I live in Marco Island, FL with my wife Angela and two children, Elise and Easton. We moved here from sunny Minnesota back in August of 2010 and haven’t looked back; we love it here.
I currently serve as the SWFL Area Manager for Finance of America and am responsible for increasing FAM’s footprint in the area. I do this while continuing to originate loans as I enjoy helping clients with their financing needs. During my time in the mortgage industry I have encountered many different scenarios as a Loan Officer, and Manager. My ability to think outside the box in has helped get numerous families get into a home and many of my Loan Officers do the same thing for their clients. The high level of service I offer my clients, referral partners, and business associates is the cornerstone of how I do business. My previous career as a professional baseball player taught me how to persevere through adversity in order to meet goals and to work as a team. Put my experience and service to work for you on your next home purchase or refinance; you won’t be disappointed.

“My husband and I are very pleased with the services we received from Finance of America! Peter Prodanov worked diligently on our home loan. He was very straightforward and to the point. He was very prompt getting back to voicemails and emails. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and I had no doubt he would work as hard as possible to make sure we got our first home loan approved. I would like to thank Peter again for all his hard work and everyone else at Finance of America. Very great company to work with and highly recommended!”

He followed also daily, was accessible when we had questions and took care of all the details. We would highly recommend Peter.”

“Most people don’t get too excited when faced with the mortgage process. From the start, Peter was easy to communicate with and managed the process so I didn’t have to. He was recommended to me from our Bartos Group agent, Isabel Nunez. He responded immediately and assisted us in working out some different scenarios depending on which direction we went in our property selection. He was very informative and asked the right questions to quickly narrow down our needs.
As we narrowed down a property, Peter was very helpful in guiding us through the process and educating us, not just feeding us forms to fill out. He has an excellent command of technology and this was extremely helpful in making the long distance transaction happen very smoothly. I often leaned on him with questions not related to the financing deal in order to gain a better perspective about the area. His knowledge of the island was very helpful. Based on his response time, he doesn’t restrict himself to standard business hours. We tried not to abuse that during the process but there were a few emails that we sent his way during crazy hours, whenever something crossed our minds. Always responsive, and never an issue with him.
Peter understands that most of us don’t do this process enough times in our lives to be fluent at it. He’s a great coach and his patience is part of his professionalism. The process was painless, and even when we moved the closing up by a week (with only a week and a half notice to him) he didn’t fluster, he just got it done. That was very beneficial because we were able to get into the property and spend more time setting it up for a rental program. Had that not been accomplished, I don’t think we would have had enough time to get the property where we wanted it before we left the island. With Peter, there were a lot of valued added aspects to dealing with him. We feel like we received more from Peter than just the financing. I feel like we have another friend on the island and I wouldn’t hesitate to contact him for advice or assistance for anything.”
~ T. Chornstein
“Before applying with Peter, I was rejected by another lender with whom I already have another loan that I was quite certain was going to approve me and asked Peter if he thought he would be able to get me funded in less than 30 days and he responded yes, I was amazed that we were able to get this done and on such a short notice, Great Job !!”
~ Patrick L.
“Terrific attention to detail and not a simple loan considering I am self employed and this was an investment property. We closed early with no surprises.”
~ Tom S.
“Peter helped me with a reverse mortgage and explained all aspects of the product and process with me. He was very easy to understand and was extremely patient with me.”
~ Gregg H.
“My loan application was extremely complicated. Peter saw it completely through with total success at the end. I would highly recommend Peter for any of your loan needs.”
