About us

Richard M. Sanchez


CAL BRE# 00892581

I have been in Real Estate for over 27 years. I have managed properties and served the Real Estate Communities in various cities of the great State of California. As a broker I have managed a sales force in Southern California as well as Northern California. I was born in Monterey County and graduated from Stanford University. Upon receiving my BA from Stanford, I became an educator in Santa Clara County. After my retirement from the Educational field, I worked in various management positions for Gillette, Polaroid and Anchor Hocking. My desire to establish deeper roots, and work within my community, inspired me to enter the Real Estate arena in 1985. My focus and expertise lies in the Santa Clara county as well as San Mateo County.

I have had the opportunity to assist many a family to attain their dream of home ownership as well as to acquire rental properties or commercial buildings. My specialty is to fill the need of my buyer or seller whether they are first time buyers or savvy, veteran, investors.

Our Mission Statement: “We treat you as if you are our only client, by providing you the service that you deserve.”


Peter Frankel, Jr.

Sr. Mortgage Consultant


I have been serving the SF Peninsula as a mortgage planner since 1992. I graduated from Serra High School and received a Bachelors in Science from the University of San Francisco in Business. I was born and raised in San Mateo and still reside here with my wife and four children.
Excellence in my work as a mortgage planner is very important to me. I am dedicated to meeting your real estate financing needs and will invest the time, effort, and resources necessary to ensure that we have a positive experience. I specialize in a diverse group of loan products designed to meet your residential purchase and refinance needs. This includes 1st and 2nd mortgages, FHA loans, construction loans, and financing for apartment buildings, commercial buildings, and mixed use properties. I have 20 years of experience in the mortgage business.
Many companies recognize the importance of customer service, but few make the effort to exceed customer expectations. Mortgage Services is proud to be one of the few who make that effort. We have provided customers with solutions to their financing needs since our inception.
Company Facts: Founded in 1985 by Joe Lanam, Mortgage Services has enjoyed steady growth. Our offices are located in downtown San Mateo.
Mission Statement: Mortgage Services is dedicated to delivering its products and services on time as advertised, to the full satisfaction of our clients
