The Bayside Team
ABOUT PETER CARSTENSEN
Born and raised in Duncan, BC, Peter is proud to be building Bayside Mortgage Solutions in his hometown in addition to the place his mortgage career started: Calgary, AB and the surrounding areas. Peter joined the mortgage industry in 2004 after leaving his chemical engineer technology career to join his wife who founded the mortgage brokerage a year prior. The skills that he acquired in his previous career have helped him achieve success in his mortgage business today; analytical thinking has been very useful in identifying and incorporating trends to continually grow his client referral base.
For the past fifteen years, Peter has been building Bayside Mortgage Solutions in Airdrie, Alberta where Bayside Mortgage Solutions was awarded “Best of Airdrie” two years in a row. He is excited to expand his business here in the Cowichan Valley and looks forward to growing future relationships in Duncan in order to build the professional reputation he holds in Alberta.
Outside of work, Peter spends his time training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is interested in health and wellness so that he can maximize his time in and outside of the office.
ABOUT JACQUIE CARSTENSEN
ABOUT KELSEY CADWALLADER
Kelsey is excited to have the opportunity to work with Peter and Jacquie and grow Bayside Mortgage Solutions!
With her background in Event Management, Kelsey was first introduced to the mortgage industry when Jacquie and Peter contracted her to coordinate a successful business event for 100+ people at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit in 2018. She now works full-time for Jacquie and Peter, assisting them with both their mortgage business and World Financial Group agency.
When Kelsey is not working with Peter and Jacquie, she is growing her own business with World Financial Group as a soon-to-be licensed life insurance agent.
She is grateful to be able to continually learn from two thoughtful, experienced entrepreneurs like Peter and Jacquie.
We just finished getting the perfect mortgage! We just bought our first home!! Peter has been with us every step of the way! He’s gone above and beyond what we expected!!
I could keep going on and on about how happy we are with the service and advice we received from Peter! We will be telling all of our friends to use him.
Thank you so much for your professionalism, answering so promptly every little question/concern and making sure we knew what was going on in every step of the way!
Becky & Kim
The Bayside team is always great to work with. Made getting the mortgage process go smoothly.
We relied on Peter’s advice and guidance which proved to be totally accurate. We have already recommended him to friends and family when they require mortgage and financial advice.
Peter & Joan Wilson
Peter made the mortgage refinance process so simple. He explained the pros/cons of a HELOC so we could make an informed choice. I found the service to be far more transparent than with our current bank. We appreciate that you give all the information from the get go rather than waiting until signing. Thanks so much for your all help!
Can’t say enough great things about Peter and Bayside Mortgages! We recently renewed our mortgage and Peter was so informative about our options, breaking down all of the details and making the whole process a lot less daunting! He got us a better rate than anyone else was offering. I highly recommend his amazing services!
