I would strongly recommend Guaranteed Rate to anyone looking to purchase a home. They were the only Lender who was willing to work with me to make sure I could get a loan. Everyone was friendly, considerate, and always available when I had any questions.

About Al

I stared in the mortgage business in the late 1980s with the family business. My background in accounting and finance from Fordham University helped me excel in the mortgage and housing industry. I have always loved helping people achieve their dreams. I moved to Wilmington, NC in the early 1990s and it's been home ever since.

How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
The internet has made the paper work process much easier. Everything can be done online securely.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Use my secure online system to upload the documents we discussed needed for a smooth transition from underwriting to closing.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I love fishing and teaching people new to the area and veterans how to catch more!
