Helping Homebuyers Ascend to Home Ownership

Buying a home is a lot like climbing a mountain. You have a vision of where you want to be, a dream of what you want to achieve. But there are steps between where you are now and realizing that dream.

Summit Mortgage is a company that’s specially built to help buyers easily ascend to their dream. At Summit Mortgage, we’ve been guiding families home for 27 years. We know what’s ahead of you – the terrain, the ecosystem. We’ll make your ascent a smooth one.

Everyone who works with us has their own, personal guide for their journey. They have the wisdom, the training, and the experience to get you to the top.

And our guides don’t work alone. They’re supported by a perfectly-balanced set of resources – the right people, and the right technology – to assist with your climb. At each step of the process, we have “basecamps” where you’ll find everything you need to help you along your path.

All in all, it’s a high-level experience for one of the highest points in everyone’s life: home ownership.
