About Your Mortgage Loan Originator
"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile." -Albert Einstein
It is Amanda Paddock's sincerest belief that advising clients is more than just her profession - it's a way for her to contribute to her community, and the contribution she makes is helping her clients achieve and sustain the dream of homeownership.
Amanda's objective is to become a trusted advisor to each and every one of her clients - not just for this transaction, but for life. She works with her clients to determine their financial situation and goals, present them with options to suit their needs, and guide them through every step of the approval process - including the most opportune time to lock in their interest rate. She is dedicated to providing every client with an exceptional mortgage experience!
Drawing on almost a decade of mortgage lending experience, Amanda is focused on not only meeting, but exceeding expectations. Her team offers their knowledge and expertise in order to provide education to their clients - not only in regards to a pending transaction, but also future opportunities that may be beneficial to them.
In addition, Amanda's team acts as a resource to support their clients' long term financial wellbeing. To do so, they provide referrals to a network of trusted professionals who are focused on providing the same level of service. These professionals include real estate agents and attorneys - as well as CPAs, financial advisors, and insurance agents - to aid in the achievement of overall financial stability.
As a result of this level of service, a majority of Amanda's clients refer their friends, family members, and co-workers to her for advice on mortgage financing. Presently, over 98% of her business is derived from referrals from either her strategic partners or past clients.
Whether buying, building, or refinancing - Amanda is committed to providing the same quality care. Her time and energy is always dedicated to providing truly "world class" service through honesty, integrity, knowledge, and communication.
Amanda was born and raised in Bedford, NH, but has spent time living in Burlington, VT; Paris, France; and the Gold Coast of Australia. She currently spends the majority of her time between New Hampshire's Southern, Seacoast, and Capitol regions and Nashville, TN - near the Franklin American Mortgage Corporate Headquarters.
When she's not assisting her clients or watching the financial markets, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband, family and friends, traveling as much as possible, reading, sketching, painting, visiting museums, and attending yoga and tai chi classes.

Thank you for helping me make sure I had all my ducks in a row, I knew what needed to be done and for bringing everything together at just the right time in the process.
