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.

"Scott and his team at NFM were extremely helpful. They took the time (probably more than necessary) to explain the process and to answer any and all of the questions that I had during the first time buying process. At no point did I have trouble reaching Scott or any member of the team, which I am extremely thankful for. They allowed the process to go smoothly while minimizing my own personal stress and anxiety of the situation. I am very grateful for their help, and will recommend them to all."
