These are home buyer success stories, just a few of the thousands of people I’ve helped through the mortgage loan process.


New Home in the U.S.

A Brazilian man, working in tech in the U.S., whose funds for the down payment were held overseas and who had limited U.S. credit, came to me for a loan to purchase a condominium. As a foreign national temporarily working here but not a U.S. citizen, he had only a few domestic accounts listed on [...]


Rental Renovation

I had an investor come to me with a project that was in progress. He had started to do a renovation on a rental property, a condominium, but unforeseen costs arose, and he had run out of funds. He had a fair amount of equity in the property, and so, I was able to get [...]


Yard for the Dog

An honorably-discharged U.S. Marine and war veteran, currently working in law enforcement, living in Pleasant Hill, was looking to purchase a new property and relocate closer to his work in Oakland.

They also hoped to build out a large deck in the backyard for barbecues. With my extensive network of real estate industry colleagues, I was able to help the homeowner procure [...]


Room to Play

A married couple living in an apartment in the East Bay were looking to purchase their first home. They wanted to stay in the Bay Area, desired a family-friendly neighborhood, and a home with a big backyard where their 3-year-old daughter could have room to play.


Balloon Payment Threat

A retail store owner who is also a homeowner in Kensington, came to me looking to refinance. His home loan had a balloon payment that was coming due. The stakes were high: he needed to refinance soon or he could potentially lose his home. The current lender was poised to repossess. His tax returns did [...]
