Get to Know J. Lauren Parker

My primary professional goal as a Loan Officer is to provide such a great experience that my clients want to share that news with their friends and family.That great experience comes from listening to my clients needs, meeting their desires through sound financial recommendations and understanding the loan process to ensure an on time closing for their new home.I am truly passionate about getting it right the first time.My philosophy about customer service is to treat people the way that I would like to be treated if I were in their shoes. Buying a home can be stressful and everything that I can do to make that process easier is appreciated by my clients. 

The most important thing handling any customer transaction is communication.  I want to be available to my clients and agents when it is convenient for THEM.  I always answer calls and email the same day.

                                                                              I've been originating loans since 1999  and before  mortgages I worked as a commercial real estate loan officer, construction lending coordinator, and spent nearly 20 years working on mineral titles and leases as a petroleum landman in Oklahoma and California.  During the past 10 years, I have been obtained my "CPL", Certified Mortgage Planner, Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist ("CMPS"), and Certified Networker designation.Since moving to Phoenix in 2005, I have been an Affiliate Member of the West  Maricopa Association of Realtors (WEMAR).  I sponsor 2 Realtor Tours each month that cover the NW Valley area, with emphasis on the Communities of  Sun City, Sun City West, Sun City Grand, Corte Bella, Surprise,  and Waddell.


“I take that same passion to my lending clients in working on the right loan product to provide a safe and stable home that will serve their needs for years to come.”

Did you ever notice that most people are NOT smiling as they drive down the road?   I just think we need more smiles, more love, and happiness in our world.  While I fully appreciate how serious the largest financial decision in your life is, I want to approach that decision with the most positive experience possible.

If this was my first home, I would want a loan officer that KNEW without a doubt, we would be closing on time and with as little stress as possible.  She would be smiling and calm as we discussed what's needed for my loan and how long the process will take.  She would be my guide through the freeway maze of FHA, VA, Conventional loan products.  I would be smiling, happy, and certain that I was taken care of in this incredible journey!
LoanDogAz makes most of us smile.

With my vast experience in real estate and lending, I am also a passionate pet owner.  I'm an accredited pet trainer, certified AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, certified dog team with Therapy Dogs International, and am passionate about people training their pets.  I'm also an advocate for spay & neuter for all family pets.  I believe that a trained dog is unlikely to end up in the pound or abandoned by its family.  When the family becomes involved in consistent pet behavior training, they have created a safer and more stable environment for their family member, the dog. Our pets bring so much love and joy to our lives!
