Scott Layden, Sr. Mortgage Loan Originator, is dedicated to your financial peace and real estate ownership success.
As a past investor, developer, real estate broker, landlord, and for the last several decades a mortgage originator, Scott brings a multi-faceted skillset to your mortgage purchase and refinance planning.
The Scott Layden Team is known for expertise in execution, understanding client needs, top notch communication, a simple and reliable mortgage process, efficient problem-solving, and on time closings. Our team views mortgages, not as merely a debt to be paid off, but as a financial tool to enhance our clients’ short, medium, and long term financial well-being. We help guide clients through making decisions that are best for them. We balance the goal of “lowest net after tax cost of borrowing” with a client’s other priorities such as cash flow, side investments, and making sure we leave room in your budget for “off application” expenses like tuition, savings, etc.
Scott thrives on helping people find opportunities, savings, insight and profits which might otherwise be overlooked by other loan originators. Once our team has gathered your basic information, Scott will meet with you, educate you, and help you choose the best mortgage loan options specific to your needs.
Scott partners with the best Realtors, CPAs, financial advisors, private bankers (as needed), and insurance agents in the market to help you succeed financially.

"The Scott’s NFM team made the mortgage process so easy amd painless. Barbara went out of her way to quickly forge sticking points that woukd of taken us weeks to straighten out on our own. They do most of the heavy work up front, that way from there it gets easier and easier as the process goes on. In practical terms: Scott, Barb and the team had us clear to close 2-1/2 weeks before our closing date! Unheard of in our books! Not to mention saved us almost $70/month on our mortgage!"
