A.S.A.P. Mortgage Opens New Headquarters in Peekskill
PEEKSKILL—A.S.A.P. Mortgage announced on June 8 it has relocated its corporate headquarters from Cortlandt Manor to Peekskill.
Originally scheduled for mid-April, the opening of A.S.A.P.’s new headquarters was delayed until June 1 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The new headquarters is located at 2 South Division St., at the intersection of Division Street and Central Avenue, which company officials say places it literally at the crossroads of this resurgent northern Westchester city.
The firm is led by award-winning founder and CEO Irene Amato and employs more than 30 people from the Hudson Valley to Manhattan,
“I am very excited for our company to make its new home in Peekskill,” said Amato. “In addition to providing mortgage services to Peekskill residents at our new headquarters, we look forward to providing employment opportunities and being a good partner to the greater Peekskill community.”
A.S.A.P.’s new headquarters occupies the landmark Hersch law building, which first opened as the Peekskill National Bank and Trust Company in December 1920.
Today, the building is also the site of the city’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration and ball drop. A.S.A.P. opened its seventh branch in the Morris Park neighborhood of the Bronx in December 2019, with new branches planned for Orange County and Connecticut by 2021. The company will celebrate its 20th anniversary in November.
The company’s previous headquarters, located at 2062 East Main St. in Cortlandt Manor, is now available for leasing, with 1,200 square feet of office space available; the company’s branch office in Cortland Manor (3565 Crompond Road) will remain open.
