After working at Citigroup for nearly 30 years before coming to Homestead, I know I have the knowledge and experience needed to help you through the process of home financing. I work hard to be client sensitive in all that I do, so I feel it is my job to help you understand every aspect of the home buying process so we can overcome every challenge that may surface. I want to make sure my clients are aware of both the benefits and the risks involved in homeownership so they feel confident in their decision and are not met with any unfortunate surprises that could lead to regret or discontent. It is my job to consider your needs throughout this process and to respond to them quickly, but I also pride myself in being very detail oriented and making sure that nothing ever slips through the cracks as I find and originate the right loan for you.

I have lived in Merrick, New York my whole life so not only am I familiar with the market, but with the community. I volunteer with many different organizations including the Knights of Columbus and my church.  I was even recognized as Merrick’s Man of the Year one year for my volunteerism. My hobbies include boating and fishing and spending time with my family.
