About Karen Natapoff

I have been collecting art since my early twenties and I deeply respect the dedication that an artist needs to translate his or her vision to canvas.

In my professional life, I bring the same passion and dedication to finding the best financing solution for you and your family. To me, each loan is its own work of art and determining the best loan for your individual situation is like discovering the right combination of pigments to make a painting come alive. In addition, I am committed to working closely with you until the final stroke of the brush. We can then stand back and admire the work of art we made together!

For decades, my artful approach has consistently helped the people I work with:

  • First-time homebuyers
  • Move-up homebuyers
  • Self-employed borrowers
  • Owners of rental properties

Additionally, Homebridge Financial Services is one of the top privately-held non-bank mortgage lending firms in the US. Their vision is to make the dream of homeownership a reality for every customer.

I make the complex mortgage lending experience simple, transparent and affordable and I offer a diverse line of loan options to give my customers the most appropriate loan to make their home financing dreams a reality!

“It was a tough time to do a refinance and Karen did everything she could to make the process smooth. If it had not been for our relationship, I probably would have abandoned the process. The online tool looked good but didn't serve us well in this case. Suggestion: canvas your processors to see what workflow changes can be made to make the online tool more inline with how they "real world" have to process.”
