Loan Officers

CalHFA uses a network of hundreds of loan officers to help market and sell its loan products to low to moderate income homebuyers. These loan officers must work for one of our CalHFA Approved Lenders or broker loans through them. We have a Preferred Loan Officer program for our superstars, as well as marketing materials to help spread the word about the work we do. Please browse around for more information.

Single Family Leads Program
