About Steven

With over 20 years of experience, I offer concierge mortgage guidance to streamline homebuying for clients and real estate agents across the U.S. As SVP of Mortgage Lending at CrossCountry Mortgage, I lead a team of loan experts to provide great rates and superior customer service to guide you through the “Mortgage MAIZE.” We’re the official mortgage partner of The Agency real estate brokerage. Through a thorough, practical, and proactive approach to home financing, I’ll meticulously shepherd your custom-tailored loan to a successful conclusion – helping meet your needs now and for the long run.

My approach to homebuying has shown to be successful time and time again by putting my additional real estate expertise and competitive edge to work for you. A Yale Law graduate, former real estate attorney, and All-American basketball player at Wesleyan University, I’ve been recognized by L.A. Magazine’s 2022 Mortgage All-Star award and Mortgage Executive Magazine’s Top 1% of Mortgage Originators in America list each of the last 10 years. I’ve been featured on CBS Evening News, L.A. Times, Washington Post, and as a guest real estate lecturer at the University of Southern California Law School.

Beyond the awards and features list, I’m most proud of the numerous repeat customer and personal referrals who’ve proven my expertise firsthand. Whether you’re buying your first home, a luxury dream home, or an investment property, I look forward to providing you with service that’s second to none.

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.
