Our Rookie of the Quarter award is given to an employee who started his mortgage career and Augusta Financial journey during the Covid lockdown. Carlos Orozco, Transaction Coordinator, is our Rookie of the Quarter for 2021 Q1. In the past few months, Carlos has shown his willingness to go above and beyond and has committed to growth; even obtaining his NMLS license just a few months after his date of hire.
As a Transaction Coordinator, Carlos is one of the first people that the borrower interacts with during the loan process. Working on both purchase and refinance transactions, he guides the borrower in providing documents needed to submit the loan for underwriting. He loves assisting new homebuyers through the pre-approval process and enjoys seeing their excitement after they are given the “green-light” to start shopping for a new home.
Prior to Augusta Financial, Carlos was a student at California State University, Northridge, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Financial Analysis. He recently started going back to the gym and really enjoys training his dog to do tricks. His dog currently knows 6 tricks and is on track to master trick #7. Carlos loves to travel and travels often. He goes to Mexico several times a year and says “Chiapas, Cancun and Mexico City have been (his) favorite places to visit.”
Augusta Financial is happy to have Carlos on our Team and we look forward to his continued growth and success. Congratulations!
