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 was always available to provide updates during the whole process, answer questions , returned phone calls and emails in a timely matter which is impressive in this industry. Most importantly he was able to close on time and fund the date that was on the contract. Shout out to Nick he was the real MVP for such a smooth transaction.

Ronnie was extremely helpful, and he was readily available when we had questions. Except for the mix up that the bank was closed on closing day, we have never had such a smooth and easy home loan experience!

Nick and his team were awesome. We started with another company and he made up the time that the other company lost and was still ready to close 5 days early. In constant communication and ready to answer questions at any moment. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. A+++

Nick was awesome. We had started working with another group and wasn't getting the communication needed. Nick started 2 weeks behind and was able to get everything done and ready to close 5 days early. Great communication. Very knowledgeable and was able to answer questions immediately. Love the experience. A+++
