Brenda Williamson’s 4 tips for a seamless lending process

August 27, 2019

Posted by in News


For many homebuyers, the lending process is full of potential obstacles that create delays and undue stress. There are, however, steps the buyer can take to mitigate many of these obstacles and make the process much easier. Lender Brenda Williamson provides four tried-and-true tips to help you pave a smooth road to the closing table:


1.) Understand the various options for YOUR situation.

It is important to work with a lender that will help plan a mortgage that is best for the buyer. A buyer may ask for the typical 30-year conventional fixed mortgage, but that may not be the best option for them. For a buyer with a lower credit score and down payment less than 20%, the monthly PMI (private mortgage insurance) payment would be muchhigher than necessary.


PMI is based on the amount you are putting down, the loan amount and credit scores. For buyers with higher credit scores seeking a conventional loan with less than 20% down, the monthly PMI amount can be very low. The higher the scores, the lower the PMI amount.

Visit Jessie Norman’s skincare boutique and you will find facials, peels and a myriad of other services. But one thing you won’t find is a one-size-fits-all experience. Jessie, a certified Medical Aesthetician, carefully customizes services to each client based on their specific skin.


The experienced skincare provider launched her business, Jessie Lindstrom Aesthetics, earlier this year in Ponte Vedra Beach. She is also a regular attendee at Davidson Realty’s monthly B2B Networking Events in Jacksonville Beach.


Keep reading to learn a little about Jessie and her business. Also, come meet Jessie in person at the next networking event on Wednesday, August 21!

Tell us a bit about your services. I offer facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, oxygen treatments and dermaplane. Facial services are offered in 30-, 60- and 90-minute increments and are customizable. I offer additional enhancements to treat skin types and conditions. For example, let’s say you have an oily skin type, but your skin condition is dehydrated, congested with blackheads, and you are focused on anti-aging. We can treat all those conditions and concerns. No one falls into just one category of skin conditions.
