Many people hesitate to contact an attorney until they absolutely must. Often times it is too late in the process to take full advantage of all that the attorney could have offered. Services such as estate planning, Medicaid and asset protection planning and trust or estate administration benefit from the long view. This means that it is better to start early. No estate is too small to plan for.

Mortgage Lending

Advisors Choice Lending was designed from the ground up to partner our products and services to the independent financial advisor.  We took a common product like a mortgage and combined it with the skills of a financial advisor to make mortgages a key part of long-term financial plans.  We believe a mortgage should be obtained through a more detailed process that truly benefits the end user. Advisors Choice Lending created the Financial Advisor Loan Origination system of mortgage and loan origination. The Mission of Advisors Choice Lending is to deliver a better mortgage product to the consumer by integrating financial advisors.
