It might sound like a cliche, but…
I’m truly passionate about real estate
Thanks so much for stopping by today. 👋
I’m Scott Griffin, and I’d love to take a moment to share my background with you — and hopefully also share my enthusiasm for the unique, exciting California real estate market!
I’ve been a champion for homeowners’ rights and mortgage industry reform for a long time. As the 2016-2017 President of the California Association of Mortgage Professionals, I’ve made it my daily work to engage with industry leaders, regulatory bodies, and homebuyers alike.
My work as president of the association earned me the prestigious 2016 Broker of the Year Award, an honor I gratefully accepted.
I’ve traveled as close as Sacramento and as far as Washington, D.C. to speak to members of Congress and the Senate on housing reform. My advocacy, influence, and passion have helped transform many key reforms in the mortgage industry into law.
This work has gotten me and my team recognized by U.S. Congressman Gary Miller, California State Senator Mike Morrell, and California State Congressman Bill Dodd — all of whom work to support this thriving industry.
I truly love helping property owners connect with the right funding at the right time to make their ownership dreams come true.
Oh, and here’s the cheerful face I can promise you if you ever hop on a call with me or visit our Los Angeles brokerage!
How I got here…
I began my career in 1986 as a residential property specialist. My focus was on leasing and managing large luxury apartment communities for real estate investment management firms, such as Kennedy Wilson, Heitman and JMB Properties.
After that, I moved on to become a mortgage loan agent, and was quickly promoted to branch management of Peachtree Financial. These experiences helped shape my understanding of the real estate and mortgage industries (and also helped open my eyes to their vast opportunities)!
In 2003, I opened my namesake mortgage brokerage in Los Angeles, later expanding to offices in San Diego and Palm Springs.
Currently, Scott Griffin Financial specializes in A’ Paper Jumbo Loans for clients who are self-employed or in the entertainment industry. I’m proud to say that our work has funded more than $831 million in purchase and refinance home loans over just the past eight years!
