I have worked in the mortgage industry for nearly two decades, and having weathered the financial and mortgage collapse of 2008, I feel I have come full circle.
After graduating from the University of San Diego with a degree in Communications, I moved my family and four kids to Phoenix where I spent five years learning the business and developing relationships necessary for success. In 1998, I helped open one of Arizona’s most prominent mortgage brokers Olympic Mortgage. With two fundamental goals, to treat our employees like family and always strive to exceed our customer’s expectations, we played ball.
Ten years later, we went looking for a partner in the industry that mirrored our commitment to excellence and found VIP. The company’s plan is simple: Grow our business by caring for our people and exceeding our client’s expectations. This dedication has never wavered.
I am very involved in youth sports having coached a variety of teams in soccer, softball, football and basketball. I also love golfing and skiing.More about The O'Connell Group
