Introduction to Mortgage Loan Officer

Approved Funding Corporation is a privately held Mortgage Banker, a licensed mortgage bank founded in 1987. Our clients are our business and we believe in the “customer for life”

When dealing with financial matters, I believe it is important that you know something about the company and the Mortgage Loan Officer with whom you will be speaking. Toward the purpose of providing that information, I offer the following:

• Started in the mortgage business in 1983 in New jersey

• I have had mortgage license, Series 7 and 63 licenses, insurance license and realtor license. I appreciate the importance of a mortgage in the total financial picture.

• I opened Citicorp mortgage offices in NJ in 1983

• Before that, five years with Citibank, Rochester, NY as Operations Manager

• Before that, five years with Johnson & Johnson in NJ

• Four years as Infantry LT and Capt, Berlin Brigade in West Berlin, West Germany

• One year at Ft Benning for Infantry Officer, Airborne and ranger Schools

• 1970 graduated West Point

• 1966 graduated Eastern Christin High School, North Haledon, NJ

• Grew up in Hawthorne, NJ (Braen Ave named after my great-grandfather)

• Since 1983 live in Awosting lake community, south tip of Greenwood Lake

• Four daughters graduated from West Milford High School

I have access to all mortgage programs: residential, commercial, conventional, FHA, VA, and Alternative lending programs.
