Mark got into lending back in 2004 as a wholesale rep for First Federal Bank of California. This is where he cut his teeth in the Mortgage Business. He funded over 1,000 loans at the bank & worked hand in hand with Underwriters, Doc Drawers, Funders & the Chief Credit Officer of the bank. It was here that he learned to underwrite loans to ever changing program guidelines.First Federal bank eventually closed due to the credit crisis & Mark moved into other industries. He even spent some time living in Guangzhou China while working in the garment industry. However, he never found anything he loved to do like lending. So, he returned to the business working with both PennyMac & Bank of America before finding a home with CSMC Mortgage.

They have a wide range of loan products offering everything from Conventional Loans, to Self-Employed Bank Statement Programs to Reverse Mortgages.
