Tabitha has extensive mortgage experience. She worked in the industry for almost a decade and opened her own broker shop in early 2006. To this day, she still feels there was nothing more rewarding than knowing the type of effect she had on a family’s life, simply by assisting them in the financing of their home. During her time in the mortgage industry, she was a consistent top performer, won several sales awards and closed over $50 million in business. She now uses her knowledge of the industry to ghostwrite web copy and blog articles for several U.S.-based mortgage companies.
