Mortgage Loan Originator in Colorado Springs

Zakia Rice

Hello there! I’m the youngest of 3 daughters from first generation immigrant parents from Fiji Islands and wife of a Navy veteran. I was born and raised near San Francisco where my dad was a property investor. His work always intrigued me and motivated me to learn about what he did and how he did it. I started helping him with his business at a very young age and learned many things about real estate and finances. Some of my previous roles include real estate agent, property manager, personal banker, and branch manager for numerous years. While working in the banking industry, I had the most joy in helping clients with their mortgages. This is what led me to join the Reichert Mortgage Team.

My husband and I met in Southern California where we both lived at the time. We have one cat and one dog. Dolce is our Scottish Fold and Zoey is our French Bulldog. We both have a love for the outdoors, and especially visiting National Parks. Thinking of the future and where we saw ourselves for the long haul is what brought us to Colorado. Seeing the beauty of Pikes Peak every day is something that will never get old for me. I love being able to see the ranges and the occasional wildlife. Whether you are already enjoying living in Colorado, or are thinking about moving here to enjoy what Colorado’s beauty has to offer, I look forward to working with you!
