About Tony

Although a full-service mortgage professional, Tony Collins is known around town as the "Rehab Loan Guy". Tony has built his 18+ year career around the home purchase and renovation side of the real estate market, focusing on the needs of his buyers, Realtors and builder partners. His motto has always been "Let me show you how to take a house you like and turn it into a home you will love!".

Tony’s mindset is always geared toward helping his clients and partners. Instead of telling people what to do, he listens to their wants and needs and then finds them the options that will achieve their goals. Tony’s philosophy is to always tell the truth, even when the truth is bad news – then he uses his extensive experience and encyclopedic knowledge to explore all financing strategies. He provides the same high level of service to every client – from military veterans applying for VA home loans to homebuilders seeking jumbo construction financing.

When he’s not helping his borrowers, Tony enjoys mentoring his colleagues in the business. He trains other loan officers on how to expand their business and improve their service with a greater understanding of various loan products. This allows his fellow loan originators to offer mortgage programs that many other lenders are unable or unwilling to offer.

Tony didn’t become a rehab loan specialist by accident. He began his professional life working in building inspection and environmental risk assessment. Recognizing that Tony knew homes inside and out, a loan officer friend recruited him to join the lending industry and launch their company’s renovation division. The rest is history.

Tony grew up in Southern California and studied business finance at San Diego State University. He enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, especially at their house on Table Rock Lake.
