Customer Love

Peter worked with us to get a mortgage in record time (seriously, less than two weeks) for a purchase we wanted to make that was time sensitive! It was the easiest purchasing process we've ever had with clear directions for what we needed to provide and frequent communication about how things were going. We will never use another mortgage broker.

Peter was excellent to work with. As a first time home buyer, I didn't know what I was getting into, especially in this highly competitive market. He provided tons of support along the way, answered never ending questions and was incredibly patient and encouraging after many failed attempts. Couldn't have asked for a better person to rely on.
Tori Moon
I highly recommend Peter to anyone looking to get a mortgage. He was very on top of everything and quick to respond to all our questions. He provides constant updates throughout the process, which we found very helpful!

Rick Silverman
I would highly recommend working with Peter at Animas Mtn Mortgage. He was very fast and responsive and helped us problem solve some unusual terms. This has been our smoothest purchase yet and I will definitely return for my next loan.
Jeremy May
As first time home buyers, we were new to the process, but Peter took the time to answer any questions and I felt like he was always on top of things. I appreciated his prompt communication and help as we navigated through the process and he helped make this first experience a lot less stressful. Peter is professional and personable and we are really happy we got to work with him. Thanks Peter!
Katie Miller
Peter helped my family refinance our new house, mere weeks after our initial purchase. We felt we could get a better financing rate than with our first broker, and Peter did not disappoint! He was readily available to answer any questions we had, and he worked diligently to ensure we received the best available interest rate and loan terms. We will happily recommend Peter’s services to anyone looking to secure a home mortgage.

Peter is fantastic to work with, and WOW - is he on top of it! Would we work with him again - Absolutely yes! He went above and beyond and we are so grateful for his hard work on our behalf!
Veronica Lasater
Peter has been my go to person for financing for several properties in recent years, most recently a refinancing in November 2021. He goes above and beyond to make the process as streamlined and smooth as possible and always offers me good rates. I know that Peter is honest and conscientious, and that is also of great value to me - I never feel the need to shop around because I trust Peter to offer me a competitive rate and to protect my interests..
