I am the father of four children and an active community member of the city of Corona, past President of the Dad’s Club at Lincoln Alternative Elementary School from 2006-2013, a current PTA member at both El Cerrito Middle School and active Home Garden’s Elementary School as a volunteer parent in my children's classroom. I consider myself a resource in my community.

I am a graduate of California State University Long Beach with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration/Finance. I have been a residential mortgage lending executive at various companies since 1990, I became a licensed real estate agent/broker in 1994 and incorporated HLS Group, Inc in January 2008; as a residential lending executive with broad based expertise in all aspects of credit, lending, underwriting and negotiation in the origination and delivery of residential loans serving as a licensed Real Estate Broker, certified REO listing agent, certified Short Sale Specialist, and I am an NMLS compliant loan originator focusing on southern California and specializing in the Inland Empire.

My goal is to help stabilize communities using real estate and real estate finance solutions to help homeowners and prospective homeowners better understand the home-ownership home-purchase process so that they can make informed choices that directly impact the neighborhoods in which they live, their families and the greater surrounding community.
