About Brian

My 25-year career has been equally footed in both retail and wholesale mortgage lending. From working as a loan officer to serving as vice president of production and sales, I’ve overseen underwriters, an operation staff, and loan originators with one firm mission: getting clients the right loan for their dreams.

The home financing industry has undergone a lot of recent changes and no doubt will continue to evolve. That’s why my knowledge and experience are important for solving situations old and new. I’ll help you navigate lending regulations and implement financing resolutions that align with your overall goals. Whether you’re looking to buy a new home or refinance your current one, I can ensure a smooth and easy process from start to finish.

My consideration for you doesn’t end after finding a mortgage. I’m dedicated to offering top-notch service by keeping communication lines open 24/7 – before, during, and after your transaction. My wife and I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California and love our community, and I can’t wait to help you make it your own.

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.
