Greg’s passion to help people succeed financially stems from childhood memories of friends and family making poor financial decisions, which many times led to ruin. Financial literacy is lacking in today’s society, and financial education is nonexistent in the public school system. Helping his clients make sound financial decisions has proven to transform lives.
Greg and his lovely wife, Jennifer, have been married since January 2003. They have two sons, Drew and AJ, who keep them very busy. Greg enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, reading, and sports. He is involved in various professional and community organizations and is an active member of his church.
Karen Barsanti is the client relationship manager at the Brentwood location and helps clients with service and paperwork issues. After graduating with her business degree from Chico State University, she entered the commercial real estate industry, and for about 15 years, she was responsible for the property management, construction management, and leasing of office buildings. Karen joined our team in December 2005 after spending a few years at home raising her three children.
Karen enjoys working for the Martin, Wardin & Eissner team because she takes pleasure in getting to know our clients and assisting Greg with their financial needs, whether it is over the phone or in person.
