Speak with a Mortgage Expert

The first thing we’ll do is schedule your "Hopes & Dreams" call so we can learn more about you and your homeownership and financial goals. Then we’ll take a look at your current financial situation and make sure you’re on the right path towards your financial goals and owning your dream home.

Meet your Personal Loan Manager

When you find the right home for you and your family, we’ll introduce you to your Personal Loan Manager who will serve as your concierge throughout the rest of the homebuying process. They’ll finalize your loan documents, walk you through the signing and wire transfer process, and ensure you enjoy a quick closing.

The right loan for every financial goal

Fixed Rate Mortgages

The traditional fixed rate mortgage is our most popular program to refinance or buy a home, maximizing your stability with a fixed rate and payment.

• Easier to qualify
• Consistent secure rate

Adjustable Rate (ARM) Loans

Reduce the cost of your mortgage. If you plan on staying in your home short-term or would like lower payments, an ARM loan program might be right for you.

• Lower monthly payment

Jumbo Loans

loanDepot offers low rate Jumbo mortgage programs with the ability to borrow higher amounts.

• Consistent secure rate

VA Loans

loanDepot is authorized to offer special loan programs that are guaranteed by the VA for active military and veterans. These offers are not available to the general public.

• Loans guaranteed by the VA
• For active military and veterans
• VA loan specialists on staff

FHA Loans

Qualify with ease, and put as little as 3.5% down! Originally offered for first time home buyers with bad credit, fixed rate FHA programs are now open to a wider audience.

• Easier to qualify
• Consistent secure rate

Home Equity Loans

Home equity loans are fixed-rate second mortgages giving you access to up to 90% loan-to-value of the equity in your home.

There are three pillars of the Gaylord-Hansen process:
Education • Communication • Execution

Education

Click here to collapse this section

Homeownership is the American Dream, and there are many paths to get there. You shouldn’t give up on your dream of homeownership just because you don’t fit into a one-size-fits-all mortgage. The first step in establishing a relationship with you is understanding your goals and educating you on how to accomplish them.

Think of your Mortgage Expert as your financial coach, helping weigh the pros and cons of each option so you can make the best decision for you and your family and, most importantly, understand why it’s the best decision.

Communication

Click here to collapse this section

We know life doesn’t happen from 9-5, and you shouldn’t get mortgage advice from random people working in call centers that have never owned a home. Once you start the application process, we assign you a Personal Loan Manager that you can call, email, or text (yes even on weeknights and weekends!) without hesitation.

They’ll guide you through each step to ensure everything runs smoothly and deadlines are met. Once you’re in contract, you’ll receive video updates every Friday with an entire summary of activity for the week.

Execution

down arrow icon

Our Mortgage Experts and Personal Loan Managers have the experience and expertise you can rely on. We’re extremely selective in who we hire and all-in on the development of our team to ensure our execution is second-to-none.

We believe our team is our greatest strength. Rather than spread our operations across the country, we handle all of our processing, underwriting, and closing locally and in-house, which allows us to move faster with clearer communication and to execute on deadlines quicker (and on time).

What people are saying about us

“From the beginning to the end of our escrow, everyone on the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team was absolutely amazing! In our previous home purchase, we had a horrible experience with our lender and were very apprehensive going forward. But everyone we worked with (especially Amanda & Asia) was professional, helpful, and always available! We felt supported every step of the way and everyone was just so kind and easy to work with! I would HIGHLY recommend this team to anyone going forward!!! We couldn't be more happy with the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team!”
