Since graduating college in the summer of 2006 with a degree in Finance from the University of Florida, Nick has been in the mortgage business and has helped almost a thousand families obtain the dream of homeownership. He also has assisted in helping hundreds of people with debt relief, help with college tuition, and home improvements through refinance loans. He is dedicated to the client and maintains the utmost professionalism with each and every loan. He has been through the easy loan days, the depressed market for a few years, and now has navigated his way to being a top producer in the current market which demands a high level of customer service, product knowledge, and attention to detail on every loan. In the current market, Nick has been able to distinguish himself from the competition and vows “to never miss a closing date” on a purchase. This type of dedication and support for his clients has always been the cornerstone of his repeat and referral business.

Nick is very attentive and ensures all questions are answered. We were buying at home for the first time - which can be stressful. Nick and his team were great in making sure everything kept moving along smoothly and efficiently. We had very minimal issues because Nick and his team were on it every step of the way. We are so very appreciative to Nick.

Nick and First option are great! Buying a home, especially for the first time, can be super stressful. But Nick and his team were with us every step of the way. They ensured that everything kept running smoothly and efficiently even through out our closing process. We are very appreciative of everyones hard work involved. Definitely recommending Nick and First Option to any first-time home buyers!!!
