PROFESSIONALS GETTING THE BEST DEAL FOR YOU!
Behind the scenes, the professional expertise of a licensed mortgage lender ensures that:
- While other lenders have only a few options, you get best deal for your personal needs from more than 400 loan options.
- A professional is monitoring the bond markets to lock your interest rates at the lowest point before closing.*
- We help you balance your down payment with program requirements for cash reserves to minimize your monthly mortgage payment.
- You’re offered all eligible down payment assistance and no-down payment loan options.**
- You can include renovation costs into your low-interest mortgage, and the loan interest is tax deductible. Renovation options go beyond remodeling to include solar, pools and re-builds. (restrictions apply)
- We provide a fully underwritten pre-approval – not a pre-qualification – so you and Realtors know precisely how much you can buy, your offer is more likely to be accepted, and you can close more quickly than competing bids if necessary.
BUY THE HOME YOU WANT
- Because we have a great local reputation, Realtors know that your Pre-Approval is solid and your offer is more likely to be accepted over competing bids.
- Because you have a Pre-Approval, your deal will close, eliminating risk that the transaction will be delayed or fall out. In fact, we guarantee we will close on time or we’ll waive $1,500 at closing.***
- We communicate and collaborate on your home purchase so you get what you want, even on nights and weekends.

I want to thank Michael and his staff for all of their assistance throughout this entire process. They Really took the time to search and find a loan package that fit our needs.

Mike and his team have been incredibly helpful and patient. We are new home buyers in the crazy California Bay Area market, and it can be a stressful and overwhelming process. Mike and his team answer emails quickly, go above and beyond to get you helpful information, and don't pressure you into making a move that isn't right for you. We are still in the process (haven't found the perfect place yet!), but they have been the positive light in this daunting process. Will definitely continue to work with Mike, and will do so for any other home purchases or refinancing we do moving forward.

I put off refinancing my home for years. I have been the victim of credit fraud and my last lender from when I bought my home was less than forthcoming with all of the consequences of an adjustable mortgage. Needless to say, I have trust issues with giving someone all of my personal information which is why I put it off as long as I did.I was introduced to Imortgage by a friend and found that others I knew had already done business with Michael Stowers and had great experiences. I met with him and his team and explained my fears of the mortgage system. He assured me that Imortgage was different and he followed through with making sure the process was painless and straight forward. He even mentioned that due to the company I worked for, I would qualify for a couple hundred dollars off of the associated costs of the loan.The process was so easy and transparent. That really helped to put me at ease. My wife and I were very happy to finally get out from under that adjustable rate mortgage. When the truth in lending statements came through, the notary and escrow company they are associated with were awesome as well. They met with us at a coffee shop to be able to get things done on time. I didn't even care when I noticed that there were no discounts mentioned on the paperwork. I know if I had brought it up, Michael would have fixed it, but I was just ecstatic about how knowledgeable he was about the market and the options I had available to me. I was saving thousands every year with this refi. Talk about follow through, I received a call from Michael about two weeks after the closing. He was reviewing all of the final docs and realized the discount mistake. They sent me a check ! Now that's worth five stars in my books. I would highly recommend that You give Michael Stowers and his team over at Imortgage a chance to help you the way they helped me.

My experience with Mike Stowers is not limited to the painless refi he helped us through. He and I have known each other since I can remember. I consider him a dear friend now as a result of our doing business together.He served us professionally and very expeditiously. Mr. Stowers has ALWAYS treated me and my family as he would want to be treated if he were in our shoes. I am thankful to have had Mike to call on.BM

Mike got me pre-approved when other banks couldn't, and he closed my home in less than 30 days, even with a major paperwork glitch. Overall the process was very smooth, allowing me to really focus on getting the right home and then moving my family. I can't recommend him highly enough.
