Thanks for stopping by. About Patrick Ritchie…
Patrick Ritchie started in the mortgage business in 2001 as a loan officer. He quickly learned everything he could about the mortgage guidelines and began teaching CE classes to real estate agents in Arizona about mortgage finance. After 21 years of doing and teaching mortgages he has mastered the process, which has been a huge benefit to his clients and REALTOR partners.
With two decades of experience as a loan officer, Patrick is the person to guide you from beginning to end by avoiding the potential roadblocks and delivering a smooth closing. In 2019 Patrick made the decision to change from being a mortgage banker to becoming a mortgage broker in order to offer his clients greater choice on interest rates, programs and underwriting approach. This decision has given him the ability to fully utilize his two decades of knowledge and experiences as well as best serve his clients by finding the optimal option for their situation.
