about me

As a husband of 20 years, a father to two beautiful children (a boy and a girl to boot!), and a mortgage banker with 200 Zillow reviews and 20+ years of experience, I’m bringing not just considerable knowledge and expertise to the table, but an unmatched level of customer service and an understanding of the importance of doing what’s right for your family as well.

My customers know I pride myself on being accessible at all times - my line is always open for you, and I dedicate myself to understanding your unique situation. I am passionate about focusing my efforts on helping families navigate the mortgage marketplace, and am available for you to call, text, or email at any time!

Drawing on my experience, I’m uniquely situated to honestly and accurately advise my clients on financing programs that fit not just their immediate mortgage needs, but their overall financial profile. My expertise includes programs such as Jumbo, Conventional, FHA, Refinancing, credit repair, and rapid credit rescoring.

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or an experienced investor, I’m here to help you navigate the current mortgage landscape and understand the mortgage landscape at large, enabling me to provide you with the best guidance possible. I strive to educate my clients while keeping an open line of communication and providing honest insights into the mortgage marketplace in order to make the process as painless and seamless as possible.

If you make me your first call, I’ll be able to answer all of your mortgage questions and make sure you take advantage of the best options available to you. My experience gives me the know-how to understand all loan programs and where they’re offered – meaning I could help get you the best loan for you, even if it’s not at my bank. When you work with me, I’ll be your Banker for Life!

client testimonials


Darren Kaplan worked with us from the beginning of the mortgage process through to the end. We were walked through each step and we were kept up to date with each outcome. Darren is reliable and is available 24/7 for questions or concerns. This made the process less stressful.



Darren of Total Mortgage was absolutely amazing. He was quickly able to give us a pre-approval for our dream home and we were able to close in a little less than 5 weeks. Darren and his team worked very hard to ensure we met the hard deadline.



Darren went above and beyond to make sure that the underwriting and closing process were seamless. He was always available and constantly checked in to make sure I was on target. He is awesome!
