Arranging a home purchase or refinance, primary residence or investment property, is a major decision. FHA, VA, USDA, Conventional or Jumbo, we have the experience to navigate the ever-changing complexities of the lending industry
We service most of our loans, underwrite in-house locally, draw loan documents and fund from our own banking lines. This gives us the ability to close transactions seamlessly in a timely manner.
Constant communication throughout the entire transaction is key to borrowers. We provide continual updates and Steve is always available via phone including evenings and weekends.
