We recently welcomed FC Mortgage Consultants as a WVCBA member! Broker/realtor Graciela "Cessy" Figueroa founded the business in Oxnard in 2005 and is driven by the company's mission of "service beyond sale." Her team looks forward to assisting you with your real estate mortgage loans, prequalification to purchase, refinance and reverse mortgage needs.
What’s one thing the business is known for over its competitors?
Practice of the Golden Rule, commitment and dedication to people in need of our services. This is where I live and I would love to help my community shine over all other counties.
Are there any new or upcoming projects/products/events/etc. you can tell us about?
I always have seminars, whether for two or 20 people. I love to give knowledge to our clients because knowledge is power. I do my projects and seminars as needed.
How can the community help the business?
Word of mouth is very important in all businesses.
It’s more than how the community can help me; it’s how can I help my community? That is the question.
Please add any additional details or information you want readers to know.
I am a Peruvian immigrant. When we were little, my parents brought me and my two brothers to this beautiful country where we were told we can live the American Dream and this is the country of opportunities. And you know what? They were impeccable statements that were so true. I want to tell everyone.... si se puede!

Our Member Spotlight this week about Nancy Fujii with Arbonne International, comes from our monthly Business@Breakfast networking events, which feature a guest speaker and provide you with an opportunity to promote your business.
Why did I join the Chamber/WVCBA?
I felt by joining the Chamber it would give me the avenue to meet more people so I can share my story and share my passion of helping others. I also feel the Chamber is a great way of giving back to the community. I’ve been a member for four years. I am an Alliance Ambassador and have joined various Chamber committees. The camaraderie is amazing and helping each other touches my heart.
Arbonne is a 41-year-old botanically-based health and wellness company. My passion lies on educating people about health since both my siblings have had multiple strokes in their 40s. Currently my sister has been in a nursing facility for almost 20 years and my brother recently lost his life due to poor health.
About Nancy Fujii
My name is Nancy Fujii and I am an Area Manager and Independent Consultant with Arbonne International. I hope one day I can meet each and every one of you so we can unite and make this chamber even stronger. Even though my house is divided (UCLA/USC) we live in harmony and that’s what the Chamber feels like…family!
