Keith Mackey
President

When you are making the big decision to get a mortgage or home loan, you want someone with the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process. Keith Mackey, the founder of 1st Securities Mortgage can help you understand your options and pick a mortgage program that works for you and your family.

Keith Mackey, Founding a Client-Centered Mortgage Brokerage

Keith Mackey has been in the mortgage industry since 1993. When he left a big lender in 2001 and bought a broker’s license, it was with the goal of creating a mortgage brokerage that put clients’ needs over those of the lenders. By working with lenders big and small across the state, 1st Securities Mortgage became a client-centered company, able to deliver a variety of mortgage programs tailored to different customers’ situations and needs. Keith says:

“I love to educate clients on what could be the biggest purchase of their lives. I enjoy making the dream of owning a home a reality and making a stressful process stress-free.”

A resident of Huntington Woods, Keith has an undergraduate degree in communications from Michigan State University. He is an avid golfer.

Available Any Time, Any Day

As part of his commitment to personal service, Keith makes himself available to his clients any day, any time. Whether customers come into the office, call on the phone, or access him through the Internet, they know he will be there to answer all their home-related questions.

Scott Isner
Vice President

Getting a home loan is one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make. With those stakes, you want a loan originator who knows the business inside out and is dedicated to keeping your interests at heart.

Scott Isner, Knowledgeable and Experienced Mortgage Broker

Scott Isner joined his cousin Keith Mackey as a co-owner of 1st Securities Mortgage in April 2001. He left his successful job at a competitor because he believed he could give his customers better service as a broker than tied to any one lender. With over 20 years of mortgage industry experience, Scott knows the business well. He understands that no one loan, or one lender, works for everyone. He is committed to providing personalized lending advice to help his clients through the mortgage process. He says:

“I love being able to help people with the largest financial transaction they will likely ever have. To know they trust me and have confidence in me to get the job done is very rewarding. My clients’ needs always come first and I hope the first transaction we do together will be the start of a long lasting mortgage relationship.”

Scott has life-long ties to West Bloomfield. He graduated from the local high school in 1992 and he still lives in the city. He attended Ferris State University. When he is away from the office, Scott enjoys traveling, hiking, skiing, playing hockey, and exploring the great State of Michigan.

Giving Back to the Community

As Executive Vice President, Scott Isner makes sure 1st Securities Mortgage lives up to its commitment to social responsibility. He sits on the Board of Directors for the Detroit Metropolitan Jewish Community Center, and is a regular supporter of the St. Louis Center, a residential community for disabled adults. Scott is also a member of the Michigan Home Builders Association and Business Networking International’s Greater Royal Oak chapter.
