An early face-to-face meeting can reduce stress and make for a smoother transaction.

Someone who won’t try to fit you into a box, but knows your unique situation and can craft a mortgage solution to fit YOUR needs.
The Mortgage Process
Having a pre-qualification letter in hand before you begin shopping for a home shows sellers that you’re serious about making an offer and ensures that you’re on target to qualify for a mortgage on your home of choice.
Find the Perfect House
You’ve already begun your search online—likely, for several months. Now, it’s time to choose a CENTURY 21 New Millennium REALTOR® with whom to tour homes, write a competitive offer and leverage your pre-approval to get you to a ratified contract.
Select the Financing Product
Our First County Mortgage loan officers will work with you to find the best customized solution that fits your needs.
Apply for the Loan and Collaborate during Processing
Assuming you’ve already completed the prequalification process, your loan officer will update and submit your official loan application. You may need to submit additional documents or meet additional criteria during this stage.
