Sal started his mortgage career as a part time teller at a local credit union in 2011 while working a 2nd job as a boxing coach. It was that banking experience coupled with the suggestion from a student at the boxing gym that led him to show up at a job fair 7 yrs ago for a mortgage company that was hiring entry level sales professionals. This was the opportunity needed to build a career, and build he did. From the beginning of his tenure he consistently ranked at the top of the company in terms of families helped by restructuring their home loans to save them as much money monthly as possible. From there he proceeded to branch off with another company that was better equipped to assist homebuyers in closing their purchase loans at a competitive rate, in a timely manner, and with world class service. It wasn’t long before Sal determined that there was a better way to do business. One that would allow him the autonomy to conduct business his way; while still being able to offer his clients competitive products. In his 7th year; he is experienced enough to find solutions to problems before they cause delays, and young enough to have the energy to commit to you and your financing goals.
