About Dante

Whether you are financing your first home or another investment property, you need someone with proven expertise to get it done. I started my mortgage career in 2009 and have since worked for some of the nations leading banks. A graduate of Adelphi University, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Finance in 2004 and use this education to help clients win not just today but for years to come.

When you work with me, I’ll start by discussing your specific circumstances to offer the mortgage options best suited to your short- and long-term priorities. I will provide information on every aspect of the home financing process and each home loan program available. Whether conventional or jumbo, FHA or VA, we will find the product to make your dreams a reality.

My consideration for you doesn’t end after finding a mortgage. From pre-approval to closing and into the future, I will always answer your questions and make sure your home loan continues to meet your changing circumstances. I look forward to starting your home financing journey.

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.
