whats your rate?

Our most popular question!  The answer is...it depends.  Things like credit scores, loan amount and type of loan all factor into what rate you qualify for.  The good news is that we know the right questions to ask and can usually quote you a rate in as little as 5 minutes.

how is a mortgage broker different than a bank or mortgage company?

As a mortgage broker, we have the flexibility to shop around with multiple lenders to find you the best rates and programs available.  Banks and mortgage companies are usually more limited in the products they offer and are their guidelines are often more stringent, making it tougher to qualify.  Plus, their interest rates and loan costs are usually higher than what we can offer.

See Above.

how long does the mortgage process take?

Usually around 30 days from when we take the application until the loan closes.  We can close in less time if needed.
