Jim Aron

After 25 years of touring the world as a professional musician, Jim Aron established the Emeryville office of Pacific Western Mortgage Group in 1992. By 2003, the office was originating in excess of $46,000,000 a year in real estate loans exclusively by word of mouth referral and establishing a reputation of unwavering ethics and a commitment to borrower education. Through Mr. Aron's simple adherence to values and sense of fair play, the office has built thousands of relationships over 27 years. Jim's lifelong involvement in music, theatre and comedy on TV and stage has afforded him a unique perspective on communication, so vital in an industry with a reputation to the contrary.

Jim always listens carefully and responds appropriately with solid honest advice, if you are not used to having fun at your mortgage broker's office, be prepared for a change . . . ooh . . and don't expect him to wear a suit!

Jim's other interests include home renovation and aviation, both as a private pilot and an avid model builder who designs and flies competitively internationally.
