Co-owner/Sr. Loan Officer
I have been in the industry for over 10 years. I will offer the quality of service that will come from only closing 100's of loans. Lester has the loan for you!
Blue Water Home Loans was founded by my business partner and I in 2008. We are a division of Mortgage One, Inc. and have the advantage of being a mortgage bank, but have the ability to broker loans. This enables us to fund our own loans, but still find the best deal for the client. Blue Water Home Loans was nominated for best new business at the 2009 "Best In Business Awards!" They won the award for Best New Business by the Fort Gratiot Business Association in 2009. Come check us out in our convenient location in historic downtown Port Huron.
Areas of Expertise/Involvement
I have been in the industry for over ten years. I will offer the quality of service that will come from only closing hundreds of loans. Whether you are looking to buy your first home or refinance your existing home, give Lester a call, he has the loan for you!

"I would like to share a story of exceptional service. I had heard good things about Lester and Blue Water Home Loans and decided to make the call to learn more about their loan programs. From the first moment, I received information that would help me make good decisions regarding my refinance. Lester even went the extra mile, late one evening, by helping me amortize both of my options to help me see which choice would provide the gains I was after.
