Alerus Mortgage LogoIf you do not already have financing in place, we recommend you call Mary Taylor of Alerus Mortgage. Mary can analyze your particular construction financing scenario and advise you on a number of options. She will walk you through the loan process — from beginning to end — so you are fully informed about the terms of your construction loan and any end mortgage you may need.


Mary consistently closes all loans on time and comes to clients’ closing. She will secure a competitive rate for you, has more than ten years of experience and is friendly. You will come away feeling confident and relieved that you have a mortgage you can trust.
