About Mark

Having worked in all facets of mortgage banking, Mark is an invaluable resource for homebuyers in the Greater Hartford area. He’s extremely knowledgeable when it comes to pricing, processing, underwriting, closing, post-closing, originations, operations, and sales management.

Before coming to Embrace, Mark spent 8 years at Farmington Bank — first, as a Senior DE Underwriter, and then as Residential and Consumer Lending Operations Manager. As an FHA DE Underwriter, he single-handedly underwrote all test cases for 2 companies — one bank, one mortgage company — allowing both to receive their Direct Endorsement from the FHA. Prior to his time at Farmington, he was a Senior Loan Officer for over 14 years.

Mark is a native resident of Southington, CT and lives with his wife, Stephanie, and two daughters, Arianna and Katarina. He graduated from the University of Connecticut (UCONN) with a B.A. in Economics and a concentration in Finance. In his free time, Mark proudly watches his daughters play lacrosse, dance, and participate in other school activities. He also enjoys the outdoors and is happy when he finds a few moments to go fishing, hiking, or play golf.

Mark was SO helpful and understanding through the whole process. He went out of his way to meet with me and my father and explained everything to us on a wah that was understandable. This was my first time buying a home and mark answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with the whole process.
