bio floret


Entering the mortgage industry in 1992, Mike has grown a passion for helping home buyers and home owners with their financial needs. He was led into this industry by his first career as a realtor thus achieving a unique perspective. He is a native of San Francisco, which gives him a first-hand experience and knowledge of the Bay area economy and real estate unlike anyone else can offer.


“Always putting my client’s needs first has allowed me to grow my business by referrals only. These referrals have allowed me the time to put my energy into getting my clients’ the best rates and programs available,” says Mike. His success in the industry is attributed by his clients. His words to you, as someone looking to seek home financing are as follows:


I love working with home buyers. My goal is to make the purchase experience easy and stress-free for my clients. All the upheaval in a home buyer's life is enough - packing, moving, changing utilities and my personal worst, a new day care provider - you just don't need a stressful mortgage process! The same is true to a lesser degree for people who are refinancing. My first priority is to make sure my clients are presented with all available options, allowing them to make an informed decision, that’s right for their financial situation

-Mike Ervin


The W.J Bradley team and I work with each client to determine the best mortgage program for your individual situation, taking into account both the short and long term impact to your overall wealth creation goals. We also communicate with you throughout the process so that you are always aware of what's going on with your loan application. Plus we follow up with you after closing. I'm in your life for not only the intense period of time when you're getting a mortgage, but as your personal mortgage professional for life.


On the personal side, I live in Pacifica with my wife Karen, son Zach, daughter Aly and 2 dogs. I enjoy scuba diving, skiing and cooking meals for friends and family. I am former commissioner of Pacifica's Parks, Beaches & Recreation and have served on the Pacifica Economic Development Committee. I am a proud sponsor of Pacificans Care; a community based non-profit organization.
