About Us

Empire America, Inc.

Founded in 1983, Empire America is one of the nation’s premier residential lenders. With corporate offices in Woodland Hills, California, the company employs experienced and knowledgeable professionals, each dedicated to providing the very best in customer service. Empire specializes in providing prime, fixed and adjustable mortgages for the purchase or refinancing of residential property. In streamlining the application and lending process, and thereby reducing expenses, the company easily undercuts larger banks and lending institutions by providing lower interest rates, and lower closing costs without application, processing or lock fees. Getting a mortgage is more than a one-time transaction; it’s a financial decision that impacts your life for years to come. Whether you’re looking to purchase a new home or refinance an existing mortgage, it’s important to have a lending strategy that fits within your larger financial picture. One important consideration in choosing a home financing strategy includes your tax implications. For instance, you may want to maximize your interest deductions, or prefer to limit items to the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). Or perhaps you’re more interested in income you want to offset and direct into charities, trusts and investments. It depends on your individual situation, but it can be an important part of your home financing strategy. While Empire does not provide tax advice, we can suggest home financing strategies that are designed to assist you with your tax concerns. For more insight into the most relevant solutions for you, ask one of Empire’s Mortgage Bankers about incorporating your home financing strategy into your overall wealth management plan, or call Empire America at 866-411-EOA1 (866-411-3621).
