Welcome to Seabright Mortgage!

I believe that mortgage planning is an integral part of an individual or family's overall financial needs.  Whether you are a first-time buyer, move-up buyer, or real estate investor; or are looking to refinance an existing mortgage; I will consider all of your questions and concerns as we review your home finance options.  I believe in open communication and an education based approach, bringing the borrower sound and reliable guidance in the ever changing landscape of residential finance lending.

With complexity at an all time high, and lending standards as tight as ever, you need a lender with the experience and knowledge to guide you through potential challenges toward successful home ownership and a better loan product.  I lean on more than 24 years of local real estate lending experience to give my borrowers the most comprehensive, reliable service available in mortgage lending today.

Please feel free to browse the tools on this page and become familiar with our products and services.  As always, we can be reached with a quick telephone call.  Simply ask for Tom Powers and Seabright Mortgage, and experience the great personalized service your expect from your professional Home Mortgage Consultant.
