Senior Loan Officer

Kevin Kueneke

Detail oriented Mortgage Advisor with 20+ years of experience and an Economics Degree. Enjoys surfing, skiing, and spending time with his daughter and two Labrador Retrievers. NMLS # 284800


Born and raised in the Midwest, Kevin graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1993 with a degree in Economics. After graduation, he immediately jumped into the mortgage industry, specializing in purchase-money loans and refinances including FHA, VA, and Conventional financing.


In 1995 Kevin relocated to North County San Diego where he has continued to have a successful career focused on residential lending. Kevin feels that his best assets are his attention to detail and his ability to listen to his clients. He is customer service oriented and works hard to provide tailored solutions that fit his client’s unique needs.


While technology has changed the way buyers shop for homes, Kevin knows it’s important to continue to include a personal aspect in each loan he works on and enjoys getting to know his borrowers. With more than 20+ years of lending experience, Kevin’s goal is to not just be a client’s lender today, but to become a buyer’s lifelong mortgage resource.


When Kevin is not working, he enjoys an active life surfing, skiing, and competing in triathlons. He also enjoys running on the beach with his daughter, or throwing the ball with his two Labrador Retrievers.

My Mortgage Philosophy Changed…

I’ve been helping people obtain home financing for a very long time. At first, it was all about the numbers. I used my Economics Degree to determine the best mortgage strategy for each client. Today I know that there is also a human element to the home financing process that is priceless…
