I am a California native, growing up in Palos Verdes Estates, CA and then attending college at UC Berkeley.  I graduated from Berkeley in 1982 with a BA in Economics.

I entered the mortgage business in 1993 in Dallas, TX.  I returned to Berkeley in 2008 and have been originating loans in the East Bay ever since.

I am married to my 8th grade sweetheart.  We live in the North Berkley Hills with gorgeous views in a wonderful mid century modern house.

We have two pugs, Wu Lung and Pumpkin (Nan Gua in Chinese).

We love to play golf and are members at the TPC Stonebrae in the Hayward hills.

Closed purchase loan.

I approached Gil for my loan because my bank became incredibly ineffective in communicating the loan process for my second purchase. Gil was timely, efficient, and knowledgeable throughout the process. He worked with my realtor very closely and executed the loan with the seller. I’ve also referred a number of friends to him and he’s treated them with the same type of passion and commitment. I would highly recommend Gil to anyone that may be looking for a purchase or re-fi. Good luck and hope this review helps.

Closed purchase loan. Oak Knoll-Golf Links, Oakland, CA

I've worked with Mr. Faust on a number of transactions. He was friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. One time he closed for me in thirteen days, and that was before the days of fast closings. He is one the top three mortgage agents that I recommend to my clients.

Likewise he has done more to educate my clients and I about the loan application and underwriting process. As well as explain the ins and outs of the secondary mortgage market.  More Less
