This week’s guest is Blake Bianchi, up and coming Loan Consultant and an innovative young industry catalyst. Growing up, he was surrounded with family in the mortgage industry and was very familiar with the business. His father, John Bianchi, was one of the top producing loan originators in the country, and one of Geoff’s early bosses from his time at Countrywide. At Blake’s first position in the industry as a Production Partner for one of the highest producing lenders in the company, he learned a lot and learned quickly. Through the knowledge Blake gained as a Production Partner he went on to become Loan Consultant at Caliber Home Loans, and currently works as an area manager for Loan Factory, Inc.
