A career as a stock broker brought Drew to California from Chicago in 1990 and led to a position in Private Banking at Wells Fargo. After 15 years and two significant market crashes, he looked for something with more stability.
In 2005, on the same day his wife Liz took leave to have their first child, he resigned his position and together founded what was to become Del Toro Loan Servicing, Inc. Over the years, Drew has developed relationships with some of the best people in the industry. Personally and professionally these clients and vendors have become very important to him.
Recently Drew is in demand as a consultant to investors and brokers and expert witness to law firms.
