Jeff Hatz started his career in the mortgage industry in 1987 after graduating from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Finance and Real Estate.
In 1989, he began focusing primarily on new home builders. Jeff has worked as a preferred lender for many large homebuilders over the years including Christopher Homes, Watt Communities, IntraCorp, SeaCountry Homes, Taylor Morrison and Woodbridge Pacific. For many years, he also managed the in-house mortgage departments for Brookfield Homes and Capital Pacific Homes.
Jeff prides himself on his knowledge of guidelines, programs and attention to detail. In this complicated business, it is important to know where the possible “speedbump” may lie. His anticipation of these speedbumps, ability to navigate around them, and specialized knowledge in the nuances of home financing has always been a tremendous benefit to his clients.
Away from the office, Jeff loves spending time with his wife of 29 years (Vicki) and his 4 teenage sons. In his few moments of spare time, you’ll usually find him on the golf course, baseball field, hunting, fishing or at the beach.
Jeff joined loanDepot in 2017 and is thrilled to share an extensive line of products with his clients. You can find Jeff at the San Capistrano branch. Please don’t hesitate to contact him for any of your home financing needs!
