Meet Aitza Cabrera, Assistant Vice President, Branch Manager of the Darien Branch, Mortgage Loan Originator NMLS# 773367.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’ve been with First County Bank for 15 years. I started at the Bank as a Teller and my career has grown to become a Branch Manager and Mortgage Loan Originator. I enjoy all aspects of my job whether it’s helping someone open their first banking account or getting them into their first home.
I was born and raised here in Stamford, which is where I currently reside with my husband and three boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, and attending their sporting events. In my free time, I also enjoy doing volunteer work at Person-2-Person, and my boys like to volunteer with me as well.
What is your favorite part of your role at First County Bank?
My favorite part is interacting with customers during the mortgage application process. During this process I really get to know my customers, their goals, their dreams and their family. Through this I am able to answer their questions and provide them with the right solution to fit their specific wants and needs.
What is the most frequent question you receive from customers?
There are few, but the number one question I get is: “How long have you been with First County Bank?” Most people don’t believe it’s been 15 years, which opens up a whole new conversation – which I love.
Other frequent questions are: “What are the current rates?” and “Can you help me?”
What advice would you give someone looking to buy or sell in 2017?
It’s okay to be nervous, and not have all the answers to the process. That’s what we are here for, to answer your questions and guide you through the process, whether it’s buying or selling your home.
