From The Desk of John A. Veenstra

When dealing with financial matters, I believe it’s important that you know something about the company and the Mortgage Consultant with whom you will be speaking.

Toward the purpose of providing that information, I offer the following:

Company Introduction: Approved Funding

Approved Funding Corporation is a privately held MORTGAGE BANKER, a licensed mortgage bank founded in 1987. We have the most advanced resources and technology available and we have the trained, professional MORTGAGE CONSULTANTS using those resources to efficiently and knowledgably meet your wants and needs for mortgage financing. We are dedicated to improving and growing our business and we know that is done by treating everyone as a person. Our clients are our business and we believe in the “customer for life” principal of doing business. A testament to our philosophy and ability and strength is the fact that we are still strong after so many others fell out of the industry after August, 2007 when the subprime mortgages changed the mortgage industry as we knew it.
