As a qualified Southlake Mortgage professional who has been helping people find the right mortgage solutions for their purchase and refinance needs for several years, I am ready to help you and your family find the mortgage product that fits your lifestyle.

Welcome to Assurance Home Loans.

Our Work Flow

Discuss and Decide

The very first step is for us to review your situation and what you want to accomplish. Then decide which option is best for you.

Build a File

The next step is to build a file with documentation to support your loan scenario.

Underwrite and Close

The last step is to have your file approved and cleared by underwriting and then sign the final papers.

What kind of clients do you work with?
We help real people finance and refinance homes, and have done it for over 20 years. Whether you are a first-time buyer, a move-up or move-down buyer, a current homeowner looking to restructure to a lower rate or term, or an investor adding to your inventory, we can help.
Do I qualify?
This is an important question for purchase and refinance loans alike. Everyone’s situation and goals are different — let’s get on the phone and create a game plan.
What is your turn around time?
Each individual financial situation determines the steps necessary to finalize the mortgage. In our experience, purchase loans happen very quickly because there is a deadline — everyone is motivated. They generally take 14 to 30 days. Refinancing tends to take a bit longer — 21 to 45 days — typically because the homeowner responds to requests more slowly than on a purchase.

You have a CHOICE when you need mortgage financing, and  it is a PRIVILEGE to be considered for the job! Our mission is to provide professional advice, efficient processes, and unwavering integrity to help you reach your goals. Ultimately, we hope to EARN your goodwill and nurture FRIENDSHIPS  so you think of us whenever you need a mortgage.
