Get to Know Galel Fajardo

I'm a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist™, and a REALTOR® Success Coach, specializing in helping my clients put together a mortgage plan and helping them purchase homes. The uniqueness of my practice is that I'm in front of all of my past clients on a yearly basis where my company and I conduct annual mortgage reviews to ensure that their mortgage is putting them on track to achieve their short and long-term financial goals.

The lowest rate on the incorrect strategy can cost thousands of dollars over the life of a loan, so it is vital that someone have a professional managing their family's largest debt.

I need to refer my clients to the top REALTORS®, Financial Planners, Insurance Agents, CPA's, and Estate Planning Attorneys in the area - so if you are accepting business, please contact me so we talk and see if we are a good match to work together!

Coast Mortgage Group now offers small-balance commercial financing as well as reverse mortgages.

My Mortgage Planning Purpose

"As a mortgage planner, I am committed to serving you in helping you make the most informed mortgage decision possible. A mortgage is not just a loan; it is one of your primary financial planning tools.

Unlike a traditional loan officer, my responsibility is to help my clients integrate the loan that they select into their overall long and short-term financial and investment plan to help minimize taxes, improve cash flow and reduce interest expense.

My purpose is to help you create a mortgage strategy that eliminates debt and builds wealth for your family." 

When asked about why he loves his role as a mortgage planner, Galel says that "helping a deserving family purchase a home is one of the most rewarding aspects of (his) career. The files in my office are not 'deals' - they are families who are achieving the American Dream! It sounds like a cliche' but, we literally get to make dreams come true. It's such an exciting experience, and the impact we have on their lives is what makes me passionate about what I do."
