Armando's Bio

I started originating in November of 2006 and have since grown stronger as a Loan Officer year after year. The big ways in which I have grown are by really being sure to have those difficult conversations with clients and to ensure that the entire loan process is handled efficiently. The end goal, to get as close to 100% of the loans I take on to close as possible.

Since the beginning, I have always gotten such an amazing feeling when I receive an application and have the chance to develop a relationship with a new client. The connections and remarkable relationships that develop as I guide my clients through the loan process are so invaluable. Helping them cope through the anxiety and fear that comes with the loan process and seeing the look on their faces when they get that house brings such a feeling of accomplishment to my heart.

In my spare time, I spend a lot of time as a single father with my 4 kids: Tatyanna, Kendall, Milania, and Santino. I love spending time painting, doing family outings, visiting the park, and run as a unit with them. They are such a beautiful and passionate part of my life. I would not trade them or my career for the world.
