Thanks for your interest in working with Brad Roche, The Mortgage Planner, and team! You were likely referred to us and we wanted to thank you for trusting the person who sent you. Please be sure to let us know who sent you- we would love to thank them! If you found us another way, we are honored to assist as well. As you may see throughout the site Brad is nationally known in the mortgage industry as an expert in the mortgage process and ongoing service needed when managing your mortgage. You typically start the process speaking with Brad directly and a quick application to then begin the planning stage. He will take it from there with the best way to proceed to meet goals outlined. We create an interactive personalized plan you can view on your mobile device that focuses on the mortgage types and options to excel your designed payoff plan. In addition, a Full-Time Loan Concierge will be assigned to assist you through the process of purchasing or refinancing.
“A lot of people ask about interest rates on the first call when shopping for someone to manage the mortgage- you can find a lot of low offers out there, and I do think it is smart to do your due diligence on your Loan Officer and Lender. When you dig in and prepare a plan, it pays huge for our clients, that’s what we do best. My clients are serviced year after year and it makes a difference. Please understand we don’t claim to be the lowest offer available, but I do believe the streamlined technology, personal service from my team combined with my market experience and monitoring during and after your initial will far exceed any initial discounted offers.” Brad Roche
