I got into the financial services industry 1987. Started with my Insurance License and then in 1991 my Securities licensee and CFL license to do mortgage lending. I saw a big need to educate people on simple money management.
Started doing 100% mortgage lending in 2002 and gave up my Insurance and Securities Licenses in 2007.
I was born in the Netherlands. My family came to the United States to give my brother, sister and myself more opportunities and we ended up growing up in Indiana. I went to High School, and graduated, in Syracuse Indiana. The company I went to work for sent 18 of us to Notre Dame University to take a Business Management course. It was a great course but had to give up the class because the company transferred me to manage their CA. operation. When I came to CA. I took a Business Law and Accounting class at our local Community College.
I’ve been Married for 33 years and have two beautiful daughters and a great grandson who live, with their families in IL. CO. and now IA. My favorite pastimes are playing my guitars and listening to music, playing golf when I have time, traveling ,visiting family and friends and following the Stock Market.
We live now in Riverside, CA.
