Sarah Cox, Membership Chair


Mortgage professional, Sarah Hernandez-Cox brings to her clients and business partners 16+ years of mortgage experience in the Dallas-Ft. Worth market. Sarah understands her client’s not only need to get the greatest rates possible, but to also work with a mortgage specialist who helps make the process as convenient and straightforward as possible. Your home may be your largest investment, and Sarah strives to go the extra mile for every customer – from those buying their first home, to those refinancing their current mortgage. To ensure their future is secure, she passionately pursues the right mortgage program that meets your financial situation and goals. After moving to the DFW area in 1999 from Tucson, Arizona, the purchase of her family’s home sparked a genuine interest to ensure all homebuyers receive the best possible stress-free experience with the home loan process.
