His mastery in structuring complex deals, particularly those involving mid-construction or large rehabs, showcases his exceptional expertise in navigating intricate scenarios. His commitment to always making his team member’s deals a priority exemplifies his personal investment in their success. He doesn’t just push for excellence; he actively pushes his team to always strive for improvement, emphasizing the importance of avoiding complacency. 

What is one habit that has helped you succeed?

On a daily basis, I try to attack each task like it’s the most important item of the day. From an origination standpoint, this means treating each loan like it’s the only loan I have, which translates to clients feeling like their loan is always my top priority. From a prospecting perspective, I approach each day like there are no loans in my pipeline which pushes me to always focus on new business regardless of how big my pipeline may be.

From a leadership standpoint, this means being my teams biggest advocate, pushing them to succeed, and always being in their corner. I am personally invested in each member of my team, and it’s a priority for me to ensure they feel that support each and every day.
