MEET YOUR LOAN OFFICER

About Peter

In January 2013, a former business associate introduced me to the mortgage industry. Prior to that I spent many years working in financial services for some major investment banks. Since childhood, numbers have always fascinated me and are what most attracted me to mortgages. They’re much like the game of chess, which I love. You must logically understand the current situation while anticipating future moves to find the best solutions.

To achieve your goals, I start by listening to help you feel comfortable throughout the entire process. By understanding what you need and desire, you’re helping me educate you with your best options. I typically form close relationships with my clients, and I strive to make you a client for life.

I grew up in Kew Gardens, Queens, N.Y., and attended NYU for my undergraduate degree in business. I’m licensed to originate mortgage loans in New York and New Jersey. In the near future, I will run my own loan team, opening a branch in the Queens and or Long Island areas. Speaking of running, I’ve completed many triathlons, one of which was a 1/2 Ironman, in addition to completing nine New York City Marathons (in 1997, finishing in the top 4%).

In what I like to call “my past life,” I was a professional actor in several major TV shows. I like to watch movies, do hot yoga, take hikes, and play tennis and pickleball. I’m happily married to a wonderful lady.

I’ve learned a more fulfilling, healthy, and longer life is tied to the depth of your relationship connections. To me, success is when you’re financially, emotionally, and physically at peace with where you are. My intent is to deliver this kind of success for you on your home financing journey.

Owning a home is fun and fulfilling!

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.

Resources

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.

  • There are some major milestones on your road to home financing. As your loan officer, I’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure you understand each one and get through them quickly.

  • How much will your mortgage payment be? How much can you save if you refinance? Is it better to buy than rent? Use these online calculators to crunch the numbers and see for yourself.

  • I separate myself from other lenders by offering a broader selection of home financing options — from loans for first-time homebuyers to refinance programs for accessing your home’s equity.

  • Before you explore the endless options of home financing, some preparation is in order. Planning ahead for your mortgage is the key to an easier and more successful home financing process.
