I have been a lead home mortgage originator in Hawaii for the past 18 years. I graduated with a BA degree in Film/Television production from Columbia College in Los Angeles. I spent 12 years working with Universal Studios, Propaganda Films and various other production companies in Los Angeles before opening my own post production company, US 2 Editorial, in 1993.
During my career I worked on many high-profile projects including: Feature Films: E.T., Back to the Future, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and The Breakfast Club Music Videos: Michael Jackson, Madonna, Sade, Barbara Streisand and Bon Jovi -Commercials: Pepsi, Nike, Ford Motors, Reebok, Toyota, Coke and Apple Computers
In 1999, I relocated to Hawaii to pursue a better quality of life. I had spent almost 20 years in an extremely fast-paced business, and it was time to take count of what was important to me for the next 20 plus years, and Hawaii was the answer.
I was hired as a home mortgage consultant with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in July 2001. In my first year in the business, I was ranked one of the top ten originators in the state. In 2005, I moved into the Private Banking division, where in addition to originating, I was trained as a Level 1 Underwriter. This additional industry skill has propelled me to consistently rank in the top 10 percent, nationwide from 2005 to 2013, for sales volume funding and customer service loyalty.
I have more than 18 years in the business and has experience with all loan types, including conventional, government and commercial programs. During my career, I have originated over $300 million in transactions for first-time home buyers as well as high-profile real estate investors. My goal is to have satisfied customers for life, and I will do everything possible to ensure my clients are provided with a high level of service throughout their transaction. If I do a great job for them, they will refer their friends and family, which is the highest compliment I can ever receive.
