My name is Tony Mariotti and I own and operate this website. Why? Because people have a lot of questions about mortgages. Blogging is a way to provide answers to common mortgage questions thoroughly. Today, people want to read and research online before talking with a loan officer (or anyone else involved in a real estate transaction for that matter).I spent eighteen years in Silicon Valley and Los Angeles helping build successful tech companies. Mortgages and finance happen to be some of my favorite topics. In my spare time, I hike, bike and practice yoga. I don’t own a tie, very proudly I might add. Feel free get in touch if I can help you with a loan!
