Regional Director/Loan Officer
Manny believes that at its core real estate is now and will always be a relationship business which is why he focuses so much of his energy on strengthening his relationships with local real estate brokerages, title companies, and new home builders. Without knowing and having the respect of these local professionals it can be next to impossible to give a home buyer the pleasant
experience they deserve during their home buying process. Making sure each and every client receives a great experience is what truly drives Manny. With 19 years’ experience in the mortgage banking industry and as the top producer for the Maitland Branch of Home Team, he was given a promotion that allowed him to expand his brand to Volusia County in 2012. From humble beginnings of a driven loan officer in a 200 sq ft executive office suite with just he and a loan processor, he grew his branch organically and methodically based on his own core values and desire to build a different kind of mortgage company built by people who care. His vision and leadership has grown the company to 2 locations right here in Volusia county where he now oversees 16 employees, including 11 loan officers. Manny is a firm believer in supporting the Real Estate community and has developed a “Realtor-centric” company culture at Home Team Lending. He is proud to be an active affiliate member in multiple Realtor Associations and is a strong advocate for both the Women’s Council of Realtors and the Young Professionals Networks within Volusia County.Manny enjoys the subtleties of living in the small community of DeLand with his wonderful wife Amanda and their four children: Mia, Tyson, Tucker, & Daisy. When Manny isn’t working he enjoys spending time boating, diving, hunting, and working out at the local gym.
