I believe real estate creates security and security creates peace of mind.
Security |Family |Knowledge
No matter how big or how small, how fancy or how modest, having four walls and a roof over your head is not only a great investment; It is the foundation to personal security and peace of mind for you and your family. As a certified mortgage planning specialist and real estate developer, I pride myself in paying-it-forward by sharing my knowledge and experience with like-minded individuals, so I can be the best possible resource for YOU!
Other things about me:
- My girlfriend and I co-parent our furry four-legged cat daughter, Luci.
- Hosting, cooking and everything wine.
- Performing Arts – Rossini’s “Barber of Seville” is my favorite Opera.
- Playing dominoes with my dad and two brothers. It’s like a WWIII escalation with a peaceful resolution after everyone wins at least one game.
During the financial crisis of 2007-08, my older brother and I built, designed and managed a very successful and intimate nightclub in Scottsdale, AZ for 4 years. Our main focus was booking world class celebrity DJ’s… AKA “YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR MIND”. We basically broke even during those special nights, but it sure gave us national recognition and we put a big smile on our patrons while having a fantastic time!

“Apolo is incredibly smart and innovative. He is a true partner when it comes to listening, educating, and getting to the finish line. He is kind and authentic. He is patient when needed, and a truly motivated go-getter with perfect timing when the pressure is on. His knowledge goes beyond book smarts – he is an experienced professional and investor, which is evident when doing business with him. He is not “just” a numbers guy. I highly recommend doing business with him!” – Tamara Mora, March 21, 2020

Frequently Asked Questions
The total number of properties you may look at will depend on several factors, such as your budget and the housing availability in your area. In general, real estate agents recommend that homebuyers look at several properties before making a decision, but there is not an exact number. Most people look at 10 homes, at a minimum, so they can compare them. However, you may find the dream house with more or fewer searches.
When it comes to the best home buying tips, there are different ways to search for properties. Statistics from the National Association of REALTORS® reveal that 51 percent of buyers searched and found their homes on the internet, while 30 percent used real estate agents. Other ways to search for homes include asking friends, relatives, neighbors and homebuilders for help. A small percentage of homebuyers used newspaper advertisements and yard or open house signs to search for homes.
Although a pre-approval is not one of the required steps to buying a house, it can certainly help you stand out in a competitive market with many buyers. A pre-approval can show sellers that you’re serious and capable of getting a mortgage, so they may be more likely to accept your offer.
