Rodney Kearney

Rodney L. Kearney

Senior Vice-President & Director of Mortgage Lending

Rod Kearney has worked for over 25 years in the Real Estate industry. He originally received his California Real Estate license in 1989 while in Southern California. Immediately he moved into a commercial real estate apprenticeship position with J. T. Graves Commercial Real Estate in Los Angeles Ca, where he learned the “ins-and-out” of the commercial real estate business.  From there he was introduced into the world of Real Estate Financing.

Rodney’s career in mortgage lending spanned over the next 20 years in California with tenures at Countrywide Home Loans and First Magnus Financial Services Inc., as well as partnerships with Charter Funding Inc. For more than seven years He worked exclusively with realtors and major real estate firms as their “In-house” source for real-estate financing.

In 2011, Rodney took a brief leave from the world of real estate to serve as administrator for Metropolitan Fresh Start House Inc., a San Francisco based Non-profit residential program providing for the needs of homeless veterans. He continues to serve in that capacity today as a way of giving back to the community.

Rodney earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from UCLA with emphasis in public law and administration. He has since earned and held several industry licenses and certifications including a California Life & Disability – series 3 license, and a Mortgage Expert certification from Mortgage Educators & Compliance Inc., as well as membership in the National Association of Mortgage Brokers.

Rodney Kearney now brings his wealth of knowledge and experience to In Touch Financial Services as a managing partner over mortgage lending.
