Brendan Astengo

Regional Bank Private Banker
Wells Fargo Bank

I feel immense satisfaction helping people. Truly nothing feels better than making someone smile or hearing their sigh of relief when I help them solve a problem. For the last 4 years, I have held the position as Private Banker with Wells Fargo Bank working at the Northgate office in San Rafael. I enjoy being able to help my clients put together the pieces of their financial puzzle. There is a vast amount of financial knowledge available and I take pride in finding the right solutions for each person's unique needs. And while I enjoy helping customers every day there was always something missing from my life; a purpose outside of just doing fulfilling work. Finding Offerings has filled in that missing piece from my life.  Being able to spend time and energy to help special needs children is something I have become passionate about and I look forward to spending time with Offerings to make an impact in other people's lives.
