About Donnersson G. Penna

Your mortgage is personal, and I understand that.

Together my team and I are committed to delivering the highest quality of financial services, combined with the best rates on the market. As my client, you can trust that I will be with you step-by-step from application to closing.

As a trilingual speaker (Portuguese, Spanish, and English) I am able to attend a much broader pool of clients and discuss the process in their own language

Our focus has always been to understand and exceed the expectations of our clients and referral partners. My philosophy is to listen to the customers' needs, and respond to those needs efficiently and effectively. We approach each client's situation with a unique, personalized touch, and when it comes to getting the right loan and the right deal for our client, we will go above and beyond.

Many banks can get you into a home loan; our goal is to get you into the right loan. With my team's expert knowledge and our extensive lender network, we will find the best possible solution for the client's individual requirements. Our ability to look beyond the numbers toward the bigger picture allows us to secure often hard-to-find financing for unique property types, self-employed, complex, and foreign-national borrowers.
