Ashwin and Lavanya Krishnan first met as students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Today they
have thriving careers and a growing family in San Francisco. When they were ready to buy their first home,
their real estate agent connected them with First Republic. The Bank supported them through the uncertainties
of the homebuying journey. Ashwin and Lavanya now consider First Republic a long-term partner they can lean on for financial advice when navigating new responsibilities as homeowners or as
entrepreneurs. This assurance helps them focus on their current priority: settling into their dream home as a
new family of four.
