Home Loans

Wherever you are on the road of life, we can help you get to your new home sweet home. Our lenders will determine how much you can afford and guide you through the process.

From the first time you contact us until the day you pay off your loan, you will work directly with our team. We offer a variety of mortgage products with in-house servicing, so you will continue to have great local service — even after the loan closes.

We understand that the homebuying process can feel stressful and overwhelming. Our goal is to make it as simple and straightforward as possible. Whether you are buying an existing house, building new, or utilizing the equity in your home, we are here to help!


A pre-qualification is a great first step when you start looking at homes and want an estimate of how much you can afford. You provide estimates on your income and debts, which our lenders use to give you an estimate of the price range within your budget. 

It does not require a lot of information gathering, and we will not check your credit history at this step. A pre-qualification is not a commitment for a loan, but you can submit a pre-qualification letter with your offer to a seller to show you are a serious buyer. 

Get Pre-Qualified 

Once you have determined the timeline and budget for your home purchase, you can start the mortgage approval process. A pre-approval is an application for a loan, but it happens before you have chosen a property or before you have an accepted offer.

A pre-approval is a fixed loan amount that a lender commits to lend you to based on a completed loan application. Credit reports, debts, savings and income will be reviewed. Pre-approval does not guaranty a loan until your property is chosen, passes inspections, and meets underwriting guidelines. 

Get Pre-Approved 

After you have an accepted offer on a home (congrats!), you need to apply for a mortgage with the specific property cost and location information. If you have already been pre-approved, we will just need the property information to complete your application. Otherwise, you will need to provide full details on your income, employer, and debts. 

You can fill out the mortgage application online and one of our lenders will contact you to discuss any next steps to finalize the loan.
