Darren Copeland - Branch Manager

This Is Who I Am:

I love real estate and strategizing with my clients to help them meet their goals. With more than 10 years in the finance industry, my goal is to make the home buying experience easy and stress-free for my clients.

Who Do I Help:

All real estate owners and buyers in the Area who want the best rates, superior service and a knowledgable advisor to help them navigate their home financing.

Real estate professionals who want to grow their business and showcase their properties with the latest marketing and technology available to the real estate market.

This Is How I Help Home Owners and Buyers:

My team works with each client to determine the best finance package for every scenario taking into account not only the impact of the loan on their finances today, but 5 and 15 years down the line.

We take into account their personal finances, credit, and goals to create the best action plan to set them up for success in the future. We are problem solvers and our passion is helping those through the buying process.

This Is How We Help Real Estate Professionals:

Our team loves working with Realtors to help them build their business with video marketing, advanced listing presentations, and social media training just to mention a few. To get more information about how we can help you, call us at (816) 268-4025 or check out www.kcloantips.com

Securing a Mortgage

We're not your typical loan officers at LeaderOne Financial. We're passionate about helping you every step of the way. We provide free consultations where clients can get advice on things like:

  • How much mortgage can I afford?
  • Can I refinance my home?
  • Can I buy even with poor credit?
  • How can I restore my credit?
  • How can I lower my monthly house payment?
  • Do I qualify for any special loan programs?
  • How can I get a pre-approval letter so I can start home shopping.

And these are just a few of the questions our team receives.
