I’ve been in the industry for 30+ years and started doing this lovely job during the subprime and Alternative lending periods. That said, I’m very creative in putting deals together and usually can come up with a solution for any scenario. What made me priceless to any company was that I spoke fluent Spanish. I never said No to any deal because I cared about everyone who wanted to be a homeowner, especially the Hispanic Community. I’m a member of many Hispanic networking groups, including NAHREP, HBN, and NWHCC. I’m also part of several other networking groups, such as the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce and Stroll Park Ridge Magazine. I also love spending time with my family (wife Joann, kids – Angelina, Joshua, and Brianna), attending church, and playing golf when I’m not working or with my family. I’m licensed in multiple states: IL, MO, and IN.
