About Anthony:

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Anthony completed his formal education in 1973, earning an MBA from California State University, Hayward, specializing in finance. Seeking to broaden his horizons, he headed east to Bryn Mawr, PA, where he spent two years developing accounting and finance courses for the American College of Life Underwriters, assistant teaching at Drexel University and extensive textbook writing in the area of personal finance (Family Finance published by Little Brown). Two winters on the East Coast later, he followed his heart back to the SF Bay Area, where, by 1978, he’d gone from Financial Analyst for a small real estate developer to joining others in forming their own real estate development company. It was quite a successful venture and served as a steppingstone to the formation of A. D. Bilich, Inc., aka Preferred Financial, in the fall of 1979.

At age thirty, Anthony borrowed $4.3 million for the development of an 84-unit condominium complex, located in the heart of Silicon Valley. To this day, he claims that he earned his “PhD in real estate” by successfully completing this project during one of the toughest interest rate climates ever. He borrowed the money at Prime + 1.75% then watched the Prime rate quickly climb to over 20%. While he had no shortage of potential buyers, many could not qualify due to the record-high mortgage rates. This, then, motivated Anthony to become involved in the mortgage industry as an originator of creative loans for his buyers. He’s never looked back - Since then, the primary focus of his business activities has been the origination of residential mortgages. Over the years, his company, Preferred Financial, has grown to be one of the largest mortgage companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a client base of nearly 7,000 and loan volume of well over $10 billion.

Anthony currently resides in San Ramon, CA with his wife, Angela. Their daughter, Lauren, lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
