Dale Sorensen Real Estate Brevard and Shelter Mortgage Form a Partnership
Dale Sorensen Real Estate Brevard (DSRE Brevard), the number one real estate firm in Brevard County, recently confirmed a new partnership with Melbourne based private and direct lender Shelter Mortgage Company.
The partnership is part of the company’s continued expansion along the Space Coast. “It is extremely valuable to our clients and associates to have Shelter Mortgage Company available in-house to assist in financing and funding home purchases,” Managing Partner Dale Sorensen said. “Giving clients finance options, whether it’s through the purchase of the property or using other investment properties to fund the purchase, allows us to continue to ensure servicing our clients is our number one priority. I am confident our partnership with Shelter Mortgage Company will also present more opportunity for DSRE to grow in the Brevard marketplace.”
The partnership will allow DSRE Brevard the opportunity to offer customers a localized and personable experience, with quick and efficient transaction settlements all under the same roof. “We have been the Space Coast’s local lender for over 16 years,” said Shelter Mortgage Company Senior Vice President Natasha C. Spencer. “Our loan officers are experts in the industry, particularly with the luxury market and jumbo loans (loans which are greater than $417,000). This is especially important right now since a lot of buyers are considering purchasing while interest rates are at an all-time low and saving their cash for investments.” Shelter Mortgage has a product for all buyers, including FHA, VA, Rural Housing loans, condo financing or a simple conventional loan. In fact, Shelter Mortgage is one of just a handful of direct lenders to be approved by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae. “Because of that, we are able to offer our customers more financing options,” said Spencer. “We work closely with each person and individual situation, so we have the flexibility to fit each customer with the right loan product with a dedicated underwriting team for Brevard. Customers can expect faster closing times, and overall a better, higher-quality experience.” Dale Sorensen Real Estate has a proven track record of a deep commitment to Brevard County. The company entered the community less than three years ago when it purchased the former Danish Furniture building on 5th Avenue on the Barrier Island. A year later, they opened a second location in the Viera/Suntree neighborhood, then renewed their commitment with an expansion of the 5th Avenue office. They now have over 80 agents and staff and in 2015 managed more than $171 million dollars’ worth of transactions. Sorensen said the partnership between DSRE and Shelter Mortgage deepens the commitment both companies have to the community. “We are more than partners; we are neighbors who live, work and play in this community. We know and love the neighborhoods we work in.” It’s that statement that proves the community will ultimately be the one to reap the benefits of this new partnership.
