    Our founders used to be mortgage bankers, yet they didn’t go to their own bank to get a mortgage. Their expertise enabled them to pursue better financial outcomes elsewhere. They built Own Up to allow you to get your mortgage the same way they did.

    Unlike mortgage lenders, our interests are aligned with yours, so we can be objective about assessing your options. In the end, you save some money, we make some money, and the lender makes a loan. Everybody wins.

    We use technology to simplify the home financing process. Our easy-to-use online tools help you evaluate lenders, understand how much home you can afford, compare loan offers, and even update pre-approval letters on-demand — a mortgage industry first.
