I am experienced in using many state and local down payment assistance programs to help my clients without down payments purchase homes. I can do some purchases with no money down, and I have several programs requiring just a 3.5% down payment. Waterstone Mortgage offers VA, FHA, USDA, and conventional mortgage products. We are approved to sell directly to FNMA, meaning we have more flexibility on our conventional products than most banks. In addition, I frequently refer business to local banks to access certain portfolio products.
The bottom line is, not only do I have the programs, I also know how to use them. I offer competitive pricing but more importantly the knowledge and attention to detail you deserve from your mortgage professional. Online underwriting engines allow us to process and complete the loan transaction faster than ever before. For Realtors, since I am very resourceful I may be able to get your buyers pre-approved when other Loan Originators have not been able to.
Our State and Federal VA loan programs are a fantastic option for Wisconsin Veterans. These loans feature no down payment and no PMI! Waterstone will even help you access your certificate of eligibility and introduce you to a Realtor who knows how to work with the specific needs of Veterans. Veterans make sure to take advantage of this incredible opportunity!
I am also a local For Sale By Owner marketing expert. I assist FSBO's in marketing their homes and provide useful information to sellers and buyers to assist them during their sale and purchase. When a seller successfully drives a borrower to us for financing we then provide them with below market financing, should they qualify.
Outside of the office I am active in several professional organizations. I am member of the GMCC, the WMPA, the WSBA and NAMB. I serve on committee's for the Realtors Association of South Central Wisconsin (currently as AH/EOC Chair), HYP of Dane County, and I am a regular volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army.
