Keith appears in the Top 100 People in Real Estate Magazine
Keith Dunne is a New York-based independent mortgage loan officer, who holds both a New York State Public Adjuster License and an Insurance Broker License. Thoroughly engaged and committed to each of these fields, and with more than twenty-six years of combined experience, Keith has established a well-deserved reputation for outstanding performance in dual specialties and represented thousands of mortgage and insurance clients throughout his career.
While maintaining his professional obligations within the insurance sector, Keith was introduced to the mortgage industry by a childhood friend and immediately became intrigued. He began to originate loans for homebuyers and discovered his proclivity and passion for the vocation. Shortly after, he pursued and obtained licensure as a mortgage loan originator. Keith began to work with private clients, which he acquired himself, and was soon closing loans at an impressive rate. In the first three quarters of 2018, he generated over $20M in mortgage loans.
This momentum has continued over the years with Keith increasing his network of realtors, lenders, and borrowers, persistently expanding his knowledge of the market. He understands the importance of delivering stellar results and his reputation for closing challenging loans has led to continuous growth with his realtor partners and client base. Keith has the capability to close loans on properties with open permits, open violations, and even those with no certificates of occupancy. In addition, he has created a unique strategy, which allows him to get the best rates for his mortgage clients by having more than 20 lenders compete for their business.
Keith is highly regarded by clients, colleagues, and the community. In addition to managing three professional specialties, he maintains an admirable philanthropic profile as former secretary of the Dolphin Beach Association and as a member of his church. Keith’s penchant for assisting others began early on, when he was growing up in Valley Stream, a suburban city on Long Island, New York. His late grandfather dedicated years of his life to providing food for the outreach program at Holy Name of Mary Roman Catholic Church in Valley Stream and in continuance of his grandfather’s legacy, Keith and his sons deliver food to St. William the Abbot in Seaford, NY. Keith’s father and grandfather also served the community as NYPD police officers and initially, Keith pursued a criminal justice degree before following his passion for business.
Family remains of the utmost importance to Keith. He has two sons from a prior marriage; aged 13 and 10, and recently had his third son with his new fiancé, Nicole, who has two children; a 9-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy. He considers his big blended family to be a blessing and enjoys spending all his free time with them. Keith says his mission is to “balance business and family and raise cool, respectful little humans.”
