A native Floridian, Yari Fumero has been working in the mortgage industry since she was very young, starting her career at Shelter Mortgage over a decade ago as a loan officer assistant. After several years, she left to start a family and then returned to work in the title industry where she expanded her knowledge to include the title and closing aspect of the home-buying experience. Returning to Shelter Mortgage in early 2016, she arrived as a well-rounded and knowledgeable junior loan officer.
Yari truly enjoys what she does, and it fuels her passion to help individuals and families get into their new homes. She also understands the importance of the huge financial decision her clients are making, because as she says, “They aren’t just buying houses; they’re buying homes for themselves and their families to enjoy for a lifetime.”
Over the years, Yari has worked closely with realtors and homebuilders all over Central Florida and has built many long-lasting relationships and partnerships that have served her well. Bilingual, she has used this to her advantage while working with both her English- and Spanish-speaking clients. Having grown up in a primarily Spanish-speaking home and seeing her parents struggle to communicate helped her understand the need for bilingual loan officers. These skills combined with her extensive knowledge of many different mortgage loan programs have allowed her to help hundreds of families finance their dream homes with little to no money out of their pockets. ◆
