Gaston Sanchez is a Vice President of Mortgage Lending for Guaranteed Rate, one of the largest mortgage lenders in the country, working from the Downtown Santa Barbara office. Prior to joining Guaranteed Rate, Gaston was a Private Client Banker for JPMorgan Chase where he held the Series 6 and Series 63 Investment Licenses, a Life Insurance License, and was registered with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System for over 4 years.
In that position Gaston managed the banking relationships of high net worth clients focusing on sophisticated investment and lending solutions while providing truly dedicated service with a high attention to detail. Moving to Guaranteed Rate allowed Gaston to narrow his focus and engage his love of numbers further by helping guide clients through the biggest financial decision of their lives. Being mentored by Senior Vice President at Guaranteed Rate and industry veteran, Jaime Barton, Gaston will have indispensable access to years of knowledge and expertise.
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Gaston’s family originally comes from Argentina with Italian heritage. This mix of cultures allows him to easily relate to clients from any and all backgrounds. Gaston is a student of life and constantly searches to expand his knowledge and learn something new each day. Gaston’s desire to learn makes the ever changing world of mortgage lending a great place for him to thrive. Currently a Spanish speaker, his next challenge will be to learn Italian.
When Gaston is not reading about new mortgage laws and regulations, he can be found reading cook books or in the kitchen experimenting with classic dishes and attempting new culinary experiences. Living in Santa Barbara instilled a deep love for the ocean and the mountains that surround the beautiful place he calls home. Gaston’s perfect weekend would start at the beach with friends and family and end with a tri-tip sandwich and cold beer at Cold Spring Tavern.
From Gaston’s time as a bartender to his career as a banker, taking care of his clients has always been his top priority. Gaston’s strong desire to help others and dedication to his clients is seen by how he takes the time to truly understand them and their situations. This makes Gaston a genuine and trusted person to have by your side as you fulfill your dream of becoming a home owner or as you grow your real estate portfolio.
