About Van Melick

I started in the mortgage industry in 2004, working with investors purchasing residential and commercial real estate. Since the beginning I have focused on working with clients who can fully document their income and assets. Because those clients trusted me to work on difficult real estate transactions, I have the expertise and knowledge to help clients with the most complex financial situations.

The skills I have perfected in analyzing investment real estate have not only provided me with the tools to be a consultant for the seasoned real estate investor but for the first time home buyer as well. I believe one of the most important things a loan officer should be is a trusted advisor for the borrower, an advisor that seeks to understand each borrower’s unique situation and works to find the best possible financing solution to fit that borrower’s needs.

Buying a home can be an emotional experience for people. I work to provide my clients with honest, practical advice about financing the single largest purchase of their lives. Every buyer deserves to feel confident that their lender will perform above their expectations. I strive to instill that confidence in every one of my clients.

  • Van is easy to talk to, and we really trusted him and his advice. Buying our first home was a smooth process.
