Merri Cook

I have been at Homestead Funding since January of 2012, and have been originating loans in the Hudson Valley for twenty years. I currently live in historic Rhinebeck, NY and have been a resident of New York State since 1989. I grew up in California and attended San Diego State University, but I’ve turned into a New Yorker! When I am not originating loans, I am an avid gardener and love to play golf. Helping people get into a new home is an extremely gratifying experience for me and I am passionate about my work. I think that home buyers recognize this when they speak to me, and it makes all the difference! This is particularly true for first time home buyers who require, and deserve, extra attention during the biggest transaction of their lives. What separates me from the crowd is my passion: I eat, sleep, and breathe real estate financing! I also tend to be very strategic about customizing transactions to each borrower’s unique profile. Everybody has a story, a life’s ambition, and a dream that includes owning their own home. My mission is to help them achieve that dream.
