Tony Prestera is a Senior Loan Officer with Fidelity Bancorp Funding and has worked for the company since its inception in 2000. Tony puts the emphasis on upfront analysis and structure of every transaction, from personally walking the property to the review of financial documentation. “I love numbers and people” he says. “Numbers tell such a huge part of the story and of course getting to know the clients and how to present the entire package to successfully fund transactions.”
Having multiple funding sources at Fidelity Bancorp Funding allows Tony to listen and present the best available financing in the marketplace and relishes the opportunity to compete for and win deals. He also takes great pride that the majority of his business is from repeat customers or referrals. “I get great satisfaction no matter how small or how large a loan, I consistently hear back from clients or they refer me to friends or colleagues.”
Mr. Prestera is a graduate of California State University, Northridge with a BA in Radio/TV/Film and a minor in Journalism. Tony was a four year starter for the men’s basketball team. After graduating, he spent the next 20 years as an owner/operator of three restaurants before joining Fidelity in 2000.
