Dick Dunbar brings his professional experiences as a CPA, (now inactive) and Vice President of Finance for some of Dallas, Texas’ largest real estate developers to benefit his clients. His professional experience as an entrepreneur and real estate developer adds value to his services as a residential mortgage loan originator. Using his financial background, he starts with determining the borrower’s goals and objectives for obtaining a mortgage. He works with them to establish their monthly mortgage budget and the amount of down payment a borrower can make. Based upon this information he determines the loan program options, the amount of the loan needed to meet his client’s goal and helps establish the purchase price range.
In addition, to a mortgage to purchase a residential home or investment property, Dick works with clients interested in lowering their monthly mortgage payments by refinancing their current mortgage to have better rates and terms. If a client needs cash out on their property equity, he can provide such a loan.
Dick enjoys working with first time home buyers to place them in the best financial position possible and have good credit scores to qualify for a loan when they are ready to buy.
His experience as a real estate investor and advisor gives him the ability to assist investment real estate clients to obtain an investment mortgage that will meet their goals for return on investments (ROI).
His 20 years in the residential mortgage business provides him with the knowledge to do creative financing when a borrower does not fit the requirements for the standard loan.
When not working he enjoys rowing on Lady Bird Johnson Lake (Town Lake), traveling, saltwater fishing, and going to the gym. He is well known for his cooking skills and entertaining friends and family.
