Glenn Bushmire
VP of Mortgage Lending

Glenn Bushmire is a rare breed, a native Californian born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. He was on his way to UC Berkeley to test his knowledge of physics and science in the classroom when he decided the real-world curriculum of extreme winter sports proved a better testing ground and headed to the Lake Tahoe/Truckee area. What some may consider an extreme diversion proved to be exactly what Glenn needed to hone his competitive edge. He knew there was something more and he found it on the slopes when fellow athletes talked business and home buying. Glenn wanted to help. He realized he had a gift making connections and running financial numbers so at the age of 24 he returned to school at the University of Nevada, Reno, and graduated with distinction, receiving his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Marketing. One might say Glenn learned the real estate business from the ground up. Not only was he raised by a top-producing real estate broker, he also put himself through college building homes as a lead construction foreman and learned all faucets of building. After graduation, Glenn was hired by a local mortgage broker and quickly learned the business of real estate lending. Within a year, BWC Mortgage Services, an affiliate of The Bank of Walnut Creek, entered into a joint venture with Glenn and at the age of 29 he opened a mortgage banking and brokering branch in Lake Tahoe, serving as both branch manager and premier mortgage specialist. His branch became one of the lead lending companies in the Lake Tahoe/Truckee area, thanks not only to his proficiency in the market but also his personal involvement in the community based on his desire to help others. Glenn continued to take an active role in the area becoming an affiliate member of The Tahoe Sierra Board of Realtors and local Chamber of Commerce, Hospitals, Kiwanis and Disabled Sports programs. Most recently he became an affiliate member with OCAR, the Orange County Association of Realtors. In 2012, Glenn relocated to Southern California to be near his aging mother. He quickly shelved the snowboard for a surfboard and found himself striking up conversations and deals between waves at local breaks. Glenn became established in the local market at 1st Pacific and in 2015 he joined the newly formed Ditch team, quickly becoming one of the top producers in the Irvine office. If Glenn has a secret, it’s that he never gives up and he always gives back. Whether it’s the first-time home buyer or a multi-million dollar investment, Glenn can provide up-to-date knowledge and financing. He seeks out current economic trends on the local and global markets and has worked with every type of loan including conventional, jumbo, construction, FHA, VA and commercial; as well as every type of property from single-family residence to multi-units, condotels, acreage, income-producing, commercial, boat slips and timeshares. Glenn has extensive and detailed knowledge of the market whether on a local or a global scale and he uses this to help people fulfill their dreams. He quickly and accurately accesses a client’s current situation and home buying potential to help fulfill their financial goals through the real estate lending channel. He is passionate and enthusiastic and always makes himself available, even if it requires mapping Fed Ex locations on foreign destinations to get documents where they need to be. Glenn also continues to make himself available to the community by volunteering with associations such as Camp Wet n’ Wild, a surf camp for kids with disabilities.

This is NOT a mortgage loan approval or commitment to lend. The actual fees, costs, and monthly payment on your specific loan transaction may vary, and may include city, county, or other additional fees and costs. Mortgage rates are offered exclusively through Guaranteed Rate and are subject to change without notice. If the down payment is less than 20%, mortgage insurance may be required and could increase the monthly payment and APR. The payment amount does not include homeowners' insurance, flood insurance (if applicable), or property taxes that must be paid in addition to your loan payment. The displayed Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is a measure of the cost to borrow money expressed as a yearly percentage. For mortgage loans, excluding home equity lines of credit, it includes the interest rate plus other charges or fees (such as mortgage insurance, discount points, and origination charges). For home equity lines, the APR simply reflects the interest rate. When shopping for a mortgage, you can use the APR to compare the costs of similar loans between lenders. One discount points equals one percent of your loan amount. Some jumbo loan options may not be available to first\-time home buyers. We based the mortgage interest rates shown on a 30\-day rate lock period. Under certain circumstances, a 30\-day rate lock may not be available. When you apply, you can choose to lock or float your interest rate range. Mortgage rates and loan options displayed depend on a number of variables, including the accuracy of the information you have entered, which is subject to verification, credit and property approval. These mortgage rates are based upon a variety of assumptions and conditions, which include a consumer credit score that may be higher or lower than your individual credit score. Your loan's interest rate will depend upon the specific characteristics of your loan transaction and your credit history up to the time of closing. VA If you meet the eligibility requirements of the VA program, gifts or grants may be used for down payments. Up to 100% financing may be available for qualified borrowers. Most VA loans require the borrower to pay a 'funding fee'. This fee may be paid out of pocket or financed into the loan amount. At the direction of the United States Congress and the Department of Veterans Affairs VA Funding Fees may increase or decrease without notice. Guaranteed Rate, Inc. is a private corporation organized under the laws of the State of Delaware. It has no affiliation with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, the US Department of Agriculture, or any other government agency. Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARMs) Interest rates and payments may increase after consummation. After the initial fixed period, your interest rate may change periodically according to the market index. Any change may significantly impact your monthly payment. Since the index in the future is unknown, the First Adjusted Rate and Payments displayed are based on the current index plus the margin (fully indexed rate) at time of scenario/disclosure. Before choosing an ARM, you should decide if you can manage the maximum estimated payment if the rate increases. To fully understand minimum and maximum payments, please speak to a mortgage loan expert.
