Not your Typical Mortgage Broker

Steve is not your typical “Mortgage Broker.” He is a Mortgage and Financial Consultant—an expert in real estate financing and a trusted advisor who does much more than find you a mortgage with the lowest rate.  

Known for his warmth, insight and integrity, he is passionate about leveraging your mortgage as a valuable investment tool to create wealth. According to Steve’s philosophy, small decisions can make big differences over time. Structured wisely, your house is a financial vehicle, and a mortgage can be a tool to create financial freedom. The right mortgage can help you leverage the equity in your home to create long-term wealth.

 

Over his 28-year career, Steve has supported hundreds of clients in gaining access to financing through various types of loans and financial instruments. He has held a California Real Estate Brokers License since 1986 and over the years has bought and sold dozens of properties of all kinds. Steve currently owns his own mortgage company.

 

Education

Steve holds a B.S. in Business and Information Systems, is a graduate of The Executive Program in Management from UCLA’s Anderson School of Business and earned an M.A. in Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.

Steve has completed 40 hours of training in family law mediation and provides pro bono mediation services to low income families seeking peaceful alternatives to traditional divorce. 

This educational background allows Steve to connect with people at a deep level of understanding, support them through their process without judgment and gain clarity on how to be of the greatest service to each of his clients.

 

Passions

Steve currently resides in Southern California with his beloved wife Sherry, their dog Buddy, and mouser Kira. 

 

Steve and his wife Sherry have been Volunteers at the Freedom to Choose Workshop since 2006 held at the Valley State Prison for Women in Chowchilla, CA. Freedom to Choose is an ongoing service project where graduate volunteers spend time with the inmates in an experiential workshop format teaching them communication skills.The name of the workshop, “Freedom to Choose,” is derived from the work of Viktor Frankl, who was a psychologist interred in a concentration camp in World War II. It was created for people serving life sentences in prison, with the intention of supporting them in living more meaningful lives, whether or not they ever parole.

 

“Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is the power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

- Viktor Frankl
