A Message From Our Founder, W. Craig Deaton

Gateway Mortgage Corp. is a family owned and operated full service mortgage banker. Through the last four decades, we have grown and navigated our way through some of the toughest financial times our country has ever seen. Where some of our competitors have failed, we have been able to succeed by knowing our customers, treating people fairly and utilizing our common sense, local decision making.

We compete with the largest of financial institutions. Unlike most of our competition, mortgage banking is our ONLY business. We know, in order to be successful, we have to be better than our more diverse competition. Our focus is on customer service – all the way from your initial application through servicing your loan locally.

Even after your loan closes, we are here to help. Unlike some of our larger competition, we will not direct you to a call center. You will always speak to a live person who will get you answers in a timely manner.

Our long-term approach to lending has remained constant since the day Gateway Mortgage opened its doors in 1983. We will give you the best advice and service we can because when you’re successful – so are we.

I invite you to discover our personal approach to mortgage banking. Thank you for the opportunity to earn your business.
