WVBE Founder

I started this group last September after moving to Arizona from California. I’m a native of AZ but spent the last 4 years in the Bay Area. When I moved there originally, I was a very small fish in a HUGE pond when it came to mortgage lending. It was overwhelming and quite discouraging at first. I realized that the greatest way for me to build my business in an atmosphere like this was one step at a time. I met a real estate agent who ran a networking group and the lender seat had recently come available. I have to admit, I was nervous about speaking in public and quite fearful of the idea of presenting. I knew I had to start somewhere so I accepted the invitation. It didn’t take long before I realized that building a successful, long-term business would come one relationship at a time.

When I moved back to Arizona, I knew that the momentum that I created I did not want to lose. I searched for a group similar in value and significance that I had in CA but couldn’t find anything in the West Valley that I felt achieved both qualities. I decided to capture a few of my most trusted colleagues and start West Valley Business Exchange. We’re a new group in the area but already deep, trusted relationships are being built and businesses are thriving.
