Financial Services

First Rate Funding, Helping You Buy The Home of Your Dreams!   Adirondack Country Homes Realty Inc. is now pleased to offer its customers, Realtor colleagues, and clients financial services by First Rate Funding.  Richard "Rich" Gross, 1st Rate Funding's liaison to our North Country, is both brilliant with ideas and hand's on.  Rich says "The Internet it a fine tool, but there is nothing better the personal service to really get to the root of providing their best mortgages needs.  We can beat about any banking program, but I have had to also tell customers you aren't ready to qualify."  Rich adds, "Honesty is a better approach than false promises, or unexpected surprises at the closing table."


First Rate Funding Inc. of Albany and Saratoga has established an Adirondack Regional Office in the “Log Office Building” to present its broadly based mortgage and financial services to mortgage seeking clients, Realtors, and businesses throughout the Park and the North Country area.  First Rate Funding will work in close co-location at the Log Office Building “at the light” in Lake Placid with two other local businesses, Adirondack Country Homes Realty Inc. – an eight office multi line residential and commercial Realtor serving the area of 11 years, and Country Business Services Inc., - the areas only full time business broker - that has helped with serious business sellers and buyers in the region since 1978.


Richard Gross, the First Rate Funding VP who will staff the new operation, noted that placing First Rate’s products in close proximity to parties seeking financing is a welcome addition to Lake Placid in the light of the challenges facing the mortgage and finance community at this time.   Mr. Chris Falvey, President of First Rate said “ The company has been a presence in the Capital District and Saratoga County with its staff of 20 loan officers since 2001, and has a variety of financing products that can assist both residential and commercial clients. We have a reputation for personal service, providing quick, efficient options and competitive lending rates based on our client’s specific needs.  We look forward being there for borrowers in the Adirondacks”.


First Rate Funding opened their branch location in Lake Placid in early November and has its headquarters at 427 New Karner Road in Albany NY.  Watch for upcoming 'Banking Tips by Rich' coming soon.
