About Emanuel

The “thank you” I hear when we close a loan is the best part of my day. A close second is hearing “this is the guy who helped me with my home” when I run into a client at the grocery store.

The mortgage business is a personal service business, and I am committed to serving everyone who comes to me for a mortgage. Over 60% of my clients speak English as their second language (I speak English and Greek). I also specialize in helping self-employed borrowers and I often find myself qualifying a borrower when another lender cannot. Part of my success comes from my knowledge of loan programs, part of it is because of the broad range of loans we offer at CrossCountry Mortgage, and part of it is due to my dedication to helping my community.

I began my career as a financial advisor in 1996. In 2003 I became a loan originator because I realized giving people the means to realize their dreams was the most fulfilling work I could imagine. I’ve never regretted the career change.

I would be pleased to help you with your next home loan. I’ll listen to your financial goals and make sure you understand your mortgage as well as the entire process. I’ll answer your questions and keep you up to date on your loan’s progress. Most importantly, I’ll work to give you the outstanding mortgage experience you deserve!
