Ron Bruno
VP of Mortgage Lending

If I could encapsulate why I have a passion for real estate and finance, it is because "I love to help people!" Home ownership is one of the greatest paths to building wealth in America. A home can appreciate in value, generate a stream of income and/or serve as a leveraged asset. The home buying process is rife with pitfalls unless you have the right professionals managing your transaction. From our initial conversation to the funding and servicing of your loan, I manage the loan process from A-Z and serve as an available resource for any real estate and financial matters before, during and after your home purchase. By taking an active role in the loan process and leveraging my team in processing, underwriting and funding, I identify potential steps needed to take so that you are positioned for a home loan now or in the future. Professionally, my career spans 10 years in sales, marketing and business development and for a better part of a decade, I have served business owners, executives, professionals and first time homebuyers managing their personal finances. My referral network consists of Realtors, CPAs, Financial Advisors, Attorneys, Insurance Professionals and Business Managers, where I am considered a key partner and an extension of their team. I am a graduate of the Graziadio School of Management of Pepperdine University where I received an MBA in Finance and received my undergraduate degree from the Goizueta Business School of Emory University where I received a BBA in Marketing and Management. I serve as Vice Chairman for the Child Development Institute in Canoga Park, Board Advisor for the Los Angeles Pepperdine Waves Alumni Council and Past President of the Los Angeles Emory Alumni Association. My wife, Karen, and I live in the San Gabriel Valley where we enjoy travel, wine and entertaining our friends and family.
