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.

That was the second time I do business with Donnersson and I could not be more satisfied. He and his team are super professional and friendly always ready to provide all and every information in order to ensure I was understanding the whole process - which can be really confusing for those who are not familiar with all the different terms and financial rules. In the end, the process was really fast with no hassle and I ended up with a much better mortgage interest rate! I recommend Donnersson 100%! ... Read More

Donnersson and his team made my loan approval smooth, transparent, and easy. What I loved about working with them was that they over delivered. They kept me updated throughout the loan approval process and secured a rate lower than what I expected. I highly recommend working with Donnersson and his team! ... Read More
