Meet the Team

Wendy Silva

Loan Officer

I live in Altadena, California with my family.  I graduated from the University of Southern California with an emphasis in Real Estate Finance.  I then started my career in commercial real estate working with brokerage firms, asset management companies, REITs and other institutional investors.

In 2002, I chose to make a directional change in my career path to be a Loan Officer.  In this capacity I am able to apply my knowledge and experience to advise you on how to make the most of your real estate financing decisions.  I enjoy the opportunity to actually provide a service that is thoughtful and honest and in your best interest.
