In addition to serving as president of Augusta Financial, Mike Meena continues to be a top-producing mortgage originator. With more than 26 years of mortgage lending experience, Meena has built his reputation on being advice-minded and honest, delivering a quality product with clients’ short- and long-term goals always in mind.

For the past nine years, Augusta Financial has been voted Best Lender by the readers of The Signal, a newspaper based in Santa Clarita Valley, California. Last year, Augusta Financial adopted new systems to remain compliant with new rules and regulations; despite the resulting monetary and system-creation setbacks, Meena says the company was able to increase both the number of loans it closed and its overall loan volume in 2016.
