Shelter Mortgage Company, LLC

Karla-Mae E. Goodman relocated to Brevard County in the summer of 2000 from Barbados to pursue a higher education. She graduated in 2004 with a master’s in business administration and concentration in human resources. She has taken the lessons learned in the classroom and translated them into professional relationships that have served her well in her career since 2003.

As a well-rounded real estate professional, Karla-Mae has worked for a production home builder as a closings and contract administrator and a local land developer, assisting with the daily operation of their general brokerage entity and most recently establishing and managing their welcome center. “I will never forget the day my dad asked me what my passion was, and without missing a beat I responded ‘closing homes.’ That was years ago, and it still rings true today. The fascination of watching sticks and bricks come together to build someone’s dream just never gets old.”

Over the past 12 years, Karla-Mae has built many lasting relationships in the community, specifically in the real estate industry. Her sunny disposition is contagious. Through the many ups and downs of the industry, she has remained positive and still enjoys what she does – helping people realize their dream of home ownership.

Today, she serves as the support manager for hometown lender Shelter Mortgage Company, putting her extensive skills in operations to work to ensure a smooth transaction for those who entrust their financing with the Shelter team. “With ever-changing rules and regulations—like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures change (i.e. the “Know Before You Owe” rule) coming October 3 —  we want to make sure our clients, whether they are builders, realtors or borrowers, are confident that we will deliver for them.”

Karla-Mae holds a NAMP® Certified Master Loan Processor certification and is currently pursuing her Mortgage Loan Originator license.
