Universal Lending

Universal Lending Corporation was founded nearly 40 years ago on the principle that our customers deserve individual and specialized attention throughout the mortgage process. This is why we have one of the highest rates of repeat borrowers in the business. We also help make the mortgage process smoother for buyers and sellers with our proprietary Performance Guarantee, which provides a Certificate of Qualification, virtually ensuring that buyers have the finances available to make an offer on a property and close quickly and easily.

Universal Lending has helped individuals and families from every walk of life achieve their dreams of responsible home ownership. Our mortgage professionals embrace our passion for customer care and educate and empower each potential home buyer throughout the entire process, so you make informed, considerate decisions that ensure your home mortgages fit your budgets and keep your families financially secure.

In fact, that is our mission: People Helping People Achieve Their Dreams.

    USA Mortgage

    At USA Mortgage, our mission is the unrelenting pursuit of perfection, and we pride ourselves on the lending excellence and the superior level of service that our status as a mortgage lender enables us to provide.

    This means that USA Mortgage will see you through all aspects of the loan process from the time you meet one of our mortgage professionals to the day you sit at the closing table, and ultimately fund your loan with its own money—no waiting for the corporate bigwigs halfway across the country to cut your check! To borrowers and Realtors©, being a mortgage lender means you can expect a home financing experience free of hassles and headaches. The complete control means having in-house operations such as processing, underwriting, closing, and funding.

    Here at USA Mortgage, we follow a very organized and stable system to achieve the best results for you. We have created a routine on every file to be very efficient and accurate for your benefit.

    As our underwriters are reviewing the files, they may require additional information. The housing market is changing quickly, and this will add more guidelines and new documents to our lending department. We will be in touch with you regarding these conditions required. The goal is to get these back to the underwriting ASAP.

Amy makes certain her clients get to the closing table on time with a seamless experience. She is a true partner to her network of real estate agents and recognizes that relationships ultimately help everyone, especially the clients.

    Amy enjoys spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren and taking her pups for walks on the beach.

    Brenda is a native of southwest Missouri who relocated to Florida 3 years ago. She is a former business owner and has a background in banking, finance, and contract management. Brenda’s loan offerings include Conventional, VA, FHA, Investment, and Condo loans. VA loans are special to Brenda since her husband served in the Air Force, and her father and grandfather served in the Army. Providing great communication and customer service throughout the home buying process is what makes Brenda stand out with her clients and Realtor partners.
