The principals of AD Mortgage have been in the mortgage business nearly 15 years servicing the South Florida community. We have helped 1000’s of borrowers throughout the years to purchase either a new home or an investment property or to refinance their property to either lower their

current mortgage rate or to give them cash in hand to be used for various purposes. Because South Florida is a multi-cultural area we have a staff of bi-lingual professionals to assist our clients in achieving their financing objectives. AD Mortgage’s PRIME directive is ensuring that our clients have a quick and pleasant experience throughout the entire mortgage process.

We offer mortgages for virtually any type of residential or commercial property, so whether or not your credit is excellent or not we have the program to fit nearly anyone. Remember, AD Mortgage where we believe in the POWER of YES!
