About Sondra

With over 30 years of experience in the mortgage business, Sondra has an established, diverse, and distinguished track record of success. Her borrowers have said they love working with her because she is honest, hard-working, and really takes the time to walk them through the entire mortgage process.

Sondra was born in DC, but grew up in Montgomery County and raised her three (now grown) children in the area. She currently resides in the Downtown Crown section of Gaithersburg, MD and loves where she lives. And, though her kids are now out creating homes of their own, she enjoys spending time with her Great Dane, diabetic/one-eyed cat, and another cat who “so far seems normal.” She also has fun doing Zumba, going skiing, and vegetating on the beach. Her perfect day is cooking a good meal for her family and being with her children.

For college, Sondra returned to her birthplace and attended American University; she graduated with a B.A. in Psychology. That knowledge and understanding of how the human mind works has helped her become an empathetic, problem-solving mortgage professional who can really get to the heart of what her borrowers need.

Sondra’s greatest achievement is surviving cancer — twice. Now, she is an active, passionate supporter of the Lymphoma Research Foundation because “I owe my life to the advances made in the treatment of this disease.” The foundation is devoted to the research that goes into the treatment — and hopefully eradication of — lymphoma, which is the most common type of blood cancer.< /p>

Borrowers are consistently impressed by Sondra’s experience, drive, and knowledge of the mortgage industry. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer in the DMV, have unconventional financial circumstances, or need help finding the right loan for you, Sondra will educate and support you the entire way.

    We are repeat clients having used Embrace Home Loans through Sondra Shemer only many times over for Refi’s. We always trust that Sondra will do right by us and she does indeed. Her processing staff is also attentive and conscientious regarding our loan at hand..obtaining the best rate is always of utmost importance and is typically the driving force to refi. While embrace is certainly not the cheapest lender around they seem to be competitive. Sondra is very accommodating to our needs!

    We tried to get a loan one way. When that was not working out, Sondra worked with us to come up with a different way. Settlement occurred without a glitch
