ABOUT FINANCE HOME AMERICA MORTGAGE
Finance Home America, a division of Eustis Mortgage Corp., is a full-service professional mortgage banker offering a host of diverse, flexible mortgage packages for customers with a variety of backgrounds and needs. Whether you’re interested in purchasing a new home, refinancing your current home or renovating your existing home, Finance Home America is here to help you find the loan options that fit your individual needs. We make the home loan experience simple by providing you with personalized service from our mortgage exports and ensuring that you are empowered with knowledge from a variety of resources.
Eustis Mortgage Corp (“EMC”), located in New Orleans, La, has been in business since 1956. EMC is licensed in LA, TX, MS, and AL. Most lenders have similar products, pricing, technology and systems; however, we think that many leave the business because they do not have long term perspective. This long-term perspective helps us differentiate between the latest fad and a true change in the industry that we embrace, manage, and use to create value for our customers and staff. We have a strong and genuine belief in the “building customers for life” principle of business and referrals from previous customers and local real estate professionals have always delivered the majority of our production.
All of the processing, underwriting, and closing is performed in Houston Tx with a staff that has been together for over 15 years. Unlike most Mortgage Bankers, our operations staff is available to meet without borrower(s), realtors, and builders to discuss individual loans and to keep abreast of the many changes occurring in our business. We conduct training classes to our clients relating to a vast array of topics; from product guidelines, sharing marketing strategies and designing marketing material to assist our clients in their individual business endeavors.
We are Finance Home America. You’re more than a number to us. You are the reason we are in this business.
We've been in the mortgage business since 1956 and
many of our clients have been coming back again
and again since we opened our doors over 60 years ago.
They know they can always rely on us for the information
and service they expect and deserve. And you can, too.
