Amy Yamamoto is the Branch Director and Senior Loan Consultant for Nor Cal Mortgage of Marin, located in San Rafael, CA.  She specializes in helping her clients with residential mortgages to purchase new homes or to refinance their existing homes.  She operates at the highest level of integrity and customer service and has been in the business for 15 years.  She prides herself on not having offered sub-prime or extremely risky mortgage products during the “loose” years in the mortgage market, which is one reason why she’s still going strong.

Amy measures her success not in dollars, but in the smiles on her clients’ faces when their loans fund.  She is proud to say that the majority of her business comes from past clients and their referrals.  She is featured in San Francisco Magazine’s 2014 list of Five Star Mortgage Professionals and has received numerous awards for production and client satisfaction from her parent company.
