Superior Mortgage Programs and Service

Purchase Lenders Group, a division of Bay Equity Home Loans, was recently opened by top mortgage executives Jason Katz and Andre Kwan. The San Diego-based firm provides residential mortgage financing for both purchases and refinances. “We are a purchase-focused group with significantly more access to financing programs than the majority of the local competition. Our hand-picked team of high-level originators and sales support staff are all located here in San Diego, so we are a lender with exceptional understanding of the local market,” explained Katz. Together, he and Kwan bring experience, knowledge, and relationships that provide clients with superior support during the loan process.

Purchase Lenders Group has direct access to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae, providing customers the best programs that institutional lenders have to offer. In addition to these relationships, the firm has niche financing options available via alliances with credit unions, hedge funds, and private investors. As an experienced mortgage broker and entrepreneur, Katz has managed several branches of mortgage companies and has navigated through thousands of loan scenarios. “Over the last fifteen years in the business, I have acquired knowledge that enables me to find creative solutions for the savviest customer, as well as for some of the toughest loans to get financed,” stated Katz, who has been consistently voted one of the best mortgage brokers in North County.

“They know the right players in the industry to start with, and are very knowledgeable about the process, anticipating critical issues before they arose. Jason is extremely customer-oriented, and very business savvy in best representing the interests of his clients. We would highly recommend Jason and the team, and will certainly rely on them for our next real estate transaction.”

As a member of the local community, Katz is also committed to making a difference for San Diego residents. He is currently the president of the Miramar Semper Fidelis Rotary Club, one of only three Rotary clubs in the world that meets on a military installation. The mission of the group is to support active duty Marines, Sailors and their dependents in Southern California. “Rotary has been a big part of my life over the last four years. I include Rotary’s Four-Way Test into my business practice:Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?” revealed Katz. According to Katz, the Purchase Lenders Group staff is fully committed to providing an individualized mortgage experience and a robust product offering that meets the needs of every homebuyer.
