About Gil Faust
For two decades, Gil Faust has helped make the American Dream happen. We originate conventional, FHA, VA and non-conforming loans.
Gil’s experience, proven track record, and calm under pressure have made him a highly sought-after banker in the Bay Area and beyond.
Gil, a California native, graduated from The University of California at Berkeley with a BA in Economics. Prior to becoming a Residential Mortgage Loan Officer in 1993, he worked as a Registered Securities Representative, where he learned the fundamentals of the bond market and how it influences mortgage interest rates.
When going through one of the biggest transactions in life, many people work with an impersonal lender who brokers out to a third party. Gil offers an alternative: as a local, highly accessible mortgage banker who knows the housing environment inside out, he personally guides you through the maze of new regulations, mortgage options, and confusing jargon. By doing this, you’ll understand your options — and will help make a decision for your future.
As a top producer for 20 years, Gil offers cutting-edge expertise of the current lending environment built on a rock solid foundation of experience. He’s ridden the ups and downs of the market, and reassures his clients that they can do the same. In this way, Gil turns a traditional business transaction into a relationship; he says that getting to know and trust each client — and have them trust him — is one of the most enjoyable aspects of his work.
For so many people, owning their own home is a lifelong dream. It’s a symbol of success. I get to be a crucial part of the joy, the fear, and the excitement that goes into that.”
