Natasha Bauer - Production Assistant

Natasha has been working with Todd since 2014 and has over 10 years of mortgage banking experience. As an underwriter at a large bank, Natasha spent 7 years evaluating potential borrowers' loan scenarios for situations that did not meet the traditional lending requirements. She is fluent in 4 languages, a Deakin University and University of Chicago alumni, and holds an Advanced Certificate in Customer Service. This technical experience, along with her gentle and helpful personality, combine to make our clients feel comfortable and well taken care of throughout the entire process.

Natasha lives in the DC area with her husband and enjoys spending time with her family, swimming, watching movies and reading.

Darline Dean - Senior Processor

Darline has been working with Todd since 2012 and began her career in the local mortgage industry in 2007.  She has served as a closer, underwriter and now in her current capacity as a processor.  Darline is responsible for collecting, organizing, and validating all of the documentation before submitting the full file to the underwriter. Given her extensive tenure in the business there isn't much that she hasn't seen before, which makes us confident that we have everything addressed prior to the underwriter's initial review.

Darline was born and raised in Southern Maryland, and still lives there today - when she's not working, you can usually find her at the gym or hanging out with her family.
