About Eddie Gomez
I started my professional career as a party host at Chuck E. Cheese when I was 16 years old. Though I've come a long way from that, I love to recall the story because it opened the door so that today I can proudly say I've been ranked in NAHREP's top 250 Latino Loan Originators consecutive years. Assessing the needs of the party's I hosted and being proactive caught the attention of a patron of mine, a bank branch manager, who asked me to apply at his branch the day I turned 18 years old. Four months shy of my 18th birthday, every Thursday when I got my paycheck, I drove past 5 other bank branches and took it straight to his branch, hoping the door of opportunity would stay open. I got the job, and I've had a few others since, but I haven't changed much. I still start by assessing my clients financial needs, am proactive in tailoring a solution, and am persistent through closing. In fact, my path from blue collar to the heights of white collar has taught me how to relate to people of all economic backgrounds. Most importantly, it allows me to educate my clients on their mortgage loan options in the terms they understand; allowing them to make the best financial decision.
