For the last 25 years, Mortgages Unlimited has helped thousands of individuals and families find financing for their first to forever home.

In addition to their Maple Grove headquarters off of Hemlock Lane, Mortgages Unlimited has eight other locations throughout the Twin Cities area and is licensed in two other states to help community members through the residential home purchasing process.

Finding the right financing option and obtaining a preapproval before starting the home search process provides "buying power" for upcoming homeowners, according to Mortgages Unlimited Marketing Coordinator Marilyn DiCharia. "It's especially important “in a market where multiple offers are occurring," she said, stating it shows sellers you're more of a serious buyer. "We get buyers ready to make a purchase."

Led by President Steve Gatti and CEO Chris Fredin, the mortgage company has created a close-knit, family-friendly business driven to work with clients to find the best residential program to fit their needs. The business has "closed more than $4 billion in residential mortgages" for more than 50,000 customers since 1991, according to the Mortgages Unlimited website.   

Preparation is "key," DiCharia said. Knowing your budget as well as obtaining proof of income and residence can help streamline the loan application process and determine the best loan program to fit your needs. With a staff of approximately 50 (which earned a top small workplace award last year), the locally-owned mortgage company brings years of industry knowledge meet nearly every mortgage need.

"There are many programs that provide down payment assistance programs," DiCharia said. "It's all about education - it doesn't hurt to call and ask questions."
