Get to Know Lynden Carnahan, CMA
I graduated from Linfield College with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. After ten years of teaching high school math, I decided to steer my career in a new direction. Being a natural educator and lover of numbers, I have found my passion in using math and finances as a way to help families get into the home of their dreams.
My passion is driven by giving families the opportunity to make buying a home, one of the most significant decisions in your life, enjoyable, exciting, and stress-free. I am here for you every step of the way. I ask a lot of questions, helping you identify your financial needs and desires. Then I educate you on your individualized options and the home buying process, so your needs are fully met. I am always available to answer questions - even outside of regular business hours.
I was born and raised in McMinnville, Oregon and truly enjoy the riches our state has to offer - especially golfing. Outside of work, I am continually inspired by my two kids and husband to be the best version of myself. Let's partner together to make your homeownership dreams a reality.
What is a Certified Mortgage Advisor?
Why Choose a Certified Mortgage Advisor?
As a Certified Mortgage Advisor, I have been extensively trained in all aspects of mortgage-backed securities, treasuries, and bonds. I provide a hands-on client experience that allows me to fully assess a client's financial picture, understand their future goals, and design a mortgage product to meet those needs.
Personal Wealth Creation
As a CMA, my role is to help clients understand how to use mortgage debt to build sustainable lifelong wealth. I pride myself in assisting clients in creating wealth and retirement strategies that can help them better understand the time value of money and make sure they are on the right path to reach their financial goals.
You're in Good Hands
I take a customized approach to every transaction. We take the necessary time to educate and advise on the multiple loan products available. After identifying mortgage strategies, we educate each scenario's pros and cons and help determine the best loan option to help achieve both short-term and long-term goals.
