Buying your first home is an exciting time but can be difficult and confusing also. We've financed many hundreds of first homes and have developed a comprehensive set of loan programs to assist the unique challenges first-time buyers often face. We also understand the uncertainty and anxiety buying a home for the first time can bring. To counter this, we have a stress-free consultative process to help each home buyer understand and overcome any hurdles which come up along the way.

Step one is a consultation with one of our Loan Officers. We'll gain an understanding of your finances, home buying plans and future housing goals. From there, we'll develop an individualized plan to qualify you for the best mortgage to fit your needs. Just click to get started and, we'll get to work on your home buying plan!

Buy Now, Refinance Later.


Timing your home buying plans with the market in order to get the lowest interest rate is hard, if not impossible. Our clients have the advantage of a free refinance benefit that they can use anytime in the first 5 years of their mortgage. So why wait? Go ahead and buy your new home now, and let us pick up the closing costs for your refinance if rates drop in the first 5 years of your loan.


It’s often less costly for us to refinance a loan we’ve already made and this is our way of passing those savings along to our customers. We are committed to helping our clients save at closing and beyond.
