Chris Turkmany became a loan officer in August 2003 following the invitation of his close longtime friend Matt Hadnett, SBEL’s founder and president. His experience through the years has included lending on many levels – residential, commercial, hard money, and reverse mortgages. “The fun of working at South Bay Equity is being able to help a client with whatever lending needs they might have. At the same time, providing outstanding customer service is always my goal, and becoming a client’s advisor for life.” Chris is active in his community both at St. Anastasia Catholic Church and as a board member of CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) Sports. The native of Los Angeles is a proud alum of both Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks and Loyola Marymount University. He and his wife, Elizabeth, have two children and live in Westchester.
