Danny Nicolo

CEO/Mortgage Loan Originator NMLS ID 21579

Danny Nicolo, a 1986 graduate of Xaverian, a private college preparatory high school in Brooklyn, N.Y, pursued architectural engineering with two years of undergraduate work at the Pratt Institute. During his high school and college career he became involved with his family’s catering business, A&S Italian Marketplace—a unique Italian specialty market, butcher, and caterer. Later, from 1989-1997, he continued to dedicate his time to the business by opening up several more A&S Italian Marketplace locations in the Tri-State New York area and Long Island.

While this was a very prosperous profession, he was married to the business and knew he needed more time for his wife and children—affectionately noting “Health and Family are Everything”. With the ever-loving support and encouragement from his father, he was urged to take a break from A&S and further pursue his talents. Danny decided to challenge himself and seek other opportunities to earn a better quality of life for him and his family. This led him to start investing all of his savings into real estate, eventually opening a one-man brokerage out of his basement. He built his early successes on his personal involvement with customers and provided service and guidance to them on a level they would never experience at larger lenders or financial institutions. His business started expanding, and of course, the only answer was to bring on board people who share the same passion for personal service and to create an environment that celebrates customer satisfaction over sheer profitability.

With grace, respect, and a mentoring demeanor, he skyrocketed his empire as president and chief executive officer of New York-based Meadowbrook Financial Mortgage Bankers—a full-service mortgage banker offering an array of products, from purchase, to refinance, to home renovation lending, and more. His corporation has since expanded into multiple locations along the east coast, and is now licensed in 13 states. He is known as the man who has made the transition from “Butcher to Broker to Banker” in the mortgage industry and continuously demonstrates the essence of what real leadership truly means. He now has the wonderful opportunity to travel and spend much deserved time with his family—something he’s always wanted. Danny is a nurturing and inspiring leader who has humbly imagined and conquered.
