- My parents bought their first home when I was 8 years old. I remember my parents driving by the house every night during escrow. I would ask my father when we would be able to move into our new house. He said, “We need to wait until escrow closes.” After each drive-by, I asked again, and got the same answer. I started to get annoyed. “Who is this escrow character? Why can’t escrow hurry up so we can move into our house?” I didn't know that my job would be all about making “escrow hurry up” later in life. It’s fun.
- I started working in the mortgage industry in 2001 as a wholesale mortgage banker. During that time, I trained hundreds of Bay Area mortgage professionals to underwrite and package their loans for sale to banks. When the market crashed, I became a loan originator and focused on FHA loans to keep the housing market moving. As the market shifts, so does my focus. I am always looking for new products to provide solutions to my clients and new ways to speed up the closing process.
- I understand that buying your first home can be a very stressful endeavor, so I do my best to keep the process as understandable and efficient as possible. I enjoy meeting my clients in person, so I attend all of my purchase signing appointments. I look forward to meeting you soon.
