Pickett Street Properties is dedicated to serving the community and is highlighting businesses and community members that are dedicated to doing the same. This week we are excited to share from our very own preferred lender, Cody Touchette!
My story really starts before I became a mortgage professional. I graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in finance and put that to use by managing a jewelry store for a large national company. I enjoyed that position for a few years, was awarded a few promotions, but eventually found myself bored. Two things happened that drove me to begin my mortgage career. First, I bought my first house and thought the mortgage process could have been way easier and smoother than what I had experienced. Second, I saw a friend over the holidays who was a mortgage broker and he gave me the encouragement I needed to try it out. The rest is history!
I currently run a team of nine amazing and talented mortgage professionals, The Touchette Team, at Caliber Home Loans, Inc. We work in mortgage lending, purchase, refinancing and investment strategies. Our team’s mission is two-part: help people attain the dream of homeownership and then change their financial future by investing in real estate.
There are definitely ups and downs to the mortgage business, but what I love most about what I do is educating people and breaking myths around real estate mortgage and leveraging capital. My passion lies with helping people to dominate their financial future by investing in real estate. My inspiration comes from the “aha” moments where my clients realize the benefits and reap the rewards of our advice and service. I also continually find motivation and inspiration from my own investment portfolio. I’m always trying new things and learning every step of the way so that I can continually provide valuable insights to my clients.
I’ve had several mentors and business coaches over the years, but one in particular stands out. My manager and friend, Brady Yeager. He’s helped me grow my business and be a better leader for my team. A word of advice: get a mentor and get a coach, or ten. Business coaching has kept me accountable to reaching every one of my goals.
