Garrett graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a double major in Business Finance and Business Operations Management. He was offered a full-time position within the mortgage industry and was set on relocating to Chicago — until Sam Hansen intervened.
After his meeting with Sam, Garrett decided to join the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team and says he made the absolute right decision. “We have so much fun, and we work so hard,” he says. “The number of things I’ve learned here by far surpasses what I could have learned anywhere else.”
The single most important thing to Garrett is his family. “I am a huge family man, and nothing makes me happier than when I am with them,” he says. He particularly loves their annual snowboarding trips to the mountains.
Garrett has grown tremendously from a newbie in the mortgage industry to our team sales manager in four short years. In addition to supporting our team members, Garrett is also the first point of contact to pre-approve, educate, and advise clients.
Garrett’s challenge-oriented nature and competitiveness allows him to find the best possible solution for clients. “In any tough situation, I can and will find a way to make things better,” he says. “No loan is the same, and being able to diagnose what a client needs and find a solution for them is a great feeling.”
While he is driven by a need to succeed, Garrett is also a team player who says leading our team motivates him to do the best possible job. “Every day I am excited to come to work because of the team we have,” he says. “The American Dream is to have home ownership and we get to help people achieve that every day.”

Greg is known as “Mr. Personality”! He is a big teddy bear that brings fun and happiness to those around him. He loves kids and is a big kid himself. He and his wife, Stephanie, had their first child – a boy named Austin – in 2013, and their second – a girl named Samantha – in 2015.

We’re pretty sure Jeff was a sports page in another life. Two of his favorite hobbies include golfing and going to the horse races at Del Mar, but he can join nearly every current sports topic with ease. In his free time, you can catch him most likely making witty jokes at as many live sporting events that he can get to.
Jeff was born and raised in San Diego and loved growing up in the Scripps Ranch area. This left-handed native says, “I loved the sense of community and how you’d always see a friendly face anywhere you went.” We certainly see these values shine through when he’s in the office, as he always warmly greets his teammates.
He’s also no stranger to work-ethic. He obtained a work permit and started his first job on Jack in the Box on his 15th birthday, the first legal day he could work. How’s that for drive and dedication?
Jeff joined the Gaylord-Hansen Team in 2018 after six years in the mortgage industry as an assistant, loan processor, and originator. His honesty and communication are some of his greatest strengths in his current role as a Mortgage Expert. He’s always looking at the bigger picture and is extremely in tune with what’s happening in the markets.
He is very talented at educating and building trust with his clients. “Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in your life and it is important to go in confident and informed,” he says. “Our team prides ourselves on educating our clients and that is one of the many reasons I enjoy working here.”
We’re lucky to have Jeff and his strong work-ethic on our team!
Although a good portion of her career has been spent in processing and underwriting, Jody has been flourishing as a Pre-Approval Expert with the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team. She started in this industry in 2000 and was fortunate enough to meet Sam and Bill early on, working with the two prior to our team being formed. In 2007, she made the tough decision to change her career path, entered beauty school, and became a licensed hairstylist. She missed the fast pace of mortgage, though, and found herself back working in the industry after a few years. When Sam and Bill asked her to be a part of the team in 2014, she jumped at the chance to work with them again, and as Jody puts it: “It was extremely fitting for me to come back.” We are so glad she did!
Jody is a San Diego native who travels often, especially to the Caribbean. She also enjoys volunteering at the local animal shelter in her spare time to give back to the community. She loves cats, Mexican food, and exploring new places. On weekends, she can be found at the beach or on the patio of a local restaurant with a drink in hand enjoying the great weather & spending time with friends.
John is our charismatic and dedicated family man born and raised in Indiana. He is one of six siblings and grew up spending his summers and winters near Lake Michigan in a town called Long Beach. After 22 years of raising his family in the New York City area, John and his wife Karin packed up, headed straight to San Diego and never looked back– so starts the new adventure!
While John has deep roots on the East Coast, we are thrilled that he chose California and even more so that fate brought him to our door. Just don’t ask him who his favorite baseball team is…that’s, unfortunately, one loyalty that we might never win!
Since John is on the front line with the homebuyer, he always remains committed to making the process as simple and transparent as possible. Having experience as a buyer and a seller in over five states, John understands how impactful each home loan can be, and without fail, he approaches every step down the line with true composure and care.
Throw John whatever curveball, slider, or cutter have, and we can guarantee he’ll hit it out of the park each time.

Back in 1990, he started two new San Diego businesses: a real estate company and a mortgage company. With the two in tandem, he was able to assist his clients by providing the best service, all under one roof. How’s that for ambition?
