Char Ruppel

Branch Manager

I was raised in a city named Garden Grove in Orange County, CA. My mother is from Chicago, Illinois and my father was from San Diego. I am one of six children, and I have over 25 family members still residing in Orange County. I attended a very well recognized high school in Orange County, Mater Dei. I received an athletic scholarship and attended the University of Northern Colorado. I joined The mortgage industry in 2005 after being in Enterprise Technology sales for many years in San Francisco. I have an amazing wife, and we have been married for eleven years. We have two incredible children that are eight and six. I enjoy coaching my children in sports, traveling, and being outdoors. I love helping clients reach their goal of homeownership and becoming their lifelong mortgage advisor.

As a lifelong athlete, I know that teamwork is essential to achieve your goals. With that in mind, I have assembled an amazing team to help homeowners and realtors improve their lives with homeownership.

Tony Nicosia

Business Consultant
Since a young age, I have wanted to find a way to not only help people but, have a lasting impact on their lives. People spend the greater majority of their time on this earth working. Like everyone I have interacted with, I have wanted to enjoy my life and by extension my work. For me, doing everything I can to help someone realize their business dreams allows me to live out my purpose. Business and all of its intricacies were my first fascination and quite frankly obsession. Helping people thrive doing what they love has become my passion.



Dennis Becerra

Marketing Specialist
I am Mexican proud, and family means the world to me. From my young age, my parents taught me that you always have to make yourself heard to change the world that you want to see. My dad has always been an advocate for democracy and justice. My amazing mother is a fighter, supporting her family in so many ways that are too many to list. I can tell you that they made me the best person that I am.
