Ray Cope approaches his clients’ home financing journey with the same tenacity and grit that he applies to his daily mountain biking routine. “There are inevitably ruts and surprises in the process, but the journey is worthwhile, especially when you finish the trail”, Ray says with a smile.
A veteran of the mortgage industry for almost 20 years, Ray applied his skills and experience in landscape design and implementation to a love of home builders and quickly began processing loans early in his career. Advancing to loan origination in 2005, Ray began to work directly with homebuyers venturing into the growing new construction market in metro Atlanta. He knows how to help answer the myriad of questions new homebuyers have and works diligently with every individual to structure the best loan options for them. Ray has been recognized by his peers a top 1% producer, most notably designated a Top 1% Originator by Scotsman Guide.
At home, Ray spends his free time in besting health and fitness goals, building his own mountain bikes and…mountain biking. His wife, Marisa is a REALTOR® and together they raise their three children, ages 10, 7 and 2.
“There’s nothing more rewarding than to share a client’s dream of closing on their own new home” Ray says, “Especially when that’s followed by a good hour on a mountain bike”. We love Ray’s commitment to mountain biking, fitness and his clients!
Ray explained to me how to get my credit score up to purchase a home, from the beginning to the end I started at 620 ended with a credit score of 720. He explained to me what I needed to pay off to get approved. I would recommend everybody to Ray Cope. ThanksLarry B.
