My name is Ericka Quichocho (think Pikachu and then say "Ki-Cha-Choo") and I'm a loan officer/mortgage advisor at Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation.
5 fun facts about me:
- I'm originally from the tiny island of Guam.
- I have two crazy toddlers.
- I'm addicted to coffee.
- My son is autistic and amazing.
- I love doing mortgages.
There's a poster hanging on the wall in my office that says "Love What You Do," and I am so blessed because I really do LOVE what I do! I was given the rare opportunity to learn the mortgage industry from the ground up. I started off as a lead caller with no mortgage experience whatsoever, and I worked my way up to becoming the top loan officer assistant in the office, before becoming a loan coordinator and eventually a sales manager. I've now been a licensed loan officer at Fairway for nearly five years, and I couldn't have picked a better place to work! The mortgage industry can be challenging. Rules and guidelines are ever-changing, but I'm always looking for ways to improve my product knowledge and stay up to date with the most current guidelines. I take the time to educate my clients to ensure they understand things well enough to make informed decisions. I teach monthly homebuyer education classes, and I also specialize in rehab/renovation loans.Read More
