I have been assisting home buyers and homeowners since 1993. I am a graduate of Walsh College, majoring in Finance. With over 22 years originating loans, I am well equipped to walk my clients through the mortgage maze. And the current environment has turned into quite a maze.

As a mortgage planner, I operate a bit differently than my fellow mortgage originators. It is my goal that my clients understand all aspects of the mortgage process, are shown all possible options available, and feel completely comfortable by the time they get to the closing table. Using state of the art analysis software, I compare the available options, showing not only monthly payments, and closing costs, but the longer term costs of each program. By structuring the mortgage correctly, my clients are better able to reach their future financial goals.

I also am very aware that when I am referred a client by another professional or past client, how I treat the referred client is a direct reflection on the person who did the referring.

Specialties:
1. FHA, including 203(k) rehab loans
2. MSHDA - Down Payment Assistance
3. VA
4. Conventional, including FNMA HomeStyle rehab loans
5. Rural Development
6. New Construction
7. Jumbo (mortgage amounts over $417,000)

Ratings & Reviews

I cannot express how much I appreciate my lender, Mark Gelbman of Main Street Bank, after going through a long mortgage process. Mr. Gelbman was always professional and courteous. He helped me understand exactly what was needed and never made me feel that my concerns were trivial. Mr. Gelbman helped me to stay focused on the goal of completing the mortgage process and not to become overly frustrated by delays. I worked with Mr. Gelbman and my realtor for months. Mr. Gelbman was outstanding in keeping the communication open and always returning calls and emails. I owe Mr. Gelbman a tremendous amount of thanks for his professionalism and support.

Closed purchase loan. Southfield, MI

Mark is very knowledgeable & experienced but most importantly he uses that knowledge to ensure the purchase of your home is seamless. He communicates very well and will gladly answer any questions or concerns you might have! He took the time to go over our closing costs, he negotiated a reduction in our title fees, connected us with a home insurance company that helped save us money & he came to the closing. This is my third closing and he is by far the BEST Mortgage Guy I know!!!  More Less
