Sally and Justin Steele lead lives of purpose. Sally’s experience working with refugees
inspired her to attend seminary and work with underserved communities. After studying
engineering, Justin followed his interest in social justice and technology to the
nonprofit sector. When they relocated to the Bay Area with their three daughters, the
Steeles set out to find a new home. First Republic helped them close quickly on a
100-year-old Craftsman. From there, the Bank refinanced their student loan debt and
provided a home equity line of credit, enabling them to fund renovations and transform
their backyard into a welcoming space for their family and neighbors.
