Andrea Christenot | Senior Loan Officer


About: Originally from the greatest state of Montana, Andrea "Andy" moved to Los Angeles in 1996 to attend college at California State University Long Beach after attending high school in Palm Desert, CA. Pursuing a degree in History, with a vision of attending Law School, Andy was given her first opportunity in Real Estate Finance/Mortgage Lending in 1998. Enduring several months of training to learn the lending business, she began her career as a Retail Loan Officer with Long Beach Mortgage Company. Her success came immediately and quickly opened the door to other opportunities in the lending industry. For several years Andy worked her way up the corporate ranks in both Sales and in Operations, receiving awards and recognition at the Executive level. When the economy crashed in 2007/2008, Andy made the decision to go back to her Retail roots and began working directly with clients/buyers and Real Estate Agents, instead of Mortgage Brokers. She's spent the last 10 years servicing her clients and building her business based on referrals. Helping people achieve home ownership is what she does and has done it well for over 20 years.

Specialties: Andrea "Andy" is fantastic at making things work for each client. She understands that every client's scenario is different and structuring each loan based on the client's needs is critical to her business. Whether a client is ready immediately or whether they hope to buy a home in several months, Andy specializes in building the relationship with her clients and coming up with a "game plan" based on each clients individual needs. Buying a home can be immediate if someone is qualified, but it can also be a process and take months depending on a client's situation. Walking clients through the process, while maintaining constant communication with their Real Estate Agent is how Andy has set herself apart from other mortgage lending professionals.
