About Tim

Tim joined Embrace Home Loans in 2009 and currently serves as Regional Sales Executive for our Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania branches. Supporting his regional team of branch managers, Tim helps them build their own teams and serve their local real estate communities. He’s also always keeping an eye out for new talent in his region and looking for ways to advance Embrace’s footprint throughout Greater Washington DC, Greater Baltimore, MD, and Greater Philadelphia, PA.

With more than two decades of mortgage banking experience, Tim has built his reputation on serving his clients and his community at the highest level. Prior to joining Embrace, Tim worked at Mason Dixon Funding for over 10 years as a Senior Loan Officer and Branch Manager. He’s an active member of the Maryland Mortgage Bankers and Brokers Association (MMBBA), Home Builders Association of Maryland, and the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Tim also has an extensive history in professional, business, and life coaching. He’s currently certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as an Associate Certified Business Coach.

Tim holds a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Maryland. He grew up in Gaithersburg, MD and he currently lives in Fulton, MD with his wife Emily, and daughter Maya. In his spare time, he loves running, biking, and swimming — so much so that he’s spent the last few years participating in local multi-sport events, including over 20 triathlons and one Half IRONMAN. He has a small place on the water in Ocean City, MD, so his perfect day would consist of a nice run in the morning, spending the day on the beach with his family, followed by a dinner at one of their favorite local restaurants.

“In this digital age, information is everywhere and homebuyers have many lenders to choose from for their mortgage needs. Our highly skilled and dedicated sales professionals, paired with our amazing backroom of support partners, allows Embrace to provide a mortgage experience unlike any other. Embrace is a company that cares — about each other, our customers, and our communities. This is what separates us from the competition and produces raving fans time and time again!”

    Clear communications. I was told that I was cleared to close and then was asked for more documents that could have been requested earlier. The closing was delayed due to embraces delay getting the title company the necessary paperwork. Although I was told I could change the deed to our trust after the fact, I was not told that would incur additional fees.

    I have bought and sold several homes with Embrace Home Loans over the years. Embrace is my go-to company for all real estate transactions.

    This is the 6th time we have worked with Tim and his team. Each time he delivers superb service and great results. However the job we gave him this time is more challenging than previous ones. We had to overcome multiple obstacles to achieve our refinance. Devin worked tirelessly to help us and we greatly appreciate her hard work, dedication, patience and Tim's expertise at the crucial moment to finally get the job done. In the end, the refinance will be saving us more money than before.

    Loan amount was <$500k. Doc requests seemed onerous. Tax returns + bank statements are understandable. After that showed I've got $5 million at Vanguard and annual income of >$250k, your team came back with multiple additional requests: copies of client contracts, other proof that my business exists, a signed statement that we aren't part of an HOA, etc. (How high would HOA dues have to be to deny us this loan?) It made me wish we had just paid cash. Which we could have done TEN TIMES OVER.
