I am a native of the Lynchburg, Virginia area. As a Registered Mortgage Advisor and member of The Equity Alliance Matrix (TEAM), I am committed to expanding my knowledge of the mortgage and financial industry, and to sharing that knowledge with my clients and professional partners through my Integrated Financial Management program. I am here to assist the needs of home buyers, home owners, home sellers, real estate investors, and related real estate professionals. I offer free services to For Sale By Owner sellers, pre-foreclosure/short-sales, relocation, and foreclosure resales. Work with a professional in everything you do and your disappointments will surely be few.
The Mortgage Equity Team is a group of mortgage professionals established to inform clients of the many advantages of equity management and repositioning. We are committed to expanding your knowledge and long-term financial options. In return, we ask only that you have an open mind about these concepts, combined with an interest in the new and exciting methods many clients and fellow professionals are using to build wealth in their own lives.
Providing you with a mortgage is just the beginning of our relationship - we want to establish a life-long partnership that is financially beneficial to you. You work hard to pay your mortgage, so isn't it time your mortgage worked just as hard for you? Together we can start planning for the future you've not only dreamed of, but deserve.
As a mortgage broker, I am able to shop rates and terms for you, helping you make a decision on financing options to help you obtain the lowest cost mortgage over time. Some of the programs that I offer are USDA (100% financing), FHA (96.5% financing), VA (100% financing for active duty military and veterans), and Conventional (up to 95% financing). With a wealth of knowledge and 100s of programs, we will uncover the ideal solution to your financing needs.
I also work with credit remediation services to improve credit scores. Your credit score impacts your interest rate and the overall cost of financing. In as little as 30 days, you can see a credit score improvement that will positively impact your financing cost.
"My husband and I have used Melanie for both homes we have purchased and have highly recommended her to all our friends. In a potentially stressful time she has always ensured that everything went smoothly for us. She is a highly organized, competent and energetic person who treats clients with the utmost respect for their time and individual situations." -April G.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your team works exceptionally well for the ultimate benefit of buyer/seller. They are dependable, professional and willing to do whatever it takes to make things as painless as possible for clients like us. This includes your agents, scheduling person, financial wizard--Melanie Thompson, and closing agent." -Bill and June G.
"Melanie is one of the best mortgage lenders I have ever had the opportunity to work for. She is extremely knowledgeable. She knows the ins and outs of her business and knows the difference between a good appraisal and a bad one; which it not the same as an appraisal that is merely high or low or matches the sales contract or not. I have referred people to Melanie in the past and will continue to do so." -Lisa Mackey, appraiser/owner, The Appraisal Practice
"Kudos to the best mortgage advisor I know!" - Tina H.
