Grand Oaks Funding expands to Florida with ribbon cutting


Grand Oaks Funding held a ribbon cutting at its Ponte Vedra location and became a member of the St. Johns County Chamber Oct. 21.

The company is new to Ponte Vedra and Florida and recently opened its location at 360 Town Plaza Ave., Unit 315-D.

“It’s important to be part of the Chamber because we want to get out in the community,” branch manager Carolina Garcia De Mattera said.

Grand Oaks specializes in residential and commercial mortgages, but Garcia De Mattera shared the company’s mission to earn trust and loyalty from its clients.

“We want to provide education and guidance to all,” Garcia De Mattera said.

The company’s main office is in Staten Island, New York, and they recently made the move to Ponte Vedra as they look to expand and provide licensed mortgage services in Florida as well as New York and New Jersey.

Garcia De Mattera oversees helping with the transition into the new market, and she has already learned so much about the area and what people are looking for since she moved down.

“It’s very exciting because we’re gaining new clients, which means it is also new people that we can help share our knowledge with,” Garcia De Mattera said.
