When Douglas and Melanie began working in the mortgage lending industry in 1986, they knew instantly this would be a lifetime career. Their love for helping people and natural tendency to work hard made them both top producers at a large California Savings and Loan, where they were employed for several years. They earned coveted memberships in the President’s Club every year they worked there.

To better serve their clients, Douglas and Melanie soon left retail mortgage lending for wholesale mortgage banking as they wanted to offer a wider selection of mortgage products to suit their clients’ specific needs. The change enabled them to work with a variety of lending institutions to offer many types and styles of loans.

Over the years, they have added additional financial services for their valued clients such real estate sales, insurance (life, disability, small group medical, etc.), and financial investments (IRA’s, Variable Life, College Savings Plans, 401K’s, etc.) making The Paseo Financial Group truly a ONE STOP SHOP in financial services it is today.

Douglas and Melanie Sedam love living in the Santa Clarita Valley. They have been active supporters of many philanthropic foundations here in the Santa Clarita Valley and are members of Grace Baptist Church. They have raised two children, Derek – who graduated from and currently works at Pepperdine University, and Kebra – who just graduated from Yale University. Douglas’ easy-going manner, warm sense of humor, and keen blend of knowledge in financial services have endeared him to friends, business colleagues and clients alike. Douglas is a licensed DRE Real Estate Broker, carries his CA Insurance License, and Securities License as well. Melanie Sedam runs the lending division at The Paseo Financial Group called The Home Loan Pros. Her expertise in mortgage lending has many of her competitors here in the Santa Clarita Valley seeking her out for advice as mortgage lending has become more stringent due to today’s market environment.
