I’ve lived in San Diego nearly all my life. I attended Grossmont High, SDSU, and graduated from The University of Redlands with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a minor in Finance. Education aside, what my clients tell me they like best is my willingness to LISTEN TO MY BORROWERS and to learn what is most important to them!
When I’m not passionately working on my clients’ loans, you are likely to find me enjoying beautiful Southern California. I love to golf, enjoy the beach, reading a book in my hammock, and exploring the varied cuisines our local restaurants have to offer. I’ve been married to Denise for over 40 years. We have two grown children and we recently became grandparents. Consequently, we spend a lot of time flying to Chicago where our grandchildren are.
Whether you’re a First Time Homebuyer or buying your 20th Investment Property, I look forward to working hard to become your LENDER FOR LIFE!

We had a great experience as first-time home buyers with the Guild Mortgage team. We chose not to use an agent for our situation, so we really trusted them to guide us throughout the process in our specific transaction. Bruce went the extra mile for us in helping us understand our VA loan and answered all of our questions/concerns quickly and with a lot of explanation and detail. He helped us get connected to the right people and resources when we did not know who to reach out to. We felt comfortable reaching out to him at any time and he was always there when needed. Bruce, Jeremiah, and Yvette helped us obtain our dream home! Thank you all so much!!!
I recently transacted on my first 4 unit deal in San Diego County with Bruce and I can definitely say it has been an incredible experience. To be honest if it wasn't for Bruce and his team at Guild Mortgage I'd likely not have gotten through all the hurdles this deal presented. They remained as relentless (or more) as I have been in getting to the finish line and not only served as a lender but a mentor in the process. I reached out to Bruce on this opportunity to get his opinion on the feasibility to get the loan that I was hoping to obtain. His guidance and many years of experience in the industry has been invaluable in understanding how a lender and the federal government think about real estate what signs and financial/deal moves you should consider and when and how to overcome any hurdles that the deal may throw at you. There are a few items I think really set me apart as a buyer and that was Bruce's attention to detail and level of communication. Bruce followed up the pre-approval letter (sent along with the purchase agreement) with a video explaining me as a potential buyer and why I'd be a strong candidate. This touch point was one of the many where Bruce was not only helpful on the lending side but on the deal securing side. In a hot market little things like this really seem to catch seller's and selling broker's attention. It helps that Bruce is extremely personable too. I don't know anyone else that utilizes video and tech tools as well as Bruce. Thanks again for all your hard work! Excited to see what else we can work on in the future.
