Why Choose a Mortgage Correspondent?

  • Traditional Bank or Mortgage Broker

    A Traditional Bank offers many financial products and services. One of the services offered by banks is mortgage financing and offers limited selection of mortgage options and a very defined range of interest rates for the home loan needs of their customers.

    A Mortgage Broker specializes in offering the services of other mortgage direct lenders. Their pricing can be competitive because each Mortgage Broker has access to a variety of interest rates and programs. However, a Mortgage Broker gathers paperwork from a borrower and must depend on other lenders to underwrite, draw the necessary documents, and fund their loans. This can significantly limit their flexibility and control of the transaction having to depend on others to meet the targeted deadline.

  • Mortgage Correspondent

    Mares Mortgage is a Direct Lender or Mortgage Correspondent and are specialists in all aspects of loan origination and mortgage services. We have unlimited flexibility to shop the entire lender market. This can provide significant pricing advantages over banks. In addition, Mortgage Correspondents are authorized to fund mortgages on their warehouse lines. They use their own funds, or funds borrowed from a warehouse lender to fund their loans. These in-house capabilities virtually guarantee quick and accurate closings for our customers.

  • Mid Dec. 2014, I joined the race to Refi. By mid Jan. 2015 the termite inspector found termites eating my Loma Vista home. Dismayed, I posted a call for help on the NextDoor website.

    Christian Hernandez not only answered my call for a General Contractor but also answered my non-verbal call for a next door neighbor.

    As we talked and our mutual interests clicked, all my frustrations with my Refi efforts became clear. Christian introduced me to Mares Mortgage and solved my Refi problems!

    Christian Hernandez represents more than Mares Mortgage. He becomes the friend everyone wants on their side.

    Firing a frustrating Lender is not easy and is certainly not a pleasant undertaking. Christian fixed the Refi experience for me and dropped my interest rate by ¾%. That’s right: From 4.125% to 3.375%

    Thank you, Christian.  …  “I love you man!” …
