Welcome to my website

Thank you for visiting my page!  I’m glad you’re here!  My name is Casey Gates.  As your mortgage lender, my goal is to provide valuable counsel to aid you in your real estate purchase decisions.  Whether your homeownership goal is purchasing your first home or acquiring a new investment, I am here to help!

I began my journey into the world of finance at UCF and graduated from the Burnett Honors College at the University of Central Florida with a BSBA in Accounting in 2013.  Shortly after graduating, I enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard where I served as a specialist for 2 years working my way through the rigorous Officer Candidate School out of Camp Blanding with aspirations of becoming an officer in finance.  Although I ultimately chose to leave the army, my experience shaped the way I conduct business and live my life. I believe in getting a job done right the first time and pride myself in taking the time to communicate effectively with my team.  Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Hooah!

Purchasing my first home was one of my most memorable (and at times nerve-racking) life experiences.  My wife and I spoke with six different lenders before deciding to move forward, and out of those six lenders there was only one who took the time to answer our questions and help us get started with the financing process.  That loan officer inspired me to make the decision to start my career in mortgage lending.  As a first-time homebuyer, I had so much to learn. Having someone who I trusted and who took their time to make sure that I understood the process gave me confidence in my decision to purchase our home.

As your mortgage lender, my goal is to provide you with that same level of service and that same feeling of confidence that I received buying my first home.  I believe that the most integral part of my job is not simply to close your loan, but to provide you with the knowledge you need to be informed and comfortable with the decisions you make.  My promise is to deliver a smooth loan process marked by unsurpassed service and professionalism.  Thank you for putting your trust in me!
