Prior to joining Residential Finance, Jorge originated mortgage loans throughout Florida under a local, family owned private bank.  Other relevant experience include his work at American Express, where he went extensive training in credit analysis and management. 

Jorge holds a degree in Financial Economics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This understanding of economics as it translates to the mortgage industry, has helped him tremendously in connecting with a variety of clients in meeting their borrowing needs. Hence, clients of Jorge value his expertise in structuring the correct lending program to fit a situation.  He usually serves as the customer's chief point of contact with Residential Finance throughout the life of the loan.  Jorge also works hand-in-hand with bankers, underwriters, processors, always with the main goal of meeting our customers' borrowing needs, working as a team creating an outstanding customer experience; fluently in both English and Spanish.

Jorge delivers on the vision of treating the sophisticated borrowers on a case by case basis, as their unique situations make it impossible to group them into a cookie-cutter category.  This is the benefit of working with a mortgage banker who has experience in the financial services industry, versus dealing with a loan officer at any other institution

Closed purchase loan.
I bought a HUD home using Jorge's lending program. The approval and the underwriting went fine, but we came across the government shutdown. Jorge went above and beyond the call of duty by staying on top of the title company, HUD, the realtors and the city, ensuring that my close would not get delayed anymore. His professionalism, dedication and patience were instrumental into getting this deal closed as he reached adequately to all parties and swiftly coordinated my close. Thanks so much Jorge!  MoreLess
