The American dream can seem elusive to those looking for their first home in an often volatile housing market.
However with the right tools, and the right team, homebuyers are making that dream come true.
“We still believe we can help you find the American dream which is home ownership and all that entails. Once I have worked with people, they turn into clients,” says Dan Nelson, Branch Manager and Senior Loan Officer at Southwest Funding, a mortgage company offering home loan products across the board.
“We treat everyone as an individual and we build strong relationships with them. This is the largest investment they’re ever going to make in their lives, and I take that very seriously. We want to minimize the stress for them,” Nelson says.
A positive team that believes in their clients
Southwest Funding owner Don Yount is passionate about people – both his team and their clients – and has embedded a philosophy of inclusivity and positivity across the company, Nelson adds. “He really cares about people.”
Why choose Southwest Funding?
It’s a big business with a small-business, family feel. “We’re not a bank or credit union or gigantic lender. We really care about our people, and we personally care about everyone who walks through our door.” Nelson says.
- Very streamlined and client friendly process – “We pride ourselves on how client focused we are and how we made this the most streamlined it can possibly be,” says Nelson. From start to finish, buying a home can be challenging, but Southwest Funding’s client-friendly approach makes the mortgage process straightforward.
- Trust – “By the time I get to funding and closing the mortgage, I can know more about people than their own parents know about them,” Nelson says. “We review every aspect of their credit scores, income, job history and more. I personally value creating a deep trust and rapport with them. The foundation of my business is referrals and repeat customers, so I value treating them right.”
- Accessible first-time homebuyer programs – First-time homebuyer programs include low down payment options – some allowing for as low as three percent down. “You don’t have to go too far outside Seattle to get into some homes that are reasonably priced. The more flexible you are about where you want to live, the more we can help those with lower incomes find homes in the Maple Valley, Enumclaw, Covington, Everett or other areas north,” Nelson says.
- Variety of home loan products – Offering home loan products across the United States, Southwest Funding has funded 50,000 loans, lending billions to homeowners. They offer Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA or VA loans and many different loan options for customer needs.
