This is me.

Who I am…

The plans I made for my life took a turn the day I signed up to join the United States Coast Guard. The military doctors found a growth on my neck during my physical exam. That growth turned out to be cancerous. That fateful day is when my biggest battle began and my dreams of a career in the military ended. I am here today having overcome it. The challenges in my life have taught me to be a stronger person, a better father, a better partner and successful mortgage loan officer. Now I am surrounded by more blessings than I could have ever imagined.

I’m an avid bow hunter. And I am a big fan of the sport of hunting in general. It’s amazing to me that I am lucky enough to have a vocation that gives me the same sense of satisfaction. When I work to find the best mortgage product for a borrower and then lead them seamlessly through the process every step of the way, I feel like I have hit my target.

What I do…

I love the fast pace of the mortgage business too. I started my mortgage career as a processor and worked my way up. I understand the business inside and out having walked in the shoes of both sales and operations. When I take a loan application, I am already anticipating what the underwriter will likely ask for. This can shave days and even weeks off the time it takes to close loans for my customers. My goal is to help as many people as I can realize their dreams of home ownership with no delays, hassles or unnecessary nonsense.

VA Loans are especially close to my heart. I really enjoy knowing I can help service members realize the home of their dreams. And, I am also working to build a solid financial foundation for my own family. That is why I’ve chosen SN Mortgage company. SNMC offers a dynamic suite of top quality, common sense mortgage solutions to help my customers including – Conventional, Government, Non-Agency, Jumbo, Construction, Investment, Down Payment Assistance Grants and more. SN Mortgage Company’s size and stability offers me the long term security I’m looking for.


Very likely, Working with Colin was smooth and enjoyable. He followed up often and always made every step easy to understand.

Everything was in order for the closing although it did take a mountain of paper work to get there.

Robert S.

I received top notch mortgage services while working with Colin Wauchope and SNMC. Not only were they able to get me closed in two weeks, but they committed to me even after two previous failed attempts with other mortgage companies. SNMC offers excellent rates, superb communication, and most importantly good honest employees. Colin exceeded my lofty expectations of what a senior mortgage professional can provide in terms of delivering results. I anticipate being able to close many future deals working with Colin and SNMC. A+. 5 Stars.

I originally started the process to refi with another company thinking the bigger the name the better the service. However I was wrong. I was referred to Colin at SNMC after a complete disappointment with the other company. From start to finish EVERYTHING ran so smoothly for me with Colin and SNMC. It was a breath of fresh air. Colin and the entire team was a breath of fresh air. Refinancing your home requires you submit lots of paperwork and that process can be overwhelming. But Colin and the team that worked together during this process were professional, knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and timely which reduced all of the pressure and stress I acquired dealing with the other company. When he told me he would do something he did it, whether it was a call back at a certain time, and email response, or question I needed answered. I can’t express my gratitude for the positive experience that I had working with Colin and the SNMC. I true pray that this review reaches each and every person that it is meant to reach. I also pray for the continued success of Colin and the entire team at SNMC. If you are looking to refi I promise that you will not be disappoint in anyway 🙂 5 stars!!!!

The Lender agent was very attentive, and available all the time, I have no complaints.

Colin and John were so easy to work with. When some information came back from USDA, they were reassuring and kind while helping me draft and explanation letter. My husband and I have already referred coworkers to them!

We worked with Colin and he is always so responsive and professional. We have worked with him in the past, for a very short period of time, when we first bought our house. So when he was mentioned to us by our realtor, for refinancing, we were more than happy. He’s very knowledgeable and is always able to answer our questions and is always calm. And just his demeanor and his customer service and the fact that he always gets back to us in time and always follows up and always explains everything in detail really draws us to him. I hope that we can work with Colin in the future for our house needs and for when we buy our next house. Thank you Colin for your outstanding service!

Everyone I worked with was knowledgeable and helpful. Always clearly explaining all details in the home buying process and thoroughly answering all my questions.
