Conforming Loan

If you have established credit history and the property meets standard guidelines, you could qualify for a Conforming Loan with competitive market rates. 30-Year and 15-Year fixed rate mortgages with a limit of up to $765,600 available.

Non-Conforming Loan

Non-Conforming (or Portfolio) loans offer some flexibility if the property or your borrowing situation does not meet conforming loan guidelines, loan amounts between $756,500 to $2 million for Jumbo Loans and available for purchasing or refinancing a home.

Fixed Rate Loan

Fixed Rate mortgages have a set interest rate so that the monthly principal and interest payment stays the same for the life of the loan. We have 15 and 30 year Fixed Rate loans that'll help to give you an ease of mind when buying your home in Hawaii.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) Loan

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) Loan features a fixed interest rate for an introductory period of time (either 5, 7, or 10 years). After the introductory period, the interest rate and payments may adjust higher or lower based on market interest rates.
