Chad Hansen

Broker, Owner – President


Chad has worked for the big box retail mortgage companies. He saw inconsistency in service with lack of care or connection with borrowers at every company. Loan agents passing along the minimum, usually scripted information to clients leaving them uninformed and powerless from manipulative tactics. Processing and turn times were cumbersome with loans stuck and slow moving in heavy pipelines.


 With his vast accumulated consumer lending product knowledge Chad stepped out on his own to become an independent mortgage broker. He sees the gap in the market for a low cost, competitive lender that can be straight and honest. His professionalism, integrity and fair business practices are refreshing to both borrowers and agents he’s had the pleasure of working with.

Chad prides himself on taking the time to explain the most complicated situations and really connecting with his clients. The business of finance doesn’t have to be so complicated! Building and keeping a strong referral base is his forte.

About Us
It's a lake love story!

Chad and Dawn have had a dreamy relationship with the Colorado river and desert since they were kids. Chad’s family vacationed at Black Meadow Landing where he learned how to ski and Dawn went to her first enduro race at two months old.

Together, they started exploring all Lake Havasu has to offer year around. Summer heat, fishing days, destination trips, channel cruises and barbeques. Winter events, concerts, races, hikes and off-roading treks into the wild.

Living in Huntington Beach they were the weekend warriors. Stealing away on Friday’s and heading back before the sun came up on Monday. There came a time when they asked themselves…..how can we live in this vacation oasis full time?

They finally took the plunge and left the city life along with corporate America in the dust. Seeing more friends and family now than they ever did. Their home is more like a retreat with a pool and enjoy watching those gorgeous Arizona sunsets. They couldn’t be happier taking the big leap!
