The InterLinc Mortgage Services Difference

At The Van Meter Mortgage Group we believe that in order to deliver the “service without exception” experience we must have the ability to control every aspect of the mortgage process. As a mortgage banker, The Van Meter Mortgage Group provides in-house origination, processing, underwriting, and closing. What that means to you as a customer or referral partner is that we do not have to rely on anyone but our own team members to get your loan closed “on time and as agreed”.
