What is your role at Sharp Loan and how long have you been with the company?
I’m a Loan Officer and I assist homeowners and future homeowners with their real estate financial needs. I’ve been with the company since the beginning.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I truly enjoy the end result. Oftentimes my clients are living paycheck to paycheck, and I’m able to create a plan to save them hundreds of dollars a month. And the feeling of helping my client is buying their first home is priceless! This is what I enjoy the most.
Can you share a memorable experience or story that happened while working?
I’ve worked on enough loans to have tons of memorable experiences, but here’s one of the most recent: I had a client that was renting in LA and was denied many times by other companies for a purchase loan due to her type of income. She and her family were getting evicted, and time was of the essence. I was able to get her approved for a home loan, and even found her dream home. We closed escrow and to this day, I get calls from her telling me how appreciative she is. She has even referred me to several of her friends and family members. Going the extra mile pays off in the end.
What do you like to do in your free time when you aren’t helping clients realize their home ownership dreams?
I go to the gym, and I spend a lot of time with my family, my girlfriend, and my English bulldog Nala. I also love to travel and eat great food!
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take three items with you, what would they be?
My laptop, earphones, and some water. I have to make sure I’m still closing deals!
What’s an item on your bucket list that you can’t wait to cross off?
Shark cage diving!
What movie can you rewatch over and over again?
That’s tough, but probably The Godfather.
What is one important skill that every person should have?
Patience. “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
