Our Company – America Mortgages
America Mortgages Inc. was created to address the need for comprehensive U.S. residential mortgages for U.S. citizens and Foreign Nationals living overseas.
We offer over 150 U.S. bank and wholesale loan products directly to our international clients. In addition, we offer financing options for commercial, portfolio, bridging, and high-value home financing through specialty lenders in the U.S. and overseas.
America Mortgages is wholly owned by Global Mortgage Group Pte. Ltd. (GMG) an International Mortgage Specialist based in Singapore with offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Manila and Seoul.
America Mortgages offers real estate financing solutions to the U.K, Canada, Australia, France, Thailand, and Hong Kong along with U.S. and connects our International Clients to our network of lenders globally. These include Banks, Pension Funds, Investment Funds, Family Offices, Private Banks, and private lenders around the world.
Our story takes us back over 3 years ago when the co-founders met in Singapore and became friends.
Both being Americans, we identified a serious problem in the world and embarked on a journey to fix it. That is to say, getting an overseas mortgage as a non-resident is extremely difficult, especially for U.S. property – the largest residential property market in the world and one of the most invested by foreigners.
In 2019, we raised Seed Funding from 2 Korean banks as well as well-known investors around the world to use technology to disrupt this space. Our Demo-Day video is our Youtube Channel under “Global Mortgage Group”.
