The role of today’s mortgage lenders have become more and more intertwined with our business that to properly give a client a great experience, they must be ready and at your side at a moment’s notice. In my experience, my favorite lenders have essentially let me outsource my buyer qualifications straight to them.
As a buyer, your time is just as valuable to you as a Realtor’s time is to them – and the mortgage lender is there to help them maximize their time. How? By meeting with a mortgage lender FIRST before seeing property, it allows everyone involved to be on the same page. It is also a great chance to get to know each other, talk about the buying process and set expectations. In other cases, my mortgage lenders have saved ALL of us time in the unfortunate event that a buyer does not qualify for a loan. How disappointed would a buyer be to find that perfect house only to find out AFTER that they cannot afford it? Even in this case though, the lender and agent can help create the roadmap to qualification and ultimately help a buyer realize their home-buying dream.
Mortgage Lenders can save everyone time, set expectations for the home buying process and work with the client just as much as the Realtor. That is why I am proud to recommend these lenders below, whom I trust completely with my buyers’ mortgage needs:
- John Patton, Assurance Financial – (225) 614-1234 – Conventional and Conforming Loans and is always at the closing for his clients.
- Kelli Maggio and Paul Barranco, Fairway Mortgage – (318) 773-7691 or (225)413-4283 – HUD Specialists
- Keith Covington, Key Lending Solutions – (225)-772-0408 – Maneuvered what is most likely the two most unique and difficult deals we’ve faced in light of the government shutdown, and he got it done.
- Lisa Chauvin, Investar Bank – (225) 907-4529 – VA Loan Specialist
- Chad Landry, NOLA Lending – (225) 266-8248 – RD Specialist and FHA Specialist
- Brittany Boudreaux, Prime Lending – (225) 614-9093 – Condo financing and renovation mortgage products
If you are going to be in the market soon, please give one of these fine professionals a call. You will not be disappointed.
