Personal Bio: After achieving a BA in Economics from the University of Albany (New York), Keith felt it was time to get out of the snow and so made the move shortly thereafter to sunny San Diego, California in 1996. He quickly learned that his hard-hitting East Coast work ethic would stand out amongst the laid-back lifestyle and set his sights on building his own mortgage team within a thriving community banking organization. Today Keith is a Six-Time Five Star Award winner for outstanding customer service. After purchasing his first home when he came to San Diego with little to no understanding from his Loan Officer about the loan process other than a rate and payment, Keith made it his mission to expand the role of “Loan Officer” to include educator - to educate on every step of the loan process. “When I talk to clients, I want them to feel comfortable with all decisions and confident in their home loan and ability to afford their mortgage payment. We review disclosures, payments, loan options, closing costs – no stone left unturned means no surprises and a smooth, on-time closing”. Along with Keith's passion for mortgage lending, comes his passion for family. Keith lives in North County with his beautiful wife and 3 daughters. While you can most often find him working all hours of the night, you can also find him playing a round of golf from time to time, enjoying a good football or basketball game and spending quality time with his wife and children.
