About Highlands Residential Mortgage

Your Family. Your Future. Our Focus.

Highlands Residential Mortgage was created in 2010 in the midst of uncertainty and rapid change in the mortgage industry. A group of like-minded seasoned veterans came together to create a company with an employee-focused culture. A culture that values its members both personally and professionally and a company built on the idea that the customer comes first! We believe Highlands Residential Mortgage is such a place. Our Mission to value people drives everything we do.

My Story

Thank you for your interest in financing your home with me and Highlands Residential Mortgage. I am a Market Leader and Branch Manager with Highlands Residential Mortgage and an accomplished mortgage lender with more than 37 years of lending and public accounting experience. During my career I have originated more than half a billion dollars in mortgages. My experience includes regular guest appearances on WUSA-Channel 9 TV News as an authority on the state of residential financing, interest rates, and the local economy. I am the Chairperson of the Montgomery County Executive’s Advisory Committee on Consumer Protection, and the immediate past president of the Promenade Towers Mutual Housing Corporation.  I have served on the Advisory Board of a local community bank and am a volunteer instructor for Montgomery County’s First Time Homebuyer’s Class.  When I am not lending, I do extensive volunteer work within the community and am married and the proud father of 2 adult children. Thank you for putting your trust in me, Dan Dan YOUR Mortgage Man.
