Rodrigo is an Arizona native who graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in psychology. This has helped enhance his passion to truly understand the needs of his clients and create the best financial solution for them. After graduating the university with Summa Cum Laude honors, he started working for the largest lender in the country and quickly became a brand name within the mortgage industry. With over 7 years of experience in an originating and leadership position he has helped achieve or maintain home ownership with nearly 3000 American families.

During his tenure as a Triple Crown Mortgage Banker, he helped fund over $400 Million in volume and over 1500+ families achieve homeownership through refinancing or purchasing and as a sales leader he led a team of 12-15 loan officers who helped fund over 1400+ units annually. After achieving what he believed to be his peak of his career he decided to take on a new challenge and accept a position as a Vice President at one of the nation’s top banks. Here he was more hands on with the process and would ensure a simple and efficient process from initial phone call to ensuring all post funding conditions were cleared to meet the investors requirements at the time of purchase.

Throughout his career he has always felt there was a void that needed to be filled which is why he decided to take things into his own hands. Rodrigo created Home1st Financial Inc with one vision in mind- serve the communities who need financial guidance the most.
