How long does it take to master a skill? To understand a process so well that it becomes second nature? It’s hard to identify when, but over a 35-year career in the lending industry, Aslan’s Jim Hinojos has surely realized such expertise. Jim started out in real estate before finding his groove in managing mortgages. A self-described people person, Jim has paired his love for customer service with his innate ability to crunch numbers in producing winning solutions for every client he serves. Jim comes to Aslan after working for our CEO Carrie Gusmus years prior. That strong working relationship has spurred Jim to test his skillset in helping more families find the home they so deserve. The proud father of three, Jim Is now the grandfather to three beautiful babies, with two more on the way. You might be surprised to learn that Jim is a retired professional bass guitarist, playing R&B music at legendary venues like the Colosseum!
