Our Team


Chris Paliska - President

NMLS:  1076530

Chris’ focus is simple–doing the right thing and creating a positive impact on everyone with whom he comes into contact. It’s no surprise that his high energy and impeccable work ethic have earned him the title of “2019 Rising Star” by housingwire.com. Empowering clients to make smarter decisions is Chris’ goal—and he’s been doing just that, one customer at a time, for over six years. When he’s not spending time with his kids, or at the gym, Chris is leading a high-energy wave of lending with humility, integrity, respect and kindness.

Becky Quarres - Operations Manager

NMLS:  1482084

Fire spinning isn’t Becky’s only talent. As a natural problem solver, Becky is dedicated and passionate about helping customers achieve their personal goals. Thinking outside the box is her mantra, and has been the catalyst behind her successful career as a Junior Loan Officer and Pipleline Branch Manager. Becky’s innovation, creativity and organization make her an integral part of our success at TQL.

Aaron Vasquez – VP Business Development

NMLS:  1177252

Aaron doesn’t adapt to the energy in the room, he creates it. Radiating confidence and positivity, there’s no question why Aaron has prospering relationships in both his personal and professional life. As VP of Business Development and a producing loan consultant, Aaron is constantly on the move – however, readily available to his team and clients when called upon. Fluent in both Spanish and English, his vision is to allow everyone the opportunity for homeownership. When he’s not working you can find him at the beach, yoga or spending time with his friends and family.
