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.

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.

She is grateful to be able to continually learn from two thoughtful, experienced entrepreneurs like Peter and Jacquie.
I have dealt with Peter for several years He has always worked hard to get me the best rate possible, and has gone the extra mile to meet my needs. I will continue to work with Peter going forward.
I used Bayside Mortgage Solutions to purchase my new home – and I cannot believe how smooth the process was. We usually go with our bank, but are glad we decided to try a mortgage broker. Peter’s team was in constant contact through every step, and our realtor even commented how much she was even kept in the loop on how our new mortgage was coming along. Thanks Peter. We’ll be sure to recommend you to all our friends.
Peter went above and beyond to help us with getting our mortgage figured out. Even after everything was done, he was still willing to answer my questions and contact financial institutions for me. Thank you so much for all your help!
Peter did my mortgage almost three years ago. It was an easy, well informed process and he put my family at ease with his knowledge and customer service. He still touches base and reviews our mortgage to see if there are any changes on our end, and if anything can be done on his. I recommend Peter to anyone looking for a mortgage – if it be a new home, refinance or renewal!
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!
