Phil Caulfield is a Loan Officer with Prosperity Home Mortgage LLC. I have experience with many types of loans, such as conforming, jumbo, FHA, and VA. I have worked with all types of clients, ranging from first- time buyers to high net worth individuals. As a mortgage banker, we are able to offer many different types of loan programs to meet the needs of a wide variety of clients. For example, we offer programs with low down payment requirements, which can be attractive to first-time buyers. We also can help clients who are having a difficult time qualifying with traditional income documentation by utilizing alternative documentation, such as bank statements, to qualify. Interest-only loans have been attractive to high net worth clients. These type of mortgages give the borrower more flexibility in terms of allocating funds into financial vehicles they deem to be the most attractive. The current mortgage landscape requires a tremendous amount of documentation and disclosure. My goal as a Loan Officer is to make the process as painless and as simple as possible. Having 30 years of experience has enabled me to anticipate the issues that may come up during the loan process. I work with my clients upfront to work through these issues so that the surprises during the processing of their mortgage are minimized. I grew up, live, and work in Burlingame. Many of my clients, naturally, are from Burlingame and the surrounding cities such as Hillsborough, San Mateo, Foster City, and Millbrae. I am licensed in the state of California, so I can help people who want to buy or own property anywhere in the state.
