1. What differentiates Walton Funding from other mortgage brokers and banks?
Speed - we close in less than 30 days
Options - we represent the full market
Service - our borrowers are busy....we do the heavy lifting for them
2. What do you love about your job?
By far its been our ability to be impactful in our community. I started this company to bring more favorable lending products and service to the market and I feel like we have been successful in doing that.
3. Favorite restaurants in the area?
George's (I eat no less than 3 Salmon BLTs per week)
4. Favorite way to spend a Saturday?
I usually get up before everyone else in the house and knock out a long run. These days we've enjoyed watching or son, Hux, play soccer in mid mornings. After that, we usually get smoothies from either For the Health of It or Raw and Juicy. The rest of the day is a steady rotation of us watching football, hitting the beach with the fam, or dialing in the wedge game.
5. You are very involved in the community...any particular events that you look forward to every year?
30A Wine Festival at Alys is always a great weekend, and for a great charity (CVHN). We also enjoy 30A Songwriters and the Seaside Half Marathon.
