Preferred Lending Professionals


Thank you for your interest in the Preferred Lending Professional Program at NeighborWorks® Sacramento.  This is a program where lenders and NeighborWorks® Sacramento work together to provide home purchase opportunities for customers using our down payment assistance loans.  Only lenders who are Preferred Lending Professionals will have access to NeighborWorks® Sacramento’s mortgage assistance programs including CalHome and PAL. 

As a HUD-certified housing counseling agency, we are required to provide at least three lending referrals to our customers when discussing mortgage products.  Instead of limiting the discussion to just three referrals, customers are referred to our website to view the complete list of lending professionals with whom we work.  The lenders on our Preferred Lending Professional list have shown consistent success in using our programs and have all attended in-person training on our loan programs. Customers will have the option to choose any lender they would like to work with.  This program has been in existence since 2014 and after three years we have made improvements to the program.
