Letter from Our CEO - Michael Mikhail
At Stratton Equities, we are working together to bridge the mortgage program gap in the market and provide financial opportunities for those who need it.
In fact, almost all lenders focus on a very narrow range of mortgage programs, limiting their loan officers to the amount of deals they can fund or approve. The lenders are still receiving applications but have to pass over countless transactions that could go directly to their loan officers to grow their individual careers, the company as a whole, or help someone in need. This is why I developed Stratton Equities, to bridge this gap in the mortgage industry.
I've always said, "Mortgages are about programs," which is why our mission has always been to provide the most diverse amount of nationwide mortgage loan programs in the industry under one roof.
Over the years, i've created the best loan options to provide an assortment of boutique mortgage programs in order to work with borrowers all over the country and give them direct access to second to none options.
We are proud of our work, and proud of our loan officers who embody and express our mission and are driven by an urgency to work with our real estate investors. We are likewise inspired by our team members, whose focus and determination to prevail never ceases to amaze me.
Our loan officers are in the position to develop their careers because we have given them the opportunity to say "yes" more than "no," allowing them to close more deals.
The Stratton Equities' team develops and delivers innovative programs that help individuals achieve their real estate investment goals. Our sense of urgency is real. We work every day, in every part of our company, to make an impactful difference in the lives of our borrowers.
10 years ago, I didn't think I would be where I am now or be in a position to help people succeed and grow a company that changes lives and creates opportunities.
I thank everyone who has joined me on this journey and has helped Stratton Equities grow into the innovative company it is today.
