Kew Gardens Hills Gets A New Daycare Center

Kew Gardens Hills Gets A New Daycare Center

Frequently clients come to MortgageDepot with specific financial needs that accompany their ambitious goals of home or business ownership. Such was the case when a client wanted to finance a newly constructed commercial property that is a daycare center. Mortgage loan originator Ruben Benjaminoff sourced a unique financing opportunity for the client.

This unique financing opportunity was necessary to overcome the many factors that could have been obstacles to obtaining a mortgage for the property, located on Main St. in Kew Gardens Hills, Queens, NY. Principally, the fact that there were no tenants in the newly constructed building was its first challenge. Add to the fact that the appraisal came back at a maximum amount of 6.5 million dollars. And critically, there’s the issue of liability for this space as it’s a daycare center for minor children.

Ruben was able to successfully secure a commercial mortgage by structuring and presenting the loan accurately to the lender, addressing all their benchmarks for the client to qualify for the mortgage in the final amount of $2.2 million dollars.

The professional efforts of a mortgage loan consultant on your behalf may determine whether or not you’re able to obtain a mortgage that suits your needs. We here at MortgageDepot will work diligently to match your financial circumstances with the best mortgage product available to suit your needs. When you need a commercial mortgage; contact us, and we’ll do what we can to pre-qualify the property.

I’d describe my role at MortgageDepot as a processor, and additionally I’m also a skilled underwriter who performs pre-qualifications as needed. Before joining the staff six years ago, I worked in bookkeeping and accounting.

Each of my work days begins with email and attention to the priority files based on their urgency. I’m very methodical in my approach, and I start each day with a daily task list. I was fascinated by the mortgage process; and as a bookkeeper, I wanted to learn more. I have the advantage of possessing a natural affinity for numbers, and I enjoy working with them, so it was a seamless progression for me. Excellent client service is when your customers are so happy that they refer others to you!

The most critical change I’ve experienced in this industry is how digital technologies have transformed processes completely. If I could have one wish granted, it would be to see quarterly information sessions that allow professionals such as myself to keep abreast of the constant changes in the mortgage industry.

My role here at MortgageDepot is as a Loan Officer’s assistant. Before joining MD three years ago, I secured financing for Title 9 Autos as an automotive loan clerk for car purchases. My typical day consists of processing applications, checking for updates and making additions of required documents.

Although I was doing auto financing, I always really wanted to learn the mortgage business. And it’s a big plus that my job is very near my home, NO commute! It’s cool when clients return to conduct additional business with us and refer their friends and family! What’s changed in the mortgage industry is how technology has made information more accessible for consumers and now that’s the standard.

I’m looking forward to a day when collaboration is the focus, and everyone can do their jobs effectively no matter what their role is in the mortgage process.

Yury Gokhberg is a Mortgage Loan Originator here at MortgageDepot and also a licensed Real Estate agent. Yury has over 25 years of experience. He spent thirteen years with Chase Manhattan Bank as their first Russian speaking loan officer. Before joining the staff here at MortgageDepot, Yury was formerly a loan originator at Coldwell Banker and Citizens Bank.

“I have a flexible work schedule as I make my hours. This flexibility also allows me to work across various time zones Internationally as well. What interests me the most about working in the mortgage industry is the ability to help other people. Working here at MortgageDepot allows me to work with clients in ways that traditional banks do not.”

“Good client service looks like asking critical questions about their future goals, offering the very best interest rate, and helping them to accomplish their ultimate goal of homeownership. As far as the changes I’ve witnessed from the beginning of my career as a mortgage loan originator, it’s completely different than when I started my career. It has become highly selective to become approved for a mortgage because of government oversight.”

“If there’s a change that I’d like to see, it would be the creation of a guaranteed low-interest-rate government program that offers a product with a 25-30% down payment.
