Company Profile

We put the client’s best interests and satisfaction above all else. Our determination to cater to your specific needs coupled with our market expertise, attention to detail, and superior negotiating skills allows you to receive first-class service.



This is a list of our most frequently asked questions where you might helpful quick answers too.

Not necessarily, but it will certainly help. An experienced Loan Officer will know the program that will fit your needs. We have programs for 540 credit scores and above, if you qualify. However, the lower your score, the higher your interest rate will be. We have programs and tools to help us work directly with any challenges we may face.

Programs will vary. We will work with you to determine the best program for you. Down payments range from 3% to 10% down and, if you do not want to pay PMI (private mortgage insurance), you will need to put 20% down.

Closing costs refer to all of the charges you’ll incur and need to pay at closing. Closing costs can vary significantly, but generally, expect to pay around 2% to 3% of the home’s price. We will do all we can to keep those costs down but costs include, appraisal fee, survey fee, prepaid escrow and other costs for completing your loan.

Expect your loan officer to ask for many different items, but in general, be prepared to show all of the following:

  • Income verification (Last two years’ tax returns, W-2s, 1099s, and your last few pay stubs)
  • Drivers’ license and Social Security card (or alternative ID)
  • Bank statements
  • Proof of funds to close (and an explanation of where they came from, if it’s not obvious)
  • If some or all of your down payment is coming from a gift, you will need  gift letter from the source of the funds that confirm they are gift, not a loan.

There are several different types of mortgage loans to choose from and we will have guide you to the loan fitting your current financial situation and goals.

Discount points are money that you pay up front on your mortgage in exchange for a lower interest rate. One “point” is equal to 1% of the loan amount, so on a $200,000 mortgage, one discount point would be $2,000. If the interest savings over the life of the loan is greater than the points paid, it can be worth it. A mortgage calculator can help you determine whether discount points are a good idea by comparing the effect of various interest rates on your mortgage.

When you obtain a mortgage, you’ll probably be asked to put money into an escrow account to guarantee the lender that the ongoing taxes and insurance will be taken care of and paid. You’ll pay a lump sum into the escrow account at closing (also known as your “prepaid items”), and add to it further with each of your monthly mortgage payments.
