A lot of people think that Steve is in the business of just loaning money, but he doesn’t see it that way. He is helping to create the largest single debt that most people will ever have in their lives and he feels a professional and moral obligation to help them manage that debt.
He wants to make sure that the loans that his borrowers choose fits into their short and long term investment goals. As a result he takes a financial planning approach to the mortgage business.
