I have a better picture, more experience and education than most of the people you will meet in the business with over 28 years of experience in the finance and real estate industries. I truly enjoy helping people find the best mortgage financing solutions for their needs. Most of all, I understand that your time is valuable and I can offer tailored, personalized mortgage assistance in Hawaii.
I grew up in Southern California and was raised in real estate. My parents were both brokers and licensed since the 1970’s. After graduation from the University of California, Irvine, I dove into the industry full speed in 1990. working in several facets of the real estate industry and eventually finding my passion in mortgage lending. From Escrow to real estate sales to mortgage processing and underwriting, I have been involved in every aspect of the business and, in particular, the Hawaiian landscape since 1997. I strive to take care of your financing the same way I would take care of my own and I have high expectations and I know Hawaii.
These days you need someone to help you understand the entire picture and offer you pertinent advice. The internet is great, but having someone who will take care of you through the whole transaction and beyond is the benefit of working with me. I also offer you the most competitive rates in the industry and the absolute best customer service. Call me today! I look forward to assisting you with your real estate financing needs.

“Ginger (Allstar Mortgage) goes over and beyond what you would expect from a mortgage broker. I worked in the real estate industry for years and she is by far the best I have ever worked with. I used her services for my refinance and now a new construction loan and didn’t have to worry about a thing. She has been on top of everything and her attention to detail and customer service surpassed my expectations. She will get you the best possible rate and close your loan fast! She is both knowledgeable and experienced. I have already referred her to my sister and I will continue to refer her to my family and friends. I highly recommend Ginger for all your home financing needs!”
-LeeAnne Greeson, Solar City Representative, Kailua Kona

Mortgages have changed a great deal over the past decade and Ginger has consistently delivered quality customer service and great advice. Thanks for all your help, Allstar Mortgage!"

-Jennifer and Steve, Waialua, Oahu
Thank you for your excellent service on our mortgage! We were so pleased with your level of service and get-it-done style. You took the worries away from us in what could have been a very stressful process. As we were considered foreigners (Canadian), buying a Hawaii home had extra challenges. We were really impressed with how well you knew the steps to getting this very specific mortgage done. You seemed to easily navigate all challenges and kept our worries minimized. In the end, we have a dream home in Kailua-Kona with an ocean view. We are happy to point our friends your way when they're buying homes. "
-Randall Shirley & Denni Danieli-Polloni, Kailua Kona
Facebook is reminding me that it's been 3 years since I retired and moved to Hawaii. Sylvester and I love living here, and especially our condo and our complex. Our most recent neighbors have this crazy story about moving to the island and their home purchase falling through, having to live in a noisy vacation complex for awhile, then having to liquify assets to purchase with cash because they couldn't get a loan. It makes me so thankful that I found you - when my own bank wouldn't give me a loan because the condo wasn't expensive enough, and a local bank would have charged a WAY higher interest rate. My real estate agent said something like "I hear there's a 'Ginger' who people say can do it (get a good loan when I was getting frustrated)." Yup, you're known in our complex for getting the job done. And I'm glad I continue to see you in the community, especially at the canoe club. Happy paddling!
