MISSION
Our mission is to serve our customers with honesty, integrity, and competence while taking the mystery and anxiety our of home financing. With each of our loan officers bringing 20+ years of lending experience to the transaction, we take the time to understand your personal financial circumstances and craft a mortgage that provides not only the lowest interest rates, but the lowest closing costs and down payment for YOU. Sometimes, circumstances are "vanilla" and sometimes it takes a more creative approach to bring borrowers and lenders together with a mutually agreeable solution. We have the expertise to assist borrowers in all types of situations while maintaining the integrity you deserve. We educate and guide you from the time you start thinking of purchasing a home through each step until you're holding the keys in your hand. We want to help you realize the dream of homeownership initially and be there for you as your housing journey evolves over time. 
HISTORY
Solutions Home Mortgage, Inc. was started by two friends and business associates, Mark DeCarlo and Michelle Golata, who desired to offer real solutions to all borrowers with honesty, which was sadly lacking in the industry at the time. We began in 2002 in a small office on Lake Street in the Village of Hamburg as as time went on, we outgrew two other office spaces and navigated the dark waters of the nationwide "mortgage meltdown" of 2007/08. We not only survived but thrived in its wake because of the dedication and virtue of our team. Now we are located in a newly renovated office in the heart of the Village on Main Street in Hamburg and employ several loan officers and support staff.

In her spare time she enjoys reading, cooking, crafting, gardening, photography, and exploring the outdoors with her dog.
