About Us

TeamReno Pittsburgh is a team of Top Gun renovation loan experts led by Jeff Philibin. The team includes Katie Grauer, Joe Verner, and Anna Pyle.

Jeff Philibin (Branch Manager, NMLS #408773) is a highly-experienced loan officer with over 30 year’s experience.  He loves his role because it combines his passion for a great customer experience, adventure and of course, renovation lending. He works in Pittsburgh/Western PA from the team’s Lawrenceville headquarters. He’s done thousands of loans in his career and helped hundreds of borrowers purchase & renovate their dream home. Jeff loves the excitement of helping clients take a property with potential and make it their dream home. He thinks he has the best job ever!

Katie Grauer (Associate Loan Originator, NMLS 2009610) is a loan officer who cares deeply about place and community. The renovation loan she and her husband used allowed them to purchase and alter a house in one of their favorite neighborhoods. Katie wants to help you buy a house that you love by keeping you informed, grounded, and supported (there are no stupid questions!). She volunteers for New Sun Rising, serves on the board of the Point Breeze North Development Corporation, and previously has worked in worlds of fine arts and economic and community development.

Joe Verner (Associate Loan Originator, NMLS 1874704) is assistant to Jeff in loan origination. He’s a worksheet wizard and great at running various scenarios/options for clients. He’s a very good guide when we’re helping clients make offers/obtain pre-approvals and submit their loan applications. Joe is precision & performance. If he was a car…he’d be a Ferrari!

Anna Pyle (Loan Officer Support) is our team closer. Once the loans are initially approved, Anna is your new best friend! She’s the one who helps you keep your loan on track by managing the process, people, and paper. She’s definitely the secret sauce on this team and the ideal person to get you to closing on time. There is a reason we call her “The Wonderful Anna!”

We work together as a team and we have a great time doing it. We work hard to make your experience a great one, from first call to working through the adventure, to getting the keys and doing the renovations. We care about you, and we’d be honored to be your loan team!
