But where do you turn for trusted guidance, and for someone to lead you through? You can rely on me, a mortgage professional in Howard County, Maryland, with more than 25 years of experience.

"David Koonce is professional, personable, humorous, knowledgeable, flexible and thorough. I always felt he was as invested in my dream of purchasing a new home as I was.

A Mortgage Should Be Personalized
I view home buying or refinancing as a piece of your financial puzzle. I’m going to use the knowledge I’ve gained over more than two decades to recommend the most appropriate loan and terms for your individual financial situation. For example, if you’re a borrower with the cost of college on the horizon, a longer-term loan may keep cash in your pocket now. If you’re planning home improvements, a lower down payment could help you keep cash on hand. Every situation is different, and I’m the kind of person to get to know you before providing any recommendation.
What I Can Provide for You
Mortgages for Home Purchases
With me by your side, you’re going to feel confident that you have explored the loan types available and know the terms that work best for you. You can begin your home search with a pre-approval letter in hand. In many cases, an advance approval will give you a leg up in making a competitive offer. I will help you with this. Plus, you will know the price range that aligns with your budget and the amount of the loan you can secure. From the application to settlement, I’ll communicate regularly with you, the underwriter and your Realtor®, so that you can stay up to date and ready at every stage. This level of communication is the key to keeping everyone calm, confident and well-informed throughout the process. Learn more >>
Home Loan Refinancing
Refinancing your home loan can create the opportunity to spend less each month on your mortgage and save thousands over the life of the loan. Shortening the term of your loan can lead to even more savings. If the value of your home has increased significantly over time, refinancing can be a way to tap into the equity of your home to pay for expenses like higher education, eliminating debt or home renovations. I can talk you through the possibilities, while looking at your larger financial picture to guide you in your decision. Learn more >>
Loan Programs for Military Members
I am a Certified Military Mortgage Specialist, trained in coordinating loans for eligible service members, veterans and surviving spouses. Home loans backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can result in thousands of dollars in savings in closing costs, and even tens of thousands over the course of a loan. Some home loan brokers may not mention the option of VA loans because of their additional requirements.
A few benefits of VA loans include:
"David’s sense of urgency through the refinance process was exceptional. Every message and question was quickly and thoroughly addressed. The entire process was transparent and seamless, thanks to David and his team. He has completely raised the bar based on our previous experiences. I would not go to anyone else in the future."
