Edina Realty Mortgage Speaks About Mortgage Market

An Important Message from Todd Johnson,
President and CEO of Edina Realty Mortgage

To Our Customers,

The dramatic events taking place in the financial services industry and economy are historic in scope and proportion. You may be asking yourself, “What does this mean for me as a home buyer or home seller? When I want to obtain a mortgage, will there be funds available?” The answer is simple: at Edina Realty Mortgage, it’s business as usual. Yes, we continue to originate mortgages for home purchases and refinances. Our wide product range features FHA, VA, MHFA, Conventional, Jumbo, Relocation, Renovation, and Reverse Mortgages. We are committed to helping as many customers as possible enjoy the personal and financial benefits of homeownership. We provide competitive, fully disclosed, and responsible and fair pricing for all borrowers.

A Solid, Stable and Secure Lender

We want to assure you that we remain a solid, stable, and secure mortgage lender. We are a well-capitalized company, and we hold fast to our long-standing responsible lending principles. Edina Realty was one of the first real estate companies to offer integrated mortgage services more than twenty-five years ago. For over ten years, Edina Realty Mortgage has been a joint venture between Wells Fargo Home Mortgage (a division of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.) and HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., is the only bank in the United States, and one of only two banks worldwide, to have the highest credit rating from both Moody’s Investors Services “AAA,” and Standard & Poor’s Rating Services, “AAA.”

We Are Committed to Your Successful Closing

We stand by our word. Our exclusive On-time Closing Guarantee (1) ensures that you will close on time AND for the amount quoted on the Good Faith Estimate, or you will get money back. Are you already working with another lender? We will be happy to review your Good Faith Estimate and Truth-in-Lending Disclosure Statement. This no-obligation second opinion from us takes just few minutes, and we may be able to provide reductions in interest and/or closing costs. (2)

As a responsible lending leader, we work closely with our customers to help you reach your personal and financial goals through homeownership. Our team works hard to know you, understand your needs, and listen to you. We put you at the center of everything we do.

Thank you for trusting us with your business.
