Popular Loan Products


Conventional mortgage loans, also known as conforming loans, are backed by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) or the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac). Fannie and Freddie both have low, 3% down options with income restrictions while standard conventional loans require 5% down or more. 

The Conventional Loan limit is $647,200 in most Florida counties.


​Jumbo mortgages, also referred to as non-conforming mortgage loans, are intended for luxury properties and those in the most competitive real estate markets. They exceed the conventional conforming limits set by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac).


VA mortgage loans are intended to assist Active Duty Military Members, Veterans, and selected spouses in obtaining home loans with no down payment and are guaranteed by the US Department of Veteran Affairs. 

Qualified VA borrowers can receive 100% financing with no money down and, as of January 1, 2020, the loan limits have been removed.


Already a homeowner? A Cash-Out refinance allows you to convert equity to cash, in order to pay off high-interest debt, cover home improvement costs, etc. 

A Rate-and-Term refinance, as the name implies, allows a borrower to obtain a lower interest rate or more favorable loan term.

Buying a condo in FL was more complicated than I had expected. Doug was very knowledgeable and helpful in guiding me through all the steps. He was also an advocate when issues arose. . . I could not have had better service. I am happy to recommend Doug.
