Branch Manager | Loan Officer
Miguel Muniz, Branch Manager and Senior Loan Officer with Cornerstone Home Lending, has a passion to serve others. He lives by Cornerstone Home Lending’s mission statement, which is to use his God-given talents to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Miguel also makes himself available to his real estate partners seven days a week, as he is aware that not all client and referral partners are available during the typical 9-to-5 work schedule.
Miguel has been in the loan origination industry for over 20 years. His heart for service extends to his personal life as well. His extensive experience is a valuable asset to the families that utilize his services through the entire transaction – from application to well beyond the closing.
Miguel has grown his business by building long-term referral partnerships. He has also earned the referrals of life-long clients, considering himself as "Your Lender for Life."
Miguel is proficient in many unique loan products including conventional and government renovation loan programs, down payment assistance programs, and jumbo loan products.
