About Barry

After originating mortgages for over 21 years, I’ve learned a thing or two about getting it done. I know home financing is a personal endeavor, which is why I begin every loan by listening. That’s how I’ll structure your ideal home loan – by understanding your goals and priorities. I specialize in a wide variety of mortgage programs and financing situations, including:

  • First-time homebuyers
  • Conventional
  • Non-conforming
  • FHA
  • VA
  • Rehabilitation loans
  • Reverse mortgages

Together, we’ll develop a plan to achieve your homeownership dreams.

Sharing is just as important as listening. I’m dedicated to keeping you informed about your loan’s progress while answering your questions from application to closing and beyond.

I really enjoy fitting the appropriate mortgage to each of my client’s goals. Whether you’re buying, refinancing, or renovating, I can’t wait to help you with yours.

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.
