LOS ANGELES, CA – August 10, 2007 –  The Helvetica Group announced today that has opened a San Diego office to service local mortgage brokers and realtors.


“We believe a physical presence in the San Diego market will allow us to foster closer and longer term relationships with local brokers and realtors enabling us to offer more alternative lending products to Southern California,” stated Chad Mestler, President and Founder. “A local presence will give us greater local knowledge and expertise and an ability to make decisions faster and provide much needed financing quicker.”


The San Diego office will be headed by Johnny Camarena, Executive Vice President. “We have recruited some very talented individuals with national lending experience to accommodate our growth” stated Mr. Camarena. “We anticipate that there is going to be great demand for alternative lending sources in the near future as a result of the recent turmoil in the sub-prime mortgage space.”
