Greg Hollis spent a career of 20 years in the mortgage industry, working, managing, and owning mortgage companies. Over his career Greg has been responsible for lending more than $1 billion dollars in mortgages.

By age 28 Greg had built and sold a successful Mortgage brokerage, Pinnacle Financial Services, Inc. Shortly after, he was solicited for, and accepted a position as Vice President, Mortgage Division of a national bank, where he was responsible for establishing start up and operating procedures, as well as obtaining OCC approval for DC’s Theodore Roosevelt National Bank to open with a mortgage division.

During Greg’s mortgage tenure he was responsible for making a success of a then littleknown mortgage program, FHA 203(k) rehab loan. The success of this program allowed HUD to insure loans in metropolitan Washington DC under the program from a low in1988 of less than 200 loans, to over 4000 loans by 1993. His phenomenal success in this area granted him unlimited speaking engagements, seminars, a radio show, and themoniker “the 203(k) man”.

After a successful career in the mortgage industry, Greg set his sights and abilities on the security industry. After working in an intensive sales training program under Ken Dash, President, CEO of Smart Homes Technologies, Greg was ready to venture on his own again.
