Gwenn TanvasSales Manager NMLS NMLS 274839
I have a very simple motto . . . Help People, Make New Friends, and Have Fun. People do business with people they trust, and you can trust that I will provide you with the individual care you deserve.
I am truly passionate about our profession, and the result is that nearly 100% of my business is by referral from satisfied clients, trusted financial advisors and the most experienced realtors in the Greater Fox Valley Area. And you can rest assured that you are entrusting your home financing with those who rank amongst the most highly qualified and ethical in the lending industry.
You feel confident as you make choices about the many options available for your financing strategy. With many years and a wide range of experience in the mortgage industry, our dedicated team stands ready to assist each and every step of the way.
While I work with a diverse group of borrowers. First-Time homebuyers, Self-Employed buyers, Executive Buyers, Investors, and Commercial Property Investors. Although all have specific criteria, and are quite individual in their mortgage planning and financial needs, one group is very near and dear to my heart! I really love helping people recover from a bad credit experience. There is so much reward guiding people back on their feet. Our business is relational and when I see and feel the excitement of accomplishment at the closing table, I know I am in the right business.
Now that we have that out of the way, I am going to let my hair down a bit and tell you a little about me. I am a Native Northern Californian gal who was transplanted to Northeast Wisconsin. I love the rural life style and the convenience of an airport 35 miles away (comes in handy when I need my California fix)! We have a small farmett in NE Wisconsin where I have three faiting goats - Emmie, Lucy and Daisy. No kids, just goats! Oh yes and many barn kittys - Here a baby from my olde gal "Charlie's" last batch - I called them the three stooges - and this is Moe!
Unfortunatly I am not able to have kids so I recently created a local non-profit youth organization. I have had this on my mind for several years and last November . . . my child was born - The Tri-County Community Youth Project. The Project's Mission To provide a positive and supportive opportunity to local youths so they may grow to be successful role models and contribute positively to their community today, and into the future.
I look forward to Dancing, Singing and Playing in the Rain.
Areas of Expertise
My Expertise is Planning and more specifically Mortgage Planning. This fits perfectly with my personality as I have alway been a forward thinker! I look at Mortgage Planning as a way of life - Our business is NOT transactional, rather relational. I specialize in Government loans such as FHA, Federal VA, Rural USDA loans, WHEDA, One Close Construction, and loans to meet the special requirements of executives and self-employed borrowers.
I am a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS®). You can be assured that as a mortgage professional with CMPS, I have has met rigorous peer-developed and reviewed standards endorsed by a national professional body. Recognized for its preeminence within the industry, the CMPS curriculum represents the core knowledge expected of residential mortgage advisors, regardless of the diversity of specializations within the industry.
The CMPS curriculum incorporates the five essential skill sets related to integrating a client's mortgage, debt and home equity strategy into their overall financial plan:
- Financial Market and Interest Rate Analysis
- Cash Flow & Debt Analysis
- Real Estate Equity Management
- Real Estate Investment Planning
- Mortgage & Real Estate Taxation Concepts
I look forward to discussing this information with you and answer any questions you may have.
Talk On The Street
***** Gwenn Tanvas and AMEC really went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with the home buying process. Gwenn was available at all hours of the day or night and answered all of our questions with professional perfection. I highly recommend AMEC and specifically Gwenn Tanvas to help you with your home buying needs! Thank you! G Moody
***** Gwenn has always gone above & beyond to treat me like a member of her family! - Any questions or concerns I have ever had, have been consistently & grasciously answered in a very timely manner; Gwenn truly means it when she says that she is only a phone call away. I have never felt as though I was bothering or inconveniencing her, she has routinely made herself readily available from day one of inquiring about applying to a mortgage loan, to present day which is a year+ of owning my home. As a first time home buyer I had very little knowledge of the home buying process, as well as all the various financial details associated with purchasing a home. I can not put into words how truly fortunate & grateful I am to have had Gwenn by my side through the whole experience to confidently guide me through it all! I would recommend Gwenn to anyone looking to purchase a home based soley on her warm personality, vast knowledge, & genuine interest in providing you with the best service possible!! I would never go through anyone else after having the pleasure of working with Gwenn & the rest of the fantastic AMEC team! Alicia McQuillan - Oshkosh, WI
***** As a first time home buyer, I really didn't know what I was getting myself into. Gwenn was there every step of the way to answer questions whether it was via email, text or a call. I had a ton of questions and reached out to her a lot and she always got back to me as soon as she could with the answers. Gwenn is a fun person and made my life a heck of a lot easier during this process! Tyler Otto Green Bay, WI
*****Gwenn got us the financing we didn't even know it was possible.
Tim Chier - Neshkoro, WI
She did extra work to get exactly the loan we needed to fit our situation. She got us a quick closing so we could get in our new home before winter. the company has been great with their after service. They have sent us notifications regarding taxes twice already even though it's paperwork we got in the pile of papers at closing oh, we didn't have to dig for it or wonder what we needed to do
She's Awesome *****
Gwenn was amazing! :) *****
I initially was going to buy my home through my local credit union. Several weeks had went but with little headway in the loan process. My reality broker suggested I try using Gwenn instead. My closing date was only 3 weeks away and was not sure if I could make the switch and still close in time. Gwenn offered me several options of financing my home purchase. And I decided on using my VA loan as that was my best option. She actually got more done in 2 days then my credit union did in over 3 weeks. I was actually approved and set to close in two weeks. She managed to find a lender with a interest rate over 1/2 percentage point below the average 30 year rate. She saved me thousands over the life of my loan. I was able to do almost all my transactions via an app she uses and did it using my cell phone. She was extremely responsive and never had to wait more then a few minutes for her to respond if I texted or e-mailed her. She made the loan process go very smoothly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking to get a mortgage loan. And I will not hesitate to use her in the future if I need another loan. On a scale of 1-10. 10 being the best. Gwenn gets a 20!!!!
She was always available to answer our questions and made the entire process easy...
gwenn is verry good at what she does!
Good Morning Gwenn - *****
Words can't express our gratitude for your assistance in the purchase of our new home. You were there everyday to assist in reassuring me that it would actually be possible, and it was! I really don't think it would have been as easy as it was without your expertise. Not only for the necessary paperwork and gathering of information - but most noticeably for the personal side, calming me and walking me thru the entire process. I'm going to miss not having a reason now to call and check in with you to see what I should be working on next as it is all done.
I clipped the ad with your photo on and taped it to my refrigerator almost two years ago and told Tim, "I like her, she will be able to help us, I can just see it".
Thank you Gwenn.
Most sincerely, Wendy and Tim Morey
"I originally financed all of my rental properties with the local bank, but they could not get me the rate and terms you were able to provide. Thanks to you, I am now set for 30 years. I was amazed at the fixed rate you able to get me for the five rental properties.
J Morgan - Adventures Properties *****
"It meant a lot to us that you kept us informed every step of the way. You made our first-time buying experience a joy to remember. Thank you."
Ken & Lisa - Neenah *****
"You are the first person who explained the complicated financial matters in terms the average person could understand. We felt very comfortable in your capable hands. Thanks!"
Jess & Kim - Menasha *****
"We are so happy we found you! You made the extra effort to review programs for the purchase of our first home and as the result saved us over $8,000 in loan costs over the local bank. Not only did you save us lots of money, you also made us feel at ease every step of the way. Thanks again!"
