Why we should work together
Michelle joined loanDepot in 2019, with over a decade of mortgage experience. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, she mastered a variety of roles on both the retail and wholesale sides of the lending business. Having worked directly with clients, processors, and underwriters has given Michelle a 360-degree view of the entire mortgage process, allowing her to anticipate and remedy any transactional issues.
Michelle is extremely passionate about assisting others in the largest purchase of their life and uses her knack for finance to do so. Guiding and educating her borrowers in their quest to achieve homeownership is what drives her each day. Seeing their dream become a reality is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding aspects of working in this business.
Michelle is happily married and has two beautiful daughters, Gabbie and Izzie. When she is not originating loans, she enjoys hiking, fitness and yoga. She also volunteers as a track coach and stats keeper for the middle school’s basketball team.

We were lucky enough to find Michelle Harms when we were selling our first home to buy our dream home, she helped us through the entire process and made it a easy as possible, so when we decided that the interest rates had lowered enough to refinance our home we naturally called Michelle, she made it so easy and comfortable I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Honestly, if you need a personal recommendation to use Michelle Harms, feel free to contact me personally, that's how confident I am with her abilities.

Michelle was a phenomenal help navigating a horribly convoluted process. Things came up and she was always on top of everything. Communication was difficult as I began a new job at the same time, but she handled it with grace and respect. Great soul with a big heart.

Michelle was so adaptable and friendly. I felt I was a huge priority to her and felt like I had a friend to rely on. You will not go wrong with Michelle. She is so above and beyond expectations that she truly stands out amongst the rest. This wasn't my first time buying a home. I know from experience how huge an asset it is, having someone as dillagent as Michelle on your side.

So happy to have done this process with Michelle, she took care of business! We were a difficult loan profile with history of issues and self employed and she still made it happen and the loan we ended up with fit our needs perfectly.
