1. YOU!:  Call me cliche, but I know my clients are the reason I am in business and the reason I continue to strive for improvement.1happy_thanksgiving

2. Brian Barre: Brian has been my official  business partner for over a year now and I can’t imagine working with anyone else in this capacity. For those of you who don’t know Brian, he is the broker of record and owner of our parent company, Speciality Home Loans. Essentially Brian is in charge of the both operations aspect to our business and our lending relationships.

3. Ben Bernanke and the FED: I think Bernanke and the FED have been brilliant. They are the reason we have  the low fixed rates and without their policies I think the housing market and economy would be in alot worse shape than it is.

4. First California Mortgage: My secret weapon!  Most lenders offer decent speed and service or low, low rates, but not both. Our partnership with 1st Cal has been a true blessing as they are the finest wholesale lender I have ever worked with.

5. Heather Schuster: Heather has been a long time friend of mine and started with me 1 month ago as a transaction coordinator. She is both talented and brilliant and I am thrilled to have her on board.
