Ocala Mortgage Consultants

In today's mortgage landscape, there are plenty of mortgage lenders in Ocala that will be happy to take your application, send it to their processing center, and hope that it closes on time. It doesn't take much training or experience to fill out an application and gather a few documents.  That's where we are different - we are mortgage consultants who help you plan the purchase or refinance of what is probably your largest asset.   Meet our mortgage consulting team...

Not your ordinary mortgage lenders...

Unlike ordinary mortgage lenders, our mortgage consultants are committed to helping you make well-informed mortgage financing decisions.  We will help you evaluate personal goals to determine if they are practical and achievable, and advise you regarding the various loan products available. Our job as mortgage consultants is to help you integrate the correct mortgage loan into your overall long and short-term investment strategies.

When was the last time your mortgage lender said, "Not only can I help you with a mortgage so you can purchase a home, but let me show you how the advantages of home ownership can help you eliminate debt, become more financially stable, and help secure your future"? That's how Landmark Mortgage Planners are different.  As our name implies - we are more like mortgage consultants or planners, but we don't cost any more than other mortgage lenders in Ocala.

Not your ordinary mortgage processing...

Many of the mortgage lenders and mortgage brokers in Ocala will send your application to a processing center in another state where it becomes very difficult to communicate and get your loan done. Our processing staff, is not only right here in the same building as our mortgage consultants, but Landmark has the very best processors in town. We are frequently complimented by customers and underwriters alike, for the proficiency and attention to detail on our files.

The Mortgage Planning Difference

Our number one goal is to enable our clients to achieve their Freedom Point quickly.  That's the point where your assets are greater than debts.  We do this by creating a personalized mortgage plan complete with financial resources, strategies, tools, and software.  This plan will help you eliminate unnecessary, non-preferred debt, increase safety, liquidity, and your overall rate of return, while decreasing your interest expense and tax exposure by using proven strategic equity concepts. Whether this sounds way too complicated or right up your alley, our mortgage consultants will help devise a plan custom-made just for you.
