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.

Peter was personable and professional, a dynamic combination with excellent results. A 10/10, will definitely recommend.
The only Broker I will ever use.
Peter helped me with my financing on my first house when I lived in Calgary, Alberta. He was more than great help. His service was exceptional and made the process very easy. Then when I move to Red Deer and was porting my mortgage, the bank was making it difficult, Peter helped me out and identified the issue in minutes, which the bank had not identify in the weeks. He received no compensation for this, but went above and beyond to help me out. Unfortunately, when I moved to Vancouver Island Peter was not licenses here, so I went through a bank again and had similar issues. It will not happen again. I will be looking to Peter when my mortgage comes up for renewal. His patience, commitment and service is top notch!
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 and his team were wonderful to work with. He was there to offer advice and very quick to answer any question I had. Greatly appreciate everything he did.
