He spent 5 years as a national mortgage trainer, so he is well-equipped to find a way to make a loan work and get it to closing.

There are some basic documents required for qualification and underwriting. They include the following:
1. W2 forms for the most recent two years
2. Most recent pay stubs covering a 30-day period
3. Most recent two complete bank statements - all pages
4. Clear picture of driver’s license and social security card
5. If self-employed, include most recent two years of Federal tax returns and1099 forms.
Once these documents and the application are received, they are submitted to the underwriter for review. The underwriter analyzes to ensure the information is as it was presented on the loan application and issues a conditional approval. That is a loan approval with conditions to be met in order to receive a Clear to Close.
Also during this step, the appraisal and title search is ordered and completed. Then my amazing processing staff will work with you and help guide you through meeting the underwriter’s conditions. They can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can reach our Processing Manager, Jamie Chaltain, at 843-491-4912. Once certain conditions have been cleared, you will receive a CD (Closing Disclosure) with all the final figures you will need to know regarding the loan approval. This must be signed three business days prior to your closing date. My team and I are here to help you navigate the entire process.
Once all the conditions for closing have been met, your loan application moves to the closing department where they prepare all the documents necessary for the attorney to guide you through the actual closing appointment. Most attorneys will require a wire sent from your bank to the attorney for any cash due at closing. Some will require certified funds in lieu of a wire.
