Home Loan Types

Conventional Loans

A conventional mortgage loan is a “conforming” loan (it meets the requirements for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac). Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are government sponsored operations that buy mortgages from lenders and sell them...

FHA Loans

FHA loans are backed by the US Government. The interest rates are traditionally lower, and you only need a 3.5% down payment. FHA loans have less stringent credit guidelines compared to conventional mortgages...

VA Loans

VA helps Service members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms. No downpayment is required...

Home Loan Refinance

With a rate-and-term refinance, the current mortgage is replaced with a new interest rate and term length. With a cash-out refinance, the current mortgage is replaced with a loan larger than what is left to pay on the home, so the surplus can be received in cash.

Self Employed
Home Loans

To be eligible for a home loan while self-employed you will be asked to document the following: Income stability, the location and nature of your self-employment, the financial strength of your business, and the ability of your business...

Jumbo Loans

When a property is too expensive for a conventional conforming loan, a jumbo loan is a mortgage used to finance it. In most counties, the maximum amount for a conforming loan is $647,200 , as determined by the Federal Housing Finance...

We decided to refi to use some of the equity in our home for updates and repairs. Our bank claimed we didn't qualify for a VA refi. We were referred to Aaron by our previous Real Estate agent from Bend Dreams Realty. We have had 8 mortgages over our lives and Aaron and his staff were the most responsive and helpful out of all the financial people we have had to deal with. He is easy going and has no problem answering whatever questions you have without attitude. There were a few communication problems with the lender but Aaron and company jumped in and helped pull things together. With Aaron there is no such thing as a lack of communication. If you need a mortgage you won't go wrong with Aaron.

Don't shop Banks for a loan. Call Aaron. We needed cash to buy a house, and fast! Our bank gave us poor options, and a loan process of 5-8 weeks. Same story from another major bank. On an off-chance remark to our real estate agent, she suggested Aaron. He knew of a lender with better loan terms (loan amount and rate) who could close quickly. 3.5 weeks later we had the cash in our bank and are closing on a new house in 3 days. Aaron and his team were on-it the whole way. the process was straight forward and allowed us to make a winning cash offer on a new house, in this challenging market. Thanks Aaron!

Aaron helped my family of three secure a loan in one of the craziest markets we have experienced. The process was extremely exhausting for both my husband and I; however, Aaron navigated the process with ease. He is extremely talented, professional, thorough, kind, and cares about the financial health of our family...not just securing a loan. He assured us that he would be with us along the journey until the right home came along and this was exactly the case! It took patience and a ton of work for Aaron. He handled everything flawlessly and continued to have great communication with both my husband and I throughout the entire process. When looking for someone to help finance our home, we wanted someone with integrity, someone that would actually understand the importance of home ownership to us…Aaron does! We cannot speak higher of him and would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

We had to switch mortgage brokers 10 days into a 30 day escrow. Our realtor recommended Aaron Callahan and we couldn't be more thrilled that she did. Within 5 hours of our first conversation, Aaron had us pre-approved and our rate locked. He and his assistant Mara are machines! They knocked down every wall, called in every favor, pushed back on the lender when they needed to and ultimate helped us to get a great rate and close on time. Both Aaron and Mara are extremely responsive staying in constant communication every step of the way. Aaron is my new go-to broker. I won't do another loan without him. If I could give him 10 stars, I would.

Our realtor suggested we use Aaron for our loan. She was very confident in his ability to make it happen for my family! From the beginning of the process, he was very responsive and let us know exactly what we needed each step of the way! We had a tricky loan, and he would communicate all day and evening (even on the weekends if necessary) to make sure we didn’t skip a beat to make the loan possible! I really enjoyed working with him and his assistant Mara, and I am so fortunate that he got us into our cozy home on some property! We look forward to working with him again in the future! If there is a will, Aaron will find a way!

Aaron is a rock star in our family! He made a difficult loan process in an extremely stressful market look easy and we will always be so grateful to him. He went above and beyond answering my questions after hours, being there for every offer we put in, all the way to holding our hands at the signing table. We don’t say this lightly… we give him our highest recommendation!
