Recommended Home Mortgage

Ready to buy your first home or refinance your home mortgage? Dat and Aaron are excited to partner with these recommended and trusted mortgage lenders!


For years physicians and dentists have had access to “physician home loans” or “doctor mortgages”, which allowed qualifying doctors to exclude student loan debts, purchase high value homes with less than twenty percent down, and require less than two years’ history for self-employed and independent contractors. But now, mortgage lenders can offer similar underwriting guidelines and underwriting flexibility for the typical optometrist and several other high income professional designations.
