Home Loan Help in Grants Pass
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Jena Heth from Diversity Home Lending in Grants Pass Oregon. With well over 20 years of experience in the lending industry, Jena and her team have helped hundreds of families find their way through the mortgage maze.
Jena is also very familiar with the needs of relocating families. “It seems like yesterday when my husband and I were relocating to Grants Pass from California” Jena recalled. “We found ourselves overwhelmed with choices and tasks, and we walked away with some important lessons learned.” One of the most important lessons was to get pre-approved before searching for a home.
“One of the most important lessons was to get pre-approved before searching for a home. It makes a significant difference when looking for a home and negotiating for price in today’s market”
“It makes a significant difference when looking for a home and negotiating for price in today’s market” Jena emphasized. Having been through the process, Jena learned quite a bit and has turned her experience into knowledge that she shares with clients and friends.
Diversity Home Lending opened their office in 2008, at the height of the mortgage meltdown. The uncertainty during that time made finding certain types of loans difficult at best and impossible at worst. In order to assist the Grants Pass home loan industry, Diversity Home Lending joined about five offices, Evergreen Bank and a number of other local mortgage companies in order to share information with one another and better serve people in Southern Oregon.
With new Federal regulations, It became extremely difficult for the “mom and pops” and smaller mortgage companies to compete, so, in 2014, Jena assisted in leading Diversity Home Lending through a merger with Mountain West Financial, Inc. The merger opened the door to tons of loan programs that were not available to “just a broker”. Now Diversity Home Lending has much more exposure, many more loan programs and terrific support, which helps them offer great service to their clientele.
Diversity Home Lending does renovation loans, commercial and construction loans as well FHA and VA. They just love their community; love their relationships with clients and their title companies. The work may be hard but it is very rewarding. Many of their clients remain friends. This is the advantage of a smaller mortgage company versus the big banks.
In March of 2014, Christine Kodysz joined Diversity Home lending as a Mortgage Loan Originator. Christine was born and raised in the Rogue Valley. She is happily married, has raised two wonderful children and enjoys being a Grandmother of three. She has been a licensed mortgage loan originator for over 15 years and is committed to providing her customers with mortgage services that exceed their expectations.
Diversity Home Lending understands that every borrower is different, thus they offer a variety of products to meet individual requirements. They make the process of securing a mortgage simple and straight-forward by offering the latest in financial tools, to enable sound financial choices.
