Your Local Lender

Directors Mortgage likes to do things a little differently. Rather than casting a net over the entire country, our Mortgage Specialists focus on their local communities. We’re always focused on you—whether it’s a late-night email or an in-person meeting, we’ll answer all your questions and listen to your concerns, ensuring that we meet your needs and get your loan closed according to your schedule.

How we can help: 

  • Individual Consultation: Together, we’ll go through a relocation needs assessment as a first step. This allows us to build your mortgage on a foundation of mutual understanding.
  • Peace of Mind: We’ll make sure you get pre-approved before you move. 
  • Working Within the Guidelines: Our attentive, skilled Relocation Team will take note of your relocation deadlines, turning your schedule into our schedule. 
  • Understanding Your Options: Unlike most big banks, we carefully customize mortgages for each individual’s needs rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. 
  • Direct Billing: Your reimbursable relocation costs and bill are sent directly to your employer immediately after closing. You’ll get to focus on settling into your new house instead of worrying about paperwork.
  • Subsidy Administration: We support mortgage subsidy programs across all our home loan options.

Direct Advantage Pre-Approval

The process of securing a home loan is not without its surprises, but Directors Mortgage is committed to making your relocation as stress-free as possible. Our Direct Advantage Pre-Approval program provides extra peace of mind. If we issue a Direct Advantage Pre-Approval Letter and cannot close the loan due to financing complications, we will refund 100% of your earnest money up to $5,000.

Your offer, accompanied by our Direct Advantage pre-approval letter, will give your Realtor the ability to truly represent you from a position of strength, backed by a local company with a 20-year track record.
