Coming from the small island of Guam, I found the partners to be very sincere during the interview process and it gave me a sense of family. At Wedgewood, the employees’ interests are a top priority and the partners are very approachable and easy to talk to.
Wedgewood provides the structure of a corporate environment without all the “red tape”. Decisions are more fluid here and there’s good communication throughout the organization.
The moment I walked into the office for my interview four years ago, I could see how different and unique the company was. Never did I think—a kid from Pacoima, with bad credit and no money in the bank—would ever become a home owner. Well it happened this past year, and it’s all thanks to Wedgewood’s employee homeownership benefit program.
The overall work environment and office culture here at Wedgewood is what really stood out to me and made me want to join the team. The incredible investing opportunities, benefits, and employee perks also makes Wedgewood not only a professional company, but truly an exciting place to work.
Working here at Wedgewood has been a life changing experience for me. From the moment I met the president of Wedgewood and his enthusiasm for the business, I knew that this was no ordinary company.

Assistant to Broker's Agent
Barry and his team direct a large portfolio of single family loans and assets which include both performing and delinquent mortgages, private money loans, rental properties, and REO properties. The scope and breadth of each asset is unique and his team reviews every asset individually to procure the best resolution. Borrowers with delinquent loans are reviewed first for possible retention options such as bringing the loan current, cooperation with various non-profit modification and principle reduction programs, and "in-house” modification reviews. If retention options are not possible, borrowers are also reviewed for non-retention options such a deed in lieu of foreclosure and short payoffs.
"The company goes beyond offering you just a "job"; it offers a career and a future. The company is constantly growing and changing. If you feel you are stuck, explore another business unit that interests you. With so many companies under one roof, there is always room to grow. You just need to be hungry and grab the chance. There are not many companies that can offer so many different opportunities to its employees."
