About Eric

My goal is to be your partner through an exciting, but sometimes anxious process in your life. I will be right with you every step of the way from loan application to closing and beyond. Whether purchasing your first home, buying your forever house, building new, or refinancing, First Federal has the products and expertise to get you to the closing table.


My wife and I live in Elkhart, work in Elkhart and go to church in Elkhart so this is our home too. This allows me the flexibility to work with you when YOU are available whether its 9AM on a Saturday at Starbucks or at 5:15PM on Tuesday evening before basketball practice.

Exceptional Service

I will provide the highest level of customer service; this means working WITH you to. It means being thorough up front with expectations. It also means being there for you every step of the way from application to close! We also service our loans so your loan always stays local.


I have been in mortgage lending since 2014. Prior to that, I was a teller and desk banker for 3 years so my experience isn’t just in mortgages, but in the banking relationship as a whole making me an asset on many fronts.

First Time Homebuyers

It couldn’t be any easier for first time buyers with free pre-qualifications and low closing costs. We have special programs for first time buyers with competitive rates, fast processing time and low down payments. We are now offering a Premiere First Time Homebuyer Loan Program for qualified borrowers of no PMI mortgage insurance, even with 5% down.

Borrower's checklist for purchases

Actually, no documents are required from you at the time of application. But to speed up the loan processing time, you can prepare for the application appointment by providing the following information:

  • Signed purchase agreement
  • Driver's license or state photo ID
  • 2 recent pay stubs
  • Phone number for Human Resources Dept. to verify employment.
  • 2 months bank statements for checking and savings account
  • 2 most recent years of W2s (if self employed, commissioned or part owner of a corporation or business will need complete federal tax returns, and corporate tax returns)
  • Recent 401K or retirement accounts
  • Pre-approvals are free, but for a purchase or refinance we will need a check for $350 for the application fee

Borrower's checklist for refinances

If you are refinancing, along with everything from the purchase list above, you will also need the following items:

  • Previous titlework
  • Homeowner's insurance statement
  • Complete loan number/information of loan(s) to be paid off
