Hi! My name is Dana Blakeway. As you prepare to make one of the biggest steps of your life – purchasing a home – I first want to start off by saying: Congrats! Did you know that the average person only goes through this process 4-5 times in their lifetime? With that in mind; when choosing a partner to walk you through the home buying process, a few things are important: connection, commitment, and an expectation for quality. Everyone’s financial background and transaction is different, which is why it’s so important to have a partner to navigate you through.
Here is where I come in. I will interpret your wants and needs into a seamless & enjoyable process which will allow you to stay informed and involved every step of the way. I strive to not just help you achieve your goal of purchasing a home, but to end the process feeling like you’ve learned a valuable lesson while also gaining a friend. My goal is to be your guide through the home buying process now, and for life.
I offer expertise in Conventional, FHA, USDA, and specialize in VA loans as well. As a military spouse I can connect with buyers on a level that most other loan originators cannot. I understand their questions, concerns, their unique lifestyle, and even their lingo.
I was born and raised in Waukesha, WI, a small town just outside of Milwaukee- (Yes, I love cheese and the Green Bay Packers are my life). As a teenager I would do odd jobs for my brother, who has been a Mortgage Loan Originator since ‘09. I enjoyed working for him when I could and was frequently told by family and friends that I should pursue a career in the mortgage industry. However, it wasn’t until I moved to Tampa, FL with my husband Justin; who currently serves in the United States Marine Corps, that I was offered a job by my brother to be on his team as a loan originator.
Looking forward to being your mortgage partner for life!
