About me

Steve has extensive experience in the mortgage industry.  For 34 years he has been a Loan Originator, Branch Manager and Regional Sales Manager.  Along with Steve’s mortgage experience, he is currently Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Greeley Chamber of Commerce, Co-Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce Education Committee and on the St. Mary Finance Council Board.
Steve is responsible for helping our Colorado customers and business partners find the right loan and at the right terms. Like all First Cal Loan Executives, he is dedicated to finding the very best loan for our borrowers--and ensuring they receive personalized, attentive service in the process.

On What He Finds Rewarding
“What is most rewarding to me is providing an outstanding level of service to my clients so their refinance or purchase goes smoothly.  I enjoy the appreciation my team and I receive after the loan process is complete.”

On working at First Cal
“What’s impressive about First Cal is their level of professionalism and service, as well as the efficiency of the entire staff.  First Cal allows me to provide programs, technology and systems that are industry leading.”

On Helping Clients Be Successful
“I help a client’s success by advising them of all the options available during the loan process and helping them choose the program best suited for their current and future needs.  After closing, I keep in touch with them by keeping them updated on current mortgage rates, new programs and market trends.”

What Has Inspired Him
“I have always been a believer in following the ‘Golden Rule’.”

On His Priorities
“My highest priority is 100% customer satisfaction.”

On His Interests
