CalHFA uses a network of hundreds of 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
The California Housing Finance Agency receives hundreds of phone calls and web hits every month, and in the past has directed callers and web visitors to branch offices of CalHFA Approved Lenders. In order to better serve potential homebuyers, CalHFA has implemented the CalHFA Single Family Leads Program to direct callers to qualified CalHFA Loan Officers.
