Earlier this year, we changed our name to American Mortgage Brokers from a name we’ve had for over a decade – Granite Mortgage Company.
The main reason for changing our name to American Mortgage Brokers, is because we are, in fact, a mortgage broker. A mortgage broker is significantly different than a bank or conventional lender and we felt that it was important for this to be reflected in our name.
So why is being a broker significant? Easy answer. As a mortgage broker, we match you with a loan and a lender that best fits your particular situation. We review your financial information and look over an wide variety of lenders to match you with one who will give you the best rate and terms. Simply put, as a broker we can offer you more choices to better fit your needs.
We always liked the “Granite” part of our name. We felt it projected a solid and substantial image. But we didn’t want our new name to be too similar, thus potentially confusing. We figured that since we’re in the business of helping people finance their “American” dreams, American was a good choice to round off our new moniker.
Along with the new name comes a new website, americanmortgagebrokers.com, and a new email address. Beyond that, we’re the same hard-working team that’ll help you find the right mortgage fit for you. We look forward to working with you.
