Mortgage Banking career path
Steve started the only career he has ever had originating mortgage loans in 1983. Years later, pursuing a life-long dream of owning his own business, he became a managing partner /director of Comstock Mortgage in May 1991. He held this position for 23 Years. In the fall of 2014, Steve and his business partners at Comstock Mortgage, were approached by Guild Mortgage based in San Diego. Immediately recognizing a good fit, and with Guild's 50 Year track record of mortgage banking, Steve and his business partners merged their Comstock Mortgage Banking division with Guild in Oct 2014. We are now known as Guild Mortgage, the Comstock division. The senior management at Guild really gets it. They're employee-centric, have a large portfolio of retained loan servicing, and are financially strong to continue in the regulated world of mortgage lending.
Steve is a Sacramento-born native, 1976 Jesuit High School alumni, and attended California State University Sacramento earning a Bachelor of Science degree in 1983 in Business with an emphasis in Finance and Economics.
