In the competitive real estate market, buyers need timely mortgage advice they can trust, especially when it’s their first home purchase. Stacey Manokhina has been committed to doing exactly that—providing clients with the right insights and effective guidance—throughout her career as a mortgage agent and underwriter.
Prior to joining Outline, Stacey worked within the broker channel as a mortgage agent. The position helped enhance her expertise and experience by giving her the opportunity to work with a wide spectrum of clients, the majority being first-time buyers. A keen observer, Stacey took the time to better understand her clients’ objectives and learn how she could fine-tune the financing experience to make it as seamless and enjoyable as possible. “I think the biggest gaps for a lot of first-time buyers is understanding the qualification process, down payment / closing costs required, and how to financially prepare for a multiple offer scenario,” she explains. “I’ve always focused on helping them bridge those gaps.” At the same time, Stacey helped clients think a step ahead, often by helping them acquire investment properties through a range of strategies including refinancing.
Stacey brings that in-depth industry knowledge to Outline in her role as Underwriter where she is an invaluable conduit among our clients, mortgage agents, and lenders. Her key piece of advice to clients? — “take full advantage of our team’s resources, experience and support to help navigate the mortgage industry. It changes constantly and the better you understand the process and the market as a whole, the better you can map out the steps to obtaining your dream home.”
