Can anyone refer me to a creative Mortgage Broker in my area?

Asked by Mytiah, Encino, CA Wed Mar 27, 2013

I'm looking for a Mortgage broker in my area who can assist me with funding my home loan. I've been Pre-Approved by 3 lenders that I've got on my own.

I believe all the "Creative" ones no longer are in the business or are smart and don't want to take the risk any more. If you have been pre approved by 3 lenders... then A. They are having you do something that you don't want to do. Or B. You are trying to get around the system on how loans work in todays market.

Sorry, but all the creative lenders that I know went out of business in 2008.

Good luck!

The only lender you need is a direct lender to streamline the process when you find the home you want to buy. Wintrust Mortgage Tony Valez (818) 424-2607. He gets the job done! Tell him Peggy Moore

I work with a great lender that works hard to get the job done. I'm not sure what you mean about creative, but if you want I can give you his information. Let me know if you still need it.

I can assist you with things, but I guess the big question is, if you've already gotten 3 pre-approvals what exactly are you looking for?

Creativity is a plus for any mortgage broker, but brokers have their specialties and no one is a master of all niches.

If there is something specific you are looking for then let us know and you'll probably get more useful info!

Feel free to drop me a line with your situation and I can give it a shot.

Hi there,

I'll be glad to discuss and possibly assist on your loan. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Is this for a purchase or refi?

Ps: I just finished up setting up a refi loan in Encino for $900K.
