Who We Are
Mark Taylor is one of the "white hats" of the mortgage industry. If this current real estate market was a western movie, Mark would be the lone cowboy riding into town to save everyone from the perils of his mustache-twirling competitors who haven't invested the time and effort Mark has to understand every available mortgage solution from the simplest 30-year fixed product to the most challenging mortgage scenarios.
Mark uses his 13 years of experience in the mortgage industry to ensure every deal is a sound investment for his clients. He also specializes in structuring real estate portfolios for investment and retirement needs and has earned numerous awards for his dedication to service and high productivity.
