The memory of his family buying their first home 25 years ago and the change it brought to their lives still burns bright. He was born in Manhattan, New York and lived in New Jersey until his family bought their very first home in Deltona, Florida. The city kid took to Florida life in a heartbeat and never looked back. Always a planner, Carlos put his scholarship to the South’s #1 Private Institution of higher learning, Rollins College, on hold for 6 months to serve our country by enlisting in the United States Marine Corp (95-99). He served and studied for the next 4 years to accomplish his childhood goal of becoming the first of his immediate and extended family to receive a college degree from Rollins College in 2000. Carlos is a huge Football fan so joining the Orlando Predators coaching staff in 2000 and winning a World Championship that same year was amazing. In 2002, Carlos graduated from HomeBanc’s legendary “LO Boot Camp” where he received the most intensive mortgage training offered in the country. Carlos has since laughed, hugged, cried, and shook hands with hundreds of his clients at their Closing Celebrations. He takes pride in doing his part to keep the dream of homeownership alive and well in the hopes it impacts homeowners as much as it did for his family 25 years ago. Carlos currently lives in Orlando with his dog Sarg while regularly tending to his Yoga practice and diving head first into his newest passion, CrossFit. Are the CrossFit Games in the future? Who knows but either way, Carlos will enjoy each step of the way just as he enjoys each and every day he is given to make a difference for himself, his family, and for others.

Mortgage PlannerTo give you a little background about myself, I am a veteran of the Real Estate profession. I have been in the mortgage industry for over 18 years, been a licensed Real Estate Professional and am a homeowner myself. I have a true understanding of all sides of a purchase transaction and know the importance of communication to all parties to make the transaction a success. I started my financial career in Seattle with Washington Mutual in 1991 and have continued to grow in the industry through various aspects of the business. I have had the honor of being on Congressman Bill Posey’s Financial Roundtable in 2010 and in 2011. My greatest satisfaction in my career is helping people in our community achieve homeownership, whether it is their first home, their last home or purchasing investment property. What is also important to me is treating people fairly and ethically. I work with people in all price ranges and no matter what the objective is. I feel truly blessed to be a part of such a great business and enjoy the challenges that it sometimes brings.
