Since 2001, I have been originating mortgages for thousands of clients across the United States. I have held numerous roles in the mortgage business and am passionate about helping clients achieve homeownership while providing top-notch service. As a mortgage broker with vast industry experience, I am confident that First Coast Mortgage consistently delivers the best rates with the best cost structure with our access to multiple lenders. I pride myself on being an expert and passing that knowledge onto my staff to best serve Northeast Florida.
I am originally from Ohio and now live in historic St. Augustine with my wife Tira, daughter Julia, son Jay and our two dogs Puggles and Catalina. When I am not helping people achieve their home buying dreams, you can find me honing in on sports, especially football and boxing.
I have been originating mortgages for thousands of clients since my career began in 1997. My journey in the mortgage business started more than 24 years ago in my hometown of Gainesville, Florida. After a brief time in Jacksonville, Florida, my family moved to Northern Virginia where I was a mortgage loan officer for many years. In 2009, my family moved back to Florida and I’ve continued working in the mortgage business in Ponte Vedra Beach ever since. My motto is, “Let’s start fast and finish slow.” Being proactive is the best way to make the mortgage process simple.
The homebuying journey can be a challenging process for buyers. My greatest sense of accomplishment comes from guiding clients through that journey, and seeing how happy and excited they are to have a place they can call their own!
Not only am I known as a top producer in the mortgage industry, but I’m also known for my incredible organizational skills, commitment to excellence and the ability to simplify the home loan process for my customers.
I am an Auburn University graduate and live in Nocatee, Florida with my wife of 20 years and three children. Coaching my children’s sports teams is my main passion outside of work, though I do love playing golf and going fishing when I get a free moment.
Since 2015, I’ve guided thousands of families through the lending process, with a personalized game plan and stress-free experience. My mission is to provide a streamlined process for every client, allowing them to focus on the many other details associated with buying a new home.
Since 2018 I’ve been nationally recognized in Scotsman Guide’s top 1% of Mortgage Originators and included in the Northeast Florida Builder Association’s Million Dollar Circle. I couldn’t have accomplished this without the trust and support of my clients, their family and friends. Logistically, I’d credit these recognitions to my communication, organization, and transparency. I also credit my Digital Marketing Degree from Florida State College, for giving me a tech savvy edge for clients who prefer that type of experience.
My husband Rocko and I just finished building our new home in St. John’s county, which has given me the insight to truly understand my client’s home building experience. Our house full of love also includes our one-year-old daughter Riley, two dogs, Sadie and Winston, and our cat, Melvin. I’m looking forward to serving the families of our community for many years to come.

George’s favorite role thus far has been being in direct contact with the homebuyers, helping them achieve the goal of home ownership through financing. In his opinion, there is nothing more rewarding than taking the financial portion of the homebuying process off everyone’s plate so they can focus on other things, knowing that he has the loan part completely taken care of.
