About Shane

My name is Shane Kennedy, and I am a Loan Officer with CrossCountry Mortgage. I joined The Nicholas Team after graduating from Manhattan College with a degree in Finance and Psychology. I immediately fell in love with helping others achieve their dreams of homeownership, so I knew the mortgage industry was the perfect fit for me. As a local lender in NY and NJ I pride myself on communication and making sure you close on time with no surprises and at a budget you can afford. I offer a wide range of loan programs, from FHA and VA to conventional and jumbo. Everyone’s goals are different, and my recommendations will respect your unique circumstances, leaving you in the best possible financial situation.When I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies include going for walks, trying new restaurants, and playing on my Men’s League hockey team.

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.

Helping your home financing process go smoothly.
