Super Powers

Knowledgeable, Experienced and Professional 


My wife and I have worked with Alan for over 18 years. We’ve relied on him for all of our mortgage needs over the years, including a co-op, a condominium, and most recently, our brownstone in Park Slope. When other banks or brokers told us that it couldn't be done, Alan would always find a way to accomplish the near-impossible, steering us over each hurdle with sage advice and expertise. He has saved our financial lives at least three times and is the first person we turn to for housing guidance.
In addition, Alan is a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. When it comes to getting a residential mortgage, in our experience as Brooklyn property owners, there is no one better than Alan Trachtman.

Alan was a steadfast advisor and tireless advocate during our mortgage-approval process. We always felt he had our best interests at heart and he became a driving force on what turned out to be a not-so-simple situation. Alan was one of the best communicators on the team; he kept things moving and he went above and beyond to help out whenever problems arose.

I have known Alan Trachtman for 20 years.  I met him when I bought my first apartment in 1997. Now, I am selling that apartment and looking for another one.  And without question, I turned to Alan.  

Alan is one patient man.  No question annoyed him; no problem defeated him; no glitch deterred him.  I am not saying he was a miracle worker, just that he patiently guided me through the complications of homeownership.  And he did it with supreme kindness and persistence.

I just wanted to thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Everything went fine at the closing. I know you went above and beyond to make this happen, herding cats and calling in favors, and I so appreciate it! It's fair to say you moved mountains to try to get this closing done on time! And thank you for hearing me vent about my own frustrations with the construction delays, document requirements, etc., etc.

Whenever I can, I will whole heartily recommend you to anyone I know buying a place or needing to refinance

My real estate purchase would not have happened without Alan and his careful attention and ability to herd many cats. I had a tight deadline to make closing and every time it seemed impossible Alan made it somehow stay on track, making sure all the players involved kept to deadlines. He also found me a much better rate than anywhere else. Thank you, Alan!

Alan was terrific. He worked very closely with us to make sure that we were able to access the loans we needed. He responded very quickly (even on the weekend!) and handled all the issues that arose. I recommend him to everyone I work with now - as well as friends and family. Alan's been doing this a long time and I'm confident that he's the best in the business
