Linda Rey craves hearing about business success stories. Her insurance experience spans 30+ years. As a previous insurance agency owner, Linda managed the Commercial Lines Department, new business development, agency branding and networking.
Her professional experience includes (in no particular order):
* Sales and marketing strategies
* Implementing management concepts
* Personnel Development
Linda launched a new venture in 2018 with her partner, Trevor Curran. They created a Commercial Financing Brokerage to help entrepreneurs expand their enterprise with unique and cost effective business credit financing solutions as well as commercial mortgages.
Linda cut her teeth in her father’s insurance agency in the mid-1980’s with a typewriter, carbon-copy paper forms and a mad dash to the post office to snail-mail applications via certified mail!
Linda was determined to blaze her own trail after college and start a new adventure. In 1990, she found herself in Atlanta and dove headfirst into a successful career. Guess which industry? You got it! INSURANCE. What a happy accident!
Linda’s new career was with a reinsurance corporation as an Ocean Marine Underwriter. After 9 years, she returned to Sleepy Hollow, NY, and re-joined her father’s agency. She assisted with technology upgrades, building the brand and networking with community and business organizations to expand the agency’s visibility.
In 2000, Linda earned her professional licenses including Life & Health and Property & Casualty Broker and 6 & 63 securities licenses.
In 2009, Linda discovered social media and was hooked. Her talent at building business using the 21st century tools, alongside old-fashioned selling and networking efforts, resulted in an 800% increase in revenue.
Linda has been professionally recognized by various organizations including 914Inc.Magazine, Westchester County Business Journal, Sleepy Hollow Chamber of Commerce, American Association of University Woman, Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Westchester Magazine and Institute of Applied Human Dynamics.
Linda’s community contributions include various community and county organizations such as Sleepy Hollow Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of the Tarrytowns, Westchester Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, Westchester Association of Women Business Owners, Food Bank of Westchester and Westchester County Association.

Linda was also a proud contributor for the Equifax Insurance Blog from 2010-2014.
Linda is a 2007 graduate the Academy of Entrepreneurial Excellence from the Westchester Community College in conjunction with the Business Council of Westchester.
Linda LOVES working with business-owners who see their limitless potential with growing their business.
Multiple careers across decades-long timelines only begin to define Trevor. He was a writer and musician in his teens and twenties. Manager in the retail trade in his late twenties. Banker…including Manager and Sales Director…in the ensuing 30 years of his career in mortgage financing.
These days Trevor resides out in the country in Roxbury, Connecticut. Yet he hasn’t left behind the standards he developed in his mortgage financing career, including a severe attention to detail and a desire to provide access to credit when Banks, Underwriters, and the general population of the financing world tell business owners that dreaded word, “No.”
Sing me a song and find me that financing I need to grow my business.

Aurora Consulting assists individuals grow their small businesses with fun and flair. Linda Rey has a unique way of making work, seem less like work. If you own a small business and are looking for ways to grow, and smile while you do it, look no further. Aurora Consulting is where you need to be.
I cannot give Aurora Consulting and Linda Rey enough stars. I work in a very small niche field and for years we had been searching for someone who "gets us" and what we are looking for in our marketing, social media and website. I was starting to give up hope (we tried a lot of people), nothing seemed to be the right fit. Then, one day, I was introduced to Linda. She is creative and her mind never stops rolling, she takes a video of a simple meeting and is able to make something great! She has increased our presence in just a short time and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Aurora to any business looking to up there game!
Working with Linda Rey has been invaluable. She has shown me how less can be more (my original copies were way too long.) Graphics matter. Audiences are more engaged with strong graphics. Consistency matters. Linda has helped me set up a process to more consistent with my social media. Video works. Consumers love live crisp authentic video. When you partner with Linda you work with a professional in the business who will help make your business better and grow your revenues...and you will have a lot of fun working with her!
Trevor and Linda have helped us attain financing to grow our small business. Their professionalism and network of resources are remarkable. I highly recommend Aurora consulting for all your commercial financing needs.
Thank you for being the beacon that small business’ can rely on, to help them navigate the unchartered Covid-19 waterways….
Shut out of the first round of PPP funding by my local bank of 20 years — along with most other truly small businesses — and with another 310 billion of funding coming into the picture that would fly out the door, I realized I was going to need some street savvy to break into the application process. Trevor Curran and Linda Rey at Aurora Consulting not only have the experience and industry knowledge, they’re also good people, truly dedicated to their clients. Within 24 hours of the release of fresh funding, I had an accepted application by a new lender, and had submitted all requested documentation. They hit the ground running as soon as I called, and didn’t pause until we crossed the finish line. Finance rock stars extraordinaire!!
"Yeah, you are [the] only one I know that knows what they are talking about!" (COVID 19 Disaster Financing Loans)
Thank you so much for providing clear, concise and important information. You guys rock!
It is with GREAT pleasure that I write this review of Aurora Consulting. I was referred to them and they have been Effective and Efficient. These are very stressful times for us Small Business Owners having to close our Businesses, deal with financial losses and then having to navigate through the SBA programs available to us.Not only did Aurora learn the ever changing EIDL and the PPP process, Trevor responded to all of my calls, emails or texts in speedy fashion. In fact, we communicated constantly and he was reassuring throughout the entire time. They were successful in securing an EIDL Grant and PPP loan approval for my business. I am so impressed with their work ethic that I look forward to working with them to securing my business credit line as the economic climate changes.
I honestly could NOT have done this without your perseverance!! Owe you and Linda big time my friends!!
It's taking me 2 days to find words to describe my feelings towards you and the fact that for the first time in 22 years of being in my own business I finally found a company that understands the struggles a small business goes through to obtain funding or help when it comes to line of credits or loans. I for one can't express my gratitude for all the help and you have giving me during the COVID-19 Pandemic its not about the money or how much my company got its the fact that you guys were there for me when ever I had a question and needed explanation or clarification you were always there to answer address my concerns and guide me to the right decision. I truly appreciate you and believe this is a start to a prospers and success relationship between your company and mine, so once again thank you so very much for all you do.
There are not enough words to describe the dogged determination - coupled with a deep concern for customers - that Aurora Consulting has demonstrated during this unprecedented crisis. They worked diligently on helping me find emergency funding at a time when I had to focus on my business and my family. I had tremendous peace of mind knowing Trevor and Linda were working on my behalf. I would recommend them to anyone considering their services. An incredible team dedicated to serving others!
Trevor and Linda have been a tremendous asset to my small business. They bring positive energy and even more importantly, positive results to everything they do for us. Thanks to their diligent efforts, I received all the COVID-19 funding that I sought and more. My calls, emails, and concerns were consistently addressed in a timely manner. It has been and is a great experience working with Trevor and Linda, and I look forward to continuing the relationship. Highly recommended! ~ Todd I.
