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 licensed life insurance agent and financial educator.
She is grateful to be able to continually learn from two thoughtful, experienced entrepreneurs like Peter and Jacquie.
We’ve done several mortgages over the years with Peter at Bayside Mortgages. His expertise and level of service are second to none. Our Realtor actually commented that she’s never worked with a mortgage broker who was so engaged and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
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!
Peter & Jacquie make buying a home a stress free experience! They are good at what they do and strive to get the best mortgage rates possible and the most suitable mortgage for each individual! They don’t stop until they are sure that you have received the best mortgage possible! They are fun and easy to deal with! I would recommend them to everyone and we would not and could not ever imagine using anyone else!
