Gordon Jay Friedman

I’ve lived in the Bay Area for 25 years and have worked as a mortgage broker and banker for the past 12 years. I graduated with both an M.B.A. and B.A. in Finance from George Washington University.

I began my career working as an institutional investment consultant to large pension plans. Later, I lived and worked in Taiwan coordinating production and international distribution for a nationally known mountain bike brand. Later, during the first dotcom boom, I worked in technology. Initially, I directed operations for an e-commerce startup and then moved on to consulting with startups to help them build their own e-commerce systems.

My background in finance allows me to clearly explain how mortgages work and how borrowing to purchase a home fits into your’ overall financial picture. As a homeowner and property investor, I’m able to offer you a perspective on mortgages and home ownership based on personal experience.

In addition to offering conventional financing, I am also a TIC (tenancy in common) expert and a recognized source for financing and information about this uniquely San Francisco form of ownership. My expertise in TIC’s was earned through personal experience. In 1999 I became a one-third owner of a TIC in San Francisco. I lived there for several years and then sold my unit after my partners and I converted the property to condominiums.

My goal is to structure a deal that fits your unique situation. To do so I pay close attention to your current financial situation as well as your long-term financial goals. I then oversee all of the financing details. For a purchase, this means you and your real estate agent can focus on the other important elements of buying a home. For a [...]

Orlando Diaz

Orlando has been in the financial services industry for 15 years.  He spent most of that time in the area of software development, specifically developing applications that would be used by consumers, as a step-by-step customer support application.  This and other areas of customer support helped him better understand ways to provide thorough step-by-step support to his clients.

He feels that as a loan consultant it’s critical that his clients know they can rely on him as their single point of contact.  He’s here to help them have a good experience and smooth transaction.  He prides himself on personal service and his many years in the technical field have conditioned him to be extremely detailed.  He’s quickly learned that paying close attention to all the details of each loan transaction is critical during the loan process.

Although he grew up in and around New York, he’s lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for several years and considers it his home.  He knows the San Francisco Bay Area Real Estate market and owns a home in San Francisco.

Orlando looks forward to working with you and providing you with outstanding personal service.
