Zillow Five Star Lender


Tricia Houston


In today’s marketplace, it is important to choose a mortgage broker who brings extensive experience to the table and is also an effective communicator. 

Tricia Houston is a Colorado native and has been a loan originator in the mortgage industry since 1999.

People often tell me they LOVE my company name and how did I come up with it? My answer is simple, Maven is a Yiddish word meaning “expert”. When I started my company in 2006, I had already been in the mortgage business for 10 years working for several major banks when I became frustrated at the lack of professionalization that was offered to customers during what most would consider the biggest purchase of all time. I knew I could do better for my clients by offering them a true hands on approach to the lending process.

Over the past 20 years, I have guided hundreds of families through the ever-complicated mortgage process and have taken great pride to make sure that all my clients thoroughly understand the process – which can be daunting, very personal and highly complicated. I strive to fully educate each client about each phase and detail of the process and to make the transaction feel as comfortable as possible. My clients, and importantly, my repeat clients, know that I will spend the required time to achieve success. As a result, my service stands out in an industry that is full of people who simply want to drive to the finish line, make the sale and care only about their commission.
