The answer might well be yes, but not right now. I don't broker loans, but we do have an in-house lender arrangement with the Bank of Commerce Home Mortgage. I would be happy to arrange the contact so that you assess your borrowing power right now, and make a plan to improve in the near future if necessary. A loan officer can examine your situation and advise you how to strengthen your credit profile so that it will meet underwriter guidelines. We can get you started with a buyer's agent if you are ready, but even when we are not ready to do something, we can always work at getting ready to ready.
