Eric Johnson was born and raised in Central New York. He’s worked in the mortgage industry for nearly two decades and is still as passionate about his career as the day he started.

If Eric had to describe his Loan Originator philosophy, it would be that every transaction requires the same amount of attention and dedication as the one before it. He takes the necessary time to work with his customers to figure out their specific needs, and then structures their financing accordingly.

Eric says he’s excited to work with Homestead “because of the new tools and resources they provide us. Having the newest tools and technology allows me to provide my borrowers with a one of a kind mortgage experience. And at the end of the day, my customers’ satisfaction is the most important thing.”

Because of that, she wants to make sure that all her clients have an amazing experience. Heather says she is excited to work at Homestead Funding because we offer many different loan products. “This allows me to look at my clients’ needs and find the perfect product that is right for them,” said Heather. “Another great thing about Homestead is our support staff.
