Since its inception, Hop Mortgage has since helped over a thousand people just like you by providing…

  • Lowest Rates: We search through 40+ wholesale banks to find you the lowest interest rates.
  • Closing Fast: Our 18 day close of escrow can be the difference of whether your offer gets accepted in this overly competitive market.
  • Service: By you having our cell phone numbers, we are in direct contact with you every step of the way. We are a small business, not a corporation, and we like it that way.

Hop History…

Hop Mortgage is a boutique brokerage in that was started by 3 friends with over 45+ years of mortgage related experience. They saw an opportunity to offer lower interest rates to the consumer by brokering loans directly to wholesale banks. Wholesale banks save on costs by having no retail locations, and hence offering lower rates as compared to the big retail big banks with larger overhead costs.

What Clients Are Saying

Tony is FAST! He is true to his word and got the job done- even faster than we had expected! You need a knowledgeable loan officer to work with in this climate and Tony did an amazing job at explaining what we needed to do, was on top of everything from the get go, gave us options for different situations and made the home buying process fun and stress free! We highly recommend using Tony and will refer him to all of our friends and family. In fact, we are now refinancing one of our other properties and we wouldn’t want to use anyone else. Thanks again Tony, you are one of the best!

The market has been super competitive for trying to buy a home where I live in San Diego. Tony and our our agent put in 7-8 different offers before we finally got one accepted, which included a very short close of escrow of only 17 days. Tony not only got it done, we closed early! I did not think it was possible to close as fast as we did. My family is incredibly thankful for his and his team’s hard work to get it done. He did everything he said he could do and more. Thank you, Tony!
-Monica Simone



Tony was very helpful. I talked to at least a 20 different mortgage brokers and he had the very best rate for the lowest amount of money. Thanks Tony!!
-Matt L.



Our refinance process with Tony was very smooth. He helped us refinance a couple of our home loans with different issues and was able to do so seamlessly and without issue. After having a bad experience with another mortgage lender, we were skeptical; however, we were pleasantly surprised with Tony’s professionalism, knowledge, and dedication. He is detailed, thorough, and great with follow up. We recommend him with confidence.

Tony was amazing and helpful during our refi. He offered alternatives. He took the time to listen to what we wanted and needed.
