Lindy Parks

Mortgage Loan Consultant, Security National Mortgage

I have worked helping Utah families and individuals with their mortgage needs for over 14 years. My experience working with clients moving from out of state for the residency program and my understanding of residency contracts can help make the process much quicker and easier.

In addition I understand that buying a home can be overwhelming and confusing. My goal is to make the process straightforward and smooth from start to finish.

Working with the right lender and company can make or break your deal and this makes me well equipped to serve my clients. With in-house processing, underwriting and funding, as well as a full spectrum of mortgage products I can offer the best loan for your needs.

Whether you are a first-time home buyer, a move-up buyer, or want to refinance, I will take the time to understand your goals and I take pride in keeping my clients informed of the progress all the way to and through the closing.

I have also arranged special discounts for University of Utah residents. Please visit my website at: www.snmc.com/lindyparks for more information.

Testimonials:

“Lindy was a great help in the home buying process. She was able to work with our purchasing timeline when other companies were not. She made buying a home from out of state manageable, and was there to answer our questions every step of the way.”  
Trevor Smith

“Marissa and I wanted to thank you for the professionalism and hard work in managing our loan which I just finished signing about an hour ago. I approached you a month ago with a hurried phone call because I was dissatisfied with the loan options available with every other lender I had worked with up to that point. I almost couldn’t believe that you could provide the product you described, but I appreciate your candor and confidence that you could see my loan through and you’ve delivered on your word. Furthermore, I appreciate your willingness to answer all of my questions and respond very promptly with every correspondence. Marissa couldn’t believe how quickly you responded to my emails last night as we were finishing up details late in the evening, a characteristic of yours that has been consistent throughout the entire process. Finally, thanks for being patient with me as a first time home buyer, unrepresented by a real estate agent and by nature a very thorough (probably in excess) person.”

UMAFS offers UMA member physicians a full range of financial products and services. Our primary focus is to assist our clients in meeting their life goals through the proper management of their financial resources. Our success is not measured by performance statistics but rather by our clients` success in achieving their personal financial goals.

Many physicians often regard financial planning as complex and confusing. As a result, they often miss out on many potentially rewarding financial opportunities. They also take unnecessary risks and fail to adequately protect their assets. That is where UMAFS can provide a second opinion and assistance. Our goal is to take the mystery out of investing, managing risks, preparing for retirement, and preserving your wealth.

Our process begins with an in-depth evaluation of your current financial situation. Once we have established your overall objectives, we will focus on your specific goals.

We will work with you side by side on a very personal basis so that you are confident in and comfortable with the suggestions we make. Implementation, continuous monitoring, and as necessary, modifications, are integral parts of the process.

Constance (Connie) has been a Realtor for over 20 years and although she has sold homes in Park City, Stansbury Park, Centerville and HomeSmartProvo, she works primarily in the Salt Lake area. She lives in Sugarhouse, where she and her husband, Alan, bought a one-owner, 1939 home and have renovated it to its original charm, using Green building products and practices. She believes every home has a great story to tell, but she especially loves those homes in the historic areas like Sugarhouse, the Avenues and the 15th And 15th areas.

Connie holds the Green Realtor Certification (the National Association of Realtors sustainable property designation) after seeing and being personally involved in a responsible renovation and remodeling project.

In her spare time, Connie enjoys skiing and bicycling with her husband and her friends, and volunteering for non-profit animal rescue groups in Utah and Mexico. She and Alan also enjoy traveling and rarely miss their annual trip to Mexico. Connie’s and Alan’s home currently includes three 4-legged kids (dogs), Faith, Annie and Harley.

“Constance (a.k.a. Connie) was integral in helping us sell our house after it had sat on the market for over a year. She took care of all of the minor maintenance issues that were hindering our sale; issue that as residents we did not have time to complete. With her hard work, the house sold the day it went back on the market, and we closed within 2 weeks!!!!”
Dr. Lauren Zollinger & Dr. Robert Jones (gastoenterology and hepatology at IMC)

“We first contacted Connie to inquire about homes for sale when we were searching remotely from New York with no prior knowledge of Salt Lake City. She proved invaluable in guiding us toward the best neighborhoods for our budget and needs and she went above and beyond in her efforts to help us find a place to live. Although we ended up renting for the first two years, Connie’s generous spirit did not end there. She met us on our very first night here and took us out to dinner and then invited us to her 4th of July BBQ! Connie puts her heart and soul into helping people not only find a home but feel at home in Salt Lake City. When we were ready to buy a home she worked tirelessly on our behalf to find the right house, recommended a stellar mortgage lender, home inspector, contractor, etc. and patiently guided us through the ins and outs of home buying. I would highly recommend Connie if you are looking for very caring, personal, and knowledgeable service in your search for a home. We don’t know what we would have done without her and will definitely call on her when the time comes to sell our home.”
Genny & Conan Kinsey

“Connie was an excellent realtor and advocate for us during our home buying experience. Having worked with resident physicians before, she knew that our schedule was hectic, our budget tight, and our free time precious. She always worked within the budget and location limits that we set and went out of her way to dig up several properties for us to see on a weekend (or weekday!) afternoon or evening. We felt like our time was well spent on each outing. Plus, we always felt like we could call or email questions at any time day or night. When it came to making offers, Connie walked us through each step and gave us her fair assessment of the value and resale-ability of the property. As she liked to say ‘I’ll never talk you into a house, but I will talk you out of one’ – and she held true to that statement. We valued her commitment to helping us find something we love and playing hardball when necessary. For our closing date, she made it possible for the bank and title company representatives to meet us at the hospital in the middle of day to get all of the paperwork signed. Above and beyond in all aspects, Connie was easy to work with and a true pleasure. We highly recommend her!”

Testimonials:

We first met Caroline in 2004 when she was helping a fellow resident (Dr. Dan Varnieg) buy his first home. Dan was staying with us in the home we had bought while he looked for a home and it was Easter weekend.

Three things struck me about Caroline. First, she was gladly showing Dan houses all day and into the evening. Second, she was always and I mean always on time and prepared. And third, she was happily working 24/7 over an entire Easter weekend. When we asked her about working on Easter, she said: “oh, I always work when other people don’t so I’m used to working holidays.” I have to say I was also envious of Dan who got to see at least 13 houses a day the first few days he was in town. (Our Realtor showed us 6 houses total and never discussed any issues such as busy streets the entire time he worked with us.) At any rate, we watched first hand as Dan bought a cute Tudor in the lower Sugarhouse area. We were impressed.

A few years later (2006), we didn’t hesitate to call Caroline when we started looking for a new home in which to start a family. She showed us the exact same courtesy she showed Dan. We saw homes from Bountiful to Cottonwood Heights, before we settled on a home in Olympus Cove. We couldn’t be happier.

We will use Caroline again. She is our Realtor.

Andre Crouch (MD) and Heather Crouch (DDS)

Caroline was recommended in the welcome package (2003) that we as residents receive when we are matched. Both my parents and I noticed immediately how hard she worked. She explained everything extremely well. I bought my house from her and sold that same house 5 years later using her. She was excellent in both capacities.

What was unique about Caroline was her work ethic and attention to detail. She is basically a workaholic. I never had wait very long to hear back from her. If it meant returning my e-mails at 3 am in order to answer any questions, she would do that. I mentioned on more then one occasion that she was the only person I knew who worked as hard as I did.

Caroline is also unique in her knowledge and attention to detail. When I bought my home, she read through the inspection report carefully. She caught a foundation issue that neither my parents nor me caught. This issue was a $16,000 problem. Had Caroline not caught this, I might have had to spend huge amounts after I bought the house to make it structurally sound. As it was she negotiated with the sellers and their Realtor and the seller repaired the problem to our satisfaction.

Caroline was my first experience using a Realtor. When I finished my Fellowship at Huntsman and moved back to Minnesota, I used a Realtor there in Minnesota. This Realtor was unethical and dishonest. It was then that I realized what a true gem Caroline is as a Realtor. Having a Realtor, which isn’t good, really highlights the good Realtor (Caroline) you have had.

I highly recommend Caroline. Indeed, I recommended her personally to numerous residents and fellows while in Utah and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. You will not be disappointed.

“Donna made the daunting task of buying our first home in just a few days absolutely effortless. She did most of the footwork for us before we even arrived in Salt Lake City and eliminated many homes that were not ideal for us. We were able to find and purchase our dream home on our second day of house-hunting! She pointed out flaws that she noticed in certain homes that we may have overlooked and acted in our best interest. She was not just looking for a quick sale. We will absolutely recommend Donna to any of our friends and will use her when we sell our home in the future.”
