Age: 32
Mortgage consultant and director of business development, Pacific Rim Mortgage

Jodie Tanga was just 22 when she set up her own branch of a friend’s mortgage company in 2005. Since then she’s seen her business grow by leaps and bounds. In 2012, Pacific Rim did $120m in production, and Tanga herself originated $60m. Tanga is also a two-time president of the Hawaii Association of Mortgage Professionals and chairs the legislative and education committees. Her emphasis on mortgage education also extends to her clients, she says.

“I emphasize client education—we want our clients to be making the right decision for their future,” she says. “I also leave no clients behind; if someone is not ready now, we will help them fix and build credit until they are ready. My goal is truly to help all people achieve homeownership the right way at the right time.”
