Integrity

Traverse founded MSC to fight for the borrower, and be their advocate. MSC will never receive compensation from a lender to send a deal to them without the borrower's knowledge. This is common in the industry, and creates misalignment.

Passion
The relationships Traverse creates with clients if more of a partnership than a third party arrangement. Traverse has often been referred to as "part of the team".
Knowledge

MSC is meeting with, speaking with and researching where lenders are hot and where they are not at all times. Understanding who is most aggressive with the type of loan request the client has is top priority. Without a doubt MSC's fee pales in comparison to the savings the client will earn over the term of the loan.

Unbiased

We will work with lenders that are in our client's best interest, not our own. Creating that partnership and alignment with our clients is rule number one.
