The Bayside Team
ABOUT PETER CARSTENSEN
Born and raised in Duncan, BC, Peter is proud to be building Bayside Mortgage Solutions in his hometown. Peter's mortgage career started 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.
Peter has been in the mortgage industry for the past fifteen years 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 has 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.

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!
It was my first time working with a mortgage broker and it was a wonderful experience. Peter went above and beyond to ensure that I received the best mortgage options and was extremely good at explaining all processes. Peter and his team had amazing customer service as well which made the process so much easier. I would definitely suggest Peter and his team to anyone looking for a mortgage broker!
So pleased with the service from Peter. He was very helpful, got me an excellent rate, and kept me informed and answered all my questions. Definitely recommend 100%!
Overall, great experience.
Peter and Christine were excellent to deal with. Always quick with their replies and always willing to answer the many questions we had. Peter even took time out of his evening (twice) for phone meetings with us. They kept our realtor informed of everything as well which was very helpful. This is our second time using them and will continue to use them when needed!!
