To start, let me just say I LOVE WHAT I DO! Helping people and families get into homes is an incredibly rewarding experience and the reason I chose this career path. There is nothing better than seeing smiling faces at the settlement table.

As a seasoned mortgage professional, his goal is to help make the home mortgage process as easy for you as possible. He’s been in the mortgage business now for almost 20 years. In that time, he’s worked for a few small brokerages, a fortune 500 builder as their preferred lender, several top retail lenders in the country and now the Acela Mortgage Team powered by Norcom. My diverse background with the distinct types of companies has served me well in gaining industry knowledge and experience. This allows him to work in two capacities: building and growing this company with incredible talent as well as assisting his clients in finding the best options for their situation with the highest quality and service. His mission is to make the Acela Mortgage Team a name in the industry with a focus on customer service and satisfaction!

Adam is well-versed in many home loan programs including first-time homebuyer loans, down payment assistance and grants, FHA, VA, USDA, conventional loans, as well as non-conforming, jumbo and non-QM programs. He is also a specialist in renovation and construction loans which is rare in the industry. Currently, he is licensed to originate loans in Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and South Carolina, with a concentration in the Maryland counties of Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, St. Mary's, Prince George's, Baltimore/Baltimore City, Cecil, Harford, Queen Anne, Caroline, Kent, Dorchester, and Talbot.

Whether you are purchasing your dream home, performing home renovations, flipping houses, building a rental portfolio, refinancing an outstanding loan, or consolidating debt, I can help you find the right loan program at a low rate no matter what your needs are. The goal here is to create lasting relationships with each and every client and to continue providing excellent service for many years to come. If you are in the industry and looking to join an organization with these values, you've found your new mortgage home. To speak directly with me, simply give me a call anytime or feel free to utilize any of the interactive tools offered throughout the site.

On the personal side, he attended the University of Maryland - GO TERPS! - and grew up primarily in beautiful Southern Maryland. Prior to that I had the luxury of living all over the country (and world) being the son of a Naval Officer. I currently live in Huntingtown with my wife and two sons. When I'm not working or spending time with my family, you will probably find me in my yard, on the golf course or at a local sporting event. I am a member of the following organizations:

  • Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals
  • Calvert County Chamber of Commerce
  • Anne Arundel County Association of Realtors (MAR/NAR) Affiliate
  • Prince Georges County Association of Realtors (MAR/NAR) Affiliate
  • Southern Maryland Association of Realtors (MAR/NAR) Affiliate
  • Sons of American Legion
  • More to come…
