New York, NY – May 16, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — GFI Mortgage Bankers, a leading provider of residential mortgages in New York, announces the financing of 81 percent of the end units (that closed with a residential lender) at Kirkman Lofts. Ari Sorotzkin, Senior Branch Manager at GFI is the preferred lender for this re-developed residential project located at 37 Bridge Street in DUMBO. The building is comprised of 45 condominium residences in a mix of studios, one, two, three, and four-bedroom homes. GFI was selected as the preferred lender in 2011 when sales began and has since financed 33 of the units with almost all units closing on or before the scheduled closing dates.
“Kirkman Lofts is an exciting project that we are proud to be a part of,” said Ari Sorotzkin. “The building’s unique, industrial-chic architecture is incomparable to other homes in this trendy area. As the preferred lender for the building, GFI educated buyers on home loan programs that best fit their overall financial strategy. We pre-approved borrowers almost instantly and, when documentation from the buyer was received on time, issued commitments within days. We worked closely with all parties and had very open lines of communication to ensure a quick, dependable process for everyone involved.”
Halstead Property is the exclusive sales agent for the property and The Law Firm of Marans, Weisz & Newman represents the sponsor of the building, Baruch Singer.
“In this challenging time for financial lending, Ari Sorotzkin has showed us that purchasing a home can still be a seamless transaction,” said Stephanie Tsolis-Makos of Marans, Weisz & Newman. “His extensive knowledge and professionalism, along with the rest of the team at Kirkman, has made the buying process easy and stress-free for new residents, something for which we are all extremely grateful.”
