“I spend my free time outside the office with my 6 Grandchildren nearby (3 girls/3 boys). They provide all the activities you have the time and energy to participate in! The youngest granddaughter has a full ride scholarship to San Jose State for her volleyball skills; I’ve been to many matches! My 6 year old grandson appears to have some baseball skills that might materialize into something meaningful. I’ve been to many games. I have a 10 year old nephew that we sponsor karate, drum, and art lessons for. My sister , Kathy, lives on a full acre, which has the amenities of a resort. My family frequently invades her home for food, games, swimming, and general overall camaraderie!"

Ms. Collins and Mr. Kinney each bring over 26 years of mortgage industry. Joining Kathy and Bob are sales manager Justin Collins (NMLS ID #305729), who will manage the Los Banos office, mortgage consultant Christina Dalmaso (NMLD ID #227589), and loan processor Gabriela Mendoza.

My hobbies revolve around music and musicianship. I've grown up playing in bands around town, and lead the worship team at my Church, Valley Baptist in Merced.

“We were ready for a change,” said Ms. Collins.  “After looking at a number of lenders, we felt that Platinum was the best fit for us. They are a true direct lender offering more products with minimal overlays. They have a great culture of customer service towards their customers, referring clients and their sales staff.”

The new Merced and Los Banos branches offer the full spectrum of Platinum’s lending portfolio: conventional, FHA, VA, USDA Rural Housing mortgages, a variety of renovation programs, as well as, an in-house manufactured home financing program.

We are now looking for more qualified, licensed mortgage consultants to join our new teams.

“We are very pleased to add Kathy, Bob and their team on board,” said Lee Gross, senior vice president.  “Their experience in the Central California marketplace is a major asset as we grow nationally.”
