Customer Love

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.

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..

Peter did a great job for us, especially since we wanted a quick closing. He smoothed the way for us with the underwriters and was never unaware of where we were in the process or what the next step entailed. We got a good rate and he tailored the process and the loan to our needs and desires. I'd certainly recommend him and would go to him again for future needs.
Peter was a consummate professional throughout our home buying process and helped keep all on track and provided updates regularly. We ended up with a great rate and I would highly recommend his services.
