Introducing New ZINC Team Members

At ZINC, we’re proud to welcome two new additions to our team of financial experts. Amber Castro has joined us as the new Vice President of Business Development, and Karin Blackburn has come on as our Senior Underwriter. Both Amber and Karin bring years of experience in banking, mortgages, and finance to our accomplished ZINC Financial team. Clients who have already had the pleasure of working with Amber and Karin will attest that their positive attitudes and in-depth knowledge of California’s housing markets are excellent additions to the company.

Meet Amber Castro

Before joining ZINC Financial, Amber was an assistant loan originator at Greenland Mortgage Corporation in Fresno, California. Early in her career she served as a Senior Case Manager for the American Arbitration Association, frequently handling over 50 cases at a time and expertly managing the deliberation and processing of her client’s hearings. Following her time at the American Arbitration Association, Amber lent her talents to HSBC Mortgage Services and Wells Fargo Home Mortgages. Her years within the home mortgage industry have given Amber unique insight into California’s housing market and provided her with an expert knowledge of the state’s mortgage law, process, and finance.

Meet Karin Blackburn

Karin Blackburn is an accomplished leader and an expert in all things escrow. She has spent her career in California working as an escrow officer for such companies as First American Title Company and Commerce Title Company. Her primary goals in her past positions were to ensure that escrows closed on time and in keeping with her customers’ personal and professional satisfaction. Well-versed in California real estate, both in terms of markets and finance, Karin brings vitality and ambition to the ZINC Financial team.

Both Amber and Karin are excited to be a part of ZINC Financial because the company is the premier private money lender serving the California marketplace. With quickly funded private money loans, excellent customer service, and expert knowledge of real estate investment, the team at ZINC Financial is ready and excited to help you move forward with your next real estate move.
