Our Story

Founded upon the basic principles of honesty and integrity, Good Neighbor Mortgage & Realty adheres to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism and continues to do what’s “right” in an industry that, unfortunately, has done so “wrong”.

Real estate buying, selling, and financing is a serious business for serious people who understand the value and benefits of home ownership. You deserve a licensed, knowledgeable, and experienced professional who realizes that each homeowner’s situation is unique. “Life happens” and it’s our job to listen so that we can recommend the best options available in order to achieve tangible and profitable solutions.

Even though the real estate market can be difficult, complex, and often times overwhelming, our mission remains true and simple. You are a real person with real questions, legitimate concerns, and financial objectives. By implementing this basic premise into our everyday practice of servicing California homeowners for over 20 years, Good Neighbor Mortgage & Realty has maintained a reputation of trust, reliability, and longevity.

The biggest compliment that we can receive is the recommendation of your friends, relatives, and co-workers so that we may offer our services to them with the assurance that they also receive the best representation, personalized service, and the lowest rates and fees.

We are truly honored by your trust, appreciative of your business, and thankful for your endorsement!
