What Makes Us Different?

HOMESTAR is a full-service mortgage banker controlling every aspect of the loan process with in-house processing, underwriting, closing, and funding of each mortgage transaction. Having an in-house team separates HOMESTAR from other mortgage companies because it is easier for HOMESTAR mortgage lenders to communicate quickly and effectively with each department needed to close a transaction. HOMESTAR is also proud to be named the #1 Mortgage Purchase Lender in Georgia for 2017 and ranked one of the Top 100 Mortgage Purchase Lenders Nationwide for 2017.

From Our President:

“When it comes to mortgage loan originator satisfaction, you will find that HOMESTAR ranks among the highest. As a mortgage loan originator, you can expect that each department within HOMESTAR is accessible, approachable, and always willing to go the extra mile. HOMESTAR has built a culture where all of operations understands the value of closing a compliant, properly documented file while embracing our sales force and customer needs. Every individual at HOMESTAR remembers that, at the end of the day, a family is counting down the days until they are living in their new home.”

— Wes Hunt, President

What HOMESTAR's Mortgage Loan Originators Are Saying

“Who would ever think switching mortgage companies would allow someone to double their business?! Well that happened to ME! I don’t call what I do a job…I call it a career! HOMESTAR has the best underwriting, processing, closing, and even down to post-closing. This is a great group of people that I enjoy working alongside, which makes the long hours and work on weekends much easier to handle. Our management team is quick to help us when needed, or as I call it “when my hair is on fire.” I can’t ever imagine working anywhere else!” — Branch Manager

“After spending my first years with mortgage brokers, I joined HOMESTAR in 2004 and have never looked back. Company support, direct communication with underwriters, compensation plan, and ‘outside the box’ thinking have helped triple my earnings in the last few years. Great company and opportunity!” — Division Manager

“As a mortgage loan originator, the people you work with are often more important than the product that you offer. Thankfully, at HOMESTAR, both are equally wonderful. HOMESTAR provides me the tools to be able to give my clients a full array of mortgage products with competitive rates and a quick decision from our local underwriters. These same underwriters take the time to personally discuss loan scenarios in an effort to close the deal. Having spent many years with a large, regional mortgage company, I cannot begin to tell you how refreshing it is to have a personal relationship with everyone in the company, even our President. He is a man who has been in my shoes, taking that loan application and pouring over tax returns, all to help provide housing to the people that need it. Joining HOMESTAR was an easy decision for me because they truly provide our clients “the easiest way home.” — Mortgage Loan Originator
