About Alissa Alvarez
Alissa first started in real estate as a real estate agent in October of 2004, and then transitioned into the mortgage lending side as a loan officer in 2005. She gets her knack for real estate from her grandmother who she notes was the first business woman in the family and had always owned real estate. Alissa grew up watching her grandmother never worry much about finances in her retirement as she could always count on the income she collected from her rental properties. Wanting that same freedom, Alissa followed in the same path and began a career in the field after graduating college. While the lending side of real estate may seem like it's just about numbers and finance, it surprisingly involves much more than that. Teaching truly is at the heart of lending. Being able to translate what may seem like a scary lending process into something that is easy for a new homebuyer to understand, empowering them to make an informed decision is what Alissa finds to be the most rewarding part of the job. Outside of work, Alissa loves playing soccer, free climbing, mountaineering, traveling and live music in LA. A fun fact is she has a calico cat who she says rules her house 100%.
