Iowa Finance Authority Announces 2023 Top Mortgage Lenders and Realtors®


(DES MOINES) – The Iowa Finance Authority (IFA) recently announced its 2023 top mortgage lenders and Realtors®. The awards were given to the lending institutions, loan originators and Realtors® who assisted the most homebuyers through IFA programs in 2023.

IFA offers mortgage and down payment assistance programs for Iowa homebuyers through a network of more than 400 lenders throughout the state. These partnerships offer Iowans the convenience of working with their local lender and access to IFA’s down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

In 2023, local lenders assisted more than 2,400 Iowans in purchasing a home using IFA mortgage and down payment assistance programs and more than 65,000 have reached their goal of homeownership through the program since its inception.

“Homeownership not only empowers families to build generational wealth and achieve financial stability, but it is also an economic catalyst, with home sales spurring additional investments in our communities,” said IFA Director Debi Durham.

“I commend our lender and Realtor® partners recognized today for their tireless efforts in serving as the gateway to homeownership for thousands of Iowans.”

“The New American Funding team is honored to be named the Iowa Finance Authority’s top lending institution in 2023,” said Christy Bunce, President of New American Funding. “We’re proud to assist Iowans in making their homeownership dreams a reality and we look forward to assisting even more homebuyers in 2024.”
