"As an immigrant from a country that didn't have a developed residential lending system, I have an immense appreciation of homeownership and the role of the lending industry. As a mortgage lender, I have the opportunity, skills and experience to assist my clients and their families. I am always available to answer any loan related questions during the loan transaction and beyond. I believe in creating relationships for life and I am grateful for the opportunity to bring value, to assist my clients and be a part of the home purchasing process. I consider investing in real estate to be investing in your successful financial future." As a mortgage lender, Petya's competitive advantages include low interest rates, open communication with all of her clients, and fast and smooth closings. She specializes in conventional, FHA, VA, CalHFA and Jumbo loans and is licensed in four states including California, Colorado, Idaho, and Washington.
