Iowa Finance Authority Names 2019 Top Mortgage Lenders


Iowa Lenders Recognized for Outstanding Efforts in Assisting Homebuyers

DES MOINES – The Iowa Finance Authority (IFA) recently announced its 2019 top mortgage lenders. The awards were given to the lending institutions and loan originators who assisted the most homebuyers through IFA programs in calendar year 2019.

The Iowa Finance Authority offers mortgage and down payment assistance programs through a network of more than 400 lenders throughout the state. These partnerships allow Iowans the convenience of working with their local lender and access to IFA’s unique homeownership programs.

More than 2,600 Iowans purchased a home through the assistance of IFA programs in 2019, more than any other year in IFA’s history.

“Our lender partners are the gateway to homeownership for thousands of Iowans each year,” said IFA Executive Director Debi Durham.

I congratulate the institutions and loan originators who earned the top lender distinction and look forward to working with them to assist even more homebuyers in 2020, IFA Executive Director Debi Durham.

“We have a successful, long-standing partnership with the Iowa Finance Authority which allows Iowans in a wide-range of areas access to their affordable mortgage and down payment assistance programs,” said Iowa Bankers Mortgage Corporation President Dan Vessely. “We’re proud of our role in helping Iowans achieve their dream of homeownership through our member banks.”
