Credit Approval Process

Our credit approval process has many homebuyers moving ahead of the queue and crossing the finish line ahead of other buyers. Contact Luxury Mortgage to find out how much you can afford and be ready to go when you find your dream home.

Welcome Home

Luxury Mortgage offers homeowners and homebuyers a cost-effective way to turn a house into a dream home. A Renovation Loan can be used on a newly purchased or refinancing property that needs a makeover. The loan will cover the cost of minor or extravagant renovations.

Of all the "welcome home" we do in our business, there's no one we want to welcome home more than you.

Thank you for your service. Now it's our time to serve you. Luxury Mortgage offers veteran’s administration “VA” Loans to active, non-active and retired Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, National Guard and Coast Guard. Our team will strive to deliver the best rate and terms available for your needs.


We know you have big plans - but those big plans aren't going to fit into a small mortgage. Well, luckily for you, Luxury Mortgage's Jumbo and Super-Jumbo mortgage might be just your size.

The Perfect Mortgage

We understand how emotional and cumbersome the mortgage process can be. That's why we've spent countless hours outlining every detail of the loan process shortening each step, so you receive what you deserve- the perfect mortgage with a luxury service experience

Mortgage & Rate Calculator

This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.

Stage 2: PROCESSING - Process and Verify

Your Loan Originator, coordinating with your Loan Processor, will review the documents you've submitted for completeness and will request the necessary third party verifications and evaluations. Once all third party requests have been received, the file will be reviewed for accuracy and the loan will be sent to Underwriting for review.

  • An appraisal is ordered from a Luxury Mortgage Corp approved appraiser.
  • NOTE: A contact person (either you or your realtor) is required for access to the home.
  • Other third party verifications are performed during this stage.

Stage 3: UNDERWRITE - Analyse and Disposition

The goal of the Underwriter is to review applicants' credit worthiness and insure they have sufficient income to support the requested loan. While we aim to provide the underwriters all the pertinent information to support your financial profile, each case is different and underwriters may ask for additional supporting documentation.

Here are some insights that will help avoid some of these requests. (LINK TO INSIGHTS)

Stage 4: CLOSING - Gathering Final information and Scheduling the closing

Our Closing team reviews the file for legal and compliance-related items, addresses any open loans or municipality restrictions in the title history of the property and coordinates the time and location of the closing. Items that are of importance for closing:

Prior To Closing
  • Homeowners Insurance naming Luxury Mortgage (your new lender) as the additionally insured.
  • NOTE: Provide the name and contact information for your insurance broker and we'll do the rest.
  • Schedule appointment to walk through property one last time
  • Transfer utilities accounts
  • Ensure closing cost funds are available
Day of Closing
  • Photo Identification: Bring your drivers license
  • Binder for Homeowners Insurance & Paid Receipt
  • Certified or Cashier's Check (for your down payment and closing costs)

News articles in which Peter Grabel has been featured:


“I was introduced to Barry by one of my very treasured clients who worked with him on her first home purchase in Queens. When she was buying her second home in Manhattan, she told me (as her real estate agent) that she was unquestionably going to work with Barry again. I learned very quickly why.Barry was very attentive not only to our mutual client, but as a team player as well. He responded quickly to my emails and phone calls and was communicative on any issues that might slow down or otherwise affect the purchase. He fostered a great team setting that made our client feel cared for and secure and helped bring the sale to a smooth close. Barry also facilitated the sale by recommending an excellent attorney. I look forward to any opportunity to recommend Barry to my clients.”
- Laurielle N., Representative, Town Residential

“Barry helped me closing a loan and the process couldn't have gone smoother. He took the time to explain my options and give me all of the information I needed to make an informed choice. Barry was always available to come to the phone including when he was on vacation with his family. If you want to work with a true mortgage professional go with Barry.
- Ross H.

“Barry was a great help for my wife and I when we were buying our first house. He took care of problems before they came up and coached us through the entire process which was quite intimidating at the time. From conception to closing, Barry was there to tell us exactly what to expect and how to handle each situation. His constant contact with us and all parties involved showed a personal touch that matched his enthusiasm and professionalism.”
- Todd L.
