Why keep your mortgage in the community?

Commitment

Different homebuying circumstances call for different types of mortgages. We’re committed to finding the right loan that works for your unique needs.

Compassion

We don’t think a low credit score should stand in the way of homeownership. If you’re ready to purchase your own home, we’re ready to help discover a way to make that possible.

Flexibility

You may not fit in other lenders’ rigid lending guidelines. That’s okay — neither do we. We look for ways to say “yes,” not excuses to say “no.”


Hidden Costs of Buying a Home

Are you ready to buy a home? Learn about the advantages and disadvantages of home ownership, the upfront costs and monthly fees, the hidden costs, and the credit factors lenders evaluate in the lending process.
