Meet your team


As a Mortgage Loan Originator (The Queen of Finance) and Real Estate Professional, for over twenty years, I have been fortunate to have a front row seat to the power of homeownership.

My commitment to NeighborWorks and the communities we serve, is rooted in my desire to see every family, create legacy, abundance, and generational wealth. Brick by brick, family by family; we as an organization, contribute to making homeownership and wealth building dreams a reality.

As a military veteran, with laser focus on systems, programming, procedure implementation and execution, I lead our team of dedicated professionals with grit and grace.

Together we are the foundation of what California needs to create lasting housing sustainability. We look forward to serving you.


"NeighborWorks gives people the opportunity to create a space for themselves and utilize resources that many aren't aware of. Being a part of an org that provides needed services to an otherwise underserved community is why I'm happy to be a part of their team."

“I am honored to give back to communities that need us the most and be in service to families on their journey to homeownership.”

"A place to call home & obtaining ownership is the foundation. Knowledge of how to get it is the success. To be a part of a team that gets the knowledge to a majority of people that believe it’s an impossibility is the beauty of working at NeighborWorks."

Nadia Faraci

“I am able to assist homeowners with staying in their homes. I also like working in a place where everyone is working as a team.”

“NeighborWorks is a team of servant leaders energized by the shared vision that we must intentionally invest in health, homeownership, entrepreneurship, and access to democracy. Home ownership is a pathway to sustainable living and economic driver for building stronger communities. It is the American Dream for which every person should feel confident and powerful pursuing."
