We had the good fortune of connecting with LeRoy Romero and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LeRoy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process and starting my own business was was focused on bringing home ownership education, inspired by the American dream of home ownership with transparency for the clients we serve. with an emphasis and focus on our veterans. being a veteran myself I found it disappointed through the years that there is such a lack of understanding and myths Behind the VA loan which are preventing our veterans from homeownership and building wealth through Real Estate. Ownership of the business comes with many different benefits and challenge one of those which I find most important and rewarding is the control over the Mortgage process such that it’s enjoyable and not as complex as some organizations make it.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
This is a tough question. What sets me aside from anyone else? Genuine transparency and authenticity I would imagine. I’m not the lip service kind of person. And while I want be professional I also like to say it how it is or how I perceive it without censorship. I think in the world of cancel culture we’ve lost the ability to be genuine. Everything is censored nowadays with expression, emotions, or feeling. It’s been lost in my opinion. What am I most proud of? My kids Mylee and Royce. Kids and being a Dad is one of the most rewarding and proud moments of my life. Has my life been easy? No not by a long shot. I’m very fortunate to live here in America when you get the opportunity to learn from your mistakes your failures and keep pushing forward. I think the most important lesson I’ve learned is try to live a life with no regrets even the ones that knock you down where you don’t wanna get back up. What would I want the world to know about my brand or story? I guess I would say for my brand, genuine advocate for VA homeownership transparency through the mortgage process in any process dealing with business. For my story; there’s a guy that wasn’t afraid to make mistakes and live his life by putting others before himself.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Oh man a week long trip would be a lot being an introvert that I am. if it’s summertime. We start at Lake Pleasant jet skiing at 8am, take a quick break at 11 to eat at scorpion bay marina outstanding food great view. Gone by 1 PM as it’s way too hot. I keep it low-key probably chill at the pool until 3pm. Then Head over to the Artisan in Peoria for a nice cold beer. Depending on the schedule Grab a bite to eat at arrowhead Grill in Peoria after that. Probably catch a game as Arizona has everything when it comes to sports. If it’s a weeklong trip we’re out on the hiking trails, Visiting the airfield graveyard down in Tucson traveling up to the Grand Canyon visiting Lake Powell on the Page side, cooling off in Sedona or Flagstaff with maybe a couple days in Vegas. I love a good road trip. Nothing beats taking a road trip and having genuine conversations about life and getting older!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Everyone loves a good shout out! I’ve been fortunate enough to be in the room with some very important people whether it’s an office setting breaking bread, zoom, or just having a beer! I think my greatest inspiration support or mentorship has come from friends and family. particular my Dad. He’s always been an inspiration. He’s always taught me to keep asking why search for the answers you are seeking. The get up and go do the work! Great books are crucial learning from everyone else’s experience helps navigate some of the challenges you might have that people of already dealt with. Extreme ownership by Jocko Willink, top performance by zig Ziegler, The power of now by Eckerd Tolle, excuses we gone by Wayne Dyer are all important books for me personally. When you’re counter balanced in your health both mental physical spiritual everything else seems to fall in place!
