Welcome to my website!

Helping families realize the dream of homeownership is my passion. Over the years, I have been able to assist many families obtain financing, many of them for the first time, and it never gets old. To me, it's always been more than a job. The satisfaction and pride I feel each time one of my Borrowers becomes a Homeowner is indescribable. Each one is an emotional investment for me as every Borrower is more than just a loan, they are friends, neighbors & my community.

My extensive experience as a Loan Officer and knowledge of the industry allows me to tailor each loan to meet the specific needs of each individual. Everyone’s story is different, so no one loan will fit everyone’s needs. My job is to find that perfect fit. Buying a home is the single most important investment we make. Although it can seem intimidating, I am dedicated to making the process a positive and rewarding experience for you, and I welcome the opportunity to earn your business and your trust.

Mary and her staff are professional, personable and effiecent. 

I had a client who was within 2 weeks of closing and was not happy with the service they were receiving from another lender.....Mary was able to jump in and take

over the client...and YES, we were able to close on time! 

If you are looking for that 'GO TO' lender, Mary is the lender for you!

We found a great home outside of town.  We instantly knew this was "the one".  We had to move quickly and I contacted Mary Thorne immediately.  We went from discovering the home to moving in within 30 days.  Amazing!  Mary was in constant contact and made it all happen.  No easy task.  Mary's depth of experience really shows.  She has done my home loans for over ten years and I would never consider anyone else.  She is the best!

We have worked with many mortgage loan officers during our 20 years of marriage and having bought and sold 10 homes.  By far Mary Thorne is the most competent, friendly and helpful officer we have ever known.  My wife was a mortgage loan officer for 10 years before we married and so she knows the industry well.  She has nothing but praise for what Mary has done to help us.  In every situation, Mary has exceeded our wishes and offered suggestions on how to get superior results.  I can't say enough good things about her.  She is the consumate professional that you can feel at ease with and know that she will do what is in your best interest.

I have worked with Mary on several transactions over the years. Her team is professional and dependable. I recommend working with Mary on any of your home loan needs as she meets commitments, offers competitive rates and offers excellent customer service!

When my mortage with USAA went off the rails over a silly technicality, Mary was able to step in and help.  She got a new loan with similar terms approved in under 2 weeks, which allowed me to make the originally scheduled closing date. I don't where we'd be without her - probably homeless.  Thanks Mary.
