Meet Rayce Robinson, Our Go-To Mortgage Broker

Financing real estate deals these days can be challenging, but doable with the right people. We highly recommend our preferred mortgage broker Rayce Robinson – we’ve been working with him for 10 years! Check out his 4 minute video that covers the difference between an FHA loan and a conventional loan.

Rayce has a wealth of information on his website, and is happy to answer any questions you may have about your mortgage options.

We encourage our clients to get prequalified with Rayce. You’re not committed to using him, but he is able to help us get your offer approved when you find the right house.
