When you show your people some love, good things happen.

Whether you’re a loan officer, operations staff member, or another part of the Key Mortgage team, we care about the people we hire. As a local, independent, family-owned business, Key Mortgage feels like a big family because that’s exactly what we are. We’re behind you every step of the way in your career and are ready to help you boost your business in any way we can. Support starts day one, so you can focus on what’s most important to you — delivering the highest quality service to your customers.

Why Key Mortgage?

We have a strong foundation and a bright future.

We’ve been helping families become homeowners for more than 30 years. While other lenders struggle with the ups and downs of the industry, we’ve stayed stable. What’s our secret? We invest in our people, and they keep getting better — so our company does, too.



Our loan officers

We’re here to support you, not slow you down. Run your business whatever way works best for you. Plus, we’ll never ask you to share any existing partners or clients.

The Key Mortgage advantage:

  • Award-winning operations team in-house and onsite
  • In-house underwriting
  • Team of investors with no overlays
  • Variety of niche products to fit unique customer needs
  • Affiliation with over 2,400 agents
  • Home-grown leadership; we invest in our team members and promote from within
  • Stability in an ever-changing industry and market
Don’t just take our word for it.

Obviously, we think Key Mortgage is a great place to work (and a great place to work with), but we aren’t the only ones.
