Professional Experience: Michele Herrera has been helping California residents with their mortgage lending needs for over 28 years. Because Michele began her long career as a loan processor, she is intimately familiar with all the details of the home financing process. With decades of practical experience under her belt, and knowledge of the best lending options available, Michele’s clients have the advantage they need to successfully close their loan.
With the strict lending requirements in today’s environment, it is not enough to just know what loan might suit a client’s needs. To successfully complete a transaction, the mortgage advisor must be able to navigate the difficulties that almost invariably come up in the loan process. Michele has that ability. Her strong base of referrals and repeat business is a testament to that fact.
Michele builds strong relationships with each and every client that extend long after the loan process is completed. She knows that it is her personal attention to every detail that ensures the successful closing of their loan.
She is a Santa Barbara native, and understands the particular needs of those clients seeking a loan advisor in this area. In her free time, she spends time with her family and friends enjoying all the unique activities that this beautiful community has to offer.

“Thank-you Michele Herrera and RPM Mortgage – Santa Barbara! My wife and I met Michele in 1997 when we purchased our Goleta home. Our first impressions were that she was very knowledgeable about every aspect of home financing and the products offered by various lenders, trustworthy in her commitment to finding us the best product for our needs and passionate – always looking out for our best interests as her clients and friends. Over the years, Michele has been our “go-to” professional for refinancing our home to pay for our kid’s college, remodeling and for chasing our life dreams. Leaving the Santa Barbara-Goleta area last spring was a difficult but important decision for my wife and me. Michele’s thoughtful guidance and reassuring confidence made the purchase of our new La Habra home quick and easy! We are forever grateful for your assistance and your RPM Mortgage services. With warm regards and genuine appreciation.”
“Michele was a pleasure to work with, and as a first time home-buyer she helped everything go as smoothly as possible. She is very knowledgeable and was very attentive throughout the entire process; always available to answer questions and walk me through anything. Michele was there for me from start to finish and I would recommend her to anyone.”
“Michele is excellent! I recommend anyone who might be afraid to take that first step, to just give Michelle a call. It truly does not hurt to get the info and see what can be done in any individual situation. She really made me feel at ease by talking me through the details and giving me great advice to start taking steps in the home buying process. She helped me to understand where I am at, how much I could afford and what I can expect. Michelle really helped open my eyes, feel better and much more comfortable, especially since I had been fearful to take this leap. Thank you Michelle! I appreciate all your knowledge, expertise and advice. I look forward to us working together.”
