I began my career in real estate in 1986 starting as a residential appraiser in San Jose. After studying real estate finance and business management at DeAnza College, I started my mortgage lending career. Starting out as a mortgage broker, I soon became a wholesale mortgage lender working for such notable banks and mortgage bankers as Great Pacific Bank, Imperial Credit Industries and First National Mortgage.
With over $1.2 billion in loan fundings — spanning a 26-year residential and commercial mortgage lending career — I continue to develop new strategies and markets to fund large scale, multi-family and commercial real estate ventures, interests and construction developments as well as start-up financing.
In 2014 SVS closed in excess of $67.3 million in commercial, development and investment real estate financings. Fundings for 2013 were over $25 million. SVS is poised to capitalize on unique gaps that exist in the marketplace for obtaining highly specialized commercial and development financing for commercial and investment real estate projects.
One of our specialties is working to provide fix and flip property developers customized fix and flip or fix and hold financing. I have personally analyzed tens of millions of dollars in fix and flip project financing requests.
I grew up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, attended Los Gatos High School and reside in Los Gatos with my three children, Jack, Sam and Grace. For fun, I enjoy auto racing, open track events with the Nor-Cal Shelby Club as well as being an avid dirt bike rider.
