The Federal Housing Administration was created in 1934 as an effort to bolster homes sales during the Depression. By financially guaranteeing loans, the FHA lifts much of the risk of non-payment and foreclosure from private lenders. It is important to remember that the FHA is not a lender; they just guarantee your loan.

Made My House-Buying Experience Great

I used Derek and his company when I purchased a condo on the Las Vegas strip. Everyone said that banks were giving a hard time for people looking for a loan for this building. However, Derek personally called me and walked me through the process, and assured me that I would be able to get the loan. Within 30 days, we not only got the loan but closed escrow. I highly recommend Derek and his team!

We are loyal to Derek Parent and his team

Derek is always a pleasure to work with. I’ve known him for several years now and anyone that I know of that is looking to purchase a property I always refer them to Derek. He takes the time to answer questions and really cares about his clients. It’s nice that he stayed in touch with us long after we’ve purchased our properties going through him and his team.

Great Experience, Always on Top of Things, Great Communication

They were always responsive to my needs and allowed for a smooth process. All of the processing took place in a timely manor and there were no hold ups on their end. I would highly recommend this group to anyone in need of a mortgage.
