About The Groves Team

Elise and Glenn Groves, mortgage brokers in Santa Rosa, CA, have formed the Groves Team of First Priority Financial. They offer high tech, but high touch personalized service for either purchasing or refinancing and provide the critical information needed to navigate the complex world of real estate and mortgage transactions.

In addition to conventional loans, their financing specialties include FHA and VA home loans – as well as the outstanding Mortgage Credit Certificate program for the first time buyer when available. Providing residential financing for investors and move-up buyers, the Groves Team has focused on the information-hungry first time home buyer, who is the most important sector of the challenging local real estate market.

Elise and the entire Groves Team are constantly keeping abreast of industry guideline changes to help make each transaction as smooth as possible with no surprises. The team consists of Elise, a 20 year lending veteran; son Glenn; and Jan Winkel, Glenn’s mother-in-law, as their processor. After proudly serving our country as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, Glenn and his wife, Jamie, returned to Santa Rosa in 2010 to begin his career in the mortgage business as Elise’s assistant and processor and is now her partner. Glenn is particularly happy to help the veteran community with the outstanding VA home loan. Semper Fi! The goal of the Groves Team is to earn the respect and trust of their clients and referral partners, and have fun doing it.

Elise is a very experienced professional who is always communicative and cordial. I was immediately comfortable with her. She led me through the process and was helpful before, during and after escrow. Always accessible, she helped to make the transaction painless and educational.

The Groves Team were excellent. They helped make the tedious process of buying a house far less tedious. They worked to meet our deadlines and kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. Elise treated us like family which made the process enjoyable. I would recommend the Groves Team to anyone.

Elise made the process easy from start to finish. Her video explanations were amazing and she was always available to answer questions–day or night.
Meike M.
Elise did an utterly fantastic job for us. Her great attention to detail and ability to finalize everything on time, or ahead of time was as much as we could ever ask for.
Joyce S.
Our overall experience was wonderful. Easy, painless, straightforward, and as simple as a refinance could be. What more could you want?? Actually, yes, the experience would have been better if you had given me a puppy and a new car. Seriously, no, I was completely satisfied!
