Tim Mcnaney, Michael Fietz and Vinnie Pizzonia bring three distinct skill sets to twilight homes, but their merger in 2011 left the company well-positioned to take advantage of the wreckage leftover from the housing disaster. When the real estate bubble – primarily residential housing – imploded and collapsed upon itself, it left everyone in the business seeking ways to find money. Unfortunately, most companies did not have the wherewithal or expertise to do so. “The banking industry wasn’t involved because of the regulations they face,” said Fietz, who knows a thing or two about that end of the business. His dad owned a bank in which Fietz worked, he also stayed with the business for a number of years once the family sold it. Fietz graduated from Albuquerque Academy and received an accounting degree and a master’s from Texas Tech in management. He then went on to earn a master’s in banking from the University of Colorado.
