Branch Manager

Hi I'm Scott. I am a Branch Manager and Renovation Loan Specialist with the mortgage banking firm LeaderOne Financial in Yorba Linda, California. While my business card states that I’m a licensed Loan Originator, I actually consider myself a professional problem solver and educator. For the past 16 years I have loved coaching real estate agents, owners and buyers through the mortgage finance and rehab loan process.
