SF Bay Area Loan Originators

"SUCCESS OCCURS WHEN opportunity meets preparation" - Zig Ziglar

Getting ready to buy a home in the San Francisco Bay Area? Need to figure out your accurate purchasing power in today’s market? Just how much house you can and should afford? Need advice on what type of loan is best for you? You need to align yourself with a highly professional and incredibly trustworthy local loan originator. We strongly recommend that you get “pre-approved” for home loan financing before hitting the open house pavement so you can focus your search on the best homes that will meet your needs in all aspects - location, size and affordability.

Our VETTED SF Bay Area Loan Originators

A mortgage broker can help you with home loan products from a multitude of banks. A mortgage banker works for a particular bank and can help you with their bank’s options. One size does not fit all. If you’re not sure which option is better for you, give us a call so we can briefly discuss your personal situation and see who may be the best fit.

We work with these loan originators on a regular basis and know from experience that they professional, reliable, trust-worthy, and highly ethical. We have no financial relationship with them. We treasure our clients and only refer to the best in the business, yet we encourage you to talk to more than one loan originator and decide for yourself who is the right fit. He or she will make all the difference to the success of your transaction and your enjoyment of the process. With every lending insitution, there will be hoops to jump through, but today’s historically low mortgage rates are worth the effort.
