Who We Are
Founder & Division Sales Manager
I'm the founder and division manager of Lightning Home Loans. For me, mortgage lending is a passion. It involves building relationships, solving problems, providing financing advice and so much more. With over 15 years of experience in the service industry, I open the line of communication between clients, customers and businesses to educate and to provide the best service possible, for them. After launching my mortgage career in 2012, I have been building and growing every year since and have developed a solution based approach to secure loans that suit both my clients’ budget and goals. I live in Fenton, MI with my best friend and wife of 10+ years, Danielle. In the fall of 2020, we welcomed our son, Brooks, into the world. In my spare time I love boating, traveling, spending time with family and playing catch with all the 3 of my dogs.
Co-Founder and Loan Coordinator
My name is Danielle McAuliffe and I am a loan processor and assistant here at Lightning Home Loans. I’m a new mom, to our precious little boy Brooks. I love my family and love what I do.
I’ve been in the mortgage business for little over 5 years now. I enjoy helping people get their dream homes. With our experience and amazing team, I’m confident we can help you get into the best mortgage available.
Office Manager and Executive Assistant
I joined Lightning Home Loans in 2020, and I have learned the many aspects of the mortgage industry from the ground up, since joining the team. I serve as the right hand for Adam McAuliffe and my responsibilities encompass three key roles: administrative/office manager, executive assistant and marketing director. I was drawn to this position because I enjoy all of the aspects of each of these three roles and the diversity the position offers. I truly enjoy planning, developing, implementing, and organizing new systems and processes and I received my Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Michigan. Rest assured, that I am here to assist you with all of your purchase and refinancing needs. In my spare time, I enjoy boating, crafting and being with my family and friends.
Being a loan officer allows me to help my clients make a large financial decision. I assure you that I will make the process go as smoothly as possible, and make it a fun and enjoyable experience! I love building relationships that last a lifetime, and helping my clients with purchasing their dream home, refinancing their home, and so much more! In my free time, I love to travel and spend time with my family and friends.
I love making connections and helping people. I pride myself on providing professional and honest advice with a high level of customer service. Whether you are purchasing a home or looking to re-finance an existing mortgage, I will find the most suitable mortgage product to meet your needs. As an honest, hardworking loan officer at Lightning Home Loans, I will strive to exceed expectations and make your home purchase/refinance an enjoyable experience. I look forward to helping you out.
I have specialized in sales and customer service for over 10 years and received my bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University. My passion is to go above and beyond and to serve my customers with integrity and compassion. As a loan officer I help borrowers achieve financial success regardless of their situation and circumstance. I will work with my customers for as long as it takes, until we get them into the home of their dreams. I live in Goodrich with my wife and kids where I also help to manage my family’s commercial hop farm business.

For the last 8 years, I have ran a Farmers Insurance Agency, in Naperville, IL. I attended Prairie State College, in Chicago Heights, IL prior to serving three years in the army with the 25th Infantry Division and three years in the Illinois National Guard.

Loan Officer's Assistant
Hello I’m Megan! I am brand new to the mortgage world, but I am excited to be a part of the Lightning Home Loans team. My husband and I and our 3 dogs and 4 cats live in Flushing at our dream home with lots of land and views for miles. We lived in Colorado for 3 years and gained a lot from the experience but overall wanted to be back in Michigan to be around our families and get away from the city life. I graduated from Northwood University with a bachelors in Healthcare Administration. I also work as the Office Manager at a holistic healing center, Blue Lotus, in Flint Michigan. My husband and I both have a great passion for holistic health, and we enjoy sharing the knowledge we gain from that with our friends and family. I feel honored to be a part of this team and I am looking forward to my future here!
My name is Ben Miller and I am the communications coordinator here at Lightning Home Loans. Being a graduate of Grand Blanc High School, class of 2020, I am fairly new to the home loans industry, starting January 2021. Although I’m a newer member to the team, I constantly am looking for ways to help and become an asset that is needed around the workplace. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone, and remember to reach out if there's anyone who could benefit from our services!
