About us
Not all mortgage lenders are the same
Our Vision
What sets PRMI apart
Everyone wants to be the best option available in the mortgage banking industry. Few agencies follow through by building experience, studying every option, and developing a proven strategy to ensure that every client gets into the home of their dreams without all the stress.

We are that lender. We've been in the industry for more than 16 years and we've tailored our expertise to provide the best options to everyone who walks through our door. Just like buying a home, we don't treat customers as a short-term goal. We want to make sure that you're happy with your purchase 30 years down the line, and friends for life.

A major reason why we're able to provide the best service and the best offers is by keeping everything in-house. So many lenders add unnecessary delays and costs by outsourcing tasks to third-party providers. We will never engage in these practices, keeping all your important information in our office.

Located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we aim to offer the best mortgage lending services in South Florida. We have a full-service support staff to help keep all activity in-house, and we enjoy being part of one of the largest lenders in the country.

Our business is built on performance, clear communication and the satisfaction of our clients. "Client for life" is not just a slogan...it's our whole business.
"My team gives you the best option for closing your house on time, and without needless hassles."
