Wisdom is found at the intersection of knowledge and experience. On their own, knowledge and experience have very little value in today’s volatile lending environment. The AMT Group is a team-based approach to meeting a client’s needs. Our understanding of lending guidelines is like a Marine’s connection to his weapon. Any good Marine can field dress his weapon with a blindfold on, otherwise he will shoot himself or someone else–and that is why a borrower’s experience at other lenders is so deplorable–the originator does not have full command if his or her weapon.
Andy Mersiowsky and Peter Bartolini are The AMT Group’s Mortgage Planners. Andy has degrees in accounting and finance and began originating residential mortgage loans in 1998. Peter has been in the consumer finance industry since 1995 and began originating residential mortgage loans in 2001. Andy and Peter work with each client to understand their objectives, gather all the necessary information and documentation to support their desired loan structure before they write a purchase offer, and effectively convey their ability to secure financing to the seller so the offer stands out even in the most competitive situations. Afterwards, they proactively communicate with all parties during the escrow process so the closing is smooth and on-time.
