Phillip Huffman President
Phil started Scripps Mortgage in 1990 after spending most of his life in real estate development with his father, Ray Huffman. Compelled to find a way to serve people in the real estate world, he recognized a need for honest, competent mortgage brokers who relied on relationship rather than numbers. Since opening the doors, Phil stuck to three main ideas: trust, service, and integrity. He wanted his clients to feel heard, and for their experience in the mortgage world to be one of familiarity, ease, and value. That trend continues today.

Dani Hawes Chief Financial Officer, Loan Originator
Phil began turning the operations of Scripps Mortgage over to Dani in 2010, after she earned her Real Estate and Mortgage Origination licenses. Since that time, Dani has been carrying on the traditions that her father initiated so long ago: excellent customer service and a dedication to her clients’ needs. She prides herself on her upfront, open, and honest communication with each and every client, and has worked as a referral-only mortgage broker for the last ten years all throughout Southern California, especially in San Diego and Temecula, where she lives with her family.
