Welcome! I am a licensed mortgage loan originator with NFM and pride myself on my attention to detail and mastering my craft as a mortgage specialist.
I was born and raised in Maryland and received a degree in Finance from Towson University. I currently reside in Baltimore City and spend my free time working out, spending time with family and friends, and traveling any chance I get.
I treat every loan with the utmost respect and attention that it deserves and guide my borrower’s through every step of the mortgage process. I receive 90% of my business from past clients and referrals of past clients, and I concentrate on being “THE” go to guy when it comes to handling the financing for your home. I always handle every loan personally so my clients will not be contacted by five different people to inform them of the status of their loan! I promise every client of mine has finished their experience knowing five times as much as when they started. I look forward to staying on top of this ever changing industry and earning the trust of every client I work with!

"Lee was awesome! He gave me every detail and scenerio regarding the options of my loan. He took the time to answer all my questions and even gave me information on things I may have not known to ask. He was always very kind, professional, and responsive to emails, phone calls etc. Buying a home can be very tedious and overwhelming and Lee helped simplify and keep things running smoothly. And now I'm in my dream home! Thanks Lee!!!!"

"My experience with Thurman L. Killen (Lee) and NFM has been phenomenal. I had previously dealt with 2 lenders. One lender was unprofessional and the second lender, after a couple of weeks and much pain and agony, approved me for a ridiculously low amount. I was referred to Lee who, within hours, approved me for an amount that I could work with. Thanks to Lee's professionalism, diligence, experience, thoughtfulness (he threw in a credit to help with closing), I am now a proud home owner. "

"Thurman L Killen was very professional. He answered all my questions promptly during the refinancing process, and explained clearly all my options. There were occasions when I was having some printer issues and could not send some documents. During those times, Mr Thurman would come out to pick up the paperwork. I always got the impression that he had my best interest at hand. He made the whole process seamless. I would definitely recommend his services."
