We pride ourselves on being easy to do business with, being responsive, and able to work swiftly to solve issues that arise during the loan process, keeping all parties updated along the way.

OUR EMPLOYEES: HOMESTAR cannot have our clients feel like we are a part of their family unless our employees feel like they are a part of our family. We treat each other the way we want to be treated, believe in a comfortable and safe work environment, and that everyone should receive fair compensation for helping our clients. HOMESTAR's client's standards are high, and we hold each other accountable to meet those standards.

We assure our clients uncompromising confidentiality and complete honesty. Practical and realistic solutions can be developed while maintaining the dignity and integrity of all parties.

COMMUNITY: We raise our children in the communities we serve. Therefore, our goal is for HOMESTAR to be a company that our families are proud of.
