Brian Decker, branch manager of City First Mortgage Services’ Orange County and San Diego offices, has been honored a second consecutive year by Scotsman Guide, the leader in mortgage origination publications, who acknowledged Decker for his exceptional work in the mortgage industry with the Top Volume Gain Award.
In August 2012, Brian Decker personally closed 57 loans totaling over $23 million in a single month, breaking two of City First Mortgage's all-time records: the most loans funded in a single month by a single loan officer and the one-month record for most loans funded by a single branch.
Brian Decker was first recognized with the prestigious Top Volume Gain Award in 2011, when he bested over 200,000 loan officers in the United States by increasing his loan production to over $80 million in a single year, with total loans funded exceeding $110 million. By 2012, his overall loan production reached over $170 million.
Decker is personally involved in every step of a client’s loan, from the initial application phone call to the final signing, something very few of the country’s top producers can accomplish due to heavy workload and long hours. Brian acknowledges that his success isn’t something he could have accomplished without the dedication and long hours contributed by his support staff, including Diana Fernandez, Jonathon Solek and Brandon Lee.
Due to the increasing demand for Brian Decker’s services, he expanded his presence in Southern California by opening up a second office in Orange County, CA, in August 2012. He currently manages two offices in Southern California — the original office in Downtown San Diego and his primary office in Orange County. Over the last 10 years he has grown from a small 400-square-foot office funding about $10 million per year to his current practice where he personally funds over $170 million per year without any sacrifice to service, as his Five-Star Zillow.com review will testify.
Decker's clients have rewarded his excellent service by returning year after year, including many clients who have closed over five loans with him in just the last two years alone. This is partly due to his unique practice of paying for each of his client’s appraisals upfront. This prevents a client from ever having to come out of pocket to refinance or purchase a home.
Brian Decker currently resides in Orange Park Acres, CA, with his fiancée Alison and their two French bulldogs. For my information on Brian Decker, you can visit his website at http://www.city1stloans.com or contact his Orange County office at 714-937-1401.
