Carmen “Ellie” Lacey
Growing up and working in her family’s New York Graphic Design business, Ellie learned early on that service must be tailored to the individual client, and that surpassing her client’s expectations leads to success. She also learned that with determined action, most problems can be solved.
She loves both the challenge and gratification of meeting and exceeding her clients’ goals.
As a full-time Listing Manager for the Cathy Staskel Team, Ellie’s approach to real estate is focused on the needs and goals of her clients. As part of this successful team, it’s important to Ellie that her clients know that we are all dedicated to making every transaction proceed as smoothly and effortlessly as possible from start to finish. We all strive to create long term relationships/friendships with our clients based on trust and the optimum in customer service.
Ellie relocated to the Charlotte area a few years ago from the North East and every day she gains a greater appreciation for all that this area has to offer. She is bilingual (English/Spanish). In her spare time, she enjoys long weekend getaways to see her granddaughter in Pennsylvania. Ellie is also a licensed Broker and is ready to go to work for you today!!
The mortgage market is ever changing, several years ago many changes went into effect that affected many people in qualifying for a loan. Most of the changes that were implemented were needed, some made it so good quality clients could not purchase homes. In the recent months there have been some changes that were good common sense decisions.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will now allow debt to income up to 50% VS prior 45%
Appraisal valuations can hit on purchase loans so no appraisal needed in some cases
Possibility of 1 year tax returns for self-employed borrowers
A customer might not have to provide any income verification if there company reports to “The work number”
Student loans can now use a payment of “Zero” if they are on an income based payment plan
Jumbo loans up to 90% LTV
In the coming months the agencies will also be enhancing there “Day One Certainty” which will allow more clients to qualify and have a much more streamlined process to get a mortgage!
