Meet Barry Hollander
Born and raised in Southern California where I grew up in Calabasas, California and began my career in real estate & finance in 1987. My passion is working with people and helping them achieve their home ownership goals. Because I truly enjoy what I do, I never consider what I do as work.
Married to my beautiful & amazing wife and partner, Susan, who works as a Office Assistant at an elementary school in the Conejo Valley. Susan’s passion is working with children, caring for animals and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I owe much if not all of my success to her relentless support and dedication to me and our family.
We are blessed with two wonderful teenage boys, Zachary & Benjamin. Both are honor roll students. They are both consumed with sports, friends, family, school work and of course... playing "Fortnite."
When not in the office, I like to play golf, mountain bike, go on hikes, go fishing, camping, skiing, going to the gym, playing poker and spending time with friends and family, which all keep me busy outside my other passion…. Originating and funding loans.
I started in Real Estate at the young age of 18 and ended up in the Mortgage Industry right after college. I guess you can say I got in the mortgage business because I am always seeking... “approval."
My passion is working with people and helping them achieve their home ownership goals. Because I truly enjoy what I do, I never consider what I do a job or work. It’s a calling and I make myself available weekends, evenings or Holidays because I know how important homeownership is to my clients.

How I Can Help
Whether you’re purchasing your very first home, downsizing, upgrading, seeking a vacation property, or purchasing an investment property, I can help you. My team and I would love the opportunity to provide you with the service and expertise you deserve.
With over three decades of mortgage lending experience, I understand the many complexities and challenges involved with financing a property. One of the main responsibilities I embrace is to properly qualify all my borrowers, so they can shop for a home with confidence and peace of mind.
I believe in, "Doing things right the first time," which is evident in my thorough qualification process. I diligently review and analyze borrower's income, credit, assets and all other variables of the application in advance to ensure a seamless and pleasant transaction. The key to my success is communication and knowledge of underwriting and program guidelines. When unexpected situations arise, my team and I tackle the matter with urgency to find a solution.
FirstFund Mortgage Corp successfully executes on all fronts due to our dedication, in depth knowledge and caring team. We are committed to providing an exceptional experience for all parties involved. Our knowledge and experience is vast, and we treat each customer the way they would want to be treated. From the very first conversation, all the way thru funding, we are passionate every step of the way. One hundred percent of all my business is from happy customer’s and realtor's referrals, so anything less than exceptional is not an option.
