Who Are You Working With?

When making a major financial decision, such as home financing, you want to know who you're dealing with. The 1st Securities Mortgage team, from our Executive Loan Originators to the receptionist, is dedicated to providing you with personalized service. That begins with understanding who we are.

You are not simply signing on with a large corporation when you work with 1st Securities Mortgage for your next mortgage or home loan. Every application we receive is assigned to a licensed loan originator, who oversees the file from beginning to end. Because we view your loan application as a collaboration, we want you to know the loan originator you will work with.

Strong support staff is essential for an efficient mortgage brokerage and lending office. This staff, in addition to the Loan Originator assigned to your application, works to ensure that you get the best mortgage program for your financial situation.

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 has been in the mortgage industry since 1993.

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:

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

Scott Isner – Executive 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 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:

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.

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.

It’s one thing for a mortgage professional to tell you how great he is. But if you really want to know how he works, ask his clients.

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.
