Meet Linda

I’m an experienced and well-rounded mortgage professional who has had the fortune of operating at various vantage points of our industry over a long decorated career.  My absolute passion is seeking out like-minded mortgage professionals and bringing them to a common company vision.  Although my goal is most commonly maintaining the consistent quality loan production secondary markets desire, it’s the people that drive me to be better daily.  I’ve had the pleasure of watching many careers flourish under my direction, and I’d like to see many more as our industry continues to flourish.

“You will get all you want in life if you help enough people get what they want.”

Call me today at (661) 993-7644 for a free quote and consultation.  My team and I are waiting to handle all your financing needs.
