About Rodrigo

In over 15 years in the mortgage industry, I’ve helped more than 4,500 families achieve the best home financing for their specific goals. If you’re surprised to hear home loans aren’t one-size-fits-all, you’ve come to the right person for your mortgage.

I learned early in my career to listen to my clients. Before I recommend a home loan, I want to know about you. I need to understand your needs and your situation, then I can use my knowledge and experience to offer you the mortgage that’s right for you and your family.

I have been recognized many times as a top loan originator, both nationally and locally. Most recently I was named to the Scotsman Guide 2021 Top Originators list, a prestigious national honor. However, awards mean something more to me: they are proof I’m doing the right thing for the families who trust me with one of the most important decisions they’ll ever make.

If you want 24-hour dedication, attention to detail, a smooth loan process, and a commitment to closing your loan on time, please contact me. I’d like to do for you what I do best: make your homeownership dreams a reality.
