Welcome To DeafMortgage.com - About Us

For a combination of more than 20 years in fire protection and mortgage assistance, we have helped deaf and hard of hearing Americans with their needs.

As many know, we began serving the community by representing the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) in the area of fire protection in the early 1980s.  We assisted in the development of industry and product standards for visual fire alarms and visual smoke detectors, with representation on various codes and standards writing committees.

Subsequently, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) established fire protection requirements for persons who are deaf and hard of hearing.  Many states now have statutes requiring fire protection for persons who are deaf and hard of hearing.  The ADA added additional requirements based upon standards written by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A117 Committee.  We are members of those committees, representing the NAD.

While establishing requirements for fire protection and accessibility for people who are deaf and hard of hearing for the past 24 years, we became involved with other areas of concern.  We noted many instances in several states where deaf residents were unfairly treated in home mortgages.  Some paid higher rates of interest; some were misled into thinking their mortgages would be paid in 15 years, only to learn they had a balloon which was due in 15 years; some would have done well with fixed rate mortgages, while others would have been better served by programs with adjustable rate or interest only mortgages; and still others could have benefited with a tailored combination of programs.  And, all could have been better served with an interpreter; a must in our organization.

We have changed the way the mortgage industry does business with the community.   We offer a short form ONLINE APPLICATION to provide speed and convenience; video phones and/or video phone relay service for clarity and explanations. See Apply Online.

Each loan program is specifically tailored to the needs of that individual or family. We have a tried, tested, proven, and simple system for each client. Every question is answered. Each client is treated with dignity and respect. We have access to many loan programs, with service for all 50 states, to provide deaf and hard of hearing residents nationwide, with the same uniform and outstanding services. No matter where you live, we are here to help you. Referral business is how we have grown.
