About Russell

While the mortgage business has changed drastically over the years, one thing hasn't changed: my commitment to giving you the detailed information, around-the-clock availability, and high level of customer service that will make your home financing process easy and stress-free.

It all starts by building strong relationships with everyone I work with. I do that by taking the time to understand their needs, working hard to find the best loan product to meet those needs, and providing personalized service at every step of the process.

In 1995, I began my mortgage career in Bergen County, New Jersey. Since then I have honed my expertise in real estate financing and grown my client base throughout the entire Tri-State area and East Coast.

Over the past 25 years, I have been a Loan Originator, Secondary Market Analyst, Junior Underwriter, and Regional Manager. Each of these positions helped me become a better mortgage professional and contributed to my genuine enjoyment of working in the home financing industry and helping people achieve their homeownership goals.

I live in Plainview, New York with my wife and 2 sons. I get to relive my Little League days by coaching my son's basketball, baseball, and football teams. I also enjoy golf and spending time at the beach.

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!
