“He Lives in His Four Family”

“He Lives in His Four Family”




I originally did a mortgage for Dan’s parents, who referred me to their son. Dan purchased a 4 family that he has lived in for a few years and now wants to purchase a single family home with his fiancé.


The great part about this transition is that most of the mortgage payment for the single family will be paid by the revenues from the multifamily.



Hey Joe,


Hope all is well, my fiancé and I are looking to purchase our first single family home together. I was wondering if you could handle our pre-approval process? And if so what the steps we have to take are? I Look forward to hearing from you.


Thank you Dan. 


It will be just a matter of time that another multifamily home will be in sight as well.

Good morning, Joe --- Dan certainly appears to be a very smart guy --- first, a four unit property where he started his real estate nest egg and second, for choosing you for expert mortgage guidance

That's a great story, Joe. I've known several people who bought duplexes, lived in one unit with their mortgage payments made by the other unit! Great way to build wealth.

Love this story...you remind me of one of the men I met in Napa who did loans.  He told us, that he now is helping with the grandchildren of his clients...no social media, no website, just plenty of referrals because of a job well done...A

Joe that is a great position to be in, having the rent from the 4 family house pay for the two mortgages.
