Lisa Parks Ferro
Over a decade of experience working as a mortgage broker in Folsom gave Lisa Ferro the knowledge of what people were lacking and what they desired from a mortgage company. Her vision of creating a company that could deliver a small town personal feel, while offering products more vast than any one retail bank could offer, fueled her desire to open The Blue Waters Group. “The beauty of being a mortgage broker is that our product options are not restricted by one bank’s limitations. We can offer products from dozens of banks and quickly adjust and grow our product availability. It makes sense in order to best serve our client’s wide variety of needs.” From this philosophy, Lisa and her business partner founded the Blue Waters Mortgage and Real Estate Group Inc. in 2012.
Lisa Ferro delivers service and personal accountability at a level far superior to the common standard in the lending industry. Of utmost importance to Lisa is that she earns her clients’ trust before expertly guiding them through the biggest monetary decisions of their lifetimes. Developing confidence and sincere lasting relationships is what Lisa values most. “It’s not just number crunching and problem solving; my job is improving people’s financial position. Clients count on me to deliver and I take that very seriously.” Lisa’s clients appreciate this and the community has recognized her superior level of service through her 2016 Award as a Five Star Mortgage Professional given by Sacramento Magazine.
The Blue Waters Group is designed to offer all types of financing products: Conventional, Jumbo, VA, FHA, and out-of-the-box lending. Lisa also identified a need in the community to assist clients that have unusually challenging situations. “Many clients are self-employed, had short sales or foreclosures during the economic downturn or had to file bankruptcy. They have been turned down at other institutions. We have options for them and we are tenacious at working to provide a great loan in these complex situations.”
Relocating from the Bay Area in the early 90’s, Lisa fell in love with the Folsom and Sacramento area. She shares her life with a wonderful husband and two beautiful “full of life” teenage daughters. Her oldest daughter is off to college soon and her younger will be entering her senior year in high school. When Lisa is not working she enjoys traveling, hiking, gardening and creating new healthy recipes in the kitchen. “One of the greatest pleasures in my career is making a personal connection with my clients, their families, and their stories. Understanding how my clients’ financing needs reflect their larger dreams and goals; my work takes on a deep sense of fulfillment and purpose.”
