Why we should work together
After graduating with a degree in Economics and Political Science from the University of Pittsburg, Ira started out his career in retail banking where he quickly advanced to branch management. After completing his MBA at Loyola University of Maryland, he worked in commercial lending and eventually found his niche as a retail originator. Over the last 25 years, Ira has become a trusted lending partner among clients and industry associates.
Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or an experienced one, you can rely on Ira for your home and consumer needs. He is a strong believer that assisting potential home buyers with achieving their dream of home ownership is truly doing work that matters. Guiding them throughout one of the most important decisions of their lives is something he finds very rewarding.
Outside of the office, Ira enjoys traveling to new places and watching his favorite baseball team – the New York Yankees. He is married to Faye and has two adult children. He also currently serves on the Board of Trustees of Congregation Beth Israel.
