Opens New Office in Downtown San Diego
Michael S. Rosenbaum has joined First California Mortgage Company as Area Sales Manager and Mortgage Loan Originator opening a new branch office in the Downtown/East Village neighborhood at the Modern TR Office building, suspended above the historic TR Produce warehouse at 406 9th Avenue (9th Ave. and J St.). Mr. Rosenbaum will also continue to lend expertise to key Real Estate professional organizations. He currently serves as an Affiliate Support Committee Member for the Downtown Real Estate Caravan and Metro Real Estate Caravan managing website production, social media and other publishing needs for those groups.
About Michael S. Rosenbaum:
The son of a Real Estate Agent, Rosenbaum has been around the real estate industry nearly all his life including an early career innovating technology for the industry. He began originating loans in 2006 and has brought his team to First California Mortgage Company to expand their existing boutique residential lending platform. Says Rosenbaum, “the diversity of products and competitive rates offered by First California Mortgage Company will bring even more benefit to my existing clients, key referral partners and new relationships moving forward.” An advocate of education and community service, Mr. Rosenbaum is an active supporter of the Old Town Academy Charter School where his daughter is thriving as a 2nd grade student. He is also a founding board member and serves currently as CFO of the newly approved Kavod Elementary Charter School, scheduled to open their doors in the fall of 2013. Kavod will be the first dual-language English-Hebrew Charter School in the State of California.
Rosenbaum is often quoted in the press, most recently in an interview with Reuters on an article which explained the hurdles older people and the self-employed face in getting qualified to refinance. The article was syndicated around the world and adds to Rosenbaum’s impressive cache of media outlets including MSN Real Estate.
About First California Mortgage Company:
Now entering its 28th year of operation, First California Mortgage Company has funded more than $450 billion in residential loans in California as First California Mortgage Company and nationally as Mortgage Service America. Originally founded in 1977, the two companies grew to employ 2,800 people in 108 offices in 42 states. In 1986 the firm expanded its operations, opening a wholesale division called Headlands Mortgage. First California Mortgage Company sold its loan and servicing operations to GMAC (currently Homecomings Financial) in 1995. Three years later, Headlands was taken public (NASDAQ: HDLD) prior to being sold to GreenPoint Mortgage in 1999. First Cal resumed mortgage lending operations in 2003 to serve the needs of mortgage brokers and retail borrowers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its wholesale operations now extend to Northern and Southern California, managed from its headquarters in Petaluma. The company remains privately owned.

I am proud to share that I was quoted in today’s MSN Real Estate’s cover story by Marilyn Lewis about reducing the term of your mortgage and saving money at the same time. This may seem like a strange concept, but in certain situations, this is entirely possible, especially with mortgage loan rates at record lows.
