After being in the insurance industry for a while, helping families and individuals primarily with their insurance, I decided to come work for Jerry Ellis and his agency! I met Jerry through my father-in-law, Vince Chacon (who is a mortgage banker with the Chacon Team at Sente Mortgage). Vince has known and has been friends with Jerry for the better part of his life. After learning about the customer service and support, product options, and how EIA was just doing it better than the rest in the industry, I wanted to be a part of it!
I am happily married to my beautiful wife, Anne Elizabeth, (who is also a mortgage banker with the Chacon Team)! We have three children – Judah, Petra, and Eden!Read Bio
