your work at Shamrock Financial?

I am excited about every aspect of this business, particularly that I can make someone’s dreams about home ownership become a reality.


What do you really enjoy doing in your personal time?

I love renovating and then reselling homes. I take an old rundown property and transform it into someone’s dreams. I find it rewarding that the next homeowner will have no worries about their new home for many years.


What do your typical clients say about you?

They say that I never give up. No matter how difficult a situation is, I continue until I find a workable solution.


Where can we find you when you are not working?

Not working? What’s that? Weekends and nights off are very rare for me, but I actually love working.


Are there any non-profits organizations that are special for you?

Definitely the Make a Wish foundation. My sweet son needed a heart monitor for the first two years of his life. Make a Wish supplied the care and I will never forget it.


Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Rhode Island and I still live here. I think it’s the best kept secret around.


Do you take part in any volunteer activities? 

I volunteer at the Newman Congressional Church food pantry.


What would be impossible for you to give up?

Food! I love good food!

Please wait...
