Mortgage Loans, Property Management
With over 20 years of lending experience I believe that the title of Mortgage Professional is not one of a job, or a career. It's the lifestyle that one must choose to text-4 to be successful in this field. In my years of experience forging a successful career in the mortgage industry, I consistently try to seize every opportunity to exceed the expectations of my clients and colleagues with integrity, professionalism and leadership.
Striving to live and work by the "Golden Rule" I treat all clients, co-workers and people the way I want to be treated: friendly, fair, welcoming and with respect.
With an uncanny work ethic, a go-getter attitude, and a straight-forward approach, I serve as a licensed mortgage banker for OneTrust Home Loans. With a focus on originating home loans, I also serve as a trusted resource to my clients, peers and a dedicated referral partner.
Specialties: All of your Residential Mortgage Financing needs including FHA, VA, Conventional and Jumbo loans. Now also offering 2nd mortgages. Refinances as well as purchases with as little as 3.5% down payments.
In my personal life, I am a dedicated father to three sons. I'm an avid youth sports coach, volunteering to coach youth baseball, basketball, soccer and flag football, as well as volunteer to be a board member. I enjoy golfing, waterskiing, and playing softball and I am constantly networking. I currently also serve as the President of NCNG.
I came to Edward Jones because we are a private partnership, meaning that our firm does not make business decisions to appease public shareholders but instead make decisions that are the best our clients and the firm. This allows me to build a plan for my clients for their unique and personal goals and the investments and planning are the methods to achieve those goals, whether that is planning for retirement, living in retirement, saving for education, planning for your estate or planning for the unexpected.
There's nothing more important to me than understanding what's important to you. Only then, can you and I work through our established process to help you build personalized strategies and the specific actions needed to achieve your goals. I'll continue to partner with you and your family throughout your life, revisiting your goals and risk tolerance, as well as the strategies we've developed, to help keep you on track toward your goals.
I look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.

Punam Chowdhury, MD
Anti-Aging, Skin Care, & Wellness
I am fortunate to have started my journey in medicine many years ago and to be board certified in internal medicine.
For 12 years I have enjoyed living in sunny San Diego. I have 16+ years of experience in internal medicine and urgent care medicine and I am an associate professor at the University of California, San Diego. In the hope to find further professional growth and a new challenge, I pursued entrepreneurship due to my love for skincare and wellness. A fellow physician introduced me to Neora a few years ago and I fell in love with their cutting edge, unique science-based botanical products with patented ingredients formulated in biotech companies likely Signum Bioscience on Princeton University’s campus.
When I started using Neora, my skin became smoother, more youthful, and luminous, and I noticed my friends, family, and even strangers asking me about my skincare regimen. As I used the wellness products, my sleep and focus improved, which was especially important at the time due to my ever-changing, emergency department night and day schedule. I noticed feeling more energized and healthy. Additionally, Neora’s culture based on the cultivation of happiness, encouragement of daily productive habits, positive thinking, and an incredible support system, ultimately drew me to start my own Neora business.
I have the honor of being a brand partner of Neora. I market their products and am involved in the ripple effect of their “live happy” culture.
Neora has become one of the fastest growing anti-aging companies since its start in 2011. We are available in over 12 countries. Our innovative products include multifunctional and botanical anti-aging skincare, wellness and more recently hair care products. I am so excited to share Neora with you and your family.

Realtor, CDPE, e-PRO, SRES, Certified Probate Expert
As a full-time Realtor in San Diego County since 1994, I understand the cycles of Real Estate and you can trust me to help you safely navigate COVID19 and beyond. My wife, Sunshine (DRE#01249837), is my assistant and she has been licensed since 1998. You will have a great team working for you when you hire us.
I can appreciate that a lot of people looking to buy or sell homes have thought about putting it off until the COVID-19 virus has passed or is at least under control. For some people, that’s totally fine. If they have no absolute need to buy a house and can wait until they feel more comfortable, they should just wait it out. It’s just not that cut and dried for a lot of buyers and sellers, though. Life can’t be put on hold entirely — especially since we don’t really know how long “waiting it out” will be. So, for a lot of people, the question has become, how should we proceed?
I am still actively assisting buyers and sellers while following proper COVID19 protocols of physical distancing, virtual meetings & showings and proper PPE (masks, gloves, booties & hand sanitizer) while viewing properties. You can see the virtual buying & selling programs I use to help you feel confident and safe and to protect everybody during the process. Visit my blog at: www.sandiegohomes4u.com/blog.
