Tammy MetzgerLoan Officer
Hello, my name is Tammy Metzger and I am excited to help you finance (or refinance) your home! My goal is to make your transaction as smooth and stress-free as possible. I personally handle every aspect of your loan process up to closing, and will always keep you posted on loan status and take your call should you have any questions.
A little about me: I moved to Austin, Texas in 2008 for graduate studies at The University of Texas at Austin and fell in love with the community. I started working for a real estate broker as Director of Operations shortly after completing my master’s degree; deeply involved in all aspects of the real estate process. When I made the jump to mortgage lending, those years in real estate gave me the foundation for a quick understanding of the lending side. I worked as a loan processor for a few years, gathering the expertise in lending guidelines and documentation that gives me the know-how to put together a solid initial loan package, cutting down on frustration, last-minute delays, and stress you may encounter elsewhere. My approach is a pro-active one; putting together all the pieces of the puzzle prior to submission to undrwriting so it's smooth sailing into your closing. I am emotionally-invested in the outcome of every loan I process and originate, and genuinely want to give you the best experience possible and build a long-term relationship with every client.
While the vast majority of the loans I originate are conventional, as a "military brat" (my father and brother both served in the United States Air Force, and my step-father in the United States Navy) I am always eager to assist veterans with VA loans. The Veteran's Administration has some outstanding loan terms to offer right now, and they make the process quite simple for our veterans.
In early 2020, after 12 lovely years living in Austin, Texas I relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico to be closer to my family, and get back to my true love – the mountains! I continue to process and originate mortgage loans for the greater Austin market, and will visit on a regular basis when travel is feasible again, but I now call New Mexico home, and am working to build new relationships here.
When not working, you can find me with my two dogs - River and Zoe - exploring the immense public lands New Mexico has to offer.
Trust me with all your mortgage needs... I won't drop the ball!
