This month at Augusta Financial, we are spotlighting Senior Loan Officer, Andy Boron. Known around the office for his charismatic and carefree attitude, Andy has been one of the Company’s top producing loan officers for over 15 years.
While at Augusta, Andy has banked in excess of 400 loans, brokered many more and most importantly educated hundreds. He specializes in First Time Homebuyers who require patience and prides himself on applying high moral and ethical standards when dealing with clients and structuring loans.
Andy has said that he feels the most valued when he is helping people get into their first homes. He believes the most important thing he has learned at Augusta is “that no matter how many loans you have in the pipeline you can always do more.” Andy has “learned how to be creative in structuring loans. Many brokers simply run the numbers and move on if the numbers don’t result in a qualified loan. At Augusta, you learn to work the file from every angle as long as the final result benefits the client.”
Like most people in this business, Andy did not plan to have a career in mortgage. His first job out of college was working for Norwest Financial making collection calls to folks in the community. This really wasn’t his cup of tea. It was while looking to buy his own house that a Realtor introduced him to a friend who worked in Animation. Shortly after, Andy became the Production Manager and started balancing budgets for the animated series Iron Man and Fantastic Four. The animation industry quickly evolved and more and more jobs were being performed overseas. In between shows, a former colleague at Norwest Financial approached Andy and offered him the chance to try something new and open a branch for a mortgage broker. It was then, that the mortgage industry got a hold of Andy and hasn’t let him go.
Andy resides in Santa Clarita, CA with his wife Michele. They have three children all of whom are smart, honest, hardworking and want to serve their community and Country. Nathan is a US Marine, Alexander is a US Coast Guard, and their daughter Olivia will be attending Seattle Pacific University in the fall. Andy and Michelle are doting parents who place emphasis on spending time with family and friends. In his free time Andy likes to golf, camp, BBQ, hunt, fish and laugh.
There is little that Andy isn’t willing to share with people; however, when asked what is one thing most people don’t know about you, Andy replied, “I was Student Body President. I was a two-sport athlete playing Football and Basketball. I was Defensive Captain and played Inside Linebacker on a Championship Football Team for Canyon High School. Youngest of 10 children. I have 7 sisters. Santa Clarita Native. I worked at Magic Mountain. I waited tables. I wanted to be a news broadcaster when I was younger.” See, not much Andy isn’t willing to share.
We are lucky to have Andy as part of our Augusta family. You may see Andy around town or out supporting our troops. You will probably hear his laugh from across a room or a parking lot. Don’t be shy, please stop and say hello.
