Why a Novi Mortgage Professional?
When it comes to deciding whether or not to use a broker for your mortgage there are many factors to consider.
For starters, brokers are able to offer you a wider variety of mortgage products thank if you were to work directly through a bank. A bank can only offer you the mortgage products which that specific bank carries whereas a broker can choose a product from any lender they choose. There’s a lot more choice with a broker like Ken and he will be able to find you the perfect mortgage that suits your situation.
The service of brokers are generally free to you as well. Brokers get paid by the lender they decide to obtain a product from, not you. This is an advantage that many people love!
Why should you choose Ken as your Novi mortgage lender, though?
Ken has years of industry experience and is a true professional in his field. Instead of working with a bank employee who probably works in many other areas within the bank as well, Ken’s sole focus is on mortgages. This means that all of the information that you get from him and First Commerce Financial is driven by years of field experience and knowledge that is specialized for mortgages.
With Ken specifically, he will ensure that you are always “in the know” and have knowledge of what is going on with your mortgage. There are no surprises at First Commerce Financial and you can feel confident knowing that what you see is what you get – no information is hidden.
