Unify Home Lending is Rapid City's newest locally owned and operated mortgage bank.

The company recently branched out from large mortgage company Major Mortgage, an out-of-state owned corporation.

Now, Unify has its own originators, processors, underwriters and is able to do its own closing and funding right here in Rapid City.

The reason for the transition? They say Major Mortgage's agendas and priorities did not always align with their vision and in this case, it is to serve and focus on the people right here at home.

"If you're using a bigger mortgage company, they might not know how loans should be done right here in Rapid City and that's what we think is so important is we have local owners that are going to take care each part of the mortgage business, so we know, we've been in the business a long time, everybody that works here so we know what needs to be done to get the loan done right.," said Diane Staeffler, VP Senior Loan Mortgage Loan Originator at Unify Home Lending.

In addition to offering a variety of loans, Unify wants to help with challenged credit programs, down payment assistance 1st-time home-buyers and loans for construction. They say if you are thinking about buying a home within the next couple of months, you're not alone.

"Fall is a good time, people want to get moved into a house before the holidays come maybe want something bigger, better to have their whole family you know there for the holidays, Spring is a busy time, fall is a busy time so we'll be ready to go," Staeffler said.
