About Thomas

I started in the mortgage industry after several years as a construction project manager. I became interested after my wife became a real estate agent and we bought our first home, which is now our investment property. I’m here to develop relationships with families and individuals who want to increase their overall wealth through real estate.

My work in construction helped me develop the customer service skills I bring to my work as a loan originator. I enjoy using my knowledge as a conduit to connect with people and help them improve their financial and life situation. When you work with me, you’ll find I love to be a cheerleader for others. I will listen and take interest in your goals, needs, and personal achievements. I’ll communicate with you throughout the process to provide a pleasant experience.

I’m a tenacious and hard worker, priding myself on my work ethic. I find it is very important to develop trust. I want you to feel confident that my attention to detail and ability to meet challenges will carry your loan through to closing. I offer a wide range of mortgage programs, from conventional and jumbo to FHA and VA. Together, we’ll find the one that meets your individual needs.

I grew up in Sonoma County and attended Rancho Cotate High School. I studied music and business at Sonoma State University, College of Marin, and Santa Rosa Junior College. I like to golf, play the guitar, and spend time with my wife and kids.

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.
