About Eric

As one of the Top 15 Producing Loan Officers in Freedom Mortgage for many years, I am pleased to announce my new position as one of the branch managers for Cross Country's Melville office. With over 25 years of experience in the mortgage and finance business and many accolades, I fully understand the complexities of this ever-changing industry.

I truly love what I do and take tremendous pride in meeting the needs of my clients. I know the mortgage landscape and understand how difficult it can be for a borrower. Each loan is processed as if it were my own, and my expertise is in finding the terms that are right for your budget, competently handling the closing and ensuring all goes smoothly. I will navigate you through the red tape, protect you from any unpleasant surprises while making sure every call is answered promptly and professionally.

The financial aspect of home buying can be stressful and overwhelming, but it does not have to be. Contact me now and let my team and I get started making home ownership a reality.
