If time measures the value of a company, then Eustis Family of Companies has set the bar. We’re excited to share that we are celebrating our 65th year in business!


Only 8% of all companies with 20+ current employees formed over 50 years ago are still in business today. In the financial world, that drops to 6%!


We're proud to say we are stronger than ever at 65 years old and counting.


In these 65 years, mortgage interest rates have been as high as 18.63% (National Average) and as low as 2.65%, and Eustis has survived and thrived in every environment.


Eustis Family of Companies has been in business since 1956 and is headquartered in New Orleans, LA. New Orleans City Business voted Eustis one of the best places to work in 2020, and we couldn't agree more. We lead by full engagement, by example, and by empowering our employees. Our leaders help each other reach their full potential, and our passion for serving guarantees that we constantly develop new generations of leaders to care for our clients.


Besides our beloved state of Louisiana, we're licensed to process home loans in 19 states. Eustis Family of Companies is comprised of Eustis Mortgage, Verity Mortgage, Finance Home America, Legacy Mortgage, and Prosperity Mortgage.


Sixty-five years ago, Eustis was established with a mission to fulfill two goals that all great organizations have in common: a low staff turnover rate and a high percentage of repeat customers.


As a modern and innovative organization, we must always be a driver for change and continue to grow with our ever-evolving world. Eustis believes our diversity and passion unites us in our goal to challenge current processes and technology continuously, so we're always striving to make the dream of homeownership a reality for everyone.


The needs of our clients are the most critical elements of our organization. Eustis's most robust form of advertising is word of mouth. Many of our clients have returned time after time since we opened our doors 65 years ago. They know they can always rely on us for the information and service they expect and deserve.


"Having the ability to lead a company with a 65-year history is rare. My favorite part of any day is when I meet someone for the first time that received their first mortgage with Eustis more than 50 years ago. The same customer reviews exist today and tell the familiar story of our dedicated teams that strive daily to serve our community."

Robert Eustis passed down Eustis Family of Companies to his daughter, Kate deKay, in 2018. She was trained from the bottom to the top and has grown into an extraordinary leader. Kate's goal for Eustis is to ensure that we serve as many people as possible in financing a house that they can call "home." She focuses on providing technology that makes the mortgage process as seamless as possible for Eustis's customers while ensuring that employees provide a high level of customer service. Kate wants clients to feel that they have a trusted source for advice on the mortgage and home buying processes.


Helping clients realize the American dream is our purpose, but we won't stop there. We recognize that we have a responsibility to do more. Eustis hopes to inspire others to change the world inside and outside the housing market. We love actively helping our hometown thrive. We are proud to say that since the beginning of the pandemic, we've donated to over 50 non-profits.


Eustis has a passion and drive to serve our community and employees, which is how we've been able to operate for so long. Whether it is a new technology or new regulations, we have the tools and team to simplify the loan process and create a great home buying experience for you. We will continue to differentiate ourselves through our positive values and ability to exceed our customers' expectations.


We look forward to serving you for the next 65+ years.
