As the Managing Director and Senior Loan Advisor of the Napa and Solano County offices, Nolan prides himself on the work he has done and the relationships he has built with literally thousands of clients during his 25-year career. He is grateful for the trust that clients have repeatedly placed in him and his team. Nolan has experienced nearly every type of market and transaction scenario possible and he has had the joy in helping many people who thought home ownership and its financial rewards were out of reach.
Nolan is an Opes Personal Finance Advisor and brings a thorough understanding of both the real estate market, and mortgage products and programs that are its driving engine, and how this asset class fits into an overall financial analysis. Nolan shows his clients how real estate as an asset class affects personal and family goals such as retirement, college planning for children, and debt and credit management. Nolan understands you have choices when it comes to the source of your real estate financing.
While an important factor, price is not everything. Bad advice or lack of understanding or disclosure by your lender can, in the end, cost you far more than the few dollars difference at the closing table. You deserve sound financial advice and competitive rates and terms. Nolan continually undergoes rigorous training and education and adheres to a strict code of ethics. This is why over 90% of his business is repeat and referred clients.
Nolan worked early in his career as a top producing loan officer for major banks including First Interstate Bank, Home Savings of America, Washington Mutual and Bank of America. He eventually recognized that he wanted to do more for his clients than what the corporate bank structure could offer. In 2001 he founded Nor Cal Home Loans to do just that and successfully ran this mortgage company for 10 years.
Nolan is a member of the California Association of Mortgage Professionals, the National Association of Mortgage Brokers and affiliate member of the Northern Solano County Association of Realtors and North Bay Association of Realtors.
Life outside the office keeps Nolan quite busy spending quality time with his wife and four children. He is active in ecclesiastical leadership and serves in local leadership for the Boy Scouts of America. He also loves coaching his son’s soccer team. While mortgage lending may be his profession, his passion is flying. Nolan is an instrument-rated private pilot and flies his own plane out of the Nut Tree Airport in Vacaville.
