Lalin De Soyza
Lalin De Soyza has built a stellar reputation as an effective customer advocate in both the California real estate and mortgage industries. After earning his BA in business administration and economics from California State University, Los Angeles, Lalin began his career as a pricing analyst in the capital markets division of Weyerhaeuser Mortgage Company. Recruited by Countrywide Home Loans to manage credit risk, quality assurance, market research and finance, he learned to assess the creditworthiness of individuals and corporations with an great degree of accuracy.
After working in the treasury department at Walt Disney, Lalin spent seven years as a vice president of credit risk management at Indymac Bank. His robust professional background provided a strong foundation for Trulending Mortgage. Why co-found a mortgage lending company? “It’s very rewarding,” Lalin explains. “For instance, it feels great to help a young couple refinance their home and save $550 a month on their monthly mortgage payment-that’s a savings of $198,000 over the 30-year life of the loan. They can send their kids to college on the money they saved, and for me that’s very gratifying.”
Something else that has been gratifying is the specialty he developed for many years: buying and selling preschools in the Greater Los Angeles Area. Over the years, Lalin gained in-depth knowledge of all aspects of managing, marketing, improving and selling preschools. His skills range from managing successful preschools to increasing enrollment at new or struggling facilities. In fact, he became so experienced at it that he launched California Preschool Brokers (CPB) to help buyers and sellers complete mutually beneficial transactions.
Lalin’s advice to anyone considering a career in the real estate and childcare industries: “Think through the implications of what you’re promising, and don’t make promises you can’t keep. My customers know they can take my word to the bank.”
