Jim Crawford

NMLS #222588

I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in communications in 1989 and since 1990, I have dedicated myself to providing the best possible mortgage consultation for my clients.

Throughout my years in the mortgage industry, I have acquired experience and knowledge in every facet of residential home lending. I draw from this knowledge to help my clients achieve their individual financial goals.

I have organized a talented team of mortgage professionals to help guide our clients through the loan process and to simplify the borrowing experience.

In my spare time you will find me coaching my four kids in soccer and softball. I also play in an adult soccer league myself.
