Steve Cooper

Market Manager, NMLS ID#90307

Steve has lived in the Cary/Apex area since 1975 and seen the dramatic changes to the market first hand - from a sleepy little town in the 70's and 80's, to what is now a thriving community consistently voted one of the top places to live and raise a family in the United States. Steve is a graduate of Cary High School (1988) and later earned his bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University with a major in economics. Steve is blessed to live with his wife of over 20 years and his three upper-teen aged children in his hometown. Steve enjoys spending time with his family, working in his yard, bass fishing and bow hunting.

Steve has been a top producing mortgage originator in the triangle market for over 20 years and has held various management positions during his career. Steve has experience with all levels of credit and in all types of mortgage products and programs. With a special ability to relate to people from all walks of life, Steve will work with you to find the best program for your specific long term financial goals. From the first time home buyer just getting started in their career, to the experienced executive that is looking to downsize and buy a vacation home, Steve can help you find the perfect program to fit your needs.

While the majority of Steve’s loans are originated for properties in the triangle market (Cary, Raleigh, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, Clayton, Garner, Knightdale, etc.), Steve is licensed to originate residential mortgages in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Steve and his team work hard to stay in constant communication with their clients throughout the home buying (or refinancing) process. The mortgage process has changed over the past several years but with Steve Cooper as your trusted strategic partner you can rest assured that your mortgage approval "process" will happen efficiently and result in a stress-free, on-time closing.
