We have also seen some… not-so-great ones. Let’s focus on the positive and share some of our absolute favorite mortgage lenders in the New Orleans area!




#1: Courtlin Donner with NOLA Lending – talk about someone who goes above and beyond for their clients. One of the first questions she asks is, “where do you want to keep your monthly payment?” She then builds out your home buying budget from this info. She will look for every way to save you a few dollars and wants you to only spend what you’re comfortable with! Don’t worry about her office being on the Northshore, she helps home buyers across the metro area. Courtlin will help you long after the sale is over too.


#2: Allison Byrd with Gulf Coast Bank – complex renovation loans? Buying an investment property? Allison can do ALL the hard things too. From first-time home buyers to people buying rentals, she’s got you covered! While she relocated to Baton Rouge, she lived in New Orleans and owns property here too. She gets it.


#3: Randi Barrett with Angel Oak Loans – With creative lending, new condo buildings, and everything in between, Randi covers all the bases for mortgage lending. Responsive and an out-of-the-box thinker, you will be happy to have Randi on your team!


#4: Kyle Simmons  with Eustis Mortgage – The only male mortgage lender to make it onto our list, Kyle will not mansplain the situation to you. However, he will help you understand it better than ever before! Need to work on your credit? Kyle will tell you all the steps you need to take and follow up with you.
