Angela is not your typical mortgage professional. Her mission is to raise the standards for the value and guidance mortgage professionals bring to their clients. When other mortgage professionals stop at telling their clients what they CAN qualify for, Angela's goal is to educate and empower her clients to help them move beyond that to discover the choices they SHOULD make regarding what is in their overall best interest around their real estate, borrowing, and mortgage decisions.
She also doesn’t consider her job done once the loan closes like most mortgage professionals. Angela understands the transformative value that her ongoing guidance and support can bring to her clients, and she is here to partner with them, year in and year out, through the following 30+ years of their homeownership journey.
As a Mortgage and Liability Advisor and Financial Educator, Angela adopts a comprehensive and collaborative approach, considering her clients' entire financial landscape, dreams, goals, and relationship with money.
This approach enables her to effectively empower and educate her clients so that they can make informed and confident decisions on how to borrow and repay their debts and successfully manage their responsibilities as homeowners.
After closing, Angela proactively guides her clients, year after year, helping them set and achieve financial dreams and goals while building lasting financial security. Together, they develop a customized real estate roadmap to protect and grow their wealth and maintain their real estate to increase its value over time.
Angela's journey in finance began as a Financial Professional after graduating from Colorado State University in 2007. That experience shaped her philosophy of the need to understand the complete financial picture to deliver maximum value and guidance.
In 2011, she entered the real estate investing world, at which point Angela also obtained her real estate license. In 2013, she transitioned to the lending side where she became a key member of several top-producing teams, giving her invaluable knowledge and experience early in her career that many only acquire throughout a long and successful career.
Born and raised in Colorado, Angela is a devoted mother and wife, dedicated to providing love, compassion, and guidance to those she serves. She believes that financial well-being and independence are achievable for everyone with the right guidance and support.
Beyond mortgages and family time, Angela serves as the Vice President of the Board for At Un/Do: Rethink Your Thinking, where they empower minds and transform lives by teaching universal mindset strategies to help individuals thrive at any life stage. She is also a faculty member with The National Institute of Financial Education, advocating for unbiased consumer education on finances and homeownership.
Regardless of where you or your clients are on the homeownership journey, Angela would love to connect to explore how she can help!
Since 1998, Trevor Hammond has helped thousands of families finance their homes and make smart decisions when it comes to their personal finances.
Now, as a sought-after mortgage advisor, coach, speaker, and author, Trevor Hammond continues to focus on helping people enjoy more money, less stress, and more life!
In 2005, it became extremely clear to Trevor that homeowners across the country were making huge mistakes when it came to borrowing money, and managing their cash flow and other liabilities. “I remember the first time I learned that less than 10% of people in America had a financial planner. That meant nearly 90% of everyone who either owned a house or was hoping to buy a house, had nobody helping them make smart financial decisions. So I decided I was going to fill that critical void and become a financial resource to my clients,” he says.
Since that turning point, Trevor has created unique financial coaching programs and spoken in front of thousands of people on topics ranging from improving cash flow and savings, to managing liabilities, to advanced real estate financing strategies for homeowners. He has written hundreds of financial articles, and in 2007 co-authored the book, Borrow Smart, Retire Rich. Then in 2010 he wrote, How to Avoid the Four Blind Spots on Your Road to Financial Independence.
Time is our most valuable resource, according to Trevor. “While most mortgage companies and lenders spend their time, and their client’s valuable time, discussing mortgage products, rates, and fees… I believe people truly prefer to spend time discussing their financial future and ways to improve it.” This philosophy has led to the development of a very unique lending process for clients that quickly transforms the way they view their mortgage and their money.
Trevor believes, “Confidence is the key to everything. My job is to help clients gain the clarity and confidence needed to achieve their goals. And their goals are rarely about mortgages, rates, or fees… they are always about a bigger, better future, and achieving greater freedom with both their time and money. That’s what I do every day and I love it!”
