About Us

Over 20 years delivering a better borrowing experience

Since day one at Apex Home Loans, we've been committed to finding you the perfect mortgage to meet your financial goals. Over time, we've built an in-house infrastructure to drive efficiency, a transparent loan process to provide peace of mind, and an unforgettable customer experience. In addition to helping you purchase a home or refinance an existing mortgage, we also manage your mortgage for its lifetime, reward community members who go above and beyond, and drive positive change in our communities. With eight branch locations, Apex is licensed and positioned to service MD, DC, DE, VA, PA, NJ, FL, and WV. 

We started Apex Home Loans because we believed that together we could create a lending institution with a strong foundation, better process, and remarkable customer experiences.”

- Craig Strent, CEO & Co-Founder


Our Core Values

At Apex Home Loans, five core values drive our team:



We approach every interaction from a position of partnership, making it our primary goal to set customers on course to complete financial wellness with a well-planned mortgage. Moreover, we strive to provide our business partners with proactive updates, marketing tools, and valuable educational opportunities.

Accountability, Honesty, & Transparency

Our personal service hinges on the real accountability enabled by our local status. We value transparency and honesty throughout every interaction, open lines of communication, and accessible Apex representatives.

Continuous Improvement, Innovation, & Efficiency

We believe in Kaizen, the Japanese business philosophy of continuous improvement and personal efficiency. We work hard to constantly improve our systems, our practices, and our processes for the benefit of all.


We are committed to making an impact in the communities where we live and work. We encourage humanity above a business agenda, placing value in community engagement, volunteering, and involvement in local civic organizations and boards.

Memorable Customer Experiences

We are committed to a better borrowing experience every time, striving to deliver friendly and personal service, proactive updates, and mortgage resources that make this promise a reality.

Apex in Action

Drives, Volunteering, and Charitable Giving

Apex in Action is our program for doing well by doing good. The program was created to support the organizations and causes our employees value by providing our team with opportunities for giving and volunteering. Whether we’re collecting food, books, school supplies, or coats, our drives have helped combat homelessness, hunger, underserved students, and workforce inequality. Over the past year, we’ve collected 17 boxes of books for Turning the Page, 100 coats for One Warm Coat, business attire for A Wider Circle’s Workforce Readiness program, and numerous boxes of school supplies for Prepare for Success and school districts across MD.

Apex in Action also makes it easy for our employees to volunteer and give back. Whether we’re raising $12,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, collecting candy for the troops through Operation Gratitude, or adopting a family during the holidays through A Wider Circle, there’s always an opportunity to get involved right around the corner. 

Increasingly, the values instilled by Apex in Action have become our culture, grounding our team by giving back and helping our communities. Our team has created deep and meaningful involvement with civic organizations, and we now have representation on 25 such groups across the DMV. We’re also thrilled to be more active locally than ever before, having sponsored over 24 community events over the last year.
