Why we should work together
The Musha Family
loanDepot congratulates Michael for his ranking as a Mortgage Executive Magazine Top Originator. He has also been recognized as one of the top performing Loan Consultants at loanDepot as a proud member of the Chairman's Elite.
With over 20 years in the financial industry and more than 15 years specializing in home solutions, today Michael is helping others realize their potential through real estate, as a trusted advisor and lending professional with loanDepot. He is detail-oriented, proactive and operates with a genuine sense of accountability and purpose.
Michael launched his professional career in the restaurant industry, quickly moving from an entry-level job into a managerial position. "I really enjoyed the opportunity to help develop people," he recalls. "It was so gratifying to assist others in finding their own paths to success." While majoring in Finance and Business in college, he worked as a financial services analyst, assisting clients in moving beyond personal debt. He then transitioned into the mortgage industry, where his personable approach and business savvy proved the ideal foundation upon which to build his career.
After a turn in the retail and builder sections, Michael returned to his roots in residential lending. He thrives in his consultative role, and appreciates the trust and confidence his clients and industry partners place in his services. Readily connecting with consumers and agents alike, he operates with efficiency and facilitates open and ongoing communication. "In the end," he explains, "my role is to correctly and effectively service the needs of my clients."
Michael is an empathetic professional who identifies the value of each person with whom he works, rather than simply putting together numbers. He is sensitive to cultural differences, celebrating the traits that make each client unique. "At the heart of it all we share universal truths," he observes. "Good business is conducted in relationships between people, where respect, communication and a symbiotic approach make the difference."
His clients agree. "Michael was exceptional," note the Herringtons. "He made the process so easy and painless, and always kept us in the loop of what was happening with our loan and what to expect next." Remarking on his outstanding follow-through the Herringtons add, "When everything was done and we moved into our new house, Michael showed up just to make sure everything was okay."
Michael specializes in meeting the needs of a culturally diverse population at every stage of real estate. From first-time buyers to seasoned investors, he delves into the process to identify each client's short- and long term goals, and to map a course designed to achieve their objectives. He joined loanDepot in mid-2012, and asserts that the company offers the support, services and products needed to succeed in a still-transitioning marketplace.
He is eternally optimistic, a believer in the value of positivity whose attitude is infectious. Michael is a thorough professional who values the opportunity to capitalize on success for himself and others. He's a competitor, too; a fierce warrior with a heart of gold. Michael has competed in organized athletics programs and is a talented violinist.
Reflecting on the projected course of his career, Michael is unwavering in his vision. "Success is earned," he states. "I'm not afraid to make something happen for myself or my clients. I believe that every challenge has a solution, and I work hard to ensure that I'm able to implement the solutions my clients need to reach their goals.
When considering the purchase of a new home, refinancing or obtaining additional property, please contact Michael for a personalized mortgage plan.

Michael, Marissa, and the team were great to work with. It takes a well running team to get a loan to closing and we felt everyone on ours went the distance to get us a timely closing with the least amount of hassle. They were always there to answer our questions and kept us updated on the progress of our loan. Throughout the process we felt we were in good hands. It was a pleasure working with them.

From the beginning Michael was incredibly helpful, friendly, kind, responsive and him and his team just made the entire process so easy and seamless. They have great technology in place that makes it so easy and convenient to do everything electronically. You would think because we never saw each other in person that the experience wouldn't be the same. But Michael and his team were incredibly warm and friendly and I really felt taken care of. I knew he was working with a ton of other customers but I never felt neglected. I would definitely recommend to all to get your loan through Michael.

Michael and his team were fantastic throughout our homebuying process. Him and his team explained every step of the way from qualification to final funding. His team also worked seamlessly with our escrow officer and clarified what to expect from our escrow process as well. Michael made sure to personally touch bases with us to ensure we understood what was going on at all times. We felt he was openly honest and sincerely cared about our needs as homebuyers. Ultimately, our funding was completed in a timely manner and our home closed exactly on time with slightly better loan terms than we expected.

Michael and his team at Loan Depot were fantastic to work with! We bought a new construction home which can be dynamic in terms of the property’s progress and loan timing. I would definitely recommend going with the builder’s lender, as you need someone with that particular lender expertise. Specifically, Michael of Loan Depot was very approachable, informative, straightforward and always there for any questions. Although this may be our forever home, Michael will definitely be our go to person for any future lending needs!

This was s quick smooth process. Not my typical experience when home buying. Mike Encarnacion and tem were the best. I am using them for my next home purchase as well.

Michael was great. We used him to refinance our mortgage, and he got us a great deal. He was always available and patient and always took the time to explain things in debt when we needed him to.
