Buying a home is one of the biggest things you’ll ever do — but it doesn’t have to be the most traumatic. This is where a great agent and fabulous loan officer come in. There are 3 steps to buying a house: 1) Figure out how much you can afford 2) Get a loan pre-approval and 3) Look for a house.

I have 2 preferred lenders who have all been tested, vetted and gone through trials by fire. They are the best in the business. If you’re buying a home in Los Angeles, you won’t find better. Since they’ll be at your side every step of the way, you should have a chat with one or both and determine who is the best fit. There is no cost or obligation to get a loan pre-approval.
