David Felender


David has been in mortgage banking for almost 30 years, and his most outstanding achievements are the relationships he has developed and maintained throughout his career. That is what makes working with him so special. David works with his clients to ensure they maximize the greatest return from closing their loan and not just close a loan to "close a loan." David is diligent, provides the best for his clients, and always goes the extra mile. His clients, staff, and service providers are like his family, and he would never close a loan for someone that he wouldn’t put myself into.
