Tamara began in the mortgage industry in 1990 with a small brokerage firm in Colorado Springs, Colorado in the 2nd lien division managing a warehouse line of over $2 million dollars. From there she transferred into underwriting, processing and finally managing the QC and repurchase department.
In 1999 she left the company to start her own Mortgage Broker Company, Custom Mortgage Solutions, Inc. which originated refinances and purchases for all paper grades. In 2005 Tamara relocated to Denver, CO and has worked for companies such as Finance America, BNC, and LenderLive, and Pulte Mortgage in the origination and underwriting departments.
In 2007 she moved into the Servicing side of the industry beginning at Aurora Loan Services where she managed several aspects of the business from default to loss mitigation underwriting. When Aurora Loan Services closed Tamara transitioned over to LenderLive Network as the Director of Servicing Operations. There she was tasked with helping to build out the Servicing Call Center. She managed the Customer Service, Collections and Loss Mitigation departments, helped to create, and implement their policy and procedures, as well as developed and delivered the agent training. Over the last four years the team grew the portfolio from 2,500 loans to over 90,000 loans which included Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans, as well as FHA, VA, USDA, and private investors. In 2016, LenderLive closed its servicing division. Tamara then joined Pulte Mortgage as a VP, Regional Processing Manager, where she managed a team of loan processors working on new build purchase loans. She is well versed in both front-end origination and back-end servicing.
When she is not working, Tamara enjoys spending time with her daughter and her dogs! She enjoys paddle boarding, trips to the mountains, and sports of all kinds!
