Teacher's Funding Group

Commercial Real Estate Agent with Communitas Realty Partners
HI all!  I joined this group as a partner of a commercial real estate firm, but I have also been running my own mortgage company called Teacher's Funding Group for the last 5 years.  We do mortgage primarily in Colorado, but have the ability to do loans in: 
  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • Oregon
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin

We would especially welcome referrals for teachers.  We give teachers special discounts, and donate money back to their schools for every loan we do.  I look forward to working with you all!

We do a flat $700 origination fee to save them money, with no junk fees, free credit report, etc.  Then at closing we donate $200 to their school, school group, whatever they want.

Good stuff Jeff, yes i stay away from Junk fees as well. Its not fair for the borrower to pay for something that they shouldnt have to.

Teachers are one of the most underpaid and over-important professions in the United States

Ben, we do some, definately a lot of 100% financing as teacher's rarely have enough for a down payment.  Luckily though, most have better than average credit, so 100% financing isnt as hard to obtain.

Andrew, not sure what you are looking for?  I own the company, based in Colorado (we do out of state loans through another company).

So what are you doing now that My Community requires 680 credit score and can't get 100% anymore?  Are you using FHA now instead of My Community Programs?  I like the idea of giving back $200 as donation to the school.

Well John, like most other brokers, the pool of homebuyers has shrunk now that 100% financing has gone extinct.  Most counties in CO for example now require at least 8% down, unless of course you are doing FHA.  I have seen a huge increase in FHA originations, and I hear the same from lenders we work with.  And in general, teachers (and other borrowers) are having to wait a little longer, save for a downpayment, etc.
